Yes, 8-12 months is about right for the US right now.

Being married is not enough for a spouse visa. You really need to be sharing households, expenses, etc. Have you not lived together at all? That may be a problem. Professional migration agents usually recommend *at least* three months of living together for married couples applying for the spouse visa so you can accumulate enough evidence of living together and shared finances.

Three months is really not long to expect a married couple to live together after marriage. You might want to talk to a migration agent. It may be that DIBP are more lenient given their knowledge of the arranged marriages of India. I just wouldn't be risking it. You could always consider a three-month holiday together before applying.
