Immediately afterwards, he began writing MJ as nothing more than a sex object (with the occasional subplot to break up the monotony). That's one of the many reasons I strongly dislike his run on the book.
Unfortunately, I think that this is the primary reason why many people dislike(d) the marriage. While other (but not all) writers handled it well, Michelinie was writing it very poorly in the flagship book, which colors most people's perception. J.M. DeMatteis in particular wrote Peter and MJ brilliantly together in The Spectacular Spider-Man, his brief pre-Clone-Saga and early Clone Saga contributions to The Amazing Spider-Man, and post-Clone-Saga on The Spectacular Spider-Man.
