A fiance visa allows you to sponsor a fiance to come to the U.S. to marry you here. A requirement of this visa is that you show you have met your fiance in person at least once in the last two years. There is otherwise no specific amount of time you have to have spent together, but you will have to prove that your relationship is in good faith, in other words that you are not marrying just to help your fiance immigrate but actually intend to spend your life with him. The less contact you have had, the harder it can be to prove that. I strongly recommend hiring a good immigration lawyer to represent you and your fiance in this process if you decide to go ahead.
Two weeks is okay, you need to show that you have met face-to-face within the last 2 years. Make sure to keep a copy of your itinary and receipts from the time spent there. It is also helpful to have a few pictures of the two of you together doing things while you were together. The less time you have known each other the more evidence you need to prove you are marrying out of love and not for immigration purposes. A good immigration attorney can help you put together the right evidence. Good luck.
