Can I be forced to have a family care plan if I do not fall into a FCP category?

AR 600-20 outlines specifically who is required to have a Family Care Plan. It also states in AR 600-20 paragraph 5-3 i states: All married Soldiers who have Family members are encouraged to complete and maintain a Family care plan, even if not specifically required to do so by this regulation.
