Hello, Kitty: I was with a girl for a very long time before my five years in prison, and we've stayed together. She loves me very much and has vowed she will stand by me until I come home, but a few days ago she told me she wasn't happy and that she was fed up with the situation. She wants to call it quits, but she is the only woman I have ever been in love with, and the thought of losing her is killing me softly. I respect her for being very open and honest with me, and I want her to be happy, but I can't let go of her. She says that if I love her, then I'll let her go. I have only 26 more months to do. Do you think it's right for me to fight for her? Or is it my duty to respect her and let go? She's said that when I get out, we can start all over again -- that is, if I've left the fast-money life and she's single. Still, I'm depressed and I don't want to lose her. What is the right thing to do?

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
