I Have a Husband In Prison

the ones who love him suffer also. 710 People

    I've been with my boyfriend

    for six wonderful years. He is the other half of my soul and the person who understands me the best out of everyone else I know. He's told me since shortly into our second year together that he wants to get married. The only reason we haven't yet is due to my own self and...

    My journey started 18 months ago

    when my fiance was sentenced to 29 months in prison. I was devastated, heart broken and I cried almost every day. I thought my life was over, and I couldn't go on without him. Well, 18 months later, I've had a change of heart. I know people make mistakes, but he went to prison...

    One Phone Call In a blink of an eye your life

    In a few hours my husband gets released

    and since we married while he was in prison we'll finally get to have our little honeymoon. How am I going to sleep tonight? It's surreal that finally we'll be able to be together.

    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...

    My baby has been released!

    Now the real challenge is keeping him out of trouble! Any suggestions or advice? I know it's 99% his decision but if I can prevent him from reoffending I will get to continue to live happily with him in freedom.

    Our anniversary is Tuesday,

    and we can't see other, so I am missing him. I remember the doctor telling him that he is dying, and even through his pain, he was smiling at me. I asked him how he could be smiling, and he said "even when he is leaving this earth, he will have a smile on his face for me". I...
