I don't know about the term"long-suffering."LOL
There are many who are a "success story"but same as relationships when we meet a man or woman outside of the steel prison gate, you have to work hard at the relationship, and the foundation has to be truth/honesty,loyalty communication throughout, same as if we all met in the street someplace, and if meant to be ,at the end of the day, it will be.I have seen success stories over here.I've seen them since i've joined.Not alot.No.But several.
-
Now chica:

If you're wanting to read about Inmate relationships, success stories....Go search/view/take a look in the other forums.

I see a few at least here for a while, featured under "coming home/and or it's Now,that he is home."Good luck to you,adios.
hugs -n- blessings!

Well my LO has only been out for three months but we're still together. Everything we had when he was inside was genuine and carried over to the outside.

There are plenty of obstacles and hurdles, but none of the things I worried about were even an issue. I guess I couldn't have known what to be concerned about when we'd never known each other out in the world. Our love and connection carried over from our prison romance, but our relationship itself kinda hit reset in a lot of ways. I don't care how open and honest and communicative you are - writing, visiting, and talking on the phone are not going to prepare you for what it's like out here. It's just not.

Anyway, I know everyone wants to have hope. We come here looking for success stories so we can have the slightest assurance that we might be one of them. That's totally normal. But at the end of the day, I would say to do your best to live in the moment and enjoy the happiness y'all have now because none of us are promised tomorrow and you're lucky to have love today.

It's a relationship like any other, I think. When you're dating someone and then you move in together, you learn all sorts of new things about them. Some good, some bad. My husband leaves the toilet seat up. I hate that. I drink out of cartons. He hates that. Sometimes I want to sit alone in the dark, he wants to be together all of the time if we are in the same house. It takes some getting used to. We are coming to understand each other's quirks and idiosyncrasies. It's good, though. The love is the same, because it was real while he was locked up, too. We just get to express it differently now. And constantly.

No matter how the relationship started, or WHERE it started, it is a relationship. It takes work, and you will only get out of it what you put into it.

He ha only been out three weeks but so far so good! He has his own studio we do not live together. After ten months of writing before his release we are now dating. He earned my trust by being honest and loyal while he was inside. He always called when he said he would, he wrote when he said he would and we grew closer. I picked him up at the gate and we spent four days together to see how we got along in person. We both are taking this slowly and I believe that is the key. Why not date, or have fun and see if it naturally flows? I see a lot of instant gratification emotionally in mwi relationships and that is not always reality.

You want a success story? I met my husband in 2008 while he was locked up. Honestly I was looking for a tough friend that I could count on if things went sideways with my abusive ex. Long story short we fell for each othere. He got out in 2011 and we moved in together in 2012. We got married in 2013. Everything we had on the inside we had on the outside. People are very judgmental but I didn't care all that mattered was he was my king and I was his queen. Our marriage wasn't always easy but we were in it together-down for each other no matter the obstacles. He was my everything. Now you may ask why is all this in past tense and that is because he died almost 4 months ago and it's been the hardest thing I've ever been through-but I wouldn't trade what we had for the world. He reminded me of what love was and never let me forget my worth until his dying day. RIP My love

I hope not to post about an "ending", but I can say we're nearly six years deep, married three years this month and while he's not released, we're doing well. Do we have struggles? Yes, but a lot of our lumps and bumps are normal relationship issues. Prison has limited us, for sure. But we're both ridiculously real. We haven't set any ooey-gooey future plans, we've been honest about how much this sucks and how first and foremost we are best of friends. I love him and feel loved by him, I hope that the foundation we've built carries us into the future as husband and wife. But if not, it will be a mutual agreement and as the best thing for us both. And, I feel like we'll honor the commitment we've made to remain loving and respectful-- even if as friends.

Thank you ladies....besides one or two naysayers...your posts have been helpful. @ Marks's Wifey..my deepest condolences, I am so happy for you that you two were able share a deep and abiding love. I am sorry for your loss.
I posted this thread back in October, a rough time for me...I/we managed to get through it. I have since learned that I can't look too far down the road to see the end of his incarceration, when I try I get overwhelmed and lost, confused and feeling like I can't do this time with him. What I can do is ONE DAY AT A TIME!! I can do that, and do it well i feel. I can love him, support him, learn him, understand him and be his friend. When I get scared that "this won't work" or "this is just a jailhouse romance" I stop that runaway train in my brain and hand it over to God. When I put my heart in God's hands it calms my fears. Because even if I don't 100% trust my bf YET....I do trust God 100% and that's what keeps me going. My best to all who are kind with their opinions to others on this site. You do many a good service.

