Reality television has a way of capturing the highs and lows of relationships, and “Prison Brides” is no exception. The show, which gained popularity for shedding light on the unique journey of couples navigating the challenges of love behind bars, introduced viewers to Michael and Erin, a duo that faced the trials of a relationship with one partner incarcerated.
As fans eagerly follow their story, the burning question remains: Are Michael and Erin still together?
About Lifetime's “Prison Brides”
Prison Brides' first season was broadcast recently on Lifetime, featuring seven couples, including Erin and Michael. The series follows seven ladies from all around the world as they go to the United States to meet and marry the American federal convicts they have fallen in love with.
The males are all in prison for severe crimes such as carjacking, armed robbery, and second-degree murder. The series will follow the couples as they manage their relationships despite the hurdles piled against them.
Who are Erin and Michael?
Erin is an Australian single mother who moved to Ohio to pursue a relationship with Michael, leaving her small daughter behind. Despite the concern and criticism of her friends and family, she risked everything to be with the man she loved.
Michael was incarcerated for armed robbery and has spent most of his adult life in bars. During the first episode, he buys Erin an engagement ring with the help of her friend and plans to propose the moment he is released from prison.
Are Erin and Michael still together?
It has not been revealed whether Michael and Erin are still together. However, the video implies that Erin had second thoughts about her future with Michael on her wedding day and questioned whether marrying the prison convict was the correct decision.
Michael's harsh behavior could threaten his relationship with Erin, a single mother from Australia, prompting her to abandon him.
Erin left her friends and family to be closer to her boyfriend. However, she has emotional and mental distress after flying to Ohio. Michael has yet to be freed from jail, so Erin will have to manage her own life in a foreign country.
Erin and Michael, the couple from Prison Brides, are seen in the trailer getting thrilled about their wedding. However, Erin seemed to be having second thoughts about whether she should marry or not.
The status of their real-life relationship has yet to be revealed. However, Erin will be left chilly as she departs her country to marry a prison convict.
In the teaser, one of her pals says, “She's moving away from everyone and everything that she's ever known for someone that she's only met once.”
Toward the end of the video, we see Erin zipping her white bridal gown. Erin adds, “I'm getting married,” as she applies cosmetics to her face. However, her voice does not convey the excitement of being married.
She says, “I'm just waiting for something to go wrong.” Does this imply she is not ready to marry Michael? It remains to be seen if Erin will reconsider her decision to marry Michael or not.
