If you two are still married and living in marital union, then you can naturalize 3 years after the greencard was approved. Also, you can file 90 days early.

It depends on whether you remain married or not. If you do, you can file for naturalization 90 days before the third anniversary of having the green card. If you do not, you can file for naturalization 90 days before the fifth anniversary of having the green card.
