Me and my FH did the exact same thing. Because of our position (I was about to commission and he is enlisted) the only way we would 1) be stationed together and 2) not be called for fraternization was to do the "legal" thing early. To us, it's just paperwork, and didn't even really count. We literally just walked into the judges office, explained our situation, and he signed the paperwork with no vows or words or anything, which is just what we wanted.To me, and is seems to you, there is a difference between marriage and being legally married. A marriage involves a spiritual commitment and is a state of being, and that cannot be contained to legal realms. Heck, there are plenty of people who get "married" for things such as residency and immigration. I'm just saying, they are two different things.In the end, it's between you and your future husband, and no one else. Good luck to you!
