2. There is no residency requirement for getting married in California - caveats
There is no guarantee that even the state of California will recognize a same-sex marriage in the future if the voters pass an initiative measure to amend the state constitution so that only marriages of one man and one woman would be recognized. If that passes (in the November election) it is not clear whether a same-sex marriage performed now would be grandfathered.
