Officer marrying a soldier

#1
I already posted this but i think i put it in the wrong place.
My question is can a Officer marry a Soldier?

No. Against Queens Regs.
Outrageously, it only applies to marriage, if they were up hill gardeners or bean flickers then they could get a civil partnership.

You can if you are an ordained priest (or Rabbi, depending on religion). Getting married to a soldier, however, is a no no.

As it should be if you expect even minimal good order and discipline. One must remember that there are the occasional "overnight courtships" with an early morning "wedding," between some 19 y/o Marine and a wily indigenous woman in some 3rd world nation.

However, most marriages occur after some period of courtship, that usually in our ever so sophisticated post modern world includes all manner of sexual activity beyond the chaste kiss and held hand of simpler times. Thus there is much more to consider than a enrapt couple suddenly appearing as man and wife or some other "nontraditional" combination. All this means profound issues as to fraternization and the usuAl negAtive effect it has on the nature of the officer--enlisted military relationship from the perspective of good order and discipline.

There was such an occurrence in the Wildenrath area in the early '70s - a young and gallant (yup!) Lt fell in love with a young (and very, very nice!) L/Cpl in the WRAC. They were both hounded out of their respective services. I really hope that things would have changed by now.

This is purely anecdotal but I knew a guy who was seeing an officer. They weren't in the same chain of command but apparently there was some unpleasantness and she resigned her commission soon after which they got married.

There is only really a problem if you make a problem. Obviously any relationships in the same unit are a complete no no, however as long as you dont work together, there shouldnt be an issue. e.g male officer in a relationship with female full screw from another unit 50 miles away. As long as she turns up to his mess dos in a dress and doesnt give it big time about being a cpl, and he goes to her dos in a suit and keeps his OJAR opinions to himself, whats the drama?

I know a female officer who is married to a sgt. they were married when they were both full screws and then she commissioned. Again, there are never any problems because no-one makes a problem.

It's not against Regs, that would be illegal (human rights an' all that). It can be awkward and isn't recommended in the same chain of command, so one of you could expect a quick posting, hopefully somewhere nearby. I seem to recall it would be a 'no-no' between an instructor and a soldier under training.

That has to be a ******* one off, any verry very nice WRACs in the 70s would have been in fearsome Unit demand.

Oh, they were, they were - compared with what I saw in other barracks, we seemed to have the cream.
