While the couple received their California marriage license on Nov. 7, they have not set a date — but have until February before it expires. However, Melissa revealed to the site that she will not be in attendance.
“It’s going to happen,” she revealed. “She [Afton] doesn’t know when. It’s up to the prison to give the date.” The wedding announcement was definitely not news to Melissa however, she revealed that her daughter revealed that she wanted to marry Charles last year.
While it was not a surprise, she is concerned. “She doesn’t live close to us,” she told the site. “We can’t be there for her.” Afton’s love for Charles comes from his work with the environment, which she is also a part of.
Melissa does understand that their engagement is unusual. “It’s a different situation,” she said. “But my daughter is smart. She plans out what she wants to do.” she revealed.”She’s come to love him.”
After they say their “I do’s” and kiss, they will not be allowed to have physical contact, however, Charles will not be restrained during the ceremony.
The site also reports that they are allowed to invite up to ten guests to their wedding who are not inmates at the prison and Afton is allowed to wear a gown while Charles will remain in prison attire throughout the ceremony.
