The question, did Jesus marry Mary Magdalene, has surfaced many times and has been a subject of much debate. In my opinion, the answer is no. To even consider this question, it has to be acknowledged that both Jesus and Mary Magdalene were real people. A real person is one who actually existed.
Who Was Mary Magdalene
Here are the scripture references.
Matthew 27:55-61: And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him. 56: Among which was Mary Magdalene….verse 61: And there was Mary Magdalene and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre,
Mark: 15:40; There was also women looking on afar off, among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses and Salome.
Mark 16:1; And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome, had bought spices that they might come and anoint him….
Mark 16:9; And when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devil. 10; And she (Mary Magdalene) went and told them, that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
Luke 8:2; And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils..As you read please note that there were other women ministering unto him

note: both Mark and Luke mention seven devils being cast out of Mary Magdalene. There is no doubt, that she loved Jesus, for who he was and what he had done for her.
Luke 24:10; It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary, the mother of James and other women that were with them which told those things unto the apostles.
John 19:25; Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, his mother’s sister Mary the wife of Cleophas and Mary Magdalene.
John 20:1-18; This is the story of Mary Magdalene being the first to see Jesus, after His resurrection. I would recommend that you get your bible and read the story.. Verse 18: Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord….
The question: Was Jesus married to Mary Magdalene?
The answer for me is simple… If Jesus were married, to Mary magdalene, I believe it would be in the bible.There is nothing in the bible that points to Him being married. He would have asked Mary Magdalene to look after His mother if she were his wife. He would have asked someone to look after Mary Magdalene if He were married to her. He didn’t!
If He were not married and had had a relationship with Mary Magdalene, He would have committed sin and scripture says there was no sin found in him. 1 Peter 2:22.. There are many other scriptures that speak of Jesus being sinless..
That’s my simple explanation.
Also…If they were married or in a relationship and had a child as some propose, don’t you think that the authorities, those who crucified Jesus, would have been watching her and would have killed the child.
