Why didn't Radha and Krishna Get Married?

Of course, there is a pastime of Radha and Krishna getting married. This is not told in the Srimad-Bhagavatam, but another authorized book, Sri Madhava-mahotsava, by Jiva Goswami, which has been produced in English by Mahanidhi Swami.

One reason generally given for Krishna not marrying Radha, or the other gopis for that matter, is that the parikiya rasa or unwedded love, is more risky from the social point of view and therefore a greater surrender or enthusiasm for Krishna is required to attain it, and this greater intensity makes it more palatable both for Krishna and the gopis.
