Re: “Can Air Force Academy cadets become parents while enrolled? Apparently so.

Love how all the arm-chair quarterbacks get on here to post and yet know nothing about the honor code nor "the rules" at the Academy. First, the honor code was not broken. He did not lie, (cheat nor steal) about the relationship. In fact he was quite open about it. He did not lie about the pregnancy nor the fact that he is the father. NO HONOR CODE VIOLATIONS. In fact, he is doing the honorable thing -- marrying the young lady after he graduates. Should that not be applauded given how many absentee fathers there are in this country?

As for the rules - there are no rules against having relationships. There is a rule about no sex in the dorms, but he didn't break that one. Cadets are not allowed to have dependent, true. He must give up parental rights of this child - which he can later get back after graduation. This is not new, other cadets have had to do this. This is NOT a special treatment.

Pregnant cadets - a medical turnback, allowing the young lady to go home and have the baby, is an option. The cadets parents usually take guardianship of the baby, the cadet gives up her parental rights and can return to finish her education. As with the male cadets, she can get her parental rights reinstated after graduation. I personally do not see any special bias towards men except those caused by biology.
