I was asked once and have been looking for info on this…

Was it a sin for Mary and Joseph not to have marrital relations after Jesus…was this a common practice among first century Jews…?

Where can I find more info on this?
 
No, it was not a sin for Joseph and Mary to abstain from marital intercourse even though the practice was rare in their culture. For more information on Mary’s perpetual virginity from a Jewish perspective, please see the following article on the subject by a Jewish convert to Catholicism:
