That means that the state doesn't just have to permit it, they have to spend tax dollars to help you hook up with your wife.
What if I decide later that I want to get married to a non-prisoner?
If you decide down the road that you want to get married to a non-prisoner, the first thing we would do is offer you a list of counselors in your area who might help you understand what you're giving up.
If you still feel, after understanding the many benefits of having a wife in prison for life, that you want to marry a non-life-sentence-serving person, you will be free to do so.
In order to even qualify for conjugal visits, the inmate must remain in perfect standing for the six-months prior to any visit, so prisoners are extremely unlikely to engage in unacceptable behavior during incarceration, thus lowering overall costs and dangers to the correctional system. You don't have to hire a private detective to know where your spouse is, who they're hanging out with, or ever wonder if you're being cheated on. Beyond that, conjugal visitation is now only permitted in six states.
What's so great about getting married to someone in prison? By marrying a convict you can rest easy knowing that the state is looking out for you, and that you will be free of the nagging, shopping trips and extra-marital oversight so stifling to your relationship. California, Connecticut, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York and Washington are the only places where you can marry an inmate, and then have regular sex with him or her. Sorry, we can only set up conjugal visits between married couples.
There are "inmate dating" sites out there, but those scams are designed so that you meet the inmate while he or she is on the inside, but your relationship can't be consummated until that criminal is released.Then you have all the hassles of dating (the costs, commitment, etc,) plus your left dating an ex-con.Our system is better, safer and far more beneficial. All states within the country have laws prohibiting polygamy, but there is not a national registry that tracks such things.In theory, one could have an incarcerated spouse in all six of the states that permit conjugal visits, as well as one or more additional spouses who are not in the prison system.Such behavior would be highly unethical, moderately illegal, and recommended only to interstate truckers, airline staff, and those who have the ability to fully reap the benefits of such an arrangement.While we can not endorse such behavior, we would not be aware of it unless you told us it was the case, and we'd have to recommend you only select one of our Lifer packages in order to insure that none of them would be released unexpectedly.
