Dear PoP – Hosting a Lesbian Wedding in DC

“Dear PoP,

I got really strange request from my friend. She sent an email to our circle of friends asking if a lesbian couple she knows can use someones DC residence for their wedding ceremony. She said the marriage officiant just needs to be able to use my address for the marriage license. I’m a Columbia Heights resident and she could probably use my empty second bedroom or the meeting room in my condo. I just don’t understand why they can’t get married at a courthouse. Don’t really know about the gay marriage laws in DC. I’m just wondering if the other DC residents are getting these kinds of request as cheap way to do their nuptials.”

This is bizarre. Anyone know the proper laws here? You don’t actually have to live in DC to get married here do you?
