Married prisoners only have contact with spouses that are not in prison. To my knowledge if two people (man and woman) are married and they are both even in the same prison they have no conjugal visits and almost no access to each other.
Not only that, it is true the prison has no say who they can marry, but they certainly have a say over conjugal visits. they have to be earned regardless and most states no longer have them.
You aren't being serious, are you?
married prisoners can have over night visits... so what difference does it make if they are married to the opposite sex or not? If they have a right to have an spouse stay over night they have a right... the fact they are the same sex or different does NOT matter...
Your whole premise is wrong because gay marriage is legal in some states in the U.S.A and maybe other countries. So your initial statement is flawed i.e. you say it will never be legal when obviously it is already and spreading.
I really don't know , I have never heard anybody say anything about if they can nor can't. I think straight prisoners can.
You just made me all the more for guy marriage. Seeing as our correctional system is the worst nightmare ever inflicted on our society and no one knows how to fix it, at least there will be someone getting something out of it.
