Unhappy Married felons not able to be together?

My husband and I live in Missouri. He is in prison for probation violations. While he was out, we were both in college trying to get our lives together, he bought a welder from a man whom he did not know, got a reciept, only to find out it was stolen. We were both charged with recieving stolen property, because I was with him, although I did not talk to the man. I pled out on an Alford plea SIS after a year, paid resititution that day, $2840, and am on 5 years probabtion. On my probation papers it now says according to my probation officer, that we can't be together unless the judge in that county says we can. Is this legal? We are married and was before this case. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks ahead of time.

Yeah, it's legal, because probation/parole can easily forbid two felons involved in the same crime from spending time around each other. If it were two men or two women it would be simpler to understand, obviously. But they don't see that the marriage helped either of you to avoid the 'crime'. In fact, they may see it as encouraging another crime if the two of you get to spend time together.

You will have to go back to whoever they tell you to to straighten this out.

Yes, it is legal and is a standard condition of probation to prohibit the fraternization of felons with each other regardless of their prior relationship. My husband is a convicted felon and we had to get a waiver from the judge for my minor son to come home to live as a convicted felon. That being said, as long as there's no domestic violence issues involved the judge will most than likely grant a waiver to allow you and your husband to reside together.
