There are really times that one cannot really avoid the issue to be honest.

My friends knew I was dating a guy and they met him. When he got arrested, I could have not shared / confided my emotions in them but, the question would arise, „ where is your boyfriend?”

Then, when further charges were added, it hit some media. If I were to go forward with this man, people would know anyway.

He bought me a sizeable engagement ring. People knew I had a boyfriend. They could not ask, „ who gave you that? The man in the moon?” People are quite capable of putting 2 and 2 together. It is true that I didn’t have to wear it but then I would be denying myself a part of that tradition.

To sum it up, as others have said, I am ashamed of the prison situation, but I am not ashamed of the man.

I work in professional environments where the women have decent spouses. Men that were capable of being good boys, playing by the rules and not finding themselves in a cell. [At least right now. No one knows the future but odds are in their favor.] So, I don’t talk much of my husband to them, cause flashing alarms go off in their heads with any mention of crime / prison. I avoid lunch room / break room conversations about week ends, holidays, vacations . . .

My boss knows cause I asked if it would matter in my clearance to work. She gave me the line of, „ what are you doing w a man like that?! You are such a nice girl.” While she knows of him, I am very hesitant to speak of him. Best to keep that work / personal divide.

I have found that people who do know of him / situation keep their distance from me. That is fine and well within their rights. However, they should not be scared of me by proxy of him.
