Kojak333 3 | 12 16 Oct 2009 #1How common is it for husbands in Poland to open mail that is addressed to their wife ?A friend in Poland, told me that this is fairly common in Poland.I plan to send a letter to someone in Poland. The subject matter is very personal.I wonder if I send my letter and pictures in a U.S. Priority Mail cardboard box or a FedEx box, if a husband might be a little less inclinced to open a package ?The person I'm sending the package to, is a relative who I haven't been in contact with, in 33 years. My mother. We have been separated, since I was 17 months old. I don't even know if my mother know's I've been living in the United States, all these years.Also, does anyone know if the postal service in Poland delivers registered mail ? Obviously, I can't send a registered letter from the United States to Poland. But if Poland does deliver registered mail, I could send my letter (or package) to a friend in Poland. Then they could mail it to my relative - as registered mail.If my mother could go to the post office and personally sign for the letter or package, that would be great. Her husband not being able to sign for it himself either, would be ideal.I also have the address where my mother (in Poland) lives and the name of the health care organization or hospital where she works (in Warsaw). I could have someone deliver my letter (or package) to her house (in Legionowo) or hand-deliver it to her, where she works, but she might find that a bit intrusive and perhaps an invasion of her privacy.Any thoughts or commentary would be appreciated.I'm at the end of a long 13 year search to locate my mother in Poland. I just want to ensure she gets the letter (or small package). I'd hate for the husband to open my letter (or package), not tell her about it and keep it a secret.
