    Question for wives & girlfriends

    How many of you think you should be treated the same as your other, who is on active duty?
    Anything special you think you're due, that they don't get?

    What if their spouse is in the Guard or Reserve? Are THEY GTG in using their husband's rank? What if the spouse is a male? Course with the repeal of DADT....the spouse could be a wife and be a male... hwell

    Sorry I'm late to the discussion, but is this a serious question?
    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

    Yes. Legally wed spouses of LGB AD should get the same benefits as other spouses of AD personnel.

    That wasn't the question, but thanks for taking the opportunity to hop on your soap box.

    The question was whether or not a spouse is entitled to the same treatment as their active duty partner just for being married to them.

    Since I'm -30 days away from becoming the Mrs instead of the other SSgt in the family, my answer would be: hell no.

    If you want to be treated in a decent manner, be a decent person.
    If you want respect, earn it. Don't demand it.
    No one cares who your husband is. No one cares who your wife is. The best way to get your other recognized is to be a total bitch or asshole to someone else in their unit.

    And the military owes you nothing unless you've got a uniform on your back, and I'm not just talking about the half nakey pics you take in your other's ABU/ACU top either. You're owed nothing special so stop asking.

    This is not directed at anyone on here.... it's just my answer to the questions.

    Now that I'm separated from the AF I say screw that. I hold no rank no authority. I should be respected like anybody else. I'm not a military member anymore. Unless, I'm getting an LES I shouldn't be treated like a member holding rank. That is a stupid mentality and some spouses should be informed of their rank. Which doesn't exist!!

    I think it is spot on.
