"Marriage is an institution in which interpersonal relationships (usually intimate and sexual) are acknowledged by the state or by religious authority. It is often viewed as a contract."

So unless you have a certain affinity with the state or religion, "marriage" does not make any sense anyway. With this in mind, I don't see what's wrong or peculiar with this, apart from the fact that it is pointless in view of the fact that I don't think you can get alimony from a manga character.
