I said "YES" when he said we should get married again. We are not a young couple, so we don't know if we'll still be alive in 21 more years. I don't have anyone knocking my door down wanting to date me, so why not? We were married at Wallens Ridge State Prison in Big Stone Gap, VA on 9/18/18. We both love our wedding date!

Getting married didn't change much, but I do worry about when he gets out, if we're still both alive. He's 55 and I'm 67, so add 21 to those numbers, and you'll see why I don't believe we'll make it to living together again, even though we're both in good health.

I've hung with him for nearly 7 years now. I don't see any reason for that to change.

Wow, reading this has really made me appreciate my situation a little more...i really applaud you for being so hopeful, keep your head up wish you guys the best
