Spider-Man and Mary Jane no more?

I saw this on Yahoo!'s home page and thought I would blog about it. It seems that Marvel Comics is going to erase Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson's marriage in the Amazing Spider-Man comic.

From this USA Today article:
In Amazing Spider-Man #545 last week, Peter and Mary Jane make a tearful deal with the devil-like character Mephisto: In exchange for saving Aunt May's life, Mephisto erases all traces of the Peter-Mary Jane marriage from memory.

In the issue out this week, subtitled Brand New Day, Peter Parker returns to his roots — young, nerdy and single. Aunt May is alive and well and Mary Jane is again just part of the cast. The marriage never happened.

Now I have never been a huge comic book fan but I've always liked Spider-Man and I think this is somewhat wrong to do now. It seems other Spider-Man fans are also upset over this.
