I know there is a 3 year rule to apply for citizenship, but that is 3 years from having a green card in USA, I am also searching for said article.

Something that big of a change would be all over our sources for immigration news/updates. I haven't found anything.

 

Are you sure it was not the standard "3 years married to a US citizen to file for citizenship" that this information is mistaken for?

I’m trying to find it 😩 

 

from what I can gather by translate this is something that has already been talked about where USCIS has the right to deny a petition if not completed properly without the issuance of a RFE.

 

It further talks about maintaining a marriage for the entire 3 years when applying for citizenship or it will be denied

Yes and then he says you will have to be married for 3 years or they can also deny it which is crazy if it’s true
