I'm sure most would be wives of enlisted seeking a job but up to the rank of sergeant, no one gets there quickly, the pay is barely enough to support a couple much less a kid or two. There are a lot of factors and options with housing and such but yes, most need a 2nd income to stay close to the poverty level. They aren't getting rich.
