The short answer is yes. You can even come to be "illegal" itself, as marrying someone with the sole purpose of circumventing the immigration laws is a federal crime. There is a method legal for a citizen to marry a non-citizen, but it requires that you follow a particular procedure. If you want to marry a non-citizen, you must contact the Department of Immigration for details on how to proceed; the exact steps depend on where you're getting married and what the current visa status of non-citizen. In any case, marrying someone does not automatically make them a citizen. Makes you eligible for the status of a conditional permanent resident, if you have been married for less than two years).
