Thumbs up Can two diplomats in fsp marry each other?

There seems to be an unanswered question in FSP. What if two people who want to join FSP(once they are allocated) decide to marry each other. How will it change things. Can it even Happen? Is it allowed under the Rules

If So,

1- Can they be posted to the same country in Language course and afterwards as 3rd Secretary? Or equivalent

2- What about salary and allowances, perks, Privileges etc breakdown, would both receive their own respective(Independent) shares?

It would be hugely appreciated if any of the senior members and FSP officers or anyone else who seems to have little knowledge about it- Please DECIDE TO REPLY TO THIS OR EVEN SHARE THEIR THOUGHTS OR KNOWLEDG, whatever little they know would be appreciated.

It's a very relevant question. Members of FSP here need to answer this question.

Can they both be posted in the same country and what about divisions of perks and allowances? Like foreign ad entertainment allowances, would that be separately given to each?

Anyone who know about this

Yes, they can marry. For instance, Ambassador (r) Sanaullah and Ambassador (r) Fauzia M. Sana got married once they were allocated to FSP.

Second, they can request the authorities to post them together for linguistic course and subsequent assignments. However, any response to the request (in positive or negative) totally rests with the concerned authority i.e. Foreign Secretary and Personnel Division.

Third, earlier (pre-2000 era), one of the individual from the couple had to leave some sort of perk(s). For instance, both individuals cannot have medical entitlement abroad, children education allowance etc. However, few years ago, i heard that things have changed and now both the individuals get full benefits of the job.

Forgot to mention that after getting allocated in FSP, an individual intending to get married to another FSP Officer need to get goverment's permission to get married.
