Would you marry someone incarcerated?

Would it matter how long he had to serve or what he was serving for?

Have you ever written a letter to a prisoner?

I have never written to a prisoner.  And I am married already but I supposed if I wasn't that it is not out of the realms of possibility.  It would depend on what they had done, like if they had hurt or killed a child or had been in prison for hurting woman, then I would have to say NO WAY!  I can forgive many things even sometimes murder, but the things I said above I could not ever get past so I would not even talk to them or date them let alone marry them.

No!  I have had friends in prison and have visited.  It is just not worth the aggravation, IMO.  You are more a prisoner while visiting than the prisoner themselves.

Nope. What can they offer me? They can't even live in society.

Nope, I think anyone that would marry someone in jail has serious mental problems.  Even someone accused of a serious crime, like Drew Peterson, that girl that is engaged to him after he is accused of killing wife #2 and #3 deserves what she gets.

I wouldn't marry someone who is/was a prisoner. Anyone who has done hard time obviously did something that required federal penatentery and I wouldn't want something bad to happen to me.  If it was jail like someone got a DUI and was in for 30 days that is different but someone who raped and killed someone, or someone who robbed a bank... heck no!! I would NEVER put myself into a situation where I could get in trouble 


I'm a formula feeding, pacifier using, circumcising, pro-choice mom. I don't care how you feed your child as long as you feed your child. I turned my son's car seat around to face forward because rear facing does have weight limits! I don't believe everything the internet tells me and I listen to advice but it does not mean I'll take it.

i wouldn't marry someone while they were incarerated.  so many women visit my offenders wanting to marry them.  i am like, seriously?  i have had some of my officers dating offenders, get fired (if caught), only to end up marrying them when they get out.  weird.  i guess for me it would depend on what they were serving time for.  i have never written a letter to a prisoner...don't have to, i work with them, so i see them all the time, lol.

No, my one grandfather was a judge and the other was the chief of police. There are some very mean people out there.

No,no,what kind of life would that be. I'd rather be single than marry someone in prison.

NO! Nor would I stay married to a man who was sent to prison. Sorry not my thing.
