Just to let you know, Gwinnett County marriage records from 1840 on do exist except for the period 1867 - 1870, which were mostly lost in the courthouse fire. Mary Emeline's marriage must have taken place somewhere else.
Also, just an opinion: I think it's more likely that Mary Emeline married a Strickland who died in the war rather than one who didn't serve at all, such as the Robert Strickland you spoke of. That Robert doesn't appear in the list of men from Gwinnett County in the 1864 Census for Re-Organizing the Georgia Militia. The only Robert Strickland in the list was a Robert T. Strickland in Meriwether County, a 32 year old farmer with some sort of physical disability. It could be that the Robert Strickland in the index you named was too old to serve. All Georgia men old to serve were either drafted or named in the 1864 census, supposedly, and you certainly would expect Mary Emeline's husband to fall into that age group.
Sorry I can't help more. It is odd that Mary Emeline and her husband do not show up in at least one census.
