Given that the Martells were furious at Rhaegar for humiliating Elia twice in public (at the tourney of Harrenhal and by "kidnapping" Lyanna), it is likely that repudiating his wife and consequently disowning his Targaryen/Martell children would have enraged the Martells much more, had they discovered it. Tyrion phrased it that "this war" had wiped out "one great House" already. In a similar strain, it is questionable if the Iron Bank would be willing to give her any further loans.
