I married my husband the day after he graduated from basic training. The only problem we ran into was I had to wait until he got to his base and added me as a dependant before I could live on post with him. Of course, his first base was in Germany so it may be a little different if he is stationed stateside. Also, you really are not in the military (even if you have already sworn in) until you have completed basic training. The military can not tell you who to marry or who not to marry. However, there is a famous saying in the Army- If the Army wanted you to have a wife they would have issued you one. Good luck.

It would be a very selfish act to purposely impregnate his girlfriend before leaving--not only to the girl but for the child. If he were mature he would wait until he is through all of his training and attached to a regular base--then marry the girl and get to know each other and then bring a child into the whole thing. My son recently told me the Rangers have over an 80% divorce rate on first marriages and even higher on second. It takes a MATURE young woman to love and stay married to a military man especially the groups such as the Rangers. And a young woman who would get pregnant before basic---isn't that mature. She is setting her and her child up for a lot of heart ache.
