The two years is not a rule, it is more a guideline.
When you are living together for 2 years Migri can safely assume the marriage is not fake. But they might also believe you after 4 months because of your blue eyes.

Spouse or registered partner
A spouse may be granted a residence permit on the basis of family ties. A marriage certificate must be presented as proof of the marriage. The marriage must also be registered in Finland.
Persons of the same sex who have registered their partnership are considered spouses.
I am an EU citizen and have come to Finland to marry a Finn. I have resided in Finland for three months and would like to register. We have been co-habiting for more than three months now. How can we co-habit for the required two years if I cannot reside legally in Finland? I have no job.
You may not register as a family member yet. Instead, you may register on the basis of Union citizenship if you have sufficient means of livelihood, in other words, if you do not need to resort to income support and you have the necessary health insurance cover. Registration is also possible on the basis of financial activity (finding a job). If you leave Finland and return, the three-month right of residence period without registration will begin again.
