Generally, issuance of the EAD after filing an I-130/I-485 takes about 3-4 months now, but the total time it will take to process your case as a whole depends in part on processing times at the local USCIS district office that will have jurisdiction over your case from the time of interview through adjudication. That, in turn, depends on where the two of you will live together once you get married, Rhode Island or New York, and if the latter, where in New York state you plan to live.
