My family found out that one of our relatives married a woman from Mexico who was undocumented and we just found out that she had purchased a social security card (with her name on it somehow). Is there marriage still legal?
The marriage is still valid. For marriage purposes it is irrelevant what an individual's immigration status is or whether or not their social security card is valid. Remember, the social security card is a document that ,while often used for identification, is meant for the social security administration. That has nothing to do with marriage.
Your relative and his wife should see an immigration attorney to see if their is an option for her to adjust her immigration status and then obtain a valid social security card.
