LOCKED UP LOVE: RELATIONSHIPS WITH MEN BEHIND BARS

Man Behind Bars

In recent events, former Detroit Mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick was found guilty on numerous charges. Mr. Kilpatrick will now spend years behind bars, leaving behind his wife and children. The sting of this life changing event, after feeling bad for his children, made me focus on his marriage.

Although he hasn’t been sentenced, it’s safe to say he and his wife’s marriage has been dealt its sentence. I guess you never know what you would do in situations like this unless you’ve walked a mile in their shoes. I started to wonder if she would wait on her husband to serve out his jail sentence and return home?

There’s so much a woman has to deal with in a relationship when she’s involved with a man behind bars. Carlita Kilpatrick will now have to raise their three boys alone. I can’t begin to imagine the stress this will have on their marriage, or lack there of, since Mr. Kilpatrick won’t be around.

Many women have reasons why they either date or marry a man serving a prison sentence. I’ve read some stories where women weren’t married until after their husband received his sentence.

The changes women go through can sometimes prove to be too much on the relationship. The sentence being handed down is not just for the man in the relationship, but for the women as well. Some women have said they’ve had to relocate every time their mate relocates and have even gone broke from having to pay an absurd amount of money for telephone calls. Not to mention, the lonely nights.

I’m sure from the guys perspective, insecurities will set in.  He may start to believe the woman is seeing someone else which can result in anger and frustration, putting even more strain on the relationship.

“For better or for worse”, is the line in wedding vows that sticks out most. Carlita is definitely seeing her marriage at it’s worst.  I guess the silver lining would be if her marriage could survive this, it could survive just about anything.

We are not to judge, however, we can question. Is it worth it to stay with a man serving time behind bars?
