Default Road to Citizenship - Spouses of SA citizens have it the worst??

Just wanted to inquire about a question some of my friends were asking about getting naturalized (citizenship) of SA for a foreign spouse, basically my understanding is the following:

Wait until 5 years of marriage to apply for PRP 26B
Wait around 1-2 years for PRP to be issued
After PRP is issued, submit proof that marriage is still in effect before 2 years mark and wait until 5 years on PRP
Apply for citizenship and wait around 1+ year for final ceremony.

This means from marriage registration, it takes at best 12-13 years to obtain citizen status?? Or am i calculating it wrongly?
