If you wish to marry, you should marry. I would recommend hiring an attorney to guide you through the process.
Legal disclaimer: The statement above is general in nature, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
You can get married at this point but should attend school and apply for a green card a little later down the road. However, once married you should be prepared to not leave the US until you filed for adjustment and obtained a travel document.
You are prudent to be concerned about perceived misuse of the student visa, although it is possible to have a change of plans and intent. Work with an immigration attorney to help prepare the most compelling green card case. Good luck.

You are right that there can be the appearance of visa fraud since you met BEFORE you came to the US. However, a competent attorney can prepare your application and supporting documents, as well as prepare you for interview so as to maximize your chances for success.
