marriage to a permanent resident

I am a Permanent Resident (Green Card).

I have 2 questions.

If I get married to a person on a H1-B Visa, what kind of status can she be converted to? Can she get a green card through the marriage. Would she have to leave the country or can she continue to keep her job? This is a real relationship and we have been dating for over 2 years, however, she is fearful of a layoff and we are wondering what our options are.

Next question... kind of early to ask this question, however, when my green card expires in 2008, what are my options? Do I have to make a decision at that point on taking up US citizenship?

Thank you very much for your time and attention.
