If you're talking about a regular marriage, filing for divorce should have nothing to do with a green card.

I believe you must be married for a minimum of 2 years in order to apply for Permanent Residency.

Nothing, you only have to be married for 3 years before they can revoke a green card for such a matter. And they don't even revoke a green card just for that, they have to prove that the marriage was entered unlawfully and not for the right reasons. The government is not going to force you to stay married to someone just to keep their green card active
