(non-EU) C permit question

I found a few different takes on this, and I'm wondering what's right:

I (primary B) and my husband (dependent B) are both non-EU. He is a US citizen. After 5 years on the B, when he is eligible for a C permit, do I get it too through him? We will have been married for more than five years by then.

I am confused as to whether you have to be married to a C-permit holder for five years *after* they get their C permit (which wouldn't make a difference for me, since that would be 10 years on my B anyway), or whether you get a C through them after five years of marriage, whenever that happens in relation to them obtaining a C permit?

Then again, who knows what will happen in a few years with permits anyway... but it'd be nice to know what the rules are now, anyway.
Thanks!

Your husband gets his permit through you. He gets the same permit as you. He becomes eligible for a C permit when you do.

This wasn't the case for me.

My husband is EU and got his C permit after 5 years. Our son is EU and he got his C permit at the same time as my husband. I am non-EU and I remained on a B permit, although I would have had one automatically after another 5 years (the rule the OP mentioned about being married to a C permit holder for 5 years of which they held a C permit.)

I did put in an application for an early C permit and that was successful, so I got a C permit around a year after the rest of my family.

EU is different .

USA and Canada are also a bit different but not as different as EU.
