Spouse of an EU citizen (who is non-EU) reunification


I know this question has been asked a lot. But we are in a slight dilemma.
I am an Italian citizen who has really never lived in Italy and have an American wife.

We jointly applied for our permits (under reunification) about 4 months ago. We decided to come to Geneva to tour around Europe for a while before I start working. Due to some delays I only JUST got my B permit. However, when talking to the cantonal office they stated that my wife's permit would take a 'few more months'. My wife came here with her US passport (as a tourist) expecting our paperwork to be done.

At this point what are our options? Would she have to leave the country? Could I get dual apartments in France and Switzerland and have her stay there?
