You are on your own, my dear. The military only gives benefits to legal spouses. I don't have a clue what he was referring to.
Sorry, I misread your question. Married you are entitled to rent on base housing, access to medical care, commissary and box privileges, chaplain and counseling services, and many more base privileges. The airmen's pay is also more when they are married.
Did you know recruiters lie.... and why not join yourself. The Airforce is very friendly, cares more than the other branches.<br />
Your husband, gets a pay check, that is what the USAF takes care of, medical care is average, if you have a treatment facility. It is not a free ride.
I wasn't in the Airforce , but the Army , be careful , but I do know several AF guys in fact my daughters Bf just went off to basic.. from what my retired friend has told me, really the AF is behind the scenes , don't get me wrong they do carry out special missions etc..and I know some AF guys will kill me, but for most part depending on what he signed up for he really has it made.<br />
But as far as the gov..picking up ALL the slack I call BS....cough cough.. if your not married don't plan on to much if any help. when I was in if you weren't married you were required to stay on ba<x>se regardless , and freshly new recurits married and to stay in on ba<x>se housing . But if you are or get married they do and will pick up all medical, dental, some housing , some schooling etc... but be prepared for allot of waiting , questions , allot of running here and there and back there ..think the term red tape...it really means something ...in the Army we had a saying " Hurry up and wait " you do a lot of that .

Don't count on that. A recruiter will say just about anything short of against the law. A few of my friends found that out.
You only get paid if you join. They don't hand out the money for nothing.
