My husband didnt want me to be a citizen because what he told me is if he retired he wants to moved in the philippines and live there... 8 more years before he retired, And now i am just processing my change of status stuffs. My question is, What if that 2 year conditional stay expired, do i need to go back to my country already? Can i go back to the US ? what do you think guys? Do you think he can get his pension if he moved to the philippines and be a Philippine citizen?

There is no law that says you must become a US Citizen.

You will have to file to 'remove conditions' 90 days before your 2 year GC expires in order to stay in status.

His pension status is not an immigration related question so I can't help you with that.

If you move back to the Philippines and make that your domicile you will abandon your permanent residence in the U.S. and will again require a visa to visit the U.S.

There are some rules on the amount of property you can own in the Philippines if you acquire U.S. citizenship and then reacquire Philippine citizenship, but he would still be able to get a 13A resident visa for the Philippines based on his marriage to you.

It you get U.S. citizenship and then reacquire Philippine citizenship, you will be able to travel freely to either country.
