Hi. My fianc! has just been offered a posting with the mpgs just it's further away than we hoped and he couldn't commute. I know once we get married we can get housed near the base but I currently have a council house and a 17 year old daughter who starts uni next September. She would be coming home in the holidays as uni accommodation dosnt allow you to stay there anyways. That and she wants to. My worry at the moment is that because of her age and studies she is not classed as a dependent child and won't be entitled to a room in the house. I couldn't move if that was the case. Any advice for a confused woman lol

Give the Housing allocation enquiries a call, depending on where you are then the houses might all be 3 bed anyway. I can't remember the rules exactly, but I think under 18 and in full time education they are classed as dependant (can't remember whether the dependancy finishes at 18 or when they actually finish the full time education, sorry)
Yeah I know how it feels already as he was navy before so he was hardly ever home. If not deployed for 6 months he was at sea training. In a year he spent 9 weeks at home. That's what prompted him to make the move to mpgs. We was just really hoping for a local post. Once we are married I wouldn't mind moving about as I would be going to and with mpgs if you want promoting then you have to be prepared for it too. But that's all good
