Re: Why doesn't T'Pau tell Kirk the fight is to the death?

Another in-character reason is that T'Pau thought it was blazingly obvious that when you fight the groom at a wedding to take possession of his bride, you'd better kill him. It would have struck her as silly, as having to spell c-a-t, to mention that the fight is to the death. "This is for all the marbles. Aren't weddings done like this on every planet?"
