“(a) Domestic partners are two adults who have chosen to share one another's lives in an intimate and committed relationship of mutual caring.
(b) A domestic partnership shall be established in California when both persons file a Declaration of Domestic Partnership with the Secretary of State pursuant to this division, and, at the time of filing, all of the following requirements are met:
(1) Neither person is married to someone else or is a member of another domestic partnership with someone else that has not been terminated, dissolved, or adjudged a nullity.
In the instant case, since you marriage with your husband is not terminated you cannot register a domestic partnership with your girlfriend.
