it's stupid that they can`t get married, but I don`t get why you would voluntary get married, it`s a waste of money and a pain in the ass if you want to get divorced...as most people do

Changing it would go against the general interest of the existing force.. Why do that now?
Because it's the right thing to do.
The USA used to have a racially segregated military, right? No doubt there was opposition to desegregation. No doubt people thought it would create unnecessary conflict within the military. So why did they do it?
Besides, the conflict didn`t occur in other countries when DADT was repealed. It`s by no means certain it would occur in the USA military. Opposition within the military is no indicator - there was majority opposition within the UK military as well. Then it happened and soldiers reacted rationally to the known rather than irrationally to the unknown, so it was a non-issue.
