And Lyanna too for being a double-standard twit. She doesn't love Robert and knows he'll cheat on her, so she runs off with a MARRIED FATHER. Apparently, she doesn't care about adultery as long as she's the one hurting someone else (Elia). As a Northern Woman she wouldn't have had any respect for a Polygamous marriage in the first place.
It's legal for the Targaryens to have more than one wife, so strictly speaking he wasn't cheating, and the Martells have in the past had no problem with that arrangement, seeing as it's happened many times before. As to Lyanna's attitudes, it would have been well-known and accepted that the royal family did things that way, so it's a stretch to assume that Lyanna would have had a problem with it.
