I saw this show on t.v. about women who connect with men in prison by websites. This one chick met a prisoner online and they got married in the prison. He is in for life without the possibility for parole. The chick was is her young twenties and good looking. I dont understand what she is thinking. She can’t even see him face to face just through glass once a month.

Generally, prisoners are not allowed access to the Internet. It’s too hard for the officials to snoop and censor the incoming and outgoing messages.
