How To Get Married In Skyrim

By   /   4 years ago

In a city threatened by dragons, there is still place for love and romance. You can perform several side activities in Skyrim and one interesting activity is to get married. And yes, Same sex marriages are possible too.

In order to get married, you are going to need divine the divine “Amulet of Mara”. You can purchase the Amulet from Maramal. Maramal can be found in Riften in an Inn named “Bee and Brab”. You can inquire him about the marriage system in Skyrim and then buy the Amulet for 200 gold. Yes, that’s the price you will have to pay for the holy commitment.

The Amulet is basically a symbol that marks you as a person available for marriage. After equipping the Amulet, talk to any girl of your interest and if she is also interested, you will get extra dialogue lines leading to the proposal.

When the girl says yes, next thing you need to do is visit the temple and attend the marriage ceremony. Congratulations! you got married, in Skyrim i meant. You will get the achievement/trophy.

  • Claudia

    This is no big secret. I married Benor!!!

  • Nitrowing

    I married Avusa Sarethi, as I had my own house in Whiterun I decided that moving her from her farm was cruel.
    I followed her in to her farm house after the wedding, all the items have turned from red to white, including the bed but I can’t gain access to the house unless she walks in ahead of me – I just get a Lockpick option???

  • cDgTylerDurden

    GO play starcraft faggots

    • Been there, Done that

      and you should start playing skyrim, nerd. or if you’re too goddamn ashamed of a goddamn good game, start from something a little lower in the tier – sims, maybe.

      that should make it pretty even.

  • an actual female that plays the game

    im very disappointed that i cannot marry anyone of my own race. Im a Kijjtt or how ever it is spelled and i can get neither a husband or a wife of my own race then i refuse to marry i hate that very disrespectful that is.

  • Yukigo

    Ain’t nothing wrong with the yiff zone! *Grin*

  • Jony’s Ex’s Ex’s Ex

    Didn’t you have to come to my house? >:c

  • Signdowny

    who is that girl on the picture above?

  • AcidicWaste

    That would turn into the Yiffy zone XD

  • Melokia

    Hey….. That’s not very fair. I’m a wood elf and I wanna marry another wood elf but there’s none. And that’s not a chance in Hell I would marry one of those snobbish High Elves…. Very sad about that

  • Jony

    Fucking horny nerds

    • Jony’s Ex

      Jony you need to get a life. You have no clue and calling a game a nerd is just a hypocritical excerpt of your meaningless life. Burn in the hell you deserve.


      • Jony’s Ex’s Ex

        That wasn’t very nice, how about you come over my house and we have a little fun..? 😉

  • ben

    I killed my wife cuz i want to marry Mjoll the lioness but i cant remarry i have the amulet of mara but i dont get the dialog option (Xbox360)

    • StarSword

      You can only marry once, unless you do it on the PC in which case you can fix it with the console.

  • asdf

    check the temple where you got married she might still be there

  • valaway

    yea same for me i married cammila and now i cant find her…not in riverwood or riften. My buddy had the same thing happen to him as well…

    • Ali Asif

      Which residence did you choose to live in after getting married? Skyrim is plagued by some bugs though. This might be one of those…

      • yujin

        i chose whiterun

  • Hevak

    I would like to know exactly where to find aela’s house i cant find it whatsoever

    • AcidicWaste

      She’s actually a Companion so you can find her INSIDE Whiterun

    • StarSword

      Aela is in Jorrvaskr.

  • Dee-Dee

    So what – the Pretty Kitties don’t get love partners? Seems like every race but the Cats are represented in this list.
    Very sad…

  • yujin

    i married camilla and after i married her she suddenly disappeared. I cant find her in my house or in riverwood. any suggestions?

    • StarSword

      If you’re playing on the PC, open the console with the ` key and type player.moveto 13488 .


  • Korrlius

    To be honest I really was disappointed with the Skyrim population. I realise that Skyrim is mostly occupied by the Nord, I would have liked to see some more High Elves for marriage. Hell, I was hoping to see a few more High Elves in the game at all. I always felt like my house in Oblivion was really dull and hollow, because all you could have there was a maid, the adoring fan or whoever else, but never a spouse. Really hoping for some more in future dlc, but that’s incredibly unlikely.

    • AcidicWaste

      But at least you find out that the Adoring Fan is a badass assassin so it’s all good ;D

  • Leo Messi

    Maramal is not in the inn when I go there,do you know anything about changing this?

    • Tallon

      You can also find him in the Temple of Mara, also in Riften. In fact I’ve found him more often there.

      Also, a free Amulet of Mara can be obtained by doing a quest for One of the other Temple Workers, Dinya Balu, though the quest requires a fair bit of traveling.

  • Scott

    Uhm, what happens if one day you decide you don’t love each other anymore, or if you find a better potential pardner, can you get a divorce or do you just kill her off?
    If you do either, do they take the achivement award away from you?
    Uh, and what about kids? If you stay married will a family start suddenly appearing?
    And hey, if you do marry, can you get her to sign a pre-nup first? Hell, I’d hate to get married and then find out she’s been running a major credit tab with every merchant in town…

    • Zawad Iftikhar


      OK, to get rid of your wife, just don’t visit her for a while and your relationship will end.
