    Are there rules for dating between academies? Army/Navy dating. It doesn't seem like a good idea to me, but I'm a dad.

    You can. My room mate married a West Point grad. It has its challenges like any long distance relationship.

    If dating a femid is called "dark siding", what is this called? Or should they just keep quiet. DS said he won't mind taking crap for her. But I dunno. Lol

    No one cares to be honest. Sure there is some good natured ribbing, but it's just what it is. Of course to this day we still have Army Navy battles when we get together. The wedding had 1/2 Army and 1/2 Navy/USMC sword detail. It will be a challenge to make it work, but he will have am someone who totally understands the life of a Plebe which will help too.

    Yep, no one cares. And having dark sided multiple times, it wasn't all that bad (until it was).

    Having once had a friend in the Army who now works for the Navy, well, let's just say, holidays are best spent apart.
