My husband and I were married in DC but we live in Maryland. Can I file for divorce in DC since we have a DC marriage license or do I have to file in Maryland?

You file for divorce where you live, not where you were married. But Maryland has a one year residency requirement unless the grounds for divorce occurred in Maryland. DC has a six month residency requirement. So it is not unheard of for some Maryland residents to move to DC to get divorced faster.
