Jesus And Mary Magdalene Married
According to The Da Vinci Code, Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married, but this fact was suppressed by the early Church (pgs. 242-249). There are no ancient claims that Jesus was married, even from non-canonical1 writings. Luke 8:1-3 states that three women -- Mary, Joanna, and Susanna -- traveled with Jesus, but there is no reason to infer from this a romantic relationship between Jesus and Mary.
The “strongest” piece of evidence for a marriage is a fragmented text from the so-called Gospel of Philip, probably composed 200-plus years after the time of Jesus, which claims that Jesus used to kiss Mary. Whether these were supposed to have been platonic kisses on the cheek or forehead or romantic kisses on the mouth is unknown as the text is unreadable at this point.
It should be noted that even this highly suspect text does not claim that Jesus and Mary were married.

1 “Non-canonical writings” are ancient religious works that were not included in the Bible because Christians did not believe these works had been inspired by God. In many cases, they were falsely attributed to important religious figures in an attempt to bolster their credibility.
