My wife and I are both in the Army, but still in AIT. Army Couple Program is good, got the same assignment! We are not prior service.
I will grad on Oct 02nd and she will grad at the end of November. My report date is November 13th but could change (that’s what I heard so far).
I want to travel at the same time with her, so wait for her to grad and PCS (to Hawaii).
Please what are my options if there are?

Sorry, it's not going to happen. Get used to being split from your spouse and just be happy you two are close together. As a 91F,once you become a SSG it will be almost impossible to get stationed where you want. If your spouse is a 91F, then even worse.
The Army is not going to let you, a fully qualified Soldier, sit around unoccupied for two months because you don't want to travel alone. Go to Hawaii and set up your house so your spouse has a home ready to walk into when she gets there. As opposed to the two of you sitting in lodging for weeks waiting on a house.

You can try to get a further out report date. But I suggest to just get everything ready for your wife. If you are already inprocessed and settled, it makes things easier for your wife.

Agreed. Another thing would you get to pick the furniture (at least in your man cave).
Query: Who's the higher grade - won't mean anything if you're both privates but if she's or you make SPC or even SGT then the quarters should be based on their orders.

Don’t see it happening my friend. Nevertheless, is not that bad of a situation. Go ahead and set up everything for your spouse arrival. Word of advice: don’t get too crazy!!!! Be frugal but enjoy the islands.
