Dear Abby: I have never been in love before and I have just learned the man I’m seeing is a former felon. It was nothing having to do with sexual violence or killing anyone. I’m afraid if my family finds out, they will judge him. He works seven days a week and lives in a shelter because most places don’t want to rent to felons. He treats me good and takes me out for dinners.
Maybe I’m stupid for not being judgmental, but he’s a good person who has served his time for his crimes and he’s still being punished. Are people like him not allowed to be in love and have families, too? — In Love In Nebraska
