Applying for citizienship and getting married to a non-American
February 8, 2010 6:07 PM Subscribe
I'm applying for citizenship (USA, sending in the forms in the next few days) and also possibly getting married (not to an American) in March. Does this effect my application and/or is it a bad idea?

I've been a permanent resident for about 15 years but finally want to do the citizenship thing (mostly to make travel easier). I'm also planning to get married to a non-american in March. She won't be trying to become an American anytime soon, although it would be useful at some point if she could get a green card to work.
Do I need to note any of this on my application? Could it effect my application? Should I wait to get married until my citizenship gets approved?
Bonus: What's the typical wait time from putting the n-400 form in the mail until having a passport?
