The couple is 13 years apart and the man is of illegal status. Will there be any complications in the process of trying to get married? Also let's say the girl is trying to get a legal status for her parents, will her getting married affect that as well?
They can get married but applying for a green card may be a bit complicated. If she sponsors her parents too she will have to prove that she can support them and her husband. If not she will have to get a joint sponsor to show sufficient income to support everyone.

My wife and I (US citizen) applied last fall in November, and we fear due to Covid-19 we could see a delay of 3-5 additional months of waiting. One of our solutions was whether it was possible for her to apply for university in the US and live on a F-1 visa while awaiting her green card? Does... Read more »
I would just wait. An F-1 is a non-immigrant visa and you have an immgrant visa pending. If there are delays, so be it. Schools may not even be in session for another 6 months. Be patient and wait for the I-130 to process.
