Well from the perspective of the NEW IDW GI JOE.. Duke and I'm assuming all the other Joes have to basically give up their previous lives entirely.
As far as I can guess so far it seems the govt basically fakes their deaths and they are cut off from any previous family or relationships.
So when you officially don't exist it would make it pretty hard to have a husband, wife, or kids that were not in GI Joe.
I don't think the 80's Joe stories were quite that extreme but you get the idea. Even if it wasn't forbidden, how could you possibly juggle something like that.

What Zartanman said about the new IDW run is correct. The Joes all had to "die" before joining the Joe team. So there won't be any outside relationships.
Now, a potential story could be that a loved one somehow catches sight of the Joe.
Grunt only got married AFTER he retired from the Joes. He did rejoin the Joes (during DDP) when they had a mass call for the old members, and did so to better protect his family.
Stalker has a wife and step-son. During America's Elite, they were relocated to Yellowstone to be close to the Rock.
Gen. Colton is married to Jane.
Hawk had a girl before he gave her up for the Joes.
Flint and Lady Jaye only got married after the Joes disbanded. In a real military unit, married couples aren't allowed to serve in the same unit together.
I know how tough military life is on marriages, can't even imagine what being in a Special Forces unit would do to a marriage/relationship. Especially one as covert as the Joes.
Typically married couples live in housing on base. I know alot of married military families that have fallen apart. Infildelity is pretty rampant. The military frowns hardcore on infildelity, but it happens alot.

Very true about rampant infidelity. Divorce rates are really high; in my squad we had four married guys. me and one other guy stayed married after deployment, the other 2 got divorced as soon as we got back.
Even non special forces military like myself have it tough, and to keep it together the spouse and family gotta be REALLY understanding.
My daughter was born while I was serving a year in Korea, I missed her first birthday because of pre-deployment training two months ago, and I'll miss her 2nd birthday while I'm deployed.

IMO, from a practical writing perspective, not much of the Joes' home lives were depicted on the cartoon or in the comics primarily because they were geared towards a younger set as an action-oriented toy-based property, so anything beyond that premise was probably not high on the editor's list of things the writer should be writing about.
But it can also be easily rationalized that many men and women with full-time careers in the active military would have some difficulty finding time to have a family or even maintain long-term normative romantic relationships. Two of the three people I consider to be close friends who serve in the US military are now divorced (both of them citing the stress of frequent deployments as the main culprit), although one has remarried, and has made the difficult decision to bring his family to join him overseas to avoid a repeat of his last marriage.

You guys look into the writing far to deeply. The cartoon and comic were just commercials
Guys you gotta support G.I. Joe or else we won't have G.I. Joe on the shelves and they haven't released Spaceshot. We can't have an anniversary line without Spaceshot!

I mean seriously, watch "The MASS Device" and tell me they're not setting Duke up for a threesome with Scarlett and the slavegirl....

there is nothing worse in G.I. Joe than the relationships. SE's and Scarlett I can tolerate, Flint and LJ is pushing it, but when DD started Shipwreck and CG, that was going too far.
