You've probably heard a few things about enlisted wives, too.
Many of the things you've heard are unflattering, and some are down right cruel.

Or an unwritten rule about fraternization.
Or it's for the sake of the husband's job.
This kind of thinking is almost supported by the spouse club structure.
