    ....not quite... hah! Ladies, what do you know about sponsorships? He wants me to move with him to Italy- ok great!.. but... don't I have to be a dependent to be on a sponsorship with him? How long does one take to process and get approved?

    Sponsorship

    I've lived in Japan and Germany, spouse/dependent both times. If you move to Italy on your own, you don't get the housing, food, or cost of living allowance that make it possible to comortably live there. You also don't have access to things like base legal, medical, commissary, etc.

    Are you prepared to pay out of pocket (with your Italian bank account) if you break your arm, get food poisoning, have a conflict with your landlord, etc.? If not, you should not consider going unsponsored. Sorry to be blunt, but it isn't a good idea.

    I'm not married, I have taken into consideration what it will be like unsponsered. I would like to know how long does a sponsorship take to process (if any time at all).. does it go through automatically when we get married, or do I have to wait through an approval process?

    there is an approval process. If you do a search My.Heros.Mrs's just went through it to be able to join her husband in Italy - also I know there have been some posts in the OCONUS forum with tons of information on command sponsorship
