The relationship requirement for a spouse visa from Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules is as follows:
E-ECP.2.1. The applicant’s partner must be-
(a) a British Citizen in the UK, subject to paragraph GEN.1.3.(c); or
(b) present and settled in the UK, subject to paragraph GEN.1.3.(b); or
(c) in the UK with refugee leave or with humanitarian protection.
If you satisfy one of those, you would be eligible to to bring a spouse/partner to the UK subject to meeting all of the other requirements for the visa (financial, relationship, English language, etc.) outlined in the link below (Section E-ECP) for entry clearance.

I'm just a guy on the Internet who immigrated to the UK. My opinions are based on my experience and interpretation of the immigration rules and should not be considered legal or immigration advice; your mileage may vary.

Thanks a lot!
One more question, As I can’t travel back to my home country. If I get married over phone/internet or in a third country, would I still be able to sponsor my spouse.
Regards

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.
