prospective marriage visa(300) or partner(309) when you have a tourist visa?

I;m not sure which of those visas would be the best option

Atm i have a evisitor visa( wich expires on July 1st 2011)
and i've been in Australia 2 time, for 1month the first time and 2.5 months second time
i'm from Romania and my boyfriend was here 2 times also

If we are planning on getting married in August anyway,1) should i still lodge an application for the prosp mar. visa, or should we only apply for the spouse one once we got married?

2) if you apply for a spouse visa once you got married, do you get any kind of bridging visa until a decision has been made, and what exactly does that allow you to do?

If we;re planning on getting married anyway soon, should i apply for a prosp mar. one fisrt, or there isn't much point doing all the paperwork and medicals twice?

3)And in my case, which one would you think would be better, onshore or offshore partner one, considering i dont have the ,,no further stay,, marked on my tourist visa, even though that would mean we;d have to get married little bit sooner than we planned, since my tourist visa expires in July.

I'm also not sure if the partner one is granted easier and quicker if you hold a prospective marriage one, or not.

Thank you

There are a few things you need to consider and first is that for a PMV you need to be outside of the country to apply.
The only real possibility that you seem to have identified yourself is that you would have to marry or get a relationship registration prior to the Evisa expiring but it also seems you need to be travelling out and in again for another three months period if that is part of the eVisa granted.
There can be issues re travelling out and in too often re intent and having the appropriate visa and in a sense of applying for a partner visa and then using an eVisa/ETA, I have addressed that @

The very essential thing that you need to appreciate however is that a RR or getting married will not alone see a partner visa granted and you do need to have other relevant evidence of a relationship as described in Booklet#1 and a read of the sticky thread by el kitten may be well worth your while too.
