That is an interesting view to me. Can, at least from my view, see few things that would cause a king, and anointed of God, to break some basic commandments, for a woman, or a man, other than love. Perhaps desire can be that strong, but desire rarely lasts years, at least at that heightened state.
Even if the marriage was invalid, the murder was planned, and carried out.
Perhaps a father can weep for his dead son, and never have loved him, but for myself, find that hard to accept.
