St. Peter
Question from Louis on 03-03-2013:

Was the apostle Peter married?

Answer by Catholic Answers on 03-04-2013:

Louis--

At some point, yes. Scripture does not say what happened to St. Peter's wife, or even if she was alive at the time of Jesus' public ministry. But St. Peter had to have been married at least once because Scripture mentions his mother-in-law (Matt. 8:14).
