I-485/EAD Question/advice

Hi, I am looking to see if anyone has been in this scenario and/or advice.

I am a US citizen, my partner is from the UK. We dated online 10 years ago, broke up after a year or 2, both had other serious relationships and have since rekindled things in the past few months. In the past 10 years my partner has since moved to the US and completed a bachelor's on an F1 Visa and then went the STEM opt route. His visa expires in February 2022.

We do have a legitimate relationship. We would like to marry within the next 6 months or so, but we worry about timing of filing the I-485 and a lack of sufficient evidence. We have no problem with providing evidence, but the vast majority of our evidence will have been less than one year old and we suspect USCIS won't be interested in past chat logs online, etc. We also worry about my partner being unable to work while we will likely need to wait for our case to be reviewed, likely extending past the date his visa expires. I know you can get an EAD, but we are assuming we will likely be called back for a 2nd interview due to our lack of long term evidence. Can the EAD be not given due to lack of evidence before being interviewed? Can it be revoked or not renewed if we are called back for a 2nd interview? Has anyone else been in a situation in which they have filed the I-485 and concurrent paperwork with having been together less than 1 year and if so, what was the outcome? Does anyone have any advice? We really do love each other and are just living with so much anxiety and dread right now. We just don't want to be apart, but we also do not feel we can afford to live on one income without having my partner work. He also has a decent job in STEM and we don't want him to lose that.
