    Most one-sided marriages?

    I don't think it's all that lopsided. The Manwoodys are one of the oldest and highest-ranking houses in Dorne, he had come with Mariah's retinue and thus was in KL for ~18-39 years before they wed, he "studied at the Citadel [and] was a cultured man of great wit and learning," Elaena was the youngest of 5 children, had already had 7 kids by then (including two bastards), and marrying Michael was for love not dynastic reasons (indeed they never had children together). I'd say it was a perfectly reasonable marriage.
