I am always fascinated by the firm belief of atheists that God does not exist. I and many people on this forum might have issues that need to be clarified before accepting this theory.  As for the marital status of Jesus, I don't believe he was but at that time Rabbis tended to be married.

In popular Christian belief, Jesus never married and died single. However,  the Gospel of Philip which was included in the Nag Hammadi library  describes Mary Magdalene as having a very close relationship with Jesus:

There were three who always walked with the Lord: Mary, his mother, and her sister, and Magdalene, the one who was called his companion. His sister and his mother and his companion were each a Mary. (Isenberg's translation)
