The Association of the United States Army has a great article that you should check out.

Resiliency: Male military spouse style features Wayne Perry talking about how male military spouses are finding ways to build resilient communities. Macho Spouse is one such community.


Here is part of the AUSA article:

Manning the Homefront has made great strides this year, according to Perry.  The group launched a website--machospouse.com--named its first male military spouse of the year, and is"growing by leaps and bounds,"he said. 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."  He said the number is on the rise as more women join the military. Counting dual military couples, he said, male spouses are part of  9 percent of marriages in the Army as well as 34 percent of divorces.
