Assuming you do not apply for a reentry permit before you leave,the maximum stay is 1 year. If you apply for a reentry permitbefore you leave, the maximum stay is 2 years. If …you wish to stay longer than two years, you will need both areentry permit and a returning resident visa. You must apply forthe reentry permit before you depart the US. You don't necessarilyneed to receive it before you leave. If you stay longer than 2 years, there is no guarantee you will beable to get a returning resident visa. Note: your US green card may be taken away if your travelrecord suggests that you reside outside the US more than in the US.So, coming to the US for two weeks every 11 months will at somepoint result in cancellation of your green card and an inability toreturn to the US using the green card.

Also you can use the Form N-470 meanwhile to preserve residence for naturalization process.
The green card which is got as a result of marriage to a green card holder is the conditional one and valid for 2 years. 90 days before it expires the Form I-485 should be use…d to adjust status from conditional status to permanent resident status and a permanent green card valid for 10 years is issued to the applicant. The green card which the alien gets through employer or a relative is valid for 10 years which has to be renewed.

In Green Cards
It depends on how you are applying for green card. The US green card can be applied through family member, employment or marriage. A family member who is already a green card …holder can petition for alien relative using the Form I-130 and once the priority date becomes current the alien can get the visa and enter US as green card holder. Next is through employer who has to petition and green card can be got either with or without labor certification. Lastly after an alien marries a US citizen or green card holder and is petitioned with Form I-130, the alien can adjust status to permanent resident after two years of successful marriage using Form I-485.
