comment Meaning of まんまと in this sentence
I think you need to imagine the statement (1) with and w/o the adverb and (2) how the speaker would have said it: eg "I let you catch me" vs "I let you catch me easily", "I neatly (conveniently?) let you catch me". This is of course subjective, まんまと is typically used with 罠にかかる, but without the adverb there is less scope for irony in how it is said - it becomes very factual.

comment How to begin a reply to a question?
Actually, thinking about it, you could use そうですね to express approval, agreement or disagreement with the question. A hesitant slow そうですね would show reluctance or difficulty (or in a different situation, be used to deliver a negative response)

comment 「の」in「お嫁さんにしたいの好き」
Would it not follow the normal rules of grammar if we take the の as a nominaliser as in 「お嫁さんにしたい」の[こと」[が]好き? (The こと may be redundant as の can act as a nominaliser in its own right.)
