In Sickness, In Health—and In Prison

"Niccole Wetherell and Paul Gillpatrick were engaged in 2012. The state of Nebraska has prevented their wedding ever since.Wetherell is serving a life sentence for first-degree murder, housed in a prison about 50 miles away from her fiance, Gillpatrick, who is serving a 55-to-90-year sentence for second-degree murder.

The pair, who met in 1998 prior to their incarceration, have come to accept they cannot marry in person. Instead, they want to wed via video conference, and they want an end to a prison policy that forbids Nebraska inmates from marrying each other except in “special circumstances.” Wetherell and Gillpatrick argue they have a “fundamental right to marry.”"

Yes....this has been a long standing problem in many places and it's sad. None the less, they are a married couple and what we can't do in person, we can do in spirit. Love is the greatest force on earth and it is a power unto itself that can walk through walls, defy the superstitions of mankind and cure a multitude of sickness.
