how you came to these conclusions:

Elena's marriage to her was real. She got a life of marriage and child with a man she loved. For Michael it may have started as a mission but Adam made it a real marriage. And if he died on a mission I am sure that Section would have organised a huge 'insurance ' payout.

How do you define 'real marriage'? Having a child makes a real marriage? Michael's love for his son makes his marriage real? And how do you balance his 'real' marriage with his One Great Love for Nikita?

His other wife, his section wife, Simone. She thought that Micahel was a great man but he really wasn't. It just felt good to be with another in the same circumstances as him. Both stuck in Section. Both dying at any time. Both lonely and afraid. Not great, just good for each other.

Um... at the risk of sounding overly-snarky, I think you're relying on a lot of fanon here. We don't really know how Simone felt about Michael, do we? We know Michael was distraught when he thought she died and we saw how he reacted when he found out she was alive - and how he reacted when she chose to die (again). I would disagree that his love for her was simply convenient, which is what (I THINK) you're implying.

I think Michael loved Simone enormously. Did he love her the same as he loved Nikita? I doubt it. He was younger when he met and married Simone, and I certainly got the impression they were more peers within Section. With Nikita, he is the older, more experienced and, yes, more cynical of the two of them. Doesn't mean he didn't love Simone, or love Nikita more. Just that his love for them was different, because he was a different man, changed by his experiences, changed by his love for each of them.
