Yes you can assuming that you are a citizen of the United States. Please see https://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/green-cards-through-marriage
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
A US citizen may apply for a green card for a wife 18 and the US citizen is 17.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours.
