I also think you need to consider the implications of this for her. My company CO knows about the relationship but not her status as a Officer.I'm almost certain that my BN CO (who I've served with before and knows me much better) is aware of her status but has not said anything to me. If you are concerned about UCMJ liability there is probably none.The problems typically creep in when the fraternization occurs between a supervisor and subordinate, whether the relationship is romantic in nature or simply a strong friendship.I'm a US Army NCO and am dating a woman who is a Officer in the Danish armed forces.
The UCMJ does not differentiate the sex of the offender or the object of their affection.
I'm thinking of asking her to marry me (being Danish she might ask me first) what legal issues am I looking at?
She is not planning on staying in the military but does not want to leave yet and I'm a lifer.
After all, the UCMJ and the Constitution both provide for punishment of the crime.
I guess I'm trying to figure out where the UCMJ stops and the Constitution takes over. Originally posted by Convict If a soldier aiding the enemy is treason, why have two laws regarding the crime?
I have personally only heard of a couple of cases where someone was charged with adultery, and it was in conjunction with more serious offenses. Elements.(1) That the accused wrongfully had sexual intercourse with a certain person;(2) That, at the time, the accused or the other person was married to someone else; and(3) That, under the circumstances, the conduct of the accused was to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces or was of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces. (2) Conduct prejudicial to good order and discipline or of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces.
