Gospel of John shows our Lord to be Mary's only child
These are the brothers of Jesus that are listed in Gospels - Joses, Jude, James the less, and Simon. As you know, they are not actually "Brothers." Aramaic word for Brother can also mean Cousin. They (Joses, Jude, James the less, Simon) are the sons of Qalyopa (Brother of Joseph) and Maryam (another Mary). On Mother's side of Jesus, we have James and John (the sons of Zebedee and Salome). If Maryam had children other than Jesus, then don't you think Gospels would have mentioned it?

Its true that John was the favorite disciple of Jesus. That is certainly a major reason. But I also thought that Jesus told John to look after Maryam, because John was a relative of Jesus. Isn't it important in Aramaic tradition that a close relative must look after his/her things if he/she dies? It must also be noted that this is the only time (John 19:25) where Salome is revealed as Sister/Cousin of Maryam (Mother of Jesus).
