    Where do you want to register it? It is not necessary to register a marriage in the U.S. A marriage in any foreign country is accepted in the U.S. states as long as it was done according to the law of the country in which the marriage was contracted.

      I wish to inform you that if your marriage is performed under laws of India or Nigeria then it will be recognized in USA provided it does not violate US laws. In this regard for immigration purpose your spouse will have to file a Petition for an Alien Spouse of a U.S. Citizen and after that you may go to USA along with your spouse. In this regard as your spouse is living in Nigeria thus she must maintain a domicile in USA and further for affidavit of support also your wife domicile will be taken into consideration. As at present she is in Nigeria thus can can file Forms I-130 by mail with the USCIS Chicago Lockbox.
