if one a spouse become a us citizen after 3yrs marriage to us citizen does getting divorced within 6 months of naturalization cause any implications for recently naturalized wife ? If divorce is uncontested based on irreconcilable differences 4 months after naturalization will the divorce say marriage has been broken for last 6 months to be on irreconcilable differences ?
Don’t worry on the divorce impact on your Citizenship. As long as the marriage was valid and not a sham you have nothing to worry about.

If she already received her naturalization certificate, then it should not be an issue. If she has not received her naturalization certificate, then she might become ineligible to naturalize based on three years. Based on the information you provided, I am not sure whether she is naturalizing or has already taken the oath (and received her certificate).
