if you both have faith that this will work and make God the center of everything - it really can work. it is a very hard path, but it is not a situation os strength or weakness. If you both have a strong love and can fill the voids of a regular relationship with God then it can last. Me and my love make God the center of our relationship and even if he never gets out we know we will be together one day in heaven. Every day God shows me in some way or another that he is who I am mean to be with. It is definately amazing.
You can love the guy regardless if he's in prinson or not.
If it doesn't bother you having a relationship this way, then go for it.
I think that's a brave thing to do as most of us would walk away at just the idea of it. You must obviously know that your relationship can never been normal but if you feel you can live without all those things normal couples do then good luck to you both. My situation is no where near yours but I do understand the thought of not being able to do what everyone else does. If you read some of my stories I talk about a married man and me no its not a proper relationship more a friendship going a bit far but saying that there are so many places we can not go as he is known there and things we will never do together but that does not stop me having deep feelings for him. Just seeing him go past me in a vehicle or have him wink at me when he thinks no one is looking always makes me smile and feel happy. Good Luck both of you. You are and will have to be a very strong woman.
I hope my post does not offend you
but I think you are setting yourself up for failure.
You will not be able to have a life with someone who is in prision without the possibility of parole. I understand staying friends but for a romantic relationship you are in for a tough ride that may reap few rewards.
I'm not going to call someone strong or weak for "standing by the man" they love. You are a person with feelings and emotions and I just think if you were someone in my life that I loved and cared for, I would ask them to take a deeper look into themself to see what is drawing them to this person
I dont doubt your sincerity. But you have chosen a really hard path for yourself with no absolute way to know if he would stand by you if he had options. I hope thats going to be enough for you.
it just means you are setting yourself up for lonlieness and dissappointment. dont abandon him, guys in prison need outside contacts (trust me i know) but the romance will never go anywhere.
Get a proper life for yourself. Are you afraid of having a proper relationship with a man you can spend your actual day to day life with? A man you can share a bed with, have children with, grow old with? You only have one life honey, and it's not a rehearsal. The guy in prison has already f**ked up his, so don't let him do the same to yours
