Hi. My husband and I are going through a divorce. I am a 20-20-20 spouse. He is an E9. He walked out on me in 2012 because he was having an affair with a woman who was on the PA Megan's Law. There's more to it, but...I'm sure you,ve heard stories such as this in the past. As many other military wives, I raised our daughter and supported his military career and gave up my own chance to go to college while he finished and got his degree in business and then went full time Army. My first question is this, does this qualify as a military misconduct due to having an extra-marital affair with a registered sex offender in the same state he in representing in the United States Army? She is still on the registry. Also, on another note What would my entitlements be? I know I am eligible for healthcare and commissary benefits. But as far as alimony, I'm not sure what a fair amount would be and for how long. We are agreeing that I will receive 50% of his retirement. His BAH is: $1,060.00 Base pay is : E-9, 26yrs. Thanks. Also...There is no dependent children.
