What are the rules of marrying someone in the United States if the other person does not have citizenship yet?
You can get married, however there are immigration laws that govern the immigrants re-entry to the US if immigrant leaves until US Residency is established. A re-entry permit MUST be obtained BEFORE immigrant leaves the US prior to obtaining US Residency.
No, marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically confer citizenship nor permanent resident status for the alien spouse, the required USCIS procedures must be followed. The interested party might wish to consult the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services website for more information, http://www.uscis.gov
There are not grounds for filing a civil suit in such a situation. In addition, a foreign national whether illegal or not does become a citizen by marrying an American citizen, nor are they guaranteed permanent resident status.

If a woman who is not a United States citizen gives birth in the United States would this entitle her and her child both with United States citizenship?
If a person holding a US residency card marries a US citizen does that qualify them for US citizenship?
pretty sure it does No, marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically confer permanent residence status nor the assurance of being granted citizenship to a foreign national. It will change the priority level assigned to the foreign spouse's application for citizenship. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov
The process for marrying is the same for everyone in the United States, regardless of immigration status or citizenship. You show id (foreign passport is okay), pay a fee, apply for a marriage license, have a ceremony before an officiant (for example, a judge) and then the clerk issues a certificate of marriage.
They can't, marrying a U.S. citizen no longer confers automatic citizenship nor permanent residence status, the alien spouse must apply for citizenship or residence status as required by USCIS regulations.

Marriage and naturalization Although the United States does not recognize dual citizenship status officially, it does not prohibit it either.

If a United States Citizen marries in the United States in January 2009 to an immigrant from the Philippines is she now considered to be a United States Citizen?
No, she is not. She will be allowed to remain in the US with her spouse and children, but she will have to apply for citizenship separate from her marriage. The US citizen REMAINS a US citizen. The immigrant remains an immigrant and must follow the legal path to resident immigrant status, and from there to citizenship. Marriage is not a free pass to residency or citizenship.
This issue is a "Catch-22" in that there are not laws prohibiting a illegal foreign national from marrying a U.S. citizen.

When you marry an illegal alien in Alabama, you give up your US citizenship and become a citizen of your new spouse's country.

Also…
The citizen will have to follow through with the application, but it would be possible. The marriage would have to be real and subject to possible investigation. Disregarding the citizenship issue, you may want to evaluate the stability of your intended to be certain that they are "on the up and up."
