During the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones Emdure Tully and "Roslin Frey" have their clothes taken off and are carried out of the hall for the bedding ceremony. As they leave we see dialogue between Roose Bolton and Catelyn Stark:
Catelyn: Poor girl.
Roose: Every bride suffers the same... I'm sure you endured yours with grace.
Catelyn: Oh, Ned forbade it...he said it wouldn't be right if he broke a man's jaw on our wedding night.
So what did Ned forbid?
The obvious answer would be the actual bedding ceremony but surely he wouldn't do that. Besides, I don't understand how that could end in breaking a man's jaw, unless you're into that kind of stuff. I then thought that maybe she meant being carried to bed by the men but in the latest season we find that they don't do that in the North anyways. So what was it?
