If you are married to a citizen, you are automatically becoming a "CPR" (my wife also went through this phase 4 years ago).

It's not automatic. An application to adjust status is necessary.

My understanding was "adjusting status" is "from conditional (CPR) to permanent".

Which is why, if one is married to a US citizen, they are automatically a conditional permanent resident (CPR).
To get from "conditional" to "permanent" is not automatic.
