Why is it recommended that an engaged Marine recruit should marry during boot camp leave?
My fiancee is currently in Parris Island, and we weren't planning on marrying until after Boot, MCT and MOS are all completed. Today his recruiter strongly suggested we marry during his ten day leave between boot and MCT instead. He said that if I don't marry him then that paperwork will take a long time and I may not be able to go to his PDS when he's stationed. I don't understand. Married is married. Why shouldn't I be able to? What's so complicated about this so-called paperwork? Anyone?

Paperwork takes time. If it takes too long, you may have to pay out of your own pocket for your personal moving expenses. His paychecks will be better whilst married, therefor, as a family, you'll be able to save more money. This "so-called paperwork" controls every move he makes and every penny he earns.

What the recruiter means is when your fiance leaves MOS school for his first Duty Station he will not have accompanied orders. So that means no moving reimbursement and a larger possibility of him being stationed in Japan. And the paperwork is a SOB if you marry once you hit the fleet, that is what my wife and I did... More

The paperwork is ridiculous, never give the military an original of anything because they will lose it. What should take three seconds takes half a month or longer to do in the military. That's probably why he wants you to get married now. You should do whatever you want to do though... More
