Default 2012 Marriage Questions

Hi Ladies,

I'm just wondering if anyone has gotten married while their loved one is in PB SHU? Is that possible? (I'm sure it is, but what does it take?)

I've heard you can't even hold hands for a wedding while he's in the SHU - is that true?

Any info will be welcomed.

Many thanks,
Valerie

I believe you have him request a marriage packet.
You can not have contact with a shu inmate even to kiss or exchange rings.
Bummer I know :-(
Still,you can get married.
Congratuations!

There are many restrictions. For instance, the couple do not hear each other take their vows. The minister is the one holding the phone, zero contact. The visit time is not extended. Only two additional visitors are allowed. It's still a special day though. You can message me if you have questions.

Hey Distant,

I JUST got the marriage packet from my man...but shoot, it's at home and I'm at work ..... I know he needed $10 on his books to pay for the Notary, then it was something like $60 for something and $75 for something else. Of course you'll have to pay for his ring, which can't be more than $100 (don't know how I'm gonna find a ring that cheap but OK...)

You know what' I'll bring the papers in to work tomorrow and scan them so you can see it all, OK?

I got my mans ring at Helzburg for $80. Its only stainless steel but we will get another one when he comes home. Good luck and congratulations to both of you

Default Phone # for PB Chaplin

Hello Ladies,

Does anyone have a phone number for the PB Chaplin? I know there's a phone list on this site but it's pretty old.

Default PB Marriage Co-ordinator's phone #

All,

FYI - here's what I found out, Pelican Bay x 9013 Call Thur - Sunday (weird I know but OK). Really nice and helpful guy by the name of Robert Lasaku or something like that. He's the marriage facilitator.

RE: Marriage in Pelican Bay SHU

Has any had the run-around with the last and final so called "Green form"? My mand and I have all the papers submitted notarized in order. I've spoken to the Marriage Facilitor numerous times since end of Aug - all we need now is my man to receive the "green form" from the facilitator and we'll be set to get married.

The Marriage Facilitator has told me he's sent it out 3 times but hasn't got it back yet - my man says he's never received it. I feel that someone is not delivering this form to my man in SHU - who do I go to now? Ladies, any ideas???

Well thank you!!! I'm so pleased to hear our "love-vibe" was reaching out to everyone!!!! Which lady were you? I'm sorry, I was side-tracked
;-) Pse PM me if you'd like.

I actually think they did a good job up there, given where we were at. The Register Lady said the vows to me, then I spoke them to Javier and he spoke them back to me, so we could hear each other on the phone (if you see what I mean).

Hopefully I wasn't too loud??? I was just SOOOO EXCITED when we were pronounced "Man and Wife" that I totally forgot that glass was there!!! LOL!!! I went to kiss him and banged my forehead on the glass - what an idiot!! LOL!!!

We are both so happy, still smiling ear-to-ear...
