Seeking to marry an inmate in Mass - how does this look for a draft?
I'll be applying for marriage to an inmate soon; how does this look for the letter explaining why we wish to marry while incarcerated?
"I wish to marry the love of my life, [partner's name], an inmate at [location], because I do love him. As not only transgender people, but people with Asperger's syndrome, for people like us to find others who would accept us is rare; to find others who love us enough to wish to spend the rest of our lives with us, extremely rare; and to have the opportunity to make it so, almost impossible; yet despite the odds, we are in love, and we intend to marry, build our lives together, and live those lives that we build together. The fact that the marriage will be in prison is no problem for us; what matters is not where we marry, but that we marry. We are in love."
I did not know that you had to write a letter like this asking for permission! I'm sorry I can't give you any advice on this subject! Have you tried looking for examples online? Have you posted your letter?
