Peter Parker hit the jackpot
I've compiled some links on the Peter Parker- Mary Jane marriage and Joe Q-less and his vitriolic hate of their relationship. It might have been in "Web of Romance", but there was a scene where Peter sees MJ watching basketball with Luke Cage and Tony Stark, and just admires her charisma and spunk. It almost brought me to tears, and that is why I love them together. Average guy scores super-hot redhead? Who really loves him? Yea, lets break that up.
This all started from a two sentence post I saw at 2 Guys Buying comics. Chris, I respect you too much to believe your 'inclined to agree with him'.
Silver Bullet comics The petition to keep Spidey and Mary Jane together!
This petition is to let Mr. Quesada and Marvel know that fans enjoy Spider-Man being married to Mary Jane. They have already tried killing off MJ and an extended period of separation between the two. It didn't work. There is a history and relationship there that fans don't want to be thrown out. Mr. Quesada has apparently made the decision to destroy this 19 year marriage based on his own opinions of who Spider-Man should be.
I would argue that marrying MJ was Peter's happy ending.
Comics should be good has some great comments regarding this...

Every time Quesada opens his mouth I just think to myself, "THIS moron is running Marvel Comics?" I'm hard-pressed to name a single instance where he's demonstrated a keen and intuitive understanding of what makes any given character work (as the most recent Newsarama feature painfully demonstrates). At best he offers vague generalities; at worst he completely fails to understand the appeal of the very characters and titles he's in charge of.

Stick with Mary Jane? Why the hell not: after all, she's as integral to the series as Lois Lane is to Superman. She was on the scene before Gwen Stacy, she was there for Peter after Gwen died, and more importantly, she's capable of a life outside of the relationship. Can Lois Lane say that?
Joe Quesada is a dumbass
Reporting on Marvels and Legends
Seems Joey Q said Peter Parker and Mary Jane being married is a mistake, and they need to fix it. Only problem is Joe Questionable-Intelligence feels there's too much history to be able to split them apart.
