If you think spouses don't sacrifice anything then your very close minded. My wife has times where she has to drop everything and be mom and dad for however long I'm deployed. Trying going to school full time working a full time job and full time mommy and daddy for 9 to 15 months at a time in a totally different state where you know almost nobody. And sometimes you just moved there 2 weeks before your spouse deploys it does happen. So yes they should receive the same "perks" it's the least we could do.
