GRRM likes to write parallel stories. Two stories that for a while at least go along the same type archs. They often end up going in different directions.
Jaime and Brienne = Tyrion and Penny- Both found women that they don't like, but because of things they can't control have to travel with her, and then start to care about that women.
Jon and Ygritte = Samwell and Gilly- Both are order to do something they don't want to do, wind up sleeping with a women, even though they did not want to break the vows of the NW
,IMO Ned = Robb-, have to Rebel against a crazy king or die, after losing most of their familly, alone in a distant kingdom, find comfort in the arms of a women.

I'm not sure I understand why you're saying Lord Manderly hasn't broken any guest rights?
He wasn't! With the Freys at WH, he gave them gifts, and they were no longer his guest ( I also don't think he killed them, one of his friends did) and at WF, he knows FArya, is fake so no Starks, brought his own food so he isn't Boltons guest, serverd Freys Pies to Freys but did not kill them in WF, which isn't his any way.
