USA: Marines Say Spouse Clubs Must Admit Same Sex Spouses

US Marines Say Spouse Clubs Must Admit Same Sex SpousesThe US Marine Corps has issued advice to its legal staff to say that spouses clubs operating on its military bases must admit gay couples, or will have to leave.

The Marines are the first to tackle such issues in the wake of the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, back in 2011, which banned gay service members from being open about their sexuality, reports the Associated Press.

This advice comes after an issue arose at the Army’s Fort Bragg in North Carolina, where a gay spouse was denied entry to the spouses club operating there.
