It now has some 95 members from all services, some referred to the group by military wives who know of it.
Perry called the current number of male spouses in the Army--20,000 apart from another 16,000 who are part of dual military couples--"staggering." Â He said the number is on the rise as more women join the military. Counting dual military couples, he said, male spouses are part ofÂ Â 9 percent of marriages in the Army as well as 34 percent of divorces.
