Youd be able to stay only 30 days then youd have to leave the country.

I would "assume" the big concern is will he be able to support both of you at his current pay scale. No commander wants their soldiers to be set up for a financial disaster I would recommend that you guys make a budget and and figure out a financial plan that would require disclosing some personal information a little but I believe you are asking the command to make an exception so you need to provide them with the facts as to why you should get it and no one else at that rank. Age may play a little part but if your budget doesn't balance the commander would be a fool to approve it. So you need to provide them with the tools to make a favorable decision.
There is some truth to what Thaiguy said, statistically the lower ranks E4 and below have the most DUI's, accidents, deaths, alcohol related issues, crimes etc. One reason is there is so many of them but mostly it's related to maturity. All of the weekend safety briefings are geared towards that group.
