Your partner does not need a de facto visa. If she is your de facto partner she goes on your 189 as a dependent
However if you are currently living at different addresses, and are not married, you may struggle to prove the relationship is ongoing, especially if you have only lived together for 1 year out of 5.
Might be worth speaking to an agent.

Any chance of a wedding in the near future?

Indeed. In fact, even for legally married couples, not living together is something that will need to be properly explained.
