    I've never bought into Quesada's insistence on things being no different than when they were married, especially given their years of shared history. If Peter and MJ were the same as they'd always been they would never have broken up at all beyond that one seperation scare they had years back which they both resolved and became far stronger because of. OMD established the pair sacrificed their "unconditional love made holy" to save May. In my interpretation of events as they presently are in the Mephistoverse, Peter and MJ will remain consistently on/off because their unconditional love is being used to keep May alive and thus their devotion to each other is not as strong as it was. They are still capable of being together and show occasional bursts of strength (the part of their souls that remembers the original reality and their marraige), but will always have an underlining demon-dominant weakness that drives them apart and causes them to give up far too easily on each other, (the fear from those parts of the souls that if everything goes too perfect, the Mephistoverse will end and May will be lost to them), which can lead to stories in favor of them or against them for as long as creative wish to keep the current paradigm in place.
    Quesada will not be the head of Marvel forever. Once he and the people who created OMD are finally gone from Marvel, there might be a new creative team that will bring them back together. But it would be another decade or so before we see that day happen.

    Maybe I also should have added "for as long as creative hang around" at that last part...that said, there is no telling if the people in charge afterwards will bring Peter and MJ back together or not, I was merely suggesting ways in which they could theoretically continue playing the Ross/Rachel game with the two with some kind of meta in-story explanation, possibly one the audience, Deadpool, and your favourite Jennifer Walters would be aware of factoring in the fourth wall (and remember, Spider-Woman also thought Peter was married after returning from Skrull captivity, they never followed up on that)

    However, keep in mind that thanks to the dailys the marraige has'nt really went anywhere even with the current lot in charge.
