after an CO interwiew for spouse visa

I am very happy to come on this forum that helps us a lot and where we can share our experiences
I'm French and I am married to an Australian citizen. I filed my application for spouse visa in Berlin in September 2010. I waited two months before a CO assigned
we have all the evidence of our common life (bills, photos, envelopes with our names, marriage certificate, lease agreement to both our names,........). I have a job available in Australia, my husband made a statement in which he confirmed to take care of myself and not to seek government assistance.
Today I had a telephone interwiew with my CO. questions already answered on the forms but I think she wanted to be sure of dates and compare what we said and what I was saying. She asks me if I got married just to get a visa for Australia! I told him that I married for love and not for a visa!

At the end of the interview she told me to wait (again! this is that I wait 6 months and I'm lucky because I come from a country with low risk but I think people who come from a high risk country .....) to give his answer.
I told him I'd like to go home quickly because I have a job lined up and I want to start quickly (bad point for me in France I am unemployed)
do you think of having a guaranteed job in Australia (I gave the letter to my future employer for proof). My husband has a job, I have guaranteed work, we have a home ...... makes me get my visa?
I am very nervous because I do not know how the final decision will be taken: on the application and documents submitted, or only on the appreciation of my CO and we talked for the Interwiew?

Have you submitted your application to Berlin and have you been in the same situation as me?
Thank you

There have not been huge numbers using the Berlin office Fraussie and interviews can be more of a formality for most people and it is rather standard for them to ask mostly questions that are already answered in an application.
By waiting it will hopefully be a relatively short wait before you get an email with good advice and that could be as soon as a couple of weeks.
