I would consult an Immigration attorney. It is illegal for someone to get married for the sole purpose of gaining US citizenship. If you have been married less than two years there is a good chance that the person could be deported if the marriage is dissolved.

How do you get over your spouse's relationship history?

If you feel you have to be a detective to get any bad or good views on your spouse then there is something very wrong with your relationship.

What should you do if you suspect your spouse only married you to get a green card?

You should ask him/her straight up. Explain to your spouse the doubts and fears your having. If you have a healthy relationship, he/she should be somewhat understanding. Tell him/her that you don't feel comfortable applying for the greencard at this time, but would like to wait a few years. If he/she becomes extremely angry or agitated by your suggestion, then you will know that he/she has an interest besides just you. I am married to someone who will eventually get a greencard out of our marriage. We have a good relationship, but even I have had a doubt or two. We waited a year before filing any paperwork for my spouse's greencard. When I felt those slight tinges of doubt, my spouse was very understanding and reassured me that he would have married me no matter what citizenship I had
