    Military cover other mans baby?

    Advertisements
    Did that title make sense?

    With the talk of not covering surrogacy what about a woman who is married to a man in the military BUT should become pregnant by a man not in the military? That includes rape or just cheating on the husband? Since the child is not a dependent of the military personal should the woman be responsible for the bills?

    I guess she would be responsible for the bills if the military member chose not to add the child as his dependent after it was proven that it was not his biologically.

    Its tough to say, it all boils down to the MM choosing to add the child to his page 2.

    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    Techincally, though, the child IS a dependent becuase he/she is being born to a married woman and the legal presumption is that the husband IS the father until/unless otherwise determined by a court.

    I agree, and in a way it is a dependant, because it is a dependant of the MM's spouse who is his dependant, but I think he would have to right to choose wither or not he wanted that child to be covered, just as if it was a step child. DH could have refused to have ODS covered because he is not his (I had him before we met), but choose to, it is his decision.

    As long as they are married, there won't be any bills. I suppose if he wanted to the servicemember could divorce her and then she would have to pay.

    But I don't think this is about coverage for the child per se. This is about coverage for the mother while pregnant. He would have no right to say whether her pregnancy should be covered unless he divorces her.
