Couples in comic books rarely last, and those who do end up as iconic pairings. However, weddings in comics are often exciting for more than one reason. Yes, these are two comic book characters getting married and signifying their union, but at the same time, these are also superheroes. That means the wedding will not always go right.
Most weddings in comics often include interference, bad guys coming in and messing things up, or even worse, other heroes making things harder than they needed to be. However, through the years, Marvel Comics have pulled off some great weddings in the pages of the comics, and some have a lasting effect on everyone involved.
One of the more interesting relationships between two Marvel characters is the one between Gambit and Rogue. On one level, they seem perfect for each other. However, because they are so much alike and are both combustible, it has never worked out right between them. However, they did get married. In X-Men: Gold #30 by Marc Guggenheim and David Marquez, the wedding was supposed to be Colossus and Kitty Pryde, but she left him at the altar. With everyone there, it all changed on the fly when Gambit proposed to Rogue, and they got married there instead.
When Jean Grey died, it broke Cyclops completely. He lost the woman he loved and had no idea what he would do with his life. A trip to Alaska with his brother Alex for a family reunion changed all that, and that is when Scott met a woman named Madelyne Pryor that looked like Jean. The two fell in love and got married in Uncanny X-Men #175 by Chris Claremont, Paul Smith, and Madelyne Pryor. Sadly, she turned out to be a clone, and Scott left her and their newborn baby when Jean returned.
Years later, Cyclops finally married the love of his life. When Jean Grey came back to life, the two reteamed, and their life had many ups and downs before they finally decided to tie the knot, something many fans had been waiting on for years. Jean proposed to Scott, and the two finally got married in X-Men Vol. 2 #30 by Fabian Nicieza and Andy Kubert. This led to the storyline where Scott and Jean went into the future and had a chance to raise Cable as Slym and Redd Dayspring.
