How can I get my orders deleted so I can stay at the same duty station as my fiancee?

Top I am in a jam! I am on orders and my fiancee is in the Army but has only been on this base for about 3 months. We just found out, she is pregnant. What are my options to deleted from orders so we can stay together?

The comprehensive guide to the Military Decision Making Process (MDMP)

Since you are not married and you are not in the Army Married Couples Program (MACP)  your options are very limited.



  1. Calling your assignment manager and explaining the issue to them and ask them if they will assist you.  They are under no obligation to do so.  Even if they do remove you from this assignment there is nothing that prevents them from putting you on another assignment.
  2. Your girlfriend could consider getting out of the Army as she will be offered that option when she informs the chain of command she is pregnant.
  3. If you get married you can enroll in the MACP and the Army will try to assign the 2 of you together for your next assignment but it will not help with your current assignment.

Unfortunately there are no easy answers to this situation.
