Default Benefits of being married in ny?

My baby will be going to prison (I assume in ny since we live here) in early January. He is out on bail right now and I'm trying to convince him that we should get married before he goes in! I believe he wants to but is scared and his parents think its a stupid idea. Married couples get conjugal visits right? What are the benefits of being married in the nydoc system? Help me convince my man!

it depends on where he serves his time. If he gets more than a year, he will go to NYS prison. SOME, not all, have Family Reunion Programs--which allow 2 day visits in a small apartment type setting away from the main part of the prison--still on prison grounds. Read more here:


He can apply IF he is in a facility that offers it--not all do. AND you have been married at least 6 months AND after he is in 6 months.

Whether that is a good reason to get married, you will have to answer yourselves. Most prisons allow marriages to be performed--although it is a bit of a process.
