Thanks Ladies for the updates! It truly is good to know how all of you are doing. It confirms within my soul of the success we'll have when he comes home to me!!!!

How long did he/she serve AFTER you met?
He was in for a year after we met.


Would you consider your relationship successful? How so?
Yeah we got married and it is going really good since he got out.

If you are still together how long have you been together? Describe any strengths or weaknesses you feel may be contributed to the fact that you are/were a MWI couple if you feel that applies.

We have been together for a year and 5 months married for 7 months going on 8.

Default 100% happy and content!!

How long did he/she serve AFTER you met?
17 months

Would you consider your relationship successful? How so?
Absolutely! We are now married and very very happy!!!

If you are still together how long have you been together? Describe any strengths or weaknesses you feel may be contributed to the fact that you are/were a MWI couple if you feel that applies.He is just home in early November. We communicate with each other very well which I think is due to our having to communicate through letters and phone calls and brief visits while he was in. We've learned to be very open with one another and we are always 100% honest with each other about our feelings. Sure, we have our differences of opinion, but we work through it together and most importantly, we made a pact and we NEVER go to bed mad!

I'll confess, I never thought I would fall in love with a convict, EVER...and certainly not while he was still in prison!! However, God surprises us and has plans in store which we do not know until He wants us to. My man and I are soulmates and our relationship is firmly planted in the Lord. That helps so much. We pray together each day which brings a new level of intimacy that I have never shared with any other man. I know that God has great plans for us and I can't wait to see and experience each new day with my honey for the rest of my life.

How long did he/she serve AFTER you met?
He had a year and a half to go.

Would you consider your relationship successful? How so?
Yes I do!! We originally met in 97 and had a relationship for a little less than 3 years and I walked away, it was something I regretted with all my heart we reunited in 08 and we started out as friends slowly rebuilding our love and trust for one another. We finally brought our relationship outside of the gates a few months ago and its been great and we are now married!!

If you are still together how long have you been together? Describe any strengths or weaknesses you feel may be contributed to the fact that you are/were a MWI couple if you feel that applies.
We have officially been together since April 2008 so we are about 4 months shy of 2 years. I would say that our strengths are we definitely are the best of friends, we are very open with one another we talk about everything even if it hurts, we have a great understanding for one another and we also have a great chemistry that has been there since the first time we met in 97. I would say our weaknesses is our difference in backgrounds... although at times this is definitely a strength as well.. we show each other something new...

If you broke up when did this happen and what factors do you feel contributed to ending the relationship? In addition to any specific problems that may have ocurred please share your thoughts as to whether or not you feel that being MWI was a consideration.
Well we did break up in 99 which was all ME!! I so young and easily persuaded to leave him behind.. I never thought anything of him being locked up but everyone else had an opinion on how he was using jail talk etc.. and I listened and I regretted it for years and years. Like I said earlier we reunited in 08 and we are still going strong, happily married!!! Its the best love I have ever experienced and I look forward to growing old with my husband!!!

Thank you for sharing your story Ladies. It is truly inspirational to read the positive outcomes of MWI relationships! I know this may be somewhat one-sided because those situations that did not work are probably dead to PTO but reading about the positive is sooo exciting! I can't wait to see how God molds J and I! 2012 can't come fast enough for us both! : ) Thanks Girls for sharing your stories. Thanks Moderators for such great discussion posts! PTO rocks!

Thank you ladies for these success stories! Even tho Ray and I have been together for 16 years, are doing the paperwork to get married, and love each other very much, there are still times when I have to wonder what it will be like when he is free. These stories are wonderful and I very much appreciate them! Good question Patty!!!

How long did he/she serve AFTER you met?
He served 11 years after we met

Would you consider your relationship successful? How so?Yes, I believe it's a success. We have 2 beautiful children, he came home , got a job, and is succeeding in life.


If you are still together how long have you been together? Describe any strengths or weaknesses you feel may be contributed to the fact that you are/were a MWI couple if you feel that applies.

COMMUNICATION... and being willing to compromise,but not be compromised(haha) We've been together since Oct 31, 1998. We discussed things realistically. We planned together. We visited often as possible, phones, letters..pictures, love and understanding, patience, honesty.. yeah, that's probably very big.. honesty w/ yourself and him..and our son too.

6 years

Would you consider your relationship successful? How so?

I would, and not so much because of the good times, although the good times are great, but how we handle the storms, we do it like friends, we don't try to hurt each other.

If you are still together how long have you been together? Describe any strengths or weaknesses you feel may be contributed to the fact that you are/were a MWI couple if you feel that applies.

