According to Christian History and the New Testament, Jesus did not marry.
Some people say that the Wedding in Cana (which has the first miracle in Jesus's ministry) was in fact the Wedding of Jesus.
The thriller novel, The Da Vinci Code implies that Mary Magdalene was the Wife of Jesus. This is difficult as Christian history places Mary Magdalen in France some time after the crucifixion of Jesus.
The three saints Mary Magdalene, Mary Salome and Mary Jacobe, whose relics are the focus of the devotions of pilgrims, are believed to be the women who were the first witnesses to the empty tomb at the resurrection of Jesus. After the Crucifixion of Jesus, Mary Salome, Mary Jacobe, and Mary Magdalene set sail from Alexandria, Egypt with their uncle Joseph of Arimathea according to French legend, or alternatively were cast adrift in a boat that arrived off the coast of what is now France, at "a sort of fortress named Oppidum-Râ", and the location was known as Notre-Dame-de-Ratis (Râ becoming Ratis, or boat) (Droit, 1961, 19); the name was later changed to Notre-Dame-de-la-Mer, and then to Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer in 1838.
