Even though a lot of things in Peter’s life are going well, and he’s finally completely accepted his role as Spider-Man, he still feels incomplete and unhappy. Something’s missing. After much deliberation and soul searching, he realizes that he needs a woman. A wife. Somebody that he can confide in and somebody who knows him as well as he knows himself. Someone he can talk to about being Spider-Man. That really only leaves one option. And so he asks Mary Jane Watson to marry him.
