DV 2023 applying under spouses country of birth?


My wife entered the lottery last year and didn’t get it. I was born in an ineligible country so count apply myself. She already planned to enter this year but I noticed in the guidelines i can enter using my spouses country of birth. Is this true?

We’re not legally married as in we had our own small function but never properly registered it. I understand the US only accepts registered marriages. We were thinking of doing courthouse marriage and applying for the certificate however where I live I need to provide notification for intent to marry 30 days prior and then do a courthouse wedding and then apply for the certificate for which it takes 2 weeks to process. Can I still apply for the dv lottery now and get married later as in next month? We’re in lockdown at the moment so that makes it even more difficult. Otherwise she will have to apply herself.
