I am about to start the filing process for my husband. Come the beginning of February my husband and I will have been married two years. Now the I-130 will be handled as for a IR-1 visa after the marriage date is noticed, but once my husband enters the country does he have to wait three years from this date to be eligible for U.S. citizenship ---OR--- does the three years start counting from the marriage date while also meeting a minimum of residing in the U.S. for a year?

Goes from the date of GC issuance!

Mahalo Haole. Just noticed it on the N-400 form:

"I have been a Lawful Permanent Resident of the United States for at least three years, and I have been married to and living with the same U.S. citizen for the last three years, and my spouse has been a U.S. citizen for the last three years."

So THREE is the magic number. Yikes! :D

Actually you can apply 90 days before the 3 year date on the GC.
