Question
thank you very much for the immediate response. Correct me if im wrong because what i understand is that it's ok for me to get married before I leave. We're planning to get married right after I passed my interview and my medical exam. Will it be consider as a fraud that during the interview session i'll tell the interviewer that I'm single(which is true) but deep inside I have plans of getting married before I leave. Thanks again

As long as you marry before you get approved for a green card, your boyfriend/husband can get a green card with you.

Answer
No - but if you get the visa before marrying, he can not get it with you and would then have to be petitioned by you separately which will take 5 years or more. If you marry before being approved, you can submit paperwork for him and get the visas together.
