What happens if you abandon your illegal immigrant spouse?

Since marriage to a US citizen confers US citizenship upon the spouse, it is not clear how your spouse is an illegal immigrant unless you are also an illegal immigrant (not that you actually said that either of you are living in the US, but that seems to be the most likely interpretation). I also don't know why you are abandoning your spouse instead of getting a divorce. Nothing will necessarily happen; it depends upon what action the abandoned spouse may choose to take.

What happens if a US citizen gets convicted of a crime before their alien spouse gets their green card?

As a US citizen, you can sponsor an alien for U.S. Green Card application for the the immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen, such as your wife. But as a convicted criminal, most likely you are in jail, with little or no income. So it is difficult for you to "sponsor" an alien financially. The USCIS Form I-864 - Affidavit of Support is required for family-sponsored immigration. An affidavit of support is a guarantee to U.S. government that an immigrant will not become a public charge. SO you may need a a co-sponsor for her financial sponsor for Form I-864 if needed.

The interviewing officers can tell at first glance the 'scam' couples and will split you up for individual questioning otherwise it's a fairly simple process if you have no criminal convictions and the alien is here legally The US citizen spouse can no longer sponsor a non citizen spouse if he or she entered the country illegally. The citizen spouse may petition for permanent residency for the non citizen spouse, but the he or she must leave the US and apply through his or her country of origin's consulate office. An illegal immigrant spouse who has been unlawfully present within the US for less than 1 year must leave the US and then submit a 1-601 waiver application.

Is it illegal to marry another man here in US even if you don't have residency card?

This is a strangely worded question. It sounds like you are asking if it's illegal for one man to marry another man if the first man doesn't have a "green card". The answer is- it depends on the state. Same sex marriage is legal in only a few states, like New York, Massachusetts, and Iowa. In all other states it's illegal. If you were asking if it's illegal to marry an "illegal immigrant"- no, it is not. However, marrying an illegal immigrant has its risks... the immigrant spouse runs the risk of being arrested and deported, meaning your new spouse would be jailed for a while and eventually sent back to their home country.
