She will still need to be sponsored by the spouse (who is an American Citizen) and apply for residency first. Once permanent residency is granted, she has to wait (I believe it's approximately two years) to apply for citizenship.

If a us citizen married a Mexican citizen in Mexico can the us citizen live in Mexico as a tourist if yes for how long?

I married a Mexican citizen in Mexico and I am a US citizen, and we currently live in Mexico. You can only live in Mexico for the time they alloted on your white paper when you entered the country, usually it is 90-180 days. During that time you should apply for a FM2 at the immigration office. An FM2 is a visa that allows you to live in Mexico. You would qualify for it because you are married to a Mexican citizen. An FM2 is good for as long as you want provided you renew it every year and you can become a citizen after having it for 2 years. FM2 allows you do live and participate as a Mexican citizen would. I currenlty have an FM3, which is a working visa. I got it through my employer. If you want to work in Mexico you could get an FM3 and that would also allow you to stay in Mexico, but it needs to be renewed every year. Good luck and I hope that this helps a little.

You are Mexican what do you have to do to marry to a us citizen?

If you are already in the United States, the fact that you are a Mexican citizen does not make it any more difficult for you to get married. You will follow the same procedure as anyone else and the laws of the U.S. state in which you are getting married will dictate the requirements. Marrying a U.S. citizen will not, however, automatically change your immigration status. It will create a path to citizenship, but it is by no means automatic. If you are in Mexico and you want to marry an American, you can obtain a civil marriage according to the laws of the Mexican state in which you live. Or, your American fiance(e) can apply for a visa for you to come to the United States for the purpose of getting married.
