Thanks for your reply.
I am afraid that in your circumstances you would not be able to automatically apply for UK citizenship, this is due to you being born outside the UK before 1983 and because your parents were not yet naturalised as UK citizens. Therefore, if you wished to obtain UK citizenship then the only way that this would be possible would be if you were to naturalise as a UK citizen.
As you are probably aware there are residency requirements in this regard. If you are married to a UK citizen then the requirements are that you must have resided in the UK for a continuous period of 3 years with only minimum time spent outside the UK:-
I am afraid that there is absolutely no way around the residence period requirements for this. This is your only option.
