My husband and I have been married for almost 1 year here in USA and we are collecting the documents necessary for registering our marriage in Poland and Brazil.

I've read that to start the process to get the Polish citizenship we need to be married for at least 3 years, plus being living in the country, but we are still in USA.

Anyways, just talking about the MARRIAGE years, will this first year married under the American laws count in Poland or just will start count when we finally register it in Poland?

They will count from the time you were married. You must get your marriage certificate registered in Poland to start on any citizenship filings.
