Marvel's doing nothing of the sort. There are some hardcore Rogue fanboys in the X-office, and they wanted her back with Magneto, so they went and did it.
If they really wanted to have Gambit stand on his own they'd of have him tell Rogue to buzz off with her super villain bf and not bother dealing with her anymore.
