What is the life of Indian Navy Officer if he/she is married to another Indian Navy Officer, like a male officer to a female medical offi…

Answer by Vikram Karve:

Earlier women were permitted in the Navy only as medical officers and many of them did marry their fellow male officers, especially fellow male medical officers.
After the induction of women in the Navy – the trend of Male and Female Naval Officers getting married in on the rise – owing to a number of reasons like opportunity for intimacy in the workplace/romance in off-duty hours in officers' messes or as "marriages of convenience" etc.
The "powers-that-be" also tacitly encourages such "in service" marriages by giving sops like "spouse postings", "spouse married accommodation seniority carryover" "double rations" "double liquor quota" etc – so you get "double perks" if you marry a fellow navy officer.
Also – a male officer marrying a medical officer has some added advantages, especially getting better "spouse posting stations" where lady medical officers are posted
There is a contrarian view that such "marriages within the navy" are tantamount to "fraternization" and should be discouraged. On a personal front too – many couples may not like to carry their work with each other 24/7 and discuss "shop" at home.
So – whereas – materially it may be advantageous and convenient for male and female navy officers to marry each other – whether – at an emotional level – it is qualitatively desirable – that is debatable.
