Personally, I have no problem with the idea that Jesus was married.
I know tradition says he wasn’t married and that somehow his being married takes away from who he is and was. Some even consider it blasphemy to even think of such a thing.
I disagree at the risk of being labeled a heretic. I just think of Matthew 7:1-2 and smile. After all, there is nothing in the New Testament that says Jesus was or wasn’t married. It’s all hand-me-down tradition.
But I digress. Let’s get to those opinions from the Wiki Answers discussion that at least open the door to even consider the possibility that Jesus was married.
In sickness and health
“If you knew your husband/wife was going to die ten or so years down the rode [sic], would you not marry them? We do say in sickness and in health for a reason.”
This references the fact that Jesus knew he was going to die shortly. The inference is: If he loved someone, wouldn’t he marry her anyway, even though he knew he was going to die shortly?
If marriage were just a physical act of mortality, perhaps Jesus wouldn’t marry with this advanced knowledge. However, it is my belief that marriage isn’t just a thing of mortality, a passing fancy, or merely some legal tie-that-binds in order to have “legitimate” children.
To further investigate this matter, you might want to check out my series: “Is There a Mother in Heaven”, beginning with “Is There a Mother in Heaven? Part 1—Two Questions“.
To put it on a more personal level: If you were engaged to be married and you suddenly discovered that you had a life-threatening disease and were ”given” only six months to two years to live, would you go ahead and marry? I mean, if you really loved each other?
I think the majority of people in this situation would indeed go ahead an marry, although there might be some who would not. But I believe the odds are that you would marry, even with the knowledge of a potential heartbreak down the road.
Because I believe that marriage is something other than a thing of mortality, I believe Jesus would go ahead and marry, even knowing what he knew about his own impending death. Of course, this is assuming he would marry at all.
Later, I will get into some other reasons why I believe Jesus was married that are not covered by this Wiki Answers discussion.
