Scrolling Saturdays: Marine Wife Recruiters

Scrolling Saturdays w Mrs. Marine
If you have never hear of it before (it did not start here), Scrolling Saturday, is a day to dig through your Archives and find an old post to re-post again, because maybe it didn't get the exposure it deserves, or maybe it was just one your proud of and want to share it with your newer readers. Either way, it's up to you!

I have been wanting to do this for a while! So here it goes; I originally posted this in November 2007

This is funny - My sister and I came up with this.... This came about shortly after I arrived in 29 Palms, our first duty station. My sister and a few of her friends came to visit and attend the Marine Corp Ball with us and all of my husbands single buddies wanted to be "hooked-up" with my friends. It's all in fun, nothing serious.

Marine Wife Recruiters
Objective: To successfully recruit and establish relationships between your husbands' fellow Marine's and your female friends and to promote healthy relationships between the two with the ultimate goal of marriage.

Private – To obtain the rank of Private, you must be legally married to an active duty Marine.
Private First Class – Introducing the potential couple, even on the telephone, will result in the rank of Private First Class.
Lance Corporal – When the potential couple meets in person the recruiter will obtain the rank of Lance Corporal.
Corporal – When the new couple has decided to be an exclusive couple, therefor becoming an official couple the recruiter will obtain the rank of Corporal.
Sergeant – When the new couple first consummates the relationship (i.e. engages in sexual intercourse) the recruiter will obtain the rank of Sergeant. If the couple engages in sexual relations prior to becoming an “official couple,” the rank of Corporal may be skipped and the rank of Sergeant will be obtained.
Staff Sergeant – When the new couple has spent six months as an official couple, the recruiter will obtain the rank of Staff Sergeant.
Gunnery Sergeant – When the new couple announces an engagement to be married the recruiter will obtain the rank of Gunnery Sergeant. If the couple announces an engagement prior to the six-month mark, the rank of Staff Sergeant will be skipped and the rank of Gunnery Sergeant will be obtained.
Master Sergeant – When the couple sets a date for their nuptials to take place the recruiter will obtain the rank of Master Sergeant.
First Sergeant – When the couple legalizes their union (gets married) the recruiter will obtain the ranking of First Sergeant. Potentially, the recruiter may bypass the ranking of Gunnery Sergeant and Master Sergeant if the new couple bypasses the engagement process by eloping.
Master Gunnery Sergeant – When the newlyweds celebrate their one-year wedding anniversary the recruiter will obtain the ranking of Master Gunnery Sergeant.
Sergeant Major – When the couple celebrates their five-year wedding anniversary the recruiter will obtain the ranking of Sergeant Major.
Sergeant Major of the Marine Wife Recruiters – When the couple celebrates their ten-year wedding anniversary the recruiter will obtain the ranking of Sergeant Major of the Marine Wife Recruiters.
