If you need to check out any US visas, I recommend visajourney.com - the people over there are wicked smart.

Thanks so much everyone. Wanderer, you are right! He knows all about paperwork and red tape and such so ultimately if its best to get married here because of that he will be the best to understand the necessity.

I guess I'm seeing there are two options:
1. Wait for his discharge papers (I saw the Partner visa needed evidence of his discharge) and apply for a PMV 300. Get married here. Live together for a while, gatehr the evidence as per the booklet and apply for partner 820/801 after 6 months. Its neater and there will be no need for bridging visas and worry associated with expiring visas, but it will take more time. His discharge will be in June 2012 but who knows when the paperwork will be released.

2. Get married in the US. Have him apply for a WHV 462 (he meets the criteria). Live together for 6 months. Gather the evidence as set out in Booklet 1 and apply for a Onshore Partner 820/801. Since processing times are > 6 months we will need to apply for a bridging visa?? because the 462 will likely expire before the Partner visa is processed.

I think you are all correct, we should take some time to mull over the information. There's a lot to get our heads around. But our options are a little more clear now. Thanks again. I'm sure I will be back in the near future

Just a little simple addition and if getting in over there to marry and he using the 462 for Oz and there is no NFS, then when applying for the onshore partner visa a bridging visa is automatically put in place to commence when the 462 expires, no additional application required.
