Is it true that married officers during the late 19th century had better prospects of promotion?

n the book Curling's Letters. He makes reference on many occasions how he was over looked when it came to promotion. And he remained single all his life. Of course that may not have been the reason. But good question anyway.

HF, I figure there is a good chance that it's right, as being married they might have been considered as more dependable, as in, less likely to risk tranferring to another unit, as they then had other responsibilities. Just guesswork on my part though.
