I've always thought that the real problem with the Storm/Panther marriage was that there were no problems with the Storm/Panther marriage.
Ororo and T'Challa are precisely the sort of people who, if they met in real life, would quietly court, quietly marry, quietly pump out some kids and quietly die fifty or so years later having had narry a serious argument in their entire lives. Now, that's great if you are real people, but in a comic book that makes them a horrible match. Comics thrive on drama, on couples who couldn't possibly work somehow fighting to stay together via the sheer epic power of their eternal love.
When you've got two people as quietly compatable as Ororo and Panther, you basically end up with this:
"I believe we should do this very sensible thing"
"Yes, I quite agree we should exactly that very sensible thing"
"Ah, we are agreed then, jolly good"
"Yes, our synchronicity is indeed pleasant"
"Well, since today is completely planned out, let's work on tommorow's plans"
"I believe that tomorrow we should do more entirely sensible things"
"Yes, I quite agree with you about that as well"
That doesn't work in a comic book. No drama.
