Time outside the US

I am completing my N400 as my three years less 90 days as an LPR is tomorrow!! Wow... those days of 129f seem so long ago.

I am on Part 7 (Time Outside the US) and am a little confused. If I am eligible to apply based on three years of marriage to a USC, how do I complete the questions about time outside of the US during the past FIVE years? Do I add in the time before I moved to the US and enter a very large number?

Likewise in question 7B, do I include trips that I took in the two year period before emigrating to the US? Question 7C specifically says "since becoming a lawful permanent resident" but questions A & B do not have this caveat.

Any advice appreciated!

Thanks!

List your trips outside the United States after you became a lawfull permanent resident. For marriage based Green-card holders, they list trips taken in last three years - I did the same. Nothing to complicate here.

Hope that helps
