Default Filing I-485 atleast 3 months later than I-130

I am in the US on a F1 visa, got married to an US Citizen recently in late 2012. We live in California.

My wife wants to file for my naturalization, but since neither of us work, we need a joint sponsor.

My mother-in-law is qualified to be a joint sponsor, but she's away in Singapore on assignment and will be back in 3 months.
We can obtain the affidavit of support from her then.

My questions are:

1. Is it mandatory to file for my naturalization with concurrent filing of I-130 and I-485?
2. Cannot the I-130 be filed rightaway and while it is "processing", submit the I-485 3 months later?

I am confused as most guides I see on the internet suggest concurrent filing of I-130 and I-485 with all supporting documents at once.
