    Living together but not married

    Advertisements
    Is it possible in the Marine Corps active duty? I mean I know it would have to be off-base. Would we still get a housing allowance? DF is a Cpl if that makes a difference...I'm not sure if it does. I'm clueless when it comes to this kind of stuff.

    He has to get command approval. He might be approved for BAH if he's at Pendleton. If he's at Lejeune, he most likely will not. If he's somewhere else, I have no idea. It depends on how full the barracks are and on his command. If he does get BAH, it will be without dependents.

    It's possible that he could qualify for single BAH, it just depends on his rank. He'll have to talk to his command about that.

    All depends on rank, command, and barracks room needs.

    soory not sure what a CPL is but if he is an e4- and there are barracks he will be assigned barracks until he is E5 or gets married-

    you can "live" together- you can get an apt and he can come over and "spend the night" alot - he would just have to maintain a barracks room -
    but he will not get the BAH to help cover the rent

    As you found out it will depend on his rank. Based on your ugh Lejeune he is there. I don't know for sure what rank he has to be (I guess most bases or branches have separate views on this) but who knows for sure until he asks. Maybe he will get lucky.

    Good luck.
