    He'll get BAH with dependents.. and that's ALWAYS more than Single BAH. His base pay will not go up, nor will his BAS or COMRATS if he's getting those.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    I am not sure. I know that we aren't married but Chris has to live off base due to housing. He told me that his BAH is part of his regular paycheck, it is just seperated. But, even if he was living in base housing he would have to pay to live there, so he said it is pretty much the same.

    I have no idea if that helped, but that is the extent of my knowledge!

    No.....base pay is the same whether married or not.
    BAH is paid at the rate of single or WITH dependents. The WITH dependents rate is higher.

    Nooooooooooo. Your FIL has it wrong

    Base pay will always remain the same no matter what. Plus he will be getting his BAH and whatever entitlements he is getting (ie..sub pay, sea duty, etc..). BAH with dep is more than BAH w/o dep.

    Thanks I was so confused on why he would get paid less on his base pay when he gets married.
