Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
When you marry your wife is not simply added to your passport
She will have to apply for British Citizenship in her own right when she is eligible to do so
The rules are set out here

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further information
