Not married here

Dear mr fedup:

Greetings. Yes, of course we recognize marriages in Louisiana and you can get divorced here if you lived here for more than 6 months. Thank you.

we were married in Louisiana even though we have both lived here for 11 years and have been married for 4.5 years. we got married in LA because my family is from there.
so the question is since we never got married here in NC, does it recognize the marriage and which state will we have to get a divorce in?
