Actually I've been reading around the forums for a good few years and it is quite possible to get an intended bride a visa without having lived together if you are from a culture where living together before marriage is forbidden.
Perhaps if you read around a little more yourself or spoke with a Registered Migration Agent (not one of the charlatans you find across Asia) you would know that.

All my posts to the best of my knowledge but should not be used to substitute professional advice
