Your wife has to file the I-864, regardless of her ability to support you.

You can use a co-sponsor *in addition* to your wife. This person has to be a US citizen and resident in the US. Their income has to be enough for your family *and* their family.

Once you have been married and living with your wife for 6 months you can be the co-sponsor.

I'm not 100% sure but the way I read things, although the person has to be related at
the point of filing, this relationship does not have to have been in existence for
the six months period. So, if you were living together for six months and then got
married, your income would be immediately countable. As I said, this is an
interpretation and I would be happy to see other views on this.

Andy.
