In a nutshell, the law says you can't enter the US as a visitor with the intent to stay and adjust status. Having asked the question, you can't now deny that the thought never occurred to you... ergo, that route is now closed to you - unless you want to lie to the CBP officer when you ask permission to enter the US.

so was interested
I Am a U.S. Citizen How Do I…Help My Fiancé(e) Become a U.S. Permanent Resident?

What if my fiancé(e) uses a different kind of visa, or enters
as a visitor without visa, to come here so we can marry?

There could be serious problems for your fiancé(e) if he or she enters the United States on another visa with the intention of marrying and residing here. Attempting to obtain a visa or entering the United States by saying one thing when you intend another may be considered immigration fraud, for which there are serious penalties. Those penalties include restricting a person’s ability to obtain immigration benefits, including permanent residence, as well as a possible fine of up to $10,000 and imprisonment of up to 5 years
