Anonymous asked
My boyfriend is a marine & his MOS is Intel. I am leaving for bootcamp soon and my MOS is also Intel. We recently have been talking about marriage. Would the fact that we will be working in the same field cause a problem ?

Not that I know of, so long as you keep it professional during working hours.
