The problem with the G.I.Joe women were that there were so few. In the Sunbow era: all but Covergirl dated an officer. For all the other male Joes, they could only get civilians.
That's what happened to Shipwreck (who got Mara), Quick-Kick (Amber), Lifeline (Britney van Mark) and Iceberg (Mahia).
There is always going to be a forbidden relationship in warfare. Usually it means a Good guy/Bad girl thing. That is where Mainframe and Zarana took center stage (my favorite couple). I guarantee Cobra's wrath would've been worse than the Joes'. If the two were married, I'm sure Zanya would've taken advantage of this.
Destro/Baroness was a classic. Pythona was obviously destined for Serpentor (Cobra Commander could always make a woman out of the wives of Serpy's DNA components). Even with the later comic females, there is never enough love in both armies.
