This thesis examines the perceived effects of marriage on the cohesion of Fleet Marine Force units. Focused interviews were conducted with 25 Marine officers. All interviews were audio taped and then transcribed. Analysis of the transcripts revealed 11 general themes. These themes covered many topics, including how spouse affect Fleet Marine Force Units, the connection between living in barracks and cohesion, the contrast between single and married Marines, and the judgment of junior enlisted Marines concerning marriage. A major finding drawn from the themes is that the Marine Corps must continue to strive for a deeper understanding of the relationship between marriage and cohesion and how the relationship affects Fleet Marine Force units.
