SPC(P) Chandler Lonergan - Barbie never comes with anything that has to do with Ken. Even Divorce Barbie. She always comes with G.I. Joe. She only fakes it with Ken.

Divorce is actually the icing on the cake for her. She gets everything plus half of you retirement. Cheaper to keep her!

SFC Joey Garcia - I believe a spouse is not entitled to a 50% of a service member's retirement pay if they are married less than 10 years. If the service member fells cheating is a big deal, he/she should just file for a divorce and move on with life.

MCPO Gabriel Gador - Speaking from experience, my ex-wife got a portion of my retirement based on how much of the time I served and the time I was married. She is not entitled to any portion of the survivors benefit my current wife will receive. I do know each state has there own rules so I would not totally depend my experience. I don't know if the legal affairs office on base can help with that as my divorce was after I retired. But do seek legal advice, it's better in the long run.

I'm not trying to be facile here, please understand that...I'd honestly go the chaplains on the installation, and ask for their help to deal with it...first, because that sort of thing is one of their principal functions...second, because I've observed that clerics, generally, often are quite accustomed to dealing with such problems resembling social work...and third, because clerics, also, quite often, seemingly have a rather unusual facility of being able to get attention and/or open doors to fix problems, esp. if they go higher, to their own superiors, if encountering problems along the way...as I'd said, those thoughts were obv not intended to be either facile, or simplistic, certainly, merely observations I'd thought might possibly be useful, if nothing else, honest....

That's I because most of the chaplains have marriage and family counseling degrees. You can actually receive a commission as a chaplain WITHOUT a divinity degree, if you can get a church, faith, sponsor you, if you have the Marriage and Family counseling degree. s any faiths do nto have professional divinity programs (the LDS church for example).

That's a good question.What if a soldier is married to another and pleasing the Colonel.Who do you tell then? Nobody wants to mess the Colonel just saying.Being deployed and you find out your spouse is living it up wit the colonel back home.Wbo do you tell?

No. The military has no legal authority over spouses. Thank you for your service.

No but dependents can get removed from the installation for conduct that make disturbances on the installation.

MSG Bryan Brown - I have seen a couple of civilian spouse returned stateside based on behavior issues, in one case the host nation demanded that the spouse be returned stateside. I have also had the unenviable task of insuring that said spouse arrived stateside (escorting said spouse), which is not a task I relished. I have also had to escort Dependent Children back to the states and surrender them to Children Services. There is no shortage of issues that can result in such an action. Last time was 1980.

Actually the Post Commander can bar a wife/spouse from coming on post if they pose a problem to the command. Or used to be able to.

Check with the command or duty station you'er at for details. Truth is if you have to check then the problem is already there. Better nip in the bud now before they problem come is you.
