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?

I am in the process of filing my naturalization paperwork.

I am in the process of filing my naturalization paperwork. Questions 25, 26 ask about your criminal history.-Is there a list of crimes that would prevent you from getting a US citizenship?I was charged with something like possession of drug paraphernalia (marijuana pipe) about 15 years ago. I cant remember exactly what the charge was and the court system is not able to provide any paperwork on this since it was expunged off my record. But the form asks to lists even convictions that were expunged. Could this possibly make me ineligible to receive US citizenship?Thank you
