Officers dating other officers
All branches of the United States military maintain regulations that govern dating, and any fraternization, among both officers and enlisted soldiers.
When dating takes place between soldiers of the same rank or between a solider and a civilian employee or government contractor, military regulations only prohibit those relationships which directly affect morale, discipline, respect for authority or otherwise interfere with a mission.
Although immensely helpful to the majority, the issues female officers face goes, many times, unacknowledged.
Stereotypes and challenges abound in their quest for a significant other.
Dating is subject to the same scrutiny as any other form of fraternization.
As such, it must reflect professionalism and cannot engender any favoritism or abuses of position.
