It's easy to see marrying a convict as a story of Bad Relationship Decisions, but that's not how your story would be. Do you regret it, but being married to an ex-convict as hard and painful?

Being a prisoner's wife requires mighty resistance — to the mind-numbing, bureaucratic prison system itself, but even more, to those who so casually dismiss us as less than, those who see us not as people who deserve support and respect but who deserve contempt.
