Why are you tying to get married to get a divorced? Lol in California if you have been married, with legal marriage or community marriage it's still binding so do your homework if you just plan to get a divorce later on. In California you'll have to pay spousal support if you have been married ten or more years. I wouldn't get married because no guy I have ever dated has made a lot of money so I would have to pay them spousal support so no thanks lol0

Don't get married! Ever. There's no reason for a man to get married, and a lot of reasons not to. Google will help you find a lot of info why not to marry.
I don't know if CA is one of them, but a lot of states have 'common law' marriage, where the state waves it's hands and *POOF*, you're magically married. Even if the US didn't recognize the marriage because it happened in France (they'd recognize it tho), the fact that you've identified as a married couple would be enough to get you common-law in most states.
CA is a lifetime vagimony state, so in 10 years she'll have a monthly payout for life.
Any woman that would accept you putting yourself in the position that marriage puts a man in is not a woman you want to be with. A woman that demands it obviously hates the man she's with.2
