A second preference petition filed by a permanent resident parent on behalf of an unmarried son or daughter is automatically terminated when the son or daughter marries befor the petitioner becomes a U.S. citizen. After the petitioner naturalizes, he must file a new I-130 petition and the old priority date is lost. I do not understand all of your facts, and I recommend that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can assess your situation and advise you further.
