Thumbs up Wives & Girlfriends Resource Center

Hello gentlemen. I thought you might enjoy a resource thread in your forum.
You are all doing the hardest thing for anyone in our situation...faithfully supporting your loved one who is incarcerated.
I am posting a few links that I believe you and your wives/girlfriends/significant others' could benefit from.
We all know how difficult it can be to keep things fresh and progressive in a relationship...any relationship...but even more so for us in this situation.
There are some ideas here that you could use to spice up your letters and phone calls, as well as constructively work on keeping your love growing and moving forward together.

Goldenglove,

Thank you so much for doing this for us. I would like it very much if you would do us the honor of becoming our moderator. TXRhino seems to be gone and I can't say I blame him. When my wife comes home you'll probably won't see me on here again.

heck, we'll even make you an honorary husband!

Default Absolutely, except for the

occasional thunderbolt which hit my &^%$, I have thoroughly enjoyed your kind and wise words while participating in this forum.

While I regret Tx Rhino's absence, I am delighted to see you take up the banner of our humble little forum.

That being said, I did a diligent search amongst the "sweet things to keep a marriage HOT", and I failed to see any reference to:

"Darlin', I got you a new bowling ball", or

"Sweetie, that circular saw I got you for Valentine's Day makes you look great in those jeans".

I am sure it was purely an oversight on your first day.

Oh oh,

I better go now, .. very quickly.

Default oh no, lets look

on the bright side of being an honorary "husband" in waiting.

You, Senor GG will be one of the smartest members of this forum.

You will be able to explain why our wifes/SOs:

1). don't appreciate being told they look "nice" in horizontal stripes, but

2). Do appreciate us when we just sit there in visitation and listen to them and then offer no immediate solutions.

??

Welcome to the locker room!!

I would like to point out that the links in the first post of the resource thread were created and arranged originally be e_wife03 with much effort.
They can also be found in the H&B resource thread.
She deserves full credit for all her effort in providing these wonderful links to valuable resources.

~~~Thank you, e_wife 03! ~~~

Default Female Offenders

As a CO and also having a loving relationship with a female offender I prefer to put a lot of emphasis of the social and psychological needs of offenders both genders. I thought some of these links might be usefull to guys who have a relationship with a female offender:

http://www.nicic.org/Features/Library/?Tag=189&Group=9
this is from the National Institute of Corrections, an excellent site to visit to reearch most corrections and offender management relatated issues.

http://www.centerforgenderandjustice.org/articles1.asp
Dr. Stephanie Covington's site. She is well--known for her knowledge of the unique issues presented by female offenders.

Default Wife Troubles Please Help

Hi my wife of 17 years just moved to a halfway house close to our home for six months. She has been in FBOP for almost 2.5 years and I was only able to see her 4 times in that time. We have two children which I have raised alone since she has gone. We saw her last Friday and she was very cold to me, and would not even give me a kiss or let me hold her hand. She said she is not used to being touched. I have sent her money and gone without to make shure she was able to get what she needed in prison. I went blind in January of this year and am still waiting for SSI to come through. I worry because she has started smoking again, the prison did not allow that, and I did hear her say to my kids that her nick name in prison was Slick. I don't know what to do I just want the woman I married in 1992 back. I love her with all my heart and soul and would do anything for her, but I need to feel loved also, and do not wish to feel like a sucker, or a fool like I did when she broke the law and went to prison. I have no friends or family I can talk to, because all they say is leave her. I will never do this my vows I took on our wedding day say it all. Do most woman that get out of prison feel like they don't want to be touched or act cold to their husbands or boyfriends? Please Help.

I am sorry to hear your situation: Most of the time if we listen to what people say, they tell us the answers we need to hear but refuse to listen too because it is not what we want to hear. For example: You stated that you wanted the women back that you married in 1992, however when you just visited with her she was cold *clue 1* then she tells the children she was known as slick *clue 2* & she says she is not used to being touched *clue 3* but the thing is werent you all touching before she was on lock down? I dont mean to be harsh but Yes, u deserve LOVE and RESPECT! Best of LUCK!

Red face What I try to do

I write her every day. I never want her to think that I would abandon her, especially when really has no one else. She like so many like her made some bad mistakes involving some of the relationships that she had. I do not beat her up over what has happened. I focus on what it will be like when she is released. I write a 3 page letter abd I and a extra page of a song for us. Maybe I am a little to romantic but it helps me, because when I send her the song she knows that I am thinking of her.
Don

Default Just a little while longer

I write my girl at least 3 to 5 times a week and go visit once or twice a month. It's only 5 months now until she should make parole (fingers crossed) and then she will be able to come home.

Default Don't let her forget

We were best friends when she was in the free world and still are even though she is lock down, she is so worried about losing that and I remind her that nothing has changed, I send her letters and money just to show that actions are behind the words and after 914 days I'll still be her best friend
