Military retired dating
Here are some basics of the military retirement pay system that you should be aware of: For Navy and Marine Corps members, you are considered to be a "retired member" for classification purposes if you are an enlisted member with over 30 years service, or a warrant or commissioned officer.
Enlisted Navy and Marine Corps members with less than 30 years service are transferred to the Fleet Reserve/Fleet Marine Corps Reserve and their pay is referred to as "retainer pay".
Air Force and Army members with over 20 years service are all classified as retired and receive retired pay. The law treats retired pay and retainer pay exactly the same way.
When a Navy or Marine Corps member completes 30 years, including time on the retired rolls in receipt of retainer pay, the Fleet Reserve status is changed to retired status, and they begin receiving retired pay. Military retirement pay is unlike civilian retirement pay systems.
If you don’t want to read the rest of this article, there is one surefire way to know if your soldier is fake: If a soldier you’re “dating” online asks you for money for ANY reason, it’s a scam. What he really means is she’s going to be his next victim. He is in a special operations unit and therefore cannot share any information with you.
And he is the one who just happened to find her while he was looking around and decided she’s going to be his future wife.
Some people have actually gone to great lengths in order to use such knowledge to manipulate people into romance or sex.
The military retirement pay system used to be easy to understand: You put in 20 years, and you got 50 percent of your base pay immediately upon retirement.
You put in more than 20 years and you got 2.5 percent more for each year of active duty after 20 years (up to 75 percent).
Men and women alike are both guilty of this, whether they are educated on the fundamentals of courtship or not.
People use mind games in order to manipulate their lover into never leaving, or just to keep a fake relationship or attraction a float.
