For quite a long time Mary Magdalene was said to be a prostitute. In recent years, it has come to light that this judgment is false. It is said that there is NO scriptural basis for such a conclusion.
Can anyone find any passages that proclaims Mary Magdalene was a prostitute ?
What was she afflicted with in truth ?
What relationship did she potentially have with Jesus ?

I can't provide proof, but one theory is that she was the wife or girlfriend of Jesus.

I think it's an assumption much like many Christians wrongly assummed the biblical verse of the Lion laying down with the lamb.

Calling her a whore was an opinon, anyway, which leads me to believe she was dating Jesus. Most of the Catholic laws were created by Kings, not Jesus himself, anyway. Did Jesus ever say he couldn't date? He was in human form, after all.
Those that claim Mary was a prostitute will claim that it is said so in Scripture. I looked through Scripture and have yet to find anywhere it states she was a woman of ill-repute . She was, as per Scripture, possessed by seven demons.

And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,
Luke 8:2 ( KJV )

Whether she was married to or a girlfriend of Jesus, not sure if Jesus, being who he was as he was, would find need of a wife or gf. Once one attains certain levels of spirituality, worldly desire(s) tend to diminish.
