When Jesus lived on Earth, did he have a love life?

i know the Bible doesnt mention it but i thought it just probably wasnt relevant

God made Jesus a part of him. By doing this Jesus did not need a love life or a relationship. He did not lust over women because he didn't have the need to.

By the way, good question!

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?

Jesus was more prophet than rabbi; rules on marriage for prophets appear to be fungible. It is neither forbidden nor mandated. Jeremiah was never married, but Isaiah and Hosea were. The Bible does not record a spouse for Jesus, an argument from silence in an otherwise vocal testimony.
The marriage supper is for the Church, who is always called the Bride of Christ.

Wow someone who actually knows his Bible, it was an intentional misquote. However it would have been more remarkable and probably remarked on if Jesus had been single.

Some purport he had an affair with Mary Magdaline. A few say he was gay. Neither have any historical or Scriptural support.

Agreed. Spurious ideas abound, shred-less of evidence.

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.

The bride of Christ is always and everywhere called the Church. Not Mary.

Yes! He loved us enough to die for us! But like a girlfriend no.

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.

Where did the affair, notion come from? There was no affair.

Mary was a Virgin...

She has been, until she had sex and got pregnant. Like any other woman.

Those who deny the virgin birth reject the authority of Scripture, deny the supernatural birth of the Savior, undermine the very foundations of the Gospel, and have no way of explaining the deity of Christ....
Christians must face the fact that a denial of the virgin birth is a denial of Jesus as the Christ. The Savior who died for our sins was none other than the baby who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin. The virgin birth does not stand alone as a biblical doctrine, it is an irreducible part of the biblical revelation about the person and work of Jesus Christ. With it, the Gospel stands or falls.
Taken from "Can a Christian Deny the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ?"

You know, the entire virgin birth crap is based on mistranslations. Jesus never claimed his mother was a virgin. The word used in the original Greek, parthenos, doesn't even necessarily mean a virgin. E.g. It is used in the LXX to describe Dinah after her rape. Certainly no longer a virgin. Or shouldn't I confuse you with facts?

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.

Hope this helps!
