Smile Needed Information on marrying an inmate in Oklahoma!

I am wondering if anyone has any information about marrying an Oklahoma inmate. He asked me a year ago and I said yes. Told him I wanted to wait til he came home. I've changed my mind. The why isn't real relevant.

But does anyone know if OK has removed the moratorium on inmate marriages? I am finding conflicting information. If so do I contact the chaplain at his prison to get things started? Any information is welcome Thank You

Not sure what "moratorium" you are talking about. The above policy is effective as of December 22, 2016. Do you know of or really think there was a stop placed over the holidays? That was less than 30 days ago.

They had stopped all marriages of inmates in 2015 in an attempt to stop gay/same sex marriages. I haven't seen that reversed. Sorry can't post link.

Okay....so that was 2015. The policy above is from December 2016 which is obviously more recent than 2015 so is the rule.

Get it? New rule, no hold on old rule.

The article mentioning the moratorium on prison marriages in Oklahoma pending the same sex marriage ruling was from May 2015. Obergefell v. Hodges which is the Supreme Court case legalizing same sex marriage was rendered June 2015.

So, see, it's fine now. No more issues.

Just my nervous jitters. If he had it his way this would have happened 1.5 years ago. His family is even excited. Me happy, but this is another step in a very long best friendship.
