how to get married while fiance is in south korea?

my boyfriend and i recently got engaged right before he left for korea, he is on a one year tour. He is at camp humphreys-garrison and We hate the distance and want to be there together and he says he likes it there and would extend his tour 3 years so we can be married and live there. Its real expensive for him to come home and he said it was possible to get married legally without him being here and just doing alot of signing on the line. is it possible? and how would i go about getting command sponshorship after the fact and how long does it take?

  • Do you live near a military post? A chaplain may be able to help.

  • You would not be able to get on base because you are not military and not a dependant so you can go to the courthouse and talk to them and they will tell you how to go about getting married. He will need a copy of the marrage license so that he can do all the paperwork to get you over there with him. It can be a long process (a few months) But there is nothing that you would be able to do to speed up the process. They could also tell him that you can not come over there and make that year his "hardship year" where there is no family. He would need to talk to his company after the marrage about all of it and they will tell him everything that he needs to do to get you there as soon as possiable. Good luck!!
