Smile How much money do you send your MWI

I haven't seen a thread for just MWI relationships, so I thought I would take a poll as I am curious. How much do you send your MWI significant other a month?

I don't really have a set amount a month but I usually send around $50-$100

He's never asked me for ANYTHING. But I have retained an attorney for him and because he owes restitution, I send double the amount I want him to have because the state takes half. It blows!... But so worth it and he is so appreciative.

Well it took my BF months to allow me to send him money, cause he didn't want me thinking he was playing me. But in the end the phonecalls and all the messages got too expensive so now I pay half of it, which is about $75. He doesn't want me sending any more than that so I send him money as a gift for special occasions, like birthdays, Christmas, 4th of July, Valentine's Day, Easter and everything else I can come up with. He can't say anything, cause we agreed I could send money on special occasions! It gets to be about $150 a month! /M

I don't send money monthly, or even that regularly. I mostly only send money for xmas, his bday, and a few other special occasions.

I send money on a regular basis, as in, a set amount every pay check and then also for holidays. I feel it is only right that if I have what I need he should too, since we are a couple. He will get his chance to even things up in a month, when he gets released...

I don't send my MWI any money. He has sent money to me though. I love him so much he has such a big heart :-) He is all worried about me and my kids when he is the one that should be worried over. I love him to pieces !!

I don't have a set amount - it depends what else is going on in my life and what kind of deals I've been able to get on shoe shopping

Between his family and I, he gets about $100/month. Sometimes it's all me, other times it's not me at all.

I was just about to wretch when I saw the title of this thread... If I see one more "my MWI loves me more because he doesn't ask me for nuthin' thread" I might die! Lol! In my eyes, when you are in relationship with someone, you do what you *can* for them. If you can't fine but it doesn't mean that one relationship is destined more for success. Time and company are as valuable as cash to a man in prison.

$0 and he doesn't ask me for any. I wanna start sending him a little money though. Right now him and I BOTH are struggling but I have more than him and I want him to not have to struggle so much right now.

I never understood how that meant a man loves u more? Mine doesn't make much a month working & not with the hustling so I would be concerned if he wanted nothing b/c all prisoners need something ;-) I don't send much & since we're trying to save for his close release, I'm going to start sending a set amount every 3 months to last. And HONESTLY, had we just remained pen pals, id still be sending $, the purpose of seeking a pen pal was to be a friend and help out when I could. Id rather help someone than to gamble, waste it on drugs or nonsense

LMBO @ "I'm ballin' and I send more." Hahaha...cute.
I wish I was ballin' and could send more...sheesh.

I don't have a set amount. Initially, the first two years he didn't ask for money or packages really....but I told him to ask if he needs something and I'd do what I can. Sometimes I have it to send...sometimes I don't, and he's okay with that. I'd guess I send around $75 a month, and that is mostly for our calls. Sometimes I send extra for hygiene stuff, or I'll send a package once in a while.

I talked to him this past week and said I want to set a budget so I have a set amount I'm sending...that way he knows what to expect and so I keep better track of what I spend. He agreed. Ha, I asked him how much I should budget for him, and he said "it's up to you, you're the boss." LOL

i don't send anything. he won't let me. the only time he lets me spend money on him is when i visit (for the food). i sent him 2 books, but that's about it. he sends me money, actually. it's because he feels bad that he yaps so doggone much on the phone. so i'm getting $50 a month. i am planning on sending it back to him, though. I'm going to do it via his mom (since she sends him money every month), like a secret agent, so he doesn't know.

(oh, and he does work in there, so he's not sending me the money his mom sends him, by the way. )

I would start a savings account for him instead. He doesn't have to know and when he gets out you give it to him.

I don't really send him any money. It used to be $20 when I could, but he got the highest paying job in there so he doesn't need to ask me for anything.

He has never asked me for money, still, I wanted to help him out even a little (at least for stationary, stamps and stuff), so I am sending $20 monthly. I pay for the phone calls as well as he's not able to make international calls in there otherwise. Although I am at university currently (which doesn't make things easier *LOL*), I feel it's absolutely fine to make an effort here especially when you are committed to someone.

For the first year, he was working so I didn't send anything but a few packages here and there. Now that he is taking his FRP classes full time, between his parents and I, we send him $100 a month to cover his bi-monthly commissary.

Oh ok.. Well I clicked that one... Not exactly "ballin" in cash lol but pretty well off.. $190 is easy affordable.
I'm in Aus, things seem to be a little different here than the US!

I hate talking about sending him money because some people act like it's a bad thing but... I send my man $120 a month on a schedule because I can afford it. He's in a supermax and they don't have jobs, plus the whole prison is solitary confinement so he can't gamble or hustle. I want him to be comfortable and he can't be on the $5 a month the state gives him. We're in a relationship and sometimes the scales are unbalanced. I've got his back just like I know he'll have mine one day very soon. Also he pays for our phone time through canteen so the money I send goes for that. Oh and he has NEVER asked me to send him money, I do it because I want to

My friend insisted he only wants company (lol) when I offered to send him a book or subscription. So I took an advantage when I knew the month of his birth was approaching and sent him some funds. In the card I told him it was enclosed, and not to be pissed off about it because I do what I want and if I were gonna starve I would spend it on me. Once I explained the worst thing that 'might' happen was that my son might not be allowed to charge his lunch on my account in the cafeteria at work so often (he charges about $120 monthly) he lightened up a bit. But that's why I sent it straight to the prison without asking first

BTW, my son is 21 and 6ft & 205 lbs so he aint exactly starvin. He eats well at home, lol.
