Married 2 years before interview

My wife is concerned that she did not receive the forms 156, 156K in her packet 3. I've tried to research this to see why. Is it because we have been married more than 2 years? We have our interview on Oct 11th. Can someone tell me what the differences are on a K-3 visa when we have been married for more than 2 years going into the interview.

Thanks:)

What you are seeing may be 1 of the differences in Packet #3 between a K1 and a K3 application. I would call the Embassy and get clarity. I don't know the answer to that. So, give them a call. Maybe today a VJer will respond with some solid info. But call the Consulate and ask.
