I'm a member of the State Bar of California, the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California (LA?OC Metro and surrounding counties), and the California and National Associations of Realtors. I have comprehensive knowledge of California family law.
You will not find any precedent cases which discuss a wife's obligation to support her husband in the same manner as a husband must support his wife. The reason for this is that a decision from a court of appeals or the California Supreme Court on the issue would violate equal protection on its face -- and that would violate both the California and U.S. Constitution.
The precedent cases for spousal support, permanent or temporary, are the same regardless of which spouse is the "breadwinner" in the family. The only way to find case law that applies to a particular case is to consider the unique facts evidenced during the marriage, compare those facts to the factors identified by Family Code Section 4320, and then find case law to support those unique facts and factors, as may be required.
In practice, and while family law attorneys love to spin lengthy briefs discussing the case law relevant to a family law ccase (because it helps justify legal fees), family department judges know the case law, and they're most interested in the facts proved at trial as applies to the Section 4320 factors.
So, while I certainly understand your desire to find specific case law relevant to your dissolution, you are almost certainly better served to prepare your evidence and argue the facts against the Section 4320 factors.
That said, if you want some generally applicable case law, for the length of marriage, then:
Marriage of Rising (1999) 76 Cal.App.4th 472, 478, fn. 9)
Marriage of Left (2012) 208 Cal.App.4th 1137, 1151
Marriage of Brantner (1977) 67 CA3d 416, 423.
Concerning a spouse ordered to pay temporary support, but not eligible for permanent support, there are two cases that discuss the irrelevance of temporary support orders where a change in circumstances occurs after the temporary support orders are made, but before trial:
Marriage of Burlini (1983) 143 Cal.App.3d 65, 68-69
Marriage of McNaughton (1983) 145 Cal.App.3d 845, 850
