Virtually every Jewish man in Jesus’ day did marry, especially those who were considered to be Rabbis. The commandment "Be fruitful and multiply" is one that Jews at the time took seriously. If Jesus was not married he would have been taken less seriously by the Jews and may have been accused of being homosexual. In those days homosexuals were ostracized by the community and sometimes killed. As a rabbi, Jesus could not have been a homosexual as it would not have been allowed. Revelation 19:7, Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Then the angel said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!'" And he added, "These are the true words of God." Can this passage in Revelations be much clearer?
Jewish men usually married about age 32-35, and Jewish women usually about age 15-20. There is absolutely no historical or Biblical evidence of Jesus having a "love life" other than loving his disciples and the others named as His followers. Supposition of one or discussion of one would be considered sacrilegious at best, and possibly heretical. However, it has not kept people from doing so.
For a long time I was thinking he must have been married. Everyone back then got married at 18. But then I was thinking, there could be only one kind of people who couldn't get married: momzers. And that fits perfectly because Jesus was a momzer as his mom got knocked up in her affair with the Roman legionnaire Panthera while she was betrothed to Joseph of Nazareth.
Jesus had no love life such as the love lives we have today (marriage, dating, etc). He did not sin at all, for He is God and God has no sin. Therefore, he did not lust over women or desire them sexually. Why would he desire His own creation? It would not make any sense. What you must know is that He LOVES us and gave His life for us, thus we must give our lives to Him.
