Yes! Actually, it can be a little bit invasive. We had to show our messages to the immigration officer to prove we were able to communicate.
We also had to show pictures and social media posts from when we were dating and photos from our wedding and honeymoon. Then, they came to our house to make sure we were actually living together. They went through our closet and fridge a bit too.
Every year when I renew my visa they do the same, but not as thoroughly.
I don’t think the requirements are very strict for the timing of the relationship. I know a few people who were in a relationship for less than a year before getting married and getting a spouse visa. Honestly, a lot is left up to the interpretation of the individual immigration officer you are dealing with
