Jesus christ, you're being an idiot.
I would never say that statement about Mark Waid, Dan Slott, Zeb Wells, Grant Morrison or Greg Pak because to my knowledge they all wrote Spider-man before BND as well as after.
It was Quesada's decision and he's an artist not a writer who forced a stupid decision on his writing staff.
Spider-man still absolutely had the "parker luck" while married. It absolutely didn't interfere with the storytelling possibilities directly related to the character. He was married for over 20 years without anyone going "Uh excuse me, I can't write this character right now because he's married"
JMS's entire fan favorite run? the character was married.
Saying that marriage inhibits storytelling is just flat out a dumb statement.
You can't say it's flat-out dumb, it's a matter of opinion. I personally feel that Brand New Day reinvigorated Spider-Man and made the character a lot more interesting. I also don't think they could have done the brilliant Superior Spider-Man story if Peter was still married, MJ would figure it out instantly, so hey, there's a concrete example, if Peter was still married it would have INHIBITED the story Slott is currently telling.
You may disagree, but hey, Marvel agree with me, and that's what counts.
