Honeymoon in 2036

Two Texas prisoners, Diane Zamora, and Steven Mora, who had never met, were married by proxy and could look forward to their honeymoon - in 2036 at the earliest. Their prisons were 208 km. apart.

They began writing letters to each other after Mora saw Zamora on TV. Zamora was a former U.S. Naval Academy midshipman who, along with then-boyfriend David Graham was sentenced to life in prison in a 1996 trial for the murder of a 16-year-old girl who was her romantic rival.

She had to serve at least 40 years in prison and would not be eligible for parole until 2036. Mora was scheduled to get out of prison after a four-year sentence for threatening retaliation against someone who helped put him in prison on an earlier charge.

It seems however that the wait was too long, as they have divorced in the meantime.
