A: Immigration status does not affect whether or not two people can get married. The normal marriage requirements will still apply -- you can't be married to someone else, you have to be old enough to get married, etc. However, if the question you are asking is can the green card holder sponsor the international student for a green card if they get married, the answer is probably yes, depending on their circumstances.
