There are any number of reasons for such marriages. The woman's household may have powerful connections, or offer valuable gifts, or claim a particularly strong pedigree. Likewise, the man's household might be poor, lacking in connections or prestige, or possess a poor pedigree; and the man himself may be personally unmarriageable for whatever reason.
Alternatively, yes, a male Dragon-Blood being groomed for a leadership role in his house may be married off to a mortal with an eye toward returning to the fold after a mortal lifetime, if he survives.