We have been together 10 years. I never forget the times I wish he was here with me, anything that happens that one thought will bring me back to center again. Whenever there is a full moon I always say to my husband, we've been granted another one. There were many I looked at alone. Life gets in our way in a way it never did when he was doing time, that was our biggest adjustment.

I would love to fast forward time to be able to live a success story, He has been in since 3/01 and we married on 3/02. We still have long ways to go but i want this to go by really fast hopefully soon. I just want to close my eyes and wake up next to him I have done it more than once in the past 3yrs and It feels great every time... I'm in love with this guy... and will be till the end.

How long did he/she serve AFTER you met?
He'd been in prison 3 years when I met him when I worked at the same facility he was serving in. When our relationship really began though, he'd been down for not quite 4 years. After I met him, he did 13 months.

Would you consider your relationship successful? How so?
Yes. During our time together when he was locked up, we sent hundreds of letters back and forth, and delved deep into each other, always showing absolute honesty. And that honesty has paid off for us now that he's home. While we've struggled this past year with the second year of our time together, getting to know one another on a different level, we can always refocus back to our true beginnings. When you don't know someone on the street, and then they re-enter society, I have come to realize you have to step back and let someone grow individually as well as invest time in your relationship. I admit there are times I really miss the "ME AND HIM" times. And I crave for them. At times I beg for them back. He's finally starting to realize what I mean. Now I have to share him. And I don't like to share. But we are growing, our marriage is strong & most importantly we are still so very IN love.

If you are still together how long have you been together? Describe any strengths or weaknesses you feel may be contributed to the fact that you are/were a MWI couple if you feel that applies.
We have been together since July of '08, been on the street together since Aug '09 and married since December '09. When things feel too hard, or we are at our wits end with the stresses the world brings on, we always ponder on the way we met, how alike we are in so many ways even though we have our differences, and how we've been blessed in many, many ways. I LOVE that I have letters from him when I'm feeling over emotional and girly, and he's being pure dude & I just need those loving words again, and I can go re-read those beautiful letters, smile to myself and then come out and give the big jerk a big hug & kiss--then we try to work through what just happened.

If you broke up when did this happen and what factors do you feel contributed to ending the relationship? In addition to any specific problems that may have ocurred please share your thoughts as to whether or not you feel that being MWI was a consideration.
This does not apply to our relationship.

Oh Ladies,
I love this thread, that´s exactly what I need today.LOL. So many people that come along my way try steady to talk everything bad and are so negative concerning my relationship with F. But I know what we have, I believe in our love though it isn´t easy always with that additional hurdle of the big distance, I hold on to it and wait for the day when he will come home and we can live together the way we want..............and till then I´ll read all this posts from this thread on a bad day and enjoy all the stories here that proove that it can work.
(And maybe I´ll print them all out and dash them to everybody who refuses to believe in my man and me.LOL)

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR STORIES

I been with my bf for 10 months, talking for 1 yr 2 months, and he been locked up for 2 years......I read every story from the beginning....thank you to all the ladies that cared enough to share your story, its such an inspiration to read such positive outcomes compared to the horror stories I have read on here. I have approx 3 months before he gets to the HWH or 11 months until he maxes out and I can't wait but yet can (if that makes sense).

I am so excited after seeing all these successful posts. Our release date is in 19 days, so i will certainly be returning in a few months after he is home to let you ladies know how things went. This gives me the conformation that i felt i was needing for a long time because there is always that little spot of worry that we women have, but now im more ready than ever for my love to come home...

[quote=Patty;3648679]Hi friends I have a favor to ask...

Regardless of how our members met their significant other some do not continue posting good bad or otherwise once the homecoming arrives/is over. This makes it more difficult to get a feel for what may or may not have happened.


In order for us to get a better understanding of why this may occur, please take a moment to participate in the following survey:

How long did he/she serve AFTER you met?
We met when I was 19 and was 21...he served a total of about 22 years. This last one being the longest. 13 years


Would you consider your relationship successful? How so?
Yes, we have a great deal of love and respect for one another. We both married and divorced other people in between but always seem to find our way back to one another.


If you are still together how long have you been together? Describe any strengths or weaknesses you feel may be contributed to the fact that you are/were a MWI couple if you feel that applies.

26 years..on and off...we always remained friends. Truthfully I have unending patience..lol. We have an odd situation in that for 20 years I was PD(5-0). We still deal with issues due to that.

If you broke up when did this happen and what factors do you feel contributed to ending the relationship? In addition to any specific problems that may have ocurred please share your thoughts as to whether or not you feel that being MWI was a consideration.
