Temporary partner visa or student visa!?

What do you think..I'd appreciate all inputs..maybe some of you might even be in the same boat.
My timeline:
- Married my Australian wife in May 2020.
(Left to US shortly after)
- Returned to Australia in October 2021 on a Visitor Visa 600 (Tourist Stream) and that expires in APRIL
- When I arrived I thought my wife and I would leave to the US together by April when my visa expires, BUT NOW life happens and we'll be together in Australia until at least the beginning of 2022....
SOO...what can I do?
If I go the partner visa route...
What I understand about traveling with the partner visa, my BVA ends when I leave the country. I can get a BVB bur we dont know when we'll be back to Australia again once we leave. It might be even a few years!!! We're heading to the US to look for homes and go to school.. And I understand that I need a valid visa to enter back in. SO, a big question I have is if I can get some sort of visitor visa or tourist visa to just get back in and then will the processing of my temporary 820 visa resume!?
The other option I guess is to totally scrap the idea of a partner visa (for now) and just pay for a student visa that would allow me to stay through to 2022. That option seems depressing though because the cost is basically the same as a partner visa and I for sure will do the partner visa at some point either way‐‐now or down the line!
Any comments would be so highly appreciated. Im very new to this forum and thought I'd pose my question as a new topic. Thanks, peace, and health!!

but it seems like bridging visa Bs are good for overseas trips with a return date. We have no idea when we'll be back. We might even be looking for a house overseas. Do you know if these BVBs permit that sort of trip?