We are MWI and I have stopped reading the negative stories on here about MWI break ups because it gets me down. I have 5 friends who were all MWI and their r'ships have all lasted on the streets - one has been 10 years and still going strong. You need to remember there are a lot of MWIs who aren't members on here who have happy successful r'ships.

Heya girls !!

I thought it was time to tell you about our success story, even though I don't like to call it like this

Jaime and I met in March 2016, as penpals. I live in France and he's been incarcerated for 5 years (illegal reentry). He is Mexican and was deported to Mexico.

We met for the very first time after 20 months of correspondance (I didn't get the authorization to visit him) in Mexico this past December. The meeting was awesome, I literally was on a cloud, because of both the meeting itself and the fact that it was abroad.

There was no disappointment at all, he is handsome (more than I could ever have imagined, even after the 50 pictures he sent me throughout the 2 years correspondance!) and we are a good team. He amazes me and we learn from each other a lot.

Of course, there has been hard times, where I could feel that he's been in prison and had a very tough childhood (difficulty to trust, takes all comments as attacks, addicted to screens, difficulty to adapt to "normal" situations...), but we are definitely doing GOOD.

After two months in Mexico, we left for France together, he's been here for about 2 months and is already working as a tattoo artist, we are looking for an apartment, he met my friends and family and is learning French pretty quickly

The good news is that we are getting married next week and he will be able to live in France legally =) =) =)

We are super grateful to wake up next to each other every day, and this is an indescribable feeling for me to have him here in my country, make him discover everything...

A year ago, I was raising money to pay his plane ticket and I was struggling with my family and friend to prove them that he was a "normal" guy...and now we are doing super well and everybody loves him and think he's super cool. I never imagined things could turn out so well !

So yeah, girls, have faith ! Of course, our story is somehow "exotic" because I'm French and he is Mexican, but I want to tell to YOU, who is still waiting for your man, for 1, 2 or more years, that it will be WORTH IT !!! Be brave, MAKE PLANS and get ready for the best !!

I don't know if others would consider it a success, but for us yes and as time unfolds we will see how it goes. After 21 years down and being him with the last 4, it's been great and it's been hard. We have had problems, issues and a time when I was like this is nuts. But 10 days ago I was at the gate and it was so worth it. And to his credit he has stood up like he said he would. We spent the first few days out and having fun, seeing some of his family and taking time for us.

Now he moved to a new state has his first apartment (he went in at 15) started a part time job last week, ( with a little help from me) and started a full time job today he got on his own.

He is the person he told me and showed me he was, I know that he has other parts to him, idk if he left that at the gate, but that's what kept him alive and didn't totally warp his mind.

Who knows what will happen, but this was the goal to be close, and to see what life will bring when we were on equal footing.

We have had problems, issues and a time when I was like this is nuts. But 10 days ago I was at the gate and it was so worth it. And to his credit he has stood up like he said he would. We spent the first few days out and having fun, seeing some of his family and taking time for us.

Now he moved to a new state has his first apartment (he went in at 15) started a part time job last week, ( with a little help from me) and started a full time job today he got on his own.

He is the person he told me and showed me he was, I know that he has other parts to him, idk if he left that at the gate, but that's what kept him alive and didn't totally warp his mind.

Who knows what will happen, but this was the goal to be close, and to see what life will bring when we were on equal footing.
I would consider this a sucess. The fact that he kept true to his word and is working and has his own apartment. Good for you guys! I pray that everything continues to go well!! Be blessed and thanks for sharing your story!

Default MWI and married now 11 years

I met my husband through a penpal situation and waited five years for him to get out.. I lived in Canada and he was in AZ .. I obviously moved down after we married which was approx 4 yrs after us meeting ( so to say) and we have now been together married 11 years but together 15 yrs.. it was not always the easiest path as his release brought him many hurdles that together we dealt with, he had long record so working was hard and he did find a niche for himself by becoming self-employed. we have dealt with his kids, his past etc and it is hard as he can not even travel to my home country so in truth I have not been "home" often. BUT he is a good man and has shown his love to me many times over just by being him. This May we celebrate ten years of him being FREE !!!!! we have some plans made as we want to do it big.. he had when I met him a 10 yr bid to do so this is a very important time as he has remained out of prison for this time and really changed his world and we did it together.. so I wanted to share that there are happy endings.. it is hard but worth it

Mine was just released last week and so far things are good.
