What Do You Think?



Can love endure the trials of prison?
Do only fools love through bars?
Why or why not?

No rule applies to everyone's situation. I think it depends on what one is imprisoned for. For example, if a person's significant other is imprisoned for being an abusive parent or spouse, there's no reason to hold on to that relationship. On the flip side, if a person's significant other turns themselves in for tax evasion,... you get my point?

I think the real question is, does the person outside the prison cell think a relationship with someone on the inside worth holding on to?

I think those women that meet a man while he's locked up is desperate, however if you had a solid relationship prior to incarceration it can work. It really has to be SOLID tho' to last years of separation. A few months is nothing. When you're waiting years like me it is stressful. The forced celibacy, the limited communication, his mood swings & attitudes, his suspision that you're moving on when you're not, but thinking maybe you should. The extra high phone bill, & long drive across the state. If your relationship isn't already strong, incarceration will break you up. Also I say keep God in your relationship. The couple that prays together, stays together. This goes for all relationships.

Welcome to the Battlefield! I am sorry to hear that you are separated from your loved one. Thank you so much for being transparent and offering great insight to the situation. You never know how knowledge of your situation and battles will bless others reading this.

This is so very true and probably something one should consider before deciding to commit to the wait.

I can see how this would be a tough situation for anyone to endure. Thank you for commenting and if you have decided that it is worth it, hang in there sister and keep your head up.
