Most former U.S. presidents don't live to see their biopics. Former First Lady and secretary of state Hillary Clinton will get to see three before she even has the chance to win her party's nomination. In addition to the buzzy Hollywood treatment coming up with Rodham, NBC and CNN announced last month that they had their own HRC projects in the pipeline. All three are still months, if not years, away. But they have collectively generated enough controversy and casting speculation to carry us through until their official press cycles begin, at which point we should just be gearing up for the primaries again. If we play our cards right, we will have managed to talk about Clinton for the entirety of her post-cabinet, pre-campaign hiatus and speaking tour without interruption. (Point: 24-hour news cycle.) Here's a quick and dirty guide to Hillary Clinton movies to get you through.

Dating Coach Laurel HouseAdam Levine is engaged! 3 weeks after getting back with his ex, he proposed. But does that happen in the real world. Did they address the reason for the breakup? Have they healed from the distrust that occurs from the simple act of leaving?
When getting back with your ex, you need to realize that this is not a new rosy relationship. Whether it was an issue of cheating, losing interest, bad timing, or something else, you broke up because you were broken, not bent. Before you can move forward, you have to move back and address the issues, fix the break, and regain trust.
But here's where it gets tricky, even the sheer act of leaving creates distrust because you have created an unstable environment. How does he know that you won't pick up and leave again, or vice versa. How does he know that when times get tough or you don't get what you want, that you won't just ditch him again? If you don't have trust in a relationship, you don't have anything.

The Four of Pentacles card reversed suggests that the time may soon be at hand where you have to change your mind or focus, or let go of the clutter or craving. Try to loosen up, give until it hurts or throw it away altogether. But remember that your motivations need to come from a place of humility and understanding. If you are giving just to satisfy ego concerns, the situation may become even trickier. If the situation is destructive or the collection no longer offers pleasure, you need to step up and be the bigger person. Think abut what benefits everyone in this situation.
friendI recently got sucked into the love saga that is Giuliana & Bill on Netflix, and I have to admit that I was begrudgingly jealous of their seemingly steadfast and perfect union. Pretty much every scene seems to center in on them doing some sort of couples' activity together, hands clasped and staring adoringly into each other's eyes. "You're my best friend," Giuliana said in one scene, playfully bumping Bill's shoulder as they flirted on-camera. Their relationship is cute and inspirational, seeing them through the trials of infertility and cancer, but watching it unfold via my phone on my elliptical every night, I couldn't help but wonder - is it normal or even healthy for your spouse to be your best friend?
Absolutely not, says Dr. Rachel Needle, a psychologist at the Center for Marital and Sexual Health of South Florida.

I stumbled upon an article on The Huffington Post about divorce. It touched upon 5 of the worst mistakes people make during a divorce. As I scanned them I thought of some of the things that I did right. Because when you are going through a divorce it's easy to think about all of the things you did wrong. People are quick to point them out for you and oftentimes we can be pretty hard on ourselves. Then there are some things I wish I did differently, primarily the freaking out part (#4). My biggest fear was that my child would pay for my poor choices but I quickly learned that I didn't have time to sit and worry. I had a life to live and create for me and my child.

On Monday, Reddit user Malcolm Collins, 26, a graduate student in Palo Alto, California, proposed to his girlfriend Simone Smith by posting a gallery of humorous memes on Reddit's “Advice Animals” section under his user name SirTechnocracy. The memes bore messages such as “I used to have reservations about marriage and they’re gone” and “Brace yourself: A ring is coming.” It then linked to a secondary gallery that featured 18 art pieces commissioned from around the world. Each slide represented an intimate moment in the couple’s relationship—their first movie, their first date, and so forth.

It can be frustrating and confusing looking for the love of your life and if you're the type of person who enjoys meeting new people, going on multiple dates is probably a lot of fun. If you're more shy or reserved, these first dates could be stress-inducing and even more so when you can't figure out why you didn't get asked on a second date. I asked relationship and dating experts if they could share some of the top reasons men and women don't get asked to go on a second date and guess what, it may not be all your fault. If you've been on more first dates than second ones, there may be a good reason why. Click through for 7 reasons you didn't get that second date! -By Devan McGuinness

A few months ago, my husband and I were cleaning out the storage room in our basement. It was full of boxes on boxes of old stuff. While going through the boxes, we came across some super embarrassing things. We started dating 14 years ago when I was 17, still in high school and apparently really, really romantic. I forgot how annoying people can be when they're newly in love, and apparently I was one of those people. I think when you're deep in that gushy-love stage, you don't really think too much about it, but trust me - when you're out of that honeymoon phase, these things all people do when they're newly in love is just annoying to other people.

Two-year-old Logan Stevenson wasn't your typical best man. Instead of holding the rings for safekeeping, he clutched his favorite teddybear, "Bun Bun," during the ceremony; he couldn't give a toast at the reception, and in fact, he slept through most of it. But his presence alone surpassed all of the bride and groom's hopes.
You see, Logan is terminally ill and suffers from a rare disease called Fanconi anemia, along with leukemia and other medical complications. His parents, Christine Swidorsky and Sean Stevenson, originally planned to wed in July 2014. However, after receiving a diagnosis that their precious son has a mass in his only remaining kidney (and weeks to live), they decided to get married as a family - while Logan is still with them.
In just a week, they organized their new backyard nuptials - which took place in Jeanette, Pennsylvania on Saturday, August 3 - thanks to a tremendous outpouring of support from theirRead More »from Boy Passes Away After Being Parents' Best Man

The Ten of Chalices card suggests that you should celebrate the completion of a journey, transformation or commitment. It's time to back up the ones you love while giving them roots and wings. You can expect the collective sensation of having finally made it as one big happy family. Perhaps the most important lesson to be gleaned from this sense of fulfillment is to simply enjoy being in the moment. Honor and recognize your inner child through spontaneous and passionate expressions. You know that home, happiness and family are where the heart is. This sense of pride and joy may come from a focus on common values, a romantic desire sated or a dream achieved. Either way, you have an opportunity to share the love, express gratitude, expand your relationship and appreciate the stormy road that might have led to this renewal and wholeness.
