I Have a Husband In Prison

    My husband called me today

    "The Worst Is the Waiting..."

    ... waiting to know when it's possible for him to be released. We had just been married about a month before his arrest. I love him and miss him constantly. He made a CD that I listen to frequently - he has an amazing voice. I worry about talking to others about my situation in...

    The Sisterhood

    It's been about a year since he went away. Another year, maybe two, before he comes home. I am certainly not an expert, but I have (sadly) become accustomed to the written and unwritten codes of conduct by which a prison visitor must abide. I've watched countless comrades...

    I was that Husband. Not a day goes by that i don't think about the harm I caused. Reading your comments allows me see just how gut wrenching it was for my wife. She left me as a result of my arrest and I can't blame her. At first I was angry, then bitter, then sad, and finally...

    Where Would We Be Without The Love Of A Woman Standing Behind Her Man Even When He's Wrong

    Well I have known my husband for 6 years. I met him in our local bowling alley. I'm normally a shy girl who didn't really go up to guys and just start up a conversation, but I was playing pool and noticed him standing in the corner with his friends. Something in my head said go...

    Who Walks In My Shoes?

    My fiance has been in federal prison for 8 months. I won't say he's innocent, but I can tell you that what he's going through is unnecessary; essentially, he's paying for his past mistakes. From over a decade ago. And that he's already served time for. But they wanted to snag...
