Default Marriage in Federal Prison

My fiance and i have been together for 6 years prior to him self surrendering 2 weeks ago. We had been plannong a wedding for when he was released before he even went. But we would really like to get married while he is still in there and the have our big wedding (my dream wedding) when he gets out. I llove him and the family we have and i know FOR SURE that he is the man i want to spend the rest of my life with. Does anyone have any informationon what we need to do to get married while he is in federal prison. Thank you!!!!

The process for every federal prison is different. My hub is in a fed prison where the warden does not allow weddings/marriage . I would recommend to check the federal forum to where he's at and see if you find any info there or have him ask his counselor and he/she will tell him the process . Congrats!

Some states allow and some don't. It took me forever to finally get it done, and that consisted of him being transferred to my state to get it done, going thru group marriage counseling classes with chaplin for 6 months. And alot of stress and running around. It's not easy, but is a chance. Start with talking to Chaplin first and go from there. Good luck!

His chaplain wanted nothing to do with marriages and he had to go through the counselor the first counselor never got our paper work done but after he left his new counselor was on the ball and got it accomplished.Only trouble was only 2 times a year the prison held the weddings the whole whole process took 11 months.
