My fiance is in jail, has been for a while now. We write back and forth all the time, he calls, and we are about to start emailing again. I'm just ready to break, I work everyday to hold it all together, and I can't seem to find the time to go visit him. Plus he is in prison in a different state. I'm just at the point that the letters aren't enough. His t-shirts aren't comforting anymore. I love him so much, words can't even explain. I'm a very affectionate person and when he was home, he was home everynight .and nights were our time. We would lay in bed and cuddle and talk all night. As soon as I would get my son tucked in,we would just go cuddle up. And lately I just kinda feel empty. I was strong for a year and a half but now, I just feel empty and lost. I truly feel he is my other half, and he did everything for me. Always surprised me with flowers and if I cooked then he would clean up. But I'm just starting to feel lost.
Advice anyone?

How much longer until he's out? I don't think I could ever be with someone in prison. I guess it's kind of sort of like when SO is deployed. I feel lonely too.

Um no. That is nothing like a deployment. Please don't compare criminals to our soldiers. YOU should know better. :-(

I am sorry you are having to go through this... But you refer to ds as your son... Does that mean df isnt his dad?... If he isnt I would definitely cut ties and leave... Not only are you not happy but having a criminal in my home with my kids just wouldnt fly!

Saying that you feel lost when your so is deployed isn't comparing a criminal to your soldier, it's comparing the emptiness to the emptiness and there is nothing wrong with that!

I agree...some ppl here take things way out of context.

Op I know it's hard you just have to decide if its worth it. What's he in there for? How much longer? Is that your child's father?

I have no advice for you. After 18 months I had to give up. I just couldn't take it anymore. I also opened my eyes and realized I didn't want my children around a criminal (especially not what he did, no he's not a sex offender)

If you truly want the relationship to work check out prison talk. It's like cafemom for people in relationships with prisoners
