Sure. It's called divorce.

Slowly courts are starting to change on who gets what but unfortuantly it also depends what state you are in. Another thing is what is her background? Friend got divorced, she wanted alimony along w/child support. His lawyer made the case she is college educated professional. Shot that out of the saddle.
Also, dont hire the cheap lawyer. It pays to get the best

SSG Bob Teachout - I do not think military spouses were allowed 50% of the retirement in the early 1990's. Plus retire in Texas to be exempt from the alimony.

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....

SSG Jimmy Cernich - The news media. The senior command would have to do something about him.

SSG Jimmy Cernich - IG. Push it to the Brigade Commander if you mean the LTC battalion commander, or to division if you mean the COL brigade commander.

As someone who was in the Chaplain Service for over 20 years I totally agree, Chaplains are trained in marriage counseling and also have the Commanders ear when he needs to make a suggestion. Also remember, they have confidentiality but in today's environment make sure you explicitly ask for it if you want it to stay between the 2 of you.

Unrelated to a spouse committing adultery: I had a Chaplain Lt Col and a Wing JAG Lt Col go to bat for me and helped save my career about 8 years into my USAF service after transitioning from the Army. I had a PAO officer, a jerk of a Major attempt to deny me re-enlistment simply because he and I couldn't get along and he felt that he could give taskings to the Wing Historian. The two officers I mentioned went to the Wing King and convinced him that I was worth allowing to stay.

I met more than few agenda driven JAGs in my day, but this one was a good man, and the Chaplain Lt Col, a Lutheran Church Missouri Synod pastor took the time to understand what had happened, knew the PAO had issues in his own shop with retention and he and the JAG tried to make things right.

They succeeded and I was allowed to re-enlist and eventually made it to retirement. IMHO, military chaplains are even more selfless than those in the civilian world and really do try to do what's best for the individual service member.

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

We had a scumbag at my unit who was humping a deployed airman's wife who surprisingly enough got pissed off when he found her with yet another man. He ended up pulling a dumb when he walked in and got himself kicked out of the Army and she kept humping anything with a bulge in their pants.

Military does have some privilege's from a spouse that can be revoked. With General's wife there are obligations especially overseas.
