I have become oddly fond of my fat little wife. The two before her never made a sound in bed, but this one squeals and shudders. I find that quite endearing.
— Roose Bolton

A Storm of SwordsEdit

Roose tells Ser Jaime Lannister that Lord Walder Frey offered to pay the weight of whatever Frey girl Roose married as the dowry, so he picked the largest available Frey girl. Walda is present for the wedding of Lord Edmure Tully and her aunt Roslin Frey, however she is absent for the Red Wedding bloodbath.
