Question:

If a chosson did not fully understand all the details of the kesubah (spaced out/misunderstood what it says), but knows that if he would’ve understood what it said in it he still would have agreed to it, does he need to be nervous about the vailidity of the kesubah (the chosson did the kinyan sudar, but did not have custom to sign the actual kesubah)?

Answer:

He does not have to be nervous since he did a the kinyan sudar. It is preferable that the chosson know what it says in the kesubah, but even if he does know, it is still binding. The chosson does not have to listen to the reading of the kesubah during the chuppah, since it is already binding since he already did the kinyan.
