This one seems too easy.
Ask them which regulation lets them know that hers will change to match yours. Also ask them to give you the paragraph and all that says this so that you don't have to read the entire reg to see where they got their info.
NOW... logic dictates that they will keep her 6 months past her 'NORMAL' rotation time due to the costs associated with a PCS move from overseas. Think about it. If a PCS move to Hawaii costs the Government an average of $30,000 (just for mathematics sake), and you cut your tour short by 6 months (1/6th of your time expectation), the government will 'lose' $5,000 on your tour, as well as having to send a replacement for your job 6 months earlier than expected.
P.S. - why would you want to leave Hawaii 6 months early? In the light of a 'career', 6 months is nothing.
My advice - SUCK IT UP, SUNSHINE!

Been retired for a while, but in the past extending one tour to meet the other's DEROS was not an issue. Saw more than a few do it in Korea and the RPI. Knew of one couple in Korea that tried to shorten his up to meet hers and it was denied. But assigmnets was more than happy to extend hers to meet his.
