I am a us citizen and am marrying a Canadian. He owns businesses in Canada and I own businesses in the US. Neither of us will need the ability to work in the others country. What do we need to do? Is there anything we need to do before we get married? Will there be any travel issues as he travels here every 3 weeks right now.

You don't have to doo anything if you both want to continue with your businesses in your countries.

However if your Canadian spouse want to come to US, then you can get married and start I-130 process with USCIS. Check this link. http://www.visajourney.com/faq/k1faq.htm

Question is which country you guys want to live in?

GC is not only for working, but that is for also living legally in US. If he want to move to US then yes you will have to apply for GC and while the application is in the process there could be some difficulty in traveling.

Once he has the GC traveling is not an issue.

Travel difficulties depend on when the "move" occurs in relation to the marriage. If the move is delayed until a spouse visa process is complete, there are no travel issues that can't be easily overcome. That's also the least complicated and most kosher way of doing it.

Right now the couple only has visitor privileges to the other's country of residence. If residences are maintained in both countries, there's probably no real issue. I would consult with tax experts on the ramifications of either party becoming a legal permanent resident of the other's country.
