You don't just get a green card. You still have to apply for a visa in order to stay in the United States.
If you get married overseas there are a few different visa options. If the American citizen has been living in the foreign country for over 6 months, they can apply for an I-130 visa for their spouse through direct consular filing, and the spouse can be brought to the U.S. permanently in as little as three months. It doesn't matter how long they have been married except that there is different paperwork and processes for those who have been married for more or less than two years. I brought my foreign husband to America, however, after having only been married for a month and a half since I qualified for Direct Consular Filing. Typically, if you do not qualify for DCF, the processing for a visa can take as long as 6 to 8 months and necessitate time apart for the fiances/spouses.
