Yes but it becomes a problem during naturalization. Green card in US is mainly for a person to stay and work in US permanently and so its supposed to be maintained and renewed every 10 years.

New reentry permit is required if the stay is for more than 2 years. Main eligibility criteria for applying for US citizenship is to have stayed in US as a green card holder for minimum 5 years prior to filing the Form N-400.

Your marriage to a green card holder is irrelevant - you must have your own visa to stay in the USA.
