Regulations as to Marriage more favourable to Morals at Chelsea than at Greenwich
One arrangement at is more favourable to morals than at . The old men here may marry after their admission into College; and, although their wives cannot be received within the building, they may yet live close around it, and the old men are not forbidden from taking home a portion of their generous allowance of food, that their wives may share it with them; for the system of dining in mess, as at , is not pursued at . Each pensioner at has a separate berth, in which he takes his meals. Nor are the old men forbidden, at times, at least, from sleeping out of the College, when married. There is, nevertheless, a large-it is feared a very large-amount of immorality, even at , in the old men's connexion with women. Their previous habits, as soldiers, in this respect, have been bad.
