Having some sort of ~relationship~ with someone, even if said relationship has only lasted shameless manwhore Mark Sloan decided that he was (a) lonely and unhappy, (b) wanted a wife (This is actually good advice. Young people carry a lot of fear and anxiety when it comes to dating – how do I ask a girl out? What if she says “no”? What if I never get asked.
The guy was such a hound there was bound to be someone out there who would have his child, and he ended up with two such children.
The second time he had a child, it was with Callie while she was separated from Arizona. Lexie's association with Alex meant that Mark had an interconnection with him in the storyline.
This came at the worst time when Alex was shot in the Season 6 finale.
Mark and Lexie worked together to save Alex's life. While it's the responsibility of any human to save another, Mark's sole reasoning was due to Lexie's state at the time. So, Alex should be forever thankful to Lexie for playing a part in saving his life as Mark would never have been that invested had it not been for her. This time, it was the aforementioned thing with Amelia that came into play.
When Lexie found out that Mark had feelings for her, she took the first step and went to his apartment to talk it out and perhaps re-initiate their relationship. All would've ended well had Mark not again been involved with Amelia at the wrong time.
Witnessing Amelia and Mark in the middle of things prompted Lexie's departure and stalled them getting back together for the time being. Although they first noticed each other because of Mark's previous bullying of George, he refrained from pursuing her because of Derek's promise. However, by this point, Lexie had grown enamored by Mark and went to his place with the sole intention of starting things.
So, in a way, Lexie is responsible for everything that happened between the two; both good or bad. He was thoroughly immature in that he never gave peoples' feelings any consideration and preferred to think from a different part of the body rather than his mind. In the case of Lexie and Jackson, though, Mark finally relented and gave them his blessing.
A whole lot of immature antics had preceded this change in character for him, but Mark finally got to the point where he could let go of his feelings and think of Lexie's happiness over his own. It didn't last long; her feelings for him were far too strong to control. She had made up her mind that she was in love with him, but the event brought to his mind that they had wasted all this time staying away when they should've been together.
It took an awful calamity to come to this point, but they did at least part with love. It may have been the one genuine declaration on Mark's part in his life.
In Mark's case, Lexie remained in his mind till the end. Meanwhile, Jackson was in love with April by then. Lexie's passing brought the clarity to Mark that he had been passing over love his entire life and he imparted some sage advice toward Jackson.
