Question for those who know about the military's divorce "policies"

A man in the military has legal seperation papers, but the divorce IS NOT FINAL. He gets involved with a woman, that is not his wife, and the woman gets pregnant by him. Are there consequences for the man? If so, what?

  • It must depend on what branch your in. When I filed for separation from my husband the JAG lawyer told me once the separation is legal my husband is free to sleep with who ever he wants ad even move in with a woman if he chooses.

  • Yeah it is still considered adultry until the divorce is final. But some units dont really care unless it is drawn to their attention.
