Total of 180 days, no matter if it's ten 18-day trips or one 180-day trip.

I'd be careful. A 5-month trip can easily become a big pain in the neck when you apply.

Have to read the N-400 instructions, the M-476 manual, and now they added four supplements in the N-400 form site. Do say average time to fill out the N-400 is six hours plus gathering the evidence, but that doesn't include all that downloading, printing, and reading, with marriage, more like 30 hours with still plenty of questions.
