Army regulation on officer dating enlisted
A Question was brought to me, and im not sure on the answer. Ive heard a a think called the emaculate marriage, meaning they say neither of them knew what proffesion each was in and got married.
If an officer and an enlisted soldier wanted to get married and the officer wasnt in the enlisted soldier chain of command is this ok? Once its done its ok, but not dating and what not, and if you find out about each others rank you call it off.
Examples of fraternization include going to one another’s private homes or to clubs together, dating, sexual activities or any kind of favoritism.
The senior ranking officer in such situations is considered to have greater ability to promptly discontinue any behaviors in breach of policy, but both soldiers are considered equally accountable.

Just because your chain of command is ignorant of your actions, doesn't make those actions right.
If you do get married and your are in each other's chain of command, one of you will be removed to prevent anyone trying to say your are using each other's rank for personal profit.[quote:43c8029963="gi_janearng"]The Army cannot tell you who you can and cannot marry.[/quote:43c8029963]Yes, they can.[quote:43c8029963]AR 600-20 Army Command Policy Chapter 4 para 14c.
Certain types of personal relationships between officers and enlisted personnel are prohibited.
How do you marry somebody not knowing his/her profession? Anyhow, the marriage between an officer and enlisted is not prohibited, but it is very much encouraged for a one of the spouses to give up the Army.
