Getting Married

I just turned 19, and currently is stationed in Illesheim, Germany. I am engaged and will be getting married soon but my future wife will be 17. Will I have to wait til she is 18 to have her enrolled in DEERS and come live with me overseas?

I can’t find anything in the regulations about the age that the spouse needs to be to covered in DEERS. Your best bet would be to speak to a DEERS representative and find out for sure. Whether she will be allowed to move with you will depend on your command granting sponsorship for her.
