Question
I getting married to a U.S. citizen. I want to know, will i be able to work as soon as i submit my application? Or how soon can i start working?

Answer
Rose,
Once married, you may submit both an adjustment of status and an application for an Employment Authorization Card.  It usually takes three months to have your EAD card approved.  Upon receipt of the EAD card you may work in the US.
Good Luck
