Description:
Many years ago (in my early 20's) I can remember meeting women with husband/boy friend in jail/prison and I would ask my self a series of questions and kind of look at them in pity, then wonder why they would put them self's in that position. Then I asked my self why they stayed in the relationship.
Now being in the position for 1 1/2 years and when he gets out we are going to start to date again to get to know each other again, I am curious as to what other mom's opinions are. Thank You for your time

    Isnt Love grand!lol.. My daughters father was in for 3 yrs,we werent together for 5,similar situation as u mentioned,except he has no other kids..now we get along and so far he is different,and maybe things could work..as for another kid,no thanks. As for them,sorry to say the state will end up paying, to support another kid with a deadbeat dad.The laws need to change and say if you have more then 1 kid with the same guy that isnt supporting his kid then there should be NO financial{medical,etc}help for them to have number #2.

    IDK if they get looked at differently, I guess they could... people may think why wait for him or something. My oldest son's father got left by me when he got locked up to go to prison.... he was not worth the wait. If my SO now got locked up I would wait for him b/c I am truly in love with him and feel he is worth waiting for, he takes care of 2 kids financially that are not his and the dads do no pay support. That is just one of many things, but my point is, if someone wanted to give me less respect for waiting for someone worth waiting for they could go to hell. They don't know me or my situation.

    i say yes b/c people look at us a trashy women who are at the bottom of the food chain. Alot of people think that if you go to jail reguardless of circumstance that you are a peice of shit. It is my experience.

    It all depends. Like for example: the guy who killed his twin girls while they played hide and seek. the wife stayed by his side. WHAT THE H*LL IS SHE THINKING. I would probably be in prison too cause I would have did something terrible to the SOB that murdered my babies. My kids are my world, I would die if something happened to them.

    I think being in locked up for long periods of time(longer than 30days) speaks to you character as a person and staying with someone who has little to no character says something about you.

    He is in for DUI's, should be out in about 1 month, been gone for 12 months. No accidents, He is now at the end of a program for his alcoholism, ect. He seems very serious about staying sober, and starting a new life.

    my husband whom i have been with for 7 years went to prison for the first time when he was 18. he is now 32 and in that time period has spent a total of 7 years in prison because he had to go back 9 differant times. i have stuck by his side for the last 7 years while he went back 4 times while we were together. he has now been out for 2 and 1/2 years and will be of parole in 4 months. he makes $16 an hour and we have full insurance, just bought a house and a new car and we have a 2 yearold daughter. he cleans, he cooks and he loves us like no one else could. all my ffriends are jealous b/c they wnt a man as good as he turned out to be. so if ladies want to look down on us cuz our hubby has been in prison than go right ahead. at least i know i probably get treated better than most and am very financially set and i ahve a GREAT daddy for my daughter.
