My girlfriend is Chinese, overstayed her tourist visa, now

My girlfriend is Chinese, overstayed her tourist visa, now has political asylum pending. She has SS# ***** social security card. So she is legal and can stay till asylum resolves. Question - if we got married would that hurt her. The issue is I am 51, been married 4 times. She is 37 married once (actually twice, but to the same man). she is married now, and they filed asylum together as a family. The fear is that a marriage to me would not appear legit (even though it is and we can prove it in the traditional ways) but my 4 prior marriages dont help. Any thoughts?

Hello,I have a question. I got married on January 13th 2012. My husband just confessed me that he was married before me and that his divorce has a stamp of 2011 dec 30. But the divorce letter came out by mail to him on 2nd of march 2012 which I thought no the date for the divorce to become finalized. How is this can affect my immigration status. I'm on the 10 year green card and applied for my citizenship. Obviously on the I-400 form I left it blank the section that asks about my husband previous marriage because he hidden from me until just now.
