    From what I understand, your pay with a spouse will be the same as your pay with a child. I did it the other way (married, then had a kid), but my pay didn't change at all. A child is a dependent, a spouse is a dependent. You should be able to get BAH anyway.

      You will receive BAH with the dependents rate. I believe you may receive family separation but you need to speak to a finance rep at BCT and have all your documents (Marriage Certificate, lease, etc.)

        I don't remember getting family separation at BCT, but I definitely got it at BOLC.

          I received BAH and Separation Pay during basic training. (2011)
