Charles Manson is getting married to Afton “Star” Burton, age 26. With over 2 million people incarcerated, it's not surprising that thousands of American men and women have spouses or romantic partners in prison. What is surprising is that some people are getting involved with prisoners who are already behind bars. Men serving time for some of the most notoriously heinous crimes apparently have enough sex appeal to turn death row into a dater’s delight. Prison weddings in California are a regular occurrence. About 20 inmates get married on the first Friday of even-numbered months at San Quentin. Hybristophilia is a sexual perversion in which people are attracted to someone who commits horrible crimes like rape, murder, or armed robbery. This phenomenon is also known as Bonnie and Clyde Syndrome. Some women believe they can change a man as cruel and powerful as a serial killer. Some hope to share in the media spotlight or get a book or movie deal. Mental health experts view such women as insecure females who cannot find love in normal ways or as love-avoidant females who seek romantic relationships that cannot be consummated. We’re not judging, but since Charles Manson is a lifer, he and his new bride won’t have the opportunity for consummation. Ever. Join Life Coach Jenn A Nocera and me for this timely topic.
