How best to survive through your partners incarceration as a woman

Maintain an interest in your spouse and family. Let them know not only that you miss them, but that you care for them. Pray for them every day.
If your spouse is incarcerated, write your spouse letters. Visit your spouse in prison if you can. Be open with your children about where your spouse is and why, but also on why you haven't given up on them yet.
If your spouse is waiting for you on the outside, write letters. Make phone calls. If you have a job, send money or buy gifts.

How to Maintain a Marriage During IncarcerationMOVE FORWARD, NOT BACK 

I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.”
(Philippians 4:13, NIV)
Does your spouse have a substance abuse or alcohol problem? Do you?
You need to have a healthy relationship. If you have been clean during this time apart, don’t allow your home to become a place where drugs and alcohol are readily available.
The very best thing you can do for your spouse and your family is to keep away from overwhelming temptation and let them see you living a new life. If you've struggled with addiction in the past, your recovery has to come first. It will be hard, but if you are Christian, you can know that in Christ all things are possible. Let things come together in God's time.
Seek out counselors who can help you and your spouse become better partners and better parents.
