What's love got to do with it? Nobles in the medieval world, whether in the East or West, did not get married for love. In the East, marriage was arranged by families, by matchmakers, for political purposes ir familial alliances.However powerful he might be, his power only served to make his women fear him rather than love him. Love could not stem from an unequal relationship.
Marriage for love is only a recent concept.
