We`re on the same boat and we want to get married. When is the best time to do it? You must notify your chain of command that you want to get married. As soon as you get married, one of you must leave the ship: if you apply to be parked together and you are currently in different geographical locations, you will have to apply again every 6 months. If it`s refused, run them again! NOTE: If you are not currently geographically affected, they may require that you terminate your assigned visit. If you have just received some kind of schooling, they do not have to respond to your request. If you are a first-time sailor, you do not have to respond to your request. Yes, you are! If you don`t ask, the answer is definitely no. If you ask, the answer might be yes. You have just experienced a life-changing event (Boot Camp) and it just seems that you share 95% of things in common with everyone at school. The reality is that they are only known in a school. You haven`t met your families, you haven`t been to their hometowns, you haven`t really hooked up with them without the Navy, like a big storm cloud, overshadowing everything you do (from haircuts to clothes, through uniform, conversational topics and PT). You`re in a bubble.
It doesn`t matter. That`s what a school is supposed to do for you. You`ve found your tribe. Prices have this incredibly strange way of bringing together similar people. Similar work interests (IT, HT, HM), similar intellectual interests (Nuke, KTI), similar stereotypes (AOs)… For the first time in your life, you are surrounded (probably) by people who love the same things you do, and who have also experienced the same life-changing event during Command recall training (they speak like you, you walk at the same pace, you look like the same uniform). Training members are assigned to an appropriate visit for these newly acquired skills, which may exclude or limit consideration of the spouse`s notice of participation for the duration of this additional training. If you think you don`t have a family care plan, you and your spouse should sit down with both chains of command and have a really serious discussion. Seriously, make an appointment with your MCC and bring your spouse to discuss the situation.
The sooner you do it, the better. Don`t wait until the week before it`s made available to tell your LPO that you can`t get started because you don`t have anyone to watch your child, okay? This is a serious failure of responsibility. Your chain of command is here to help. CMCs can call and speed up orders to allow one of you to work ashore. In 99% of cases, your order will prevent you from helping you stay in the Navy. You can also encourage one of you to apply for the Career Intermission Program. There are a lot of options out there and your chain of command can and will help you. But you have to give them enough time to work, so talk to them. As part of the update, sailors must now request the co-site only once more instead of each new order negotiation. This request is stored by the sailor`s details manager, unless he or she asks to remove it, according to the Navy.
18 months before your new PRD, you should both be closer to your retailer. Don`t wait until you`re in your 12-month trading window to pass on a 1306. Get it on your retailer at least 18 months of your PRD. As a double-mil, you need to be proactive and stay in touch with your retailers (PLT: get someone to read your emails). Be prepared to call and leave messages with your preferences. Also understand that the options are super limited. Normally you take what your retailer offers and are grateful – because the alternative is one of you in San Diego and the other in Diego Garcia. You both pass on a 1306 requirement to your retailer, which says, “Respect your spouse with [rank][rate] [first, last, middle][last four of SSN].” NOTE: Regardless of your rank or compulsory assignment, you have the right to do so.
