Does your spouse have PR, what is your immigration status in this country presently - I note you say "permanent residence" but do you actually mean "residence permit"? They are different things.
Okay, that sounds as if you have an EEA family permit. It should when it runs from and two and it should be for 5 years.
If you are still here and married when the 5 year period runs and your wife is in the UK exercising her treaty rights (living, working in the UK) then you can apply for naturalisation once the period expires.
You will have to apply using form AN1, once naturlised you can then apply for a UK passport.
