Why is Radhakrishnan not married?

Shri Krishna and Shri Radha reside in Goloka. Many gopas and gopis live with Krishna in Goloka.  According to the Puranas, there was a gop named Shridhama in Goloka, who did not like to see Shri Radha with Shri Krishna. Therefore Shridhama cursed Shri Radha, due to which Shri Radha incarnated on earth and forgot Krishna. Due to this curse of Shridhama, the marriage of Shri Krishna and Shri Radha could not take place. Even though Shri Krishna and Shri Radha were not married, but due to their infinite love, the name of Shri Radha is taken in front of Krishna’s name even today- Radhakrishna.
