Who here got married for the Tricare, BAH, and free travel? 


DH and I have a long standing joke that I married him for the dental insurance. I'm former AD and my medical was good through the VA, I know a rare non-complaint about VA care, but I wasn't covered for dental. So I found a service member and married him to get dental! 😜

i married him because i loved him, the "benefits" are an added bonus. but honestly i probably wouldnt have married him if he didnt have those things. i spent all of my late teens and twenties without any medical or dental insurance. i couldnt afford it which lead to some not so great problems. i would not marry anyone who could not provide that for our children and i.

I was dating him before he joined so I guess I didn't marry him because of the benefits but he joined because of them as he couldn't afford health insurance.

My dh and I were married for 2 1/2 years before he enlisted, so definitely not.

I had universal healthcare before we got married  So I would say going down in medical care wasn't the reason for our marriage. He was just too darn cute back in the day I couldn't resist. ahahha

The travel part is the one that makes me laugh. Since we got married our only travel has been home to see our families. I traveled WAY more before we married than I ever do now. After 8 years, this is the first year we are taking a real vacation that isn't to go see family and I STILL feel guilty about it!
