    I think killing Ned would have been easier. I just can't see Ned being sent to the Black with everyone thinking he was a traitor. Thorne would have constantly abused him as would the other men judged by him. Unless Cersei had both Sansa and Arya (which was part of the plan). It didn't stop Robb from attacking Joffrey's armies either.

I always wondered how that would have worked. How do you prevent a man from marrying and having children when he is already married and at the head of a great family? What would happen to Catelyn? Would their marriage be annulled, and if so, would all of the Stark children suddenly be declared illegitimate? If all of the above are true, Ned taking the Black would have been worse than Ned dying. It would have been the end of the legitimate Stark line. Ned would probably rather die than have his family line end with him.

No, I don't think taking the black stops your existing family being legitimate. Not sure though, but I don't think it's retroactive. The point of taking the black is individual penance and serving the realm.
