    Yeah, worrying isn't going to do you any good. I think you could spend your energy planning things to do together when he gets out.

    Make him a home cooked meal since prison food tastes like slop. Let him transition into home life. Make home life comfortable and give him time.

    How long was he away for? He may have be come institutionalized, depending on how long. Keep in mind they do not test for STDs routinely in prison and man-on-man sex is quite common in incarcerated strait men. Use condoms and get tested. Do not try to make it some sort of romance novel reunion.

    He may need a lot of follow up not only from mandatory parole monitoring but also psychologically. Depending on what he was in for he may return to whatever got him there. That is extremely common. Does he have a job placement counselor? Who will pay the bills and support and him now that the government isn't?

    Most leaving prison want a cheese burger when they get out. They won't be able to sleep well for awhile, and will have some stress over adjusting to be able to do and go wherever they want. Maybe get him some counseling, possible PTSD issues may arise.

    How do you know? I thought they would prefer pizza.

    Take it one day at a time. Don't plan too much. Maybe stock the fridge with his favorite foods and drinks, but give him time to adjust. Let him know you are there for him, but don't be annoying.
