Married?

There's news going around about a 4th-century papyrus fragment written in Coptic that indicates Jesus was married. True, that sounds pretty sensational on the surface. 

I got to thinking, "What would Jesus' personal ad look like?" 

I imagine it would go something like this:

"Single Jewish Male, early 30s (looks 25) br/br, facial hair, seeks nice Palestinian Jewish female for long-term relationship. Employed as a teacher, but enjoys woodworking, fishing, and water sports in my time off. Strong believer in universal health care, equal rights for women, minorities and individuals with disabilities and feeding the hungry. Friends say that I’m kind, compassionate, fun at parties (can turn water into wine) and that I look good in a loin cloth. Raised with small-town values, I come from a non-traditional family (one mother, two fathers). Favorite meal: Broken bread with a cup of wine. Interested in long-term relationship only. Fundamentalists are a huge turn-off and need not apply."

Married / with NO children? Since he surely did not use birth control I suppose that indicates an immaculate inconception?
