My question is regarding UMCJ Artical 134 in the case of Adultery,

My question is regarding UMCJ Artical 134 in the case of Adultery, I am married but i'm stationed Overseas My wife and I have an Open Relationship. I recently Slept with a japanese local in Sep and she found out she was pregnate there was a dispute over the funds that would be split for the abortion but long story short i went on leave and when i returned home she had contacted my command about this issue. The local is not aware of my status and our dispute is just over the money which can be resolved quickly between me and her and we have a meeting date set to do just that. My issue is with the command which today just informed me of this matter and had me sign a form saying that i had been notified and i did not leave a statement at that time because i am not aware of my options in this matter. I believe i can have the japanese local redo her statement or atleast sign a paper stateing she is statified with our agreement of payment but i believe the command will still seek punishment for the adultery portion. now i can have a signed statement from my wife or verbel statement over the phone if need be showing she is aware of the situation and is ok with it. What advice if any can you give me to my next course of action to protect myself and my family. Thank you

My daughter married a military man 4 months ago, shes 8 weeks

My daughter married a military man 4 months ago, she's 8 weeks pregnant. He's physically and emotionally abusive. They live in El Paso, she wants to come back to KC and terminate the pregnancy because she's afraid of him. He told her that if she goes back to KC, the military will meet her at the airport, take her into custody and prevent her from aborting. He doesn't allow her out of their apartment now and she's afraid that he'll lose control and kill her. Will the military prevent her from terminating this pregnancy and getting away from him? My daugher forwarded, to me, texts that suggest that my daughter has no recourse...and that the military can, and will, prevent her any rights to abort. He's unstable, yet it seems that he has the military to back him up, although he's mentally unstable. She's not only being threatened by him, but by his mother and she's afraid to leave their bedroom. She's not even allowed to leave the apartment long enough to walk their dog. Is there any recourse for her?
