Vows - Straight To The Heart

Introducing Mr and Mrs
Delano Forbes

If the groom was the least bit anxious, there were no outward signs of frayed nerves to suggest it. Richard Howard Delano Forbes Jr, looking absolutely smart in a cobalt blue Carlton Brown tuxedo, was a picture of calm waiting in the front pew of the Webster Memorial United Church for the much-antic ...

Parental attitudes
may contribute to
kids’ chronic

CHILD rearing practices and attitudes could be contributing factors when kids have chronic constipation issues, according to a new study from the Netherlands. "Stool-withholding and behaviour problems are common in constipated children, and raising a child with chronic constipation is very challenging," said Marieke van Dijk, who led the study. "Parent-child interaction problems may easily occur which may further perpetuate the chronic constipation," van Dijk, a clinical psychologist at Emma C ... Read More

Pregnancy on pause

By KIMBERLEY HIBBERT | Monday, November 17, 2014    

EIGHTEEN years into her marriage, Veronica has resigned herself to the realisation that she will probably never have children. At 40, her biological clock is winding down, and though many 40-year-olds have children, with a 48-year-old husband, her chances are dim. "It's not for want of trying or praying or hoping," Veronica tells All Woman. "The doctors see nothing medically wrong with either of us. I guess we just haven't been blessed." Infertility affects millions of couples worldwide, lead ... Read More

Natalie soars

By KIMBERLEY HIBBERT | Monday, November 17, 2014    


NATALIE Lue-Fung doesn't look like someone who has ever had to struggle. In fact, her coiffed tresses, perfect nails, effervescent smile and regal demeanour scream privilege. But the entrepreneur and success coach will tell you that she didn't always have it together; in fact, as a youngster, she grew up in foster homes and faced homelessness. "I was homeless at 15 and I had my first child at 16. I would go to my friends' houses and stay until night then sleep over because I had nowhere else t ... Read More

YOUNGER BEAU hurting my head

Monday, November 17, 2014    

Dear Counsellor, I have been in a relationship with a young man for a year and eight months. He's seven years younger than I am. I guess we have moved past the honeymoon stage because he's a totally different person from the man he was a month ago. The texts and calls are not as frequent as before. Phone calls are short with a quick 'love you' at the end. The visits have been reduced to once per week. I keep asking if he's found someone else or if he's back with his baby's mother, but he keeps ... Read More

Is your online boyfriend A CON ARTIST?

Monday, November 17, 2014    

ALL it takes is a friend request, Christian Mingle message or Tweet for some people to find long and lasting love on the Internet, even if they've only seen photos of their betrothed. However, all that glitters is not gold, and the brewing romance online could easily turn into a predator-and-prey relationship if you're not careful. Relationship counsellor Wayne Powell said Internet dating is a route many individuals take because of the freedom it allows them. "The online dating service is usu ... Read More

Mom wants deceased father's name off BIRTH CERTIFICATE

By Margarette Macaulay | Monday, November 17, 2014    

Birth certificate

Dear Mrs Macaulay, My son was born in 2012 but before he was born his father died. At birth I gave him his father's name. Now I would love to change it to my name. I have been to the RGD and they told me I have to get an order from a judge at the Family Court. I went to the court but someone there told me that it can't be done like that, and that it's best to get it done by having the father's parents come in and act on his behalf. However, I am not in contact with any of his family now. If the ... Read More

My lover's gone...

Monday, November 17, 2014    

NOT all fairy tales have a happy ending and while we may clutch at straws for hope, the time will come when we have to accept that the bliss of our romance has ended and the relationship is no more. For many, this time will come after months, even years, of trying everything to get a lover back. Then will come the lightbulb moment, when you're forced to accept the truth and move forward. Below some readers share the moment they knew the lovers they were fighting to hold on to would never retur ... Read More

The right multivitamins for your condition

Monday, November 17, 2014    

MANY times our diets are less than ideal and need to be supplemented with vitamins to supply all the nutrients needed for optimal health and wellness. But choosing the right vitamins can be difficult, especially when the problem is singular and we don't want to treat a single problem with a dose of multivitamins. The pharmacy's vitamin aisle can be intimidating, but this week we'll share what you really should be buying for your particular condition. General, laparoscopic and bariatric surgeo ... Read More
