How does the whole US Citizen – Marriage – Citizenship thing work?? Are there stipulations? What kind?

Question by Bernard Jean-Pierre: How does the whole US Citizen – Marriage – Citizenship thing work?? Are there stipulations? What kind?
For example:
Person A is a natural born American Citizen and wants to marry Person B a person from (let’s say) Japan. How does this work? Can they simply be married, or does each country have to agree on its terms of Marriage?? If Person A marries Person B, does Person B automatically become a US Citizen as well? How does the Marriage Visa thing work? When would it be applicable? Does Sex (of the person) matter? For example, If an American Man marries a Australian Woman or vice versa??
Thanks for any and all answers to the questions above.

Ask for information from the “Immigration & Naturalization” services (:

Or, read their Web-site/s.

From what I understand, it is pretty complicated.
They –with good reason– became quite suspicious of people only marrying to get into the USA—So they have made it much tougher to get approved.

(Some US citizens accepted payment to marry such ones, & then they would divorce, & that person would marry someone else from outside the USA.)

I’m quite sure a person has to apply for citizenship, even if married to a US citizen. But, being married to a US citizen does not guarantee that their application will be approved.
