Am I eligible to apply for Citizenship if I have been married for 4 yrs or do i also need to have the green card for 3 yrs, i got my green card through marriage and i am still married to my husband
You are not eligible at this time. You must wait until you have been a lawful permanent resident for 3 years, and you must prove that you are still married to the same US citizen at the time that you apply for citizenship.

Read INA 319. You have to be LPR, at a minimum of 2 years and 9 months. That besides the myriad of other eligibility preconditions.

To apply for citizenship based on marriage, you have to be an LPR for at least 3 years. The application may be filed 2 years and 9 months from your LPR status, and not a day sooner.
