As a Lawyer in training Martin was used to finding clever loop holes in the most complex of clauses. So of course it was way too easy for him to exploit the age old text that dwelt within the magical spell book he had cleverly aquired.
"Thou hast to challenge a foe in combat, the victor shall claim the other has his lady - whether he or she be of such an origin to begin with"
Martin found away around challenging his best friend to a fight, instead they had a video game tournament. And with each successive game of "Halo" won, Martin found his friend becoming quite "lady" of his dreams.
