US citizenship is the final reward for immigrants who lived in the US for at least half a decade as lawful permanent residents (LPR), always paid their taxes, have a good moral character, and meet other criteria. So the first step for you would be to become a permanent resident. You will need to have your spouse apply for an immigrant visa for you, which first starts with an Affidavit of Support where he or she would have to declare that money to take care of you won't be an issue. If you are not married to a US citizen yet, you'll have to wait until you are. The desire to move to the USA is not enough.
