The Elder Scrolls Online Marriage Guide – How To Get Married

Getting married is a fun aspect of the Elder Scrolls Online. While many people argue that since games are meant for fun and peace of mind, there should be no in-game marriage; others are worried whether gay marriages are allowed or not?

All your queries will be entertained in our marriage guide. And please, do consider the comments section as a matrimonial zone and don’t hesitate to hit up someone or present your own proposal.

If by any means, we could hook up two souls, we’d be more than glad. And please mention if you’re a Werewolf or a Vampire, we don’t want any trouble afterwards.

Now the first thing that you ought to know is that you can only marry other Human Players. This makes NPCs, Horses, and other creatures of Tamriel – well, slightly not up-to-the-mark.

Once you have found your perfect soulmate, you’ll require an item called Pledge of Mara. This item is only required by one player. Your marriage ceremony will take place by initiating Ritual of Mara at the Shrine of Mara. These shrines can be found in all the major cities of Tamriel.

Aldmeri Dominion: Auridon (Vulkhel Guard) and Grahtwood (Elden Root)
Daggerfall Covenant: Daggerfall (Glenumbra) and Wayrest (Stormhaven)
Ebonheart Pact: Davon’s Watch (Stonefall) and Mournhold (Deshaan)

Now, let’s talk about how to obtain Pledge of Mara. To acquire this rare item, you’ll have to spend around $79.99 in real life. This will get you an Imperial Edition which comes with this in-game item. Pretty convenient, isn’t it?

Marrying in TESO comes with benefits as it provides both partners with a 10% Bonus XP, as long as they’re Online and wearing the wedding ring called Ring of Mara, which will have their names engraved on it. Cute!

Although I don’t see any fitting reason for this, but you just cannot get yourself a divorce or leave your partner by any means. It’s a matter of life, and the gods take it very seriously!

There’s a little loophole that you can exploit to get a divorce and that is: marriages are tied to your character, not your account. So you can delete your character and be done with it! As for the Pledge of Mara, it cannot be used twice. Better ponder a lot before taking any step.

But then again, why get separate when you can get married more than once? Yes, polygamy knows no boundaries in Tamriel. Although you can only use your ring once, other players can certainly hit you up (even if you’re already married). I need to try this soon.

Another thing I would like to know is whether or not you can have babies? That would be a nice little addition, no?

And finally, gay marriages are allowed. For more help on The Elder Scrolls Online, read our Crafting Recipes, Skyshards Locations and Skills Reset Guide.
