After PRP is issued, submit proof that marriage is still in effect before 2 years mark and wait until 5 years on PRP
Apply for citizenship and wait around 1+ year for final ceremony.

This means from marriage registration, it takes at best 12-13 years to obtain citizen status?? Or am i calculating it wrongly?

i reead these is a condition written on my PRif no relationship after 2 years my PR will be canceled
