I used to live near a military base, and I can tell you anytime there was any type of deployment the GI's wives would stream into town's bars like a swarm of horny locusts even before their husband's MAC flights were fully wheels up. They were looking for one thing and one thing only, and they usually had no trouble finding it. It was what you would call a Target Rich Environment.

But don't worry, I'm sure that sweet little girl you're engaged to is totally different from all the rest.

If any of you single military guys out there are thinking of getting married, I sincerely urge you to reconsider that decision.

Trust me, there is a reason I am 31 and have never been married. 4 years of TDY, and 3.5 years of short tours would have made short work of any marriage. Now if the .mil would stop paying idiots to marry skanks they would make an actual impact on the divorce rate. I really appreciate the $100K or so I have been fucked out of for being single and costing the military much less in PCS costs, health care, etc.

Uh oh!

Actually, what my wife really needs when I'm gone is a step ladder. I'd hate to get an e-mail on deployment asking me how to reach for the spaghetti sauce.

As a friend of mine once observed while he was in the service: "If I end up married, it's because I was issued a wife."

I agree, more money for anyone, in any fashion, because they are married or have kids is just asanine. A wife and/or kids does not make you any better at your job, and if anything can be a distraction. Pay everyone the same base pay, BAH etc based ot garde and time in service only.

Glad to hear at least some sane people agree with me. Unfortunately we are in the minority in the .mil and especially at higher E and W levels. I am in class right now (NCO Academy) with 14 other students, guess how many have never been married? A whole bunch of them are "nonners" anyway, and have never deployed, so their perfect little stateside AF marriages have been great. Funny that marital status is the one area that is allowed to be discriminated against, unlike sex, race, national origin, religion, etc. I think if the .mil introduced a plan to pay single servicemembers a $100 a month bonus it would pay for itself in a couple of years.

Hmph!

The USAF had a much simpler matchmaking procedure.

When I arrived at my duty station, and met my "old school" Squadron Commander, he gave me a list of the two single female lieutenants on base, and instructed me to limit my dating activities to those two uggos.

I was freaking amazed. I thought he was kidding, but kept my mouth shut, waiting for him to play out his joke sometime during the meeting.


He never did.


I asked his secretary the next day if this was for real, and she said "hell yes, and don't get caught dating anyone else".

I learned later that this kind of nonsense was a daily occurance and the commanders fully enforced it.


S.A.C. sucked donkey balls.

When I arrived at Clark AB, my Squadron Commander greeted me thusly: "Hi. Welcome to Clark. Don't fuck your housegirl."

TheCynic posted this link and it applies here. www.nomarriage.com/why_foreign_women_are_better.html

A huge percentage of American women are selfish, flighty, insecure, needy and psychotic, and quite capable of concealing those traits during the dating phase. White 'career' American chicks are the bottom of the barrel marriage-wise.

Foreign women from South America, Eastern Europe, and Asia are at the top. Only guys who travel (in other words, guys who are successful and ambitious enough to travel a lot) find these. But they never, ever go back. Foreign-born women living in the US are the next best. They get married early...they are highly sought-after by American guys for their wifely skills (hell, any women who has ANY ability to be a wife is better than your average American chick, who knows NOTHING about being a wife)

Bottom of the barrel---white American chicks. Yecch.
