No, it does not.

Marrying a US citizen never automatically makes you a citizen- however, it does speed up the process if you are trying to naturalize. Normally, a legal resident has to wait 5 years before they can apply for US citizenship; if a legal resident marries a US citizen, this is shortened to 3 years.

That depends on where you settle in. If you settle into a place that would make you a citizen, then you're a citizen. If you settle into a place that wouldn't make you a citizen, then you're not a citizen. If you are asking if you marry an illegal immigrant then they wouldn't be deported. If fact its their ticket to the USA. If you are a foreigner and have a child here that child no matter your citizenship is a US citizen. Its why "they" hop the border and have kids. The mother then has access to the US because the child is a citizen. If you're short on cash, marry one. Sometimes they'll pay you.

Sometimes. A US citizen can marry anybody he/she likes. If a US citizen marries a UK citizen, that alone will not entitle him/her to UK citizenship. The US Citizen will stand to lose the US citizenship if he/she applies to get naturalized as a US citizen. UK citizenship can be acquired sometimes by descent.


Anyone can marry a US citizen, green card or not. The marriage does not automatically give any special privileges to the newly married person. The US citizen can petition for you to be permitted to apply for residency, etc. It is not necessary to be a green card holder to marry a US Citizen. It is important to stay in the US legally with proper immigration papers in order to marry a US citizen.


No, it doesn't make them a citizen if they marry one. I am a German citizen with a permanent resident green card and married a solider. It didn't make me a US citizen like most people would think. A person in this situation still has to wait for 5 years in Permanent Resident status and then apply for citizenship.


yes, if you become a citizen of ANTARTICA and you also have to marry your mom.


There are many people who can marry a US citizen. Marriage to a US citizen happens with many other US citizens.
