This is will be fair for everyone and it'll be safer too.

One question though...what if a servicemember is station in a country where homosexuality is illegal or very hostile towards it? Turkey is one country that is hostile towards homosexuality, but also many Middle Eastern countries are as well. Will the DoD make those assignments dependent restricted tours for those servicemember or give family seperation pay? That seems very unfair to heterosexual couples
Why is it being a non-English speaking country a stipulation of yours? What does that matter?

How about no free marriage leave at all?
