They committed a crime, they served their time – could you be in a relationship with them?
We all have our pasts and many believe it is those pasts – good or bad – that make us who we are.
But is there anything a potential partner could have done in their past that would make you run a mile?
Reggae star Jah Cure (above) says that many people didn’t expect that he would get married due to his controversial past. In 1999, the Jamaican singer was convicted of rape – a charge he has always vehemently denied – and sentenced to 15 years in prison. He served eight years of the sentence and was released in 2007.
Four years later, he married Jamaican TV personality Kamilla McDonald (above) and the couple had a daughter in 2012.
In a recent interview, the Longing For hitmaker said: “I’m sure a lot of people didn’t expect that I would get married, but I did. I know where I’m going and I only want the best – because I’ve seen the worst.
Of his troubled past, he added: “So many people go through struggles and Christ redeems them through love. And love is what I’m all about.”
It got us thinking: How far could your love extend? Could you be with a man/woman who had spent time in prison? Would it depend on the nature of the crime? Or is someone with a prison past a definite no-no for you? Tell us your thoughts.
