To answer a few of your questions...

    Spoilers for the marriage. They are set to get married, but I thought that their relationship has been kind of on-and-off for the past few decades. Are there any issues Pre-Whedon that really highlight their love for each other? I do recall his relationship with that healer babe during the first Secret Wars (I haven't read that in a while, though.), but I don't think that's been brought up since.

It was a kind of perfunctory story written by Jim Shooter to have a pretext to end the relationship between Kitty and Piotr which was making him increasingly uncomfortable because of Kitty's young age (13 3/4 when she fell in love with him, 14 when they broke up). Peter's thing with Zsaji wasn't brought up much later because the romance had all the heat of a hot-water bottle left in bed for several days and Zsaji was already dead when Piotr used the romance as his reason for breaking up with Kitty. And this happened after UXM #179, where Kitty was prepared to marry Caliban to save Piotr's life....

    I haven't read a lot of the key Claremont (From his first run.) issues with Kitty, but i do recall their relationship being pretty friendly, but not romantic. Thanks.

    Speaking of Peter, now that I think about it, he does have kind of a shady history for someone who's supposed to be the "Nice guy" of the team. He's killed Proteus and Riptide (Although Proteus could be justified away. The Riptide one was more in the heat of anger and rage.), he beat up Pete Wisdom when he saw her with Kitty, and he joined the Acolytes. Yeah, at first he had brain damage, but didn't he go BACK to them after they fixed the brain damage? Isn't he supposed to have a son out there, too? When you take all of this into account, Peter might not exactly be the most stable guy out there.

Never seen anyone holding Proteus' or Riptide's death against Colossus, and I think most would agree that him beating up Pete Wisdom was majorly out of character and something that only happened because Warren Ellis wanted to validate the romance between Kitty and his pet character/author avatar Pete Wisdom. So people who aren't Warren Ellis fanboys and fangirls tend to discount that scene.

Yup, Colossus has a son, Peter son of Nereel, in the Savage Land. He (unknowingly) fathered him during the ANAD X-Men's first stay in the Savage Land (in the 110s of UXM), before he met Kitty (UXM #129).

    What do people think of the marriage? It might actually be GOOD to have a marriage that lasts in the X-Universe! We all remember what happened with poor Scott.

We all remember, so I can't say I'm too sanguine about the prospects for this marriage....
