Default When to apply for J1 waiver?

Hello everyone,
I recently came to know about the J1 waiver option. When does one has to apply for a waiver?
Is it to be done before you apply for a match or can it be done after you get into a residency? What are the chances to get a waiver and what are the conditions in which one can get it?
I am going to give my step 1 in December and will be getting married next year,before my match. My Fiancee is working in Pittsburgh, so does settling in US after marriage increase your chances of getting a waiver?
Thanks in advance.
