If I recall correctly I believe the stipulations for enlisted are no dating within the same rating chain and if it conflicts with good morale and discipline within the unit. The word preceding 5 is key as well-- "AND". I am an example-leading, line-toting, love-to-mentor chica, but what I do know is that ultimately the heart wants what it wants.
