My wife is coming here on a K-3 Visa. We have been married for 2+ years. I've looked on the USCIS website for hours but I cannot find any information that explains the differences between being married less that 2 year or more than 2 years at the time of US entry.

Can someone please help?

It won't make any difference on a K-3 at the time of entry. It will make a difference as to which permanent residence card she will get after AOS.

She will get a 10 year unconditional card upon successful AOS.

The difference at entry would only come up if she were entering with the IR1/CR1 immigrant visa. If married over 2 years on entry, the 10 year GC will follow. If married less than 2 years on entry, the conditional 2 year GC will follow. Since she will be entering on the K3 nonimmigrant visa, this won't matter at entry -- only at AOS.

If she returns to her country for the immigrant visa interview, then the same applies regarding entry with IR1/CR1.
