Astrology gives a lot of attention to the 10 planets and 12 houses, but there are other bodies you can pay attention to - like asteroids! There are thousands of asteroids out there, and many relate to something specific, like love and relationships. Asteroid Juno is one of those asteroids, and governs marriage and commitment.

Juno in Mythology
Juno was the wife of Zeus/Jupiter, and was a very faithful wife - that dude cheated left, right, and center, and she still stuck around! We can argue whether or not that was a good thing (I'd be Team Drop Him Like It's Hot), but this does show how much Juno represents commitment.
This tends to be said as "marriage" since that is the traditional mode of commitment in romantic relationships, however it can symbolize whatever commitment means for you (in case you don't believe in marriage - but you know, your natal asteroid Juno may show why that is!).
Juno Versus Venus and Mars
Venus and Mars are often the ones we look to for relationship stuff. Venus is attractive and shows what we want and need in relationships, and Mars is initiative, and shows our desire and drive. Juno is kind of the after part. Venus likes dating and romance, Mars likes sex and the hunt, and Juno likes to put a label on it. Asteroid Juno's like, let's DTR this thing!
Together, they're a relationship trifecta. Put them together, and you hit relationshiop gold.
