Before I begin: I did use the search method first, but my scenario has not yet been brought up...
I have been with my girlfriend for 2.5 years and we have much in common. I'm not going to tell you my life story.
My Situation: Her and I both are in DEP and we joined not for the reason of doing what the other is also doing. She wanted to be in the AF for a very long time and I knew I would like to join the military as well.
We will probably be going to BMT around the same time, but our Tech School will most likely be different lengths.
Am I correct that you find where your stationed in Tech?
Is there a certain phase or time you will find out where you will be located while in Tech?
If I do plan on wanting to live with her and our bases are different what is the % chance we will be able to get stationed together if we get married?
I know our jobs have to be available at the same base, am I right?
If we do get married who's location do we go to?
I.E. She gets Hickam, I get Minot. Both places are available for either one of us. Where would we end up?
If we get married and one of our jobs is not available at the other's base does one have to retrain?
When is the right time to get married while in Tech School?
What happens is she is already stationed and I am still in tech and we get married?
I would only get married for the sole purpose of living with each other in the AF, that's if we still like each other by then.
Thanks for all your future responses to my questions, I appreciate you taking the time to help me out.
Yeah I would have to second PM's view on this.... if the thought of marriage is on your mind at all.... I don't think you'd have that kind of an opinion on your relationship
OK OK so i pulled P in on this one , his first question is what are ya'll both going to tech school for? P says that you dont find out till almost the end of tech school where your getting stationed , the air force will try to put you two as close as possible but that is all they promise even if your married you could still be put at separate bases.... and P's last advice if you two truely love each other get married before basic , it causes alot of problems if you get married during basic or tech school .... now on to my two cents , i totaly agree with PM , getting married just so ya'll get stationed together isn't a good idea , get married cause ya'll love each other, not out of convenience. .. oh and P also whats to know how old you two are?
I am Mrs. S yeah!!!
If you're sure you want to get married (which it sounds like you're not), then doing it earlier would be better... but you're going to have to get the information entered into the system, so your assignment can be worked.
WHoe'ever's job is more critical will drive the assignment. If there is no spot for the other, they don't have to put you together.
If they do put you apart initially, one will have to stay for 12 months before being able to move with the other, assuming there is a spot.
And it doesn't get any better the higher you get. I am laving my current assignment in Jan, going to CO. THey didn't have a spot for my wife, so she's stuck here until June, and then going to NM, 5 hours away.

wow...sorry to hear that it must suck, hopefully you got some vacation days to use.
I also will take into consideration all of your input on this. It helped clear up a few things, we're both biologically 18 years old.
