Help! I need examples of past or current criminals who turn good after marriage

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm writing about the impacts of marriage, similar to a discussion in which I will talk about the positive and negative of marriage. Right now, to back up my positve stance, I need to find examples of criminals who, after marriage turned for the better. I am kind of lost so if anyone know one, please post here. Help is highly appreciated!!!

How are you going to prove that marriage 'turns criminals good', and can you please define your idea of good? (do you mean giving back to the community, volunteering etc, or they don't commit crimes anymore?)

Yeah I dont get it either. It doesn't seem like a topic that will make you able to come up with a an answer, prove, consider its limitations, evaluate, etc. My own advice is try to refine the topic, but thats just me.

I really doubt that there's any correlation between marriage and criminal nature. Why would there be any? Some of the vilest criminals who ever lived were married; look at Mao, Stalin, Hitler to name just 3 popular ones. But you see my point, right?

I agree with the previous post, if you could reconstruct your research question then that would be better.

On which subject did you want to base your EE on?

Mao, Stalin and Hitler were not criminals: they were on the side of the law. Yes, sure, they were dictators who abused their powers, but they [i]made[/i] the law. Criminals [i]break[/i] the law.

Well I didn't mean that they were criminals like burglars or terrorists, I meant that they are guilty of crimes. But Mao, Stalin and Hitler did in fact take actions for which they had no legal right to which includes a series of murders in the upper ranking classes of their country. In each country, the ''dictators'' didn't have full power in the sense that they were allowed to do everything, but rather their parties had full power and the leader of the party has the most power of the party, but not all power

I just bought this book which might have something to do with what you're saying, but I didn't get the chance to read it yet. It's called "psichokillers" and it's written by Juan Antonio Cebrián. I bought it in Romanian, but it says it's an international bestseller...so you might find it in English as well. Anyway, it's a collection of portraits of some strange murderers in history. Maybe it would help, since it apparently it gives information about their lives as well.

Good luck!
