Discipline and Conduct COMDTINST M1600.2 Chapter 2 2. Romantic Relationships between Officer and Enlisted The custom of the Service prohibits romantic relationships outside of marriage between officer and enlisted personnel.This includes such relationships with members of other military services.Navigation Rules are regulations which aid mariners in safe navigation, just as driving laws aid vehicles in safe driving.Charts produced by the National Ocean Service show the COLREGS Demarcation Line, which denotes when mariners should follow the 72 COLREGS (outside the Demarcation lines) or the Inland Navigation Rules (inside the Demarcation Lines).However, misconduct, including fraternization, is neither excused nor mitigated by subsequent marriage.
Blakey and Admiral Thomas Collins, Commandant of the Coast Guard, the two agencies have resolved a long-standing uncertainty over how to determine which will lead the investigation of a major marine accident.The views and opinions posted by members do not reflect the views and opinions of the United States Coast Guard. The National Transportation Safety Board and the U. Coast Guard have concluded a new agreement setting out each agency's role in the investigation of major marine shipping accidents.They establish a consistent way to navigate safely and avoid collisions when two boats are crossing paths, are on course to meet head-on, or when one boat wishes to overtake another. The aids to navigation system is not intended to identify every shoal or obstruction to navigation which exists in the navigable waters of the United States, but rather provides for reasonable marking of marine features as resources permit.

I've read the entire CG Interpersonal Relationships (Fraternization) policy and it would appear there is no way around it being possible, and I can't get any help from JAG when attempting to seek their advice, so here goes: Can in any way, a reserve enlisted member in one district (out of the chain) date and eventually marry an active duty officer in another district and still stay in the reserves and without it hurting the officer's career? Yes, I've seen the part in the policy about getting married not creating a presumption of misconduct but also not excusing or mitigating it if assumed it occurred prior to marriage.I think that is pretty black & white and answers my question, but of course there are plenty of people who think because one is a reservist out of the chain it does not matter, and love creates desperate hope. JBraz I'm going to try to address the need for group tags etc. Marriage between Officer and Enlisted The custom of the Service accepts officer and enlisted marriages which occur before the officer receives a commission.As mentioned above, COLREGS are applicable on waters outside of established navigational lines of demarcation.The lines are called COLREGS Demarcation lines and delineate those waters upon which mariners shall comply with the Inland or International Rules."This week's agreement is a milestone," said Chairman Blakey, " I welcome the opportunity it provides for the Safety Board and the Coast Guard to work together more closely and effectively to improve marine safety, limit duplication of effort and the expenditure of federal resources, and further strengthen public confidence in our agencies." Blakey expressed appreciation for the Coast Guard's cooperation in working out the terms of the MOU.The agreement is in response to legislation requiring the two agencies to clarify when the NTSB will lead a marine investigation and to develop standards for determining if an accident involves significant issues related to the Coast Guard's performance of its safety functions that may require independent review. For the most part, the Safety Board expects to concentrate its activities on passenger vessels and those marine casualties that risked or threatened high loss of life.
