Yes, 35yamom, I just took a course on The Women of the Bible (a Jewish course) and I just finished the story of Esther and it says according to commentaries, Esther and Mordecai were married.

Oh, and I think it said according to one opinion in the commentaries, so there may be differing opinions on whether or not they were married.
