    Fraternization?

    Advertisements
    I have a friend, and her husband is a different rank than mine. (both enlisted) My husband isn't stationed at the base yet, but when he will be, he won't be with the same company or unit as her husband.

    Her and I want us all to be able to hang out and have burgers 'n' whatnot, but we're afraid of the fraternization.

    Would they get in trouble?

    Just from what I've seen on here in the past.... I'm pretty sure it's a non-issue if they're both enlisted and in different companies/units.

    I don't see the issue and neither does DH. He says that because they are in different units, it shouldn't be a problem.

    My dh said if that there at different commands then it really doesnt matter at all. He also said even IF they were working in the same command as long as they werent in the same CHAIN OF COMMAND then you would be ok.... Meaning that if say your dh was his supervisor/boss and the other guy was below him..then yes... they couldnt hang out then.

    It's a non-issue, especially if they're different units.

    What froglove said.

    When in doubt-ask your command enlisted advisor (I don't know what Marine's call them). They've never steered us wrong.

    My hubby is an E4 and his E6's hang out with us all the time... At my old command it was two up/down before it was an issue, or enlisted/officer.... But I think you should be ok

    In my experiences (so AF) that is a rank difference that will not matter. Especially since the higher ranking will not be in charge of the lower ranking. That would also for officer/enlisted as well IME.

    The biggest concern is if one was the supervisor of the other.
