Default We're getting Married <3! Need your advice & experiences!

Hello all! So A and I are getting married and I could not be any more excited ! I can't wait until the day comes! I am nervous and happy at the same time and I know in my heart this love is for the long run.

I guess I wanted to not only share my news with you all but also ask your advice. I just don't know what to expect. If any if you were married while your significant other was still inside I would love to hear about your stories and your experiences with the process to getting married, the actual ceremony, and if things changed in your relationship after wards.

Sending hugs to you all!

My LO and I got married while he was inside. We had a lady from the courthouse come and do our ceremony. We agreed with her to do the short ceremony so that we could spend our time with each other and not with her. I was able to take in a disposable camera, still in the packaging, and one of the COs took pictures for us. We got to have a contact visit for about an hour after the ceremony. We normally have to visit behind glass. We got to hold hands during the ceremony. That was nice.

As for our relationship, it really hasn't changed other than I think we feel more secure in our standing with each other. My LO was locked up six years before we got married. I believe he feels much more secure that I'm not going to leave him.

Does that answer some of your questions? I hope it did!

It would probably be a good idea to have your loved one ask prison officials what is allowed for the wedding ceremony.


For us, we had to set up an appointment with the chaplain for counseling before the marriage. I had to get the marriage license before the ceremony. Dress code was the same. I just wore a nice pants suit. We were allowed to have x amount of guests. We were allowed to have a cake, and an inmate photographer took photos.


All facilities are not the same, so have your loved one get information.

Thank you ladies all super helpful. We are waiting on my visits to be cleared again as his non family visits were taken away for some time so once that goes through, again, we will start this process. He did mention I will need to talk to the chaplain over the phone at first and he will ask me if I know what the crime he was accused of is and if I'm aware of the length of his sentence, things like that. Hope all goes smoothly for us!

Please forgive me for writing this, I don't intend my no means to rain on your parade but I've read your other two threads you've posted within the last 3/4 year and you seriously want to get married to the man who has mental problems, cut's you off one day and comes back the next, who told you he has "nothing to offer you"?
I really try to be happy for you but I'm seriously more concerned than happy.
Can't you wait until he's out? What's the need and reason to be married now?

Yes actually I do want to get married to him. Nobody is perfect, myself included. Everyone goes through things and I won't hold that against him. He did what he needed to do at that time to protect himself. Like I read recently in a thread on this website, he was just "trying to survive". Like so many others in his situation. There are things that happen in a relationship that make you stronger, that are meant to make or break you and that was one of them. Thank for your concern tho, were good
