Think u have to live at least 2 or 3 of the 5 years to get citizenship.
But isnt the whole reason for applying for p/r is because u want to live there??

A PR visa is usually valid for 5 years. You have to live for atleast 2 out of those 5 years to get a Resident Return Visa after expiery of your initial PR visa. For Citizenship you need to satisfy following conditions :
  • You must have been living in Australia on a valid Australian visa for 4 years immediately before applying, including 1 year as a permanent resident, and
  • You must not have been absent from Australia for more than 1 year during the 4 year period, including no more than 90 days in the year immediately before applying.

Reference : Australian Citizenship – Changes to the citizenship residence requirement on 1 July 2010

If your spouse is Australian citizen, then immigration may consider time spent outside Australia with Australian citizen spouse as time spent in Australia. "may" is the keyword. You will be better off doing some additional research.

The Ministerial discretion for citizenship also have some criteria, if you have spent atleast one year in Australia and you are living with your Australian spouse then you have better chances to get approved. Still every case is different. Do your research... Hire a good lawyer as you need to prepare a compelling case....
Australian Citizenship – Variation to the residence requirement

Ministerial Discretion is actually my hope as well...
