Dating a federal prisoner
He even tried selecting friends for me by asking me to carpool with women who were coming to visit their men but it was not a carpool because they never had a vehicle to drive.
My happiness began to quickly fade away as I watched my friends with their boyfriends and became envious of their relationship.
I was not able to showcase my spouse at family events, school functions, or even take birthday and holiday vacations.
I had planned my bridal party and some of my groomsmen, leaving a few slots for whoever my spouse was to be to fill in with his family and friends.
