  • I understand why your family is upset, but you have to follow your heart. Is he willing to change? And I mean not just SAY he is going to, but really NOT do ANYTHING that will put him in prison again. Sometimes it's just not worth it. If you don't think he's going to give up his criminal ways, you'd be better off to move on.....

  • I would not like this for my girls and they are very young. Why is he in prison, how will he help prvide a home and contribute to your family, and will he likely end up in prison again, once he is out? It seems you are picking a very hard road to travel. Were you together before he went in, or is this something that happned after with letter writing? The best predictor of future behavior is that of the past so beware!

  • If it walks like a duck, and sounds like a duck, it might be a duck, there is a good chance it is a duck. Trust your family this time around and take a break to get more objective. If you can't trust your family, find an objective counselor, who will have your best interest at heart.

  • You never said WHY he was in prison. He must have done something illegal to get there! Do you want that for your children? Think about it...
