Hi All: Two year waiting peiod-Spouse to Permanent Visa

Hi All,

Currently, Iam on spouse visa (subclass 309) residing in Australia with my husband, who is an Australian citizen. I have been in a relationship with my husband for more than 4 years(long distance - He was in Australia studying and I was in India working) prior to my lodging of application for spouse subclass 309 visa .
I am having trouble in finding a suitable job in my field here as most of the employers ask for Permanent Residency or Australian citizenship. As per the immigration website ,It is mentioned that:-
In most cases, permanent residence cannot be granted less than 2 years from when you lodge your application. You may, however, be granted a permanent visa without having to fulfil the usual two-year waiting period if:
at the time you apply, you have been in a partner relationship with your partner for 3 years or more, or 2 years or more if you and your partner have a dependent child of your relationship.

Since I have been in a long term relationship with my partner at the time I applied for the initial subclass 309, Can I now apply for permanent residency visa without having to fulfil the usual 2 year waiting period?
