Skyrim Guide: How to Get Married

by Kyle Hanson


Skyrim Special Edition is bringing back a whole lot of memories for the five year old title. One of the things that many gamers looked forward to the most was the ability to get married in the game. Of course, with a game as big as Skyrim Special Edition, simply figuring out how this works is somewhat of a chore. We’re here to help though, so here’s our guide on how to get married in Skyrim Special Edition.

Luckily the process has remained unchanged in the intervening five years. All you need to get married in Skyrim Remastered is the Amulet of Mara. This necklace will betroth you to one of your companions. Of course, they need to be at least somewhat interested in you. To get them there, you’ll want to pay attention to them. Bring them along on your adventures (if they are a companion), talk to them often, and eventually almost any companion should show some interest.

The list of who you can marry, and what needs to be done to get them interested is extremely long. The best option is to choose who you’re interested in and actually talk to them a lot, this should give you an idea of who is available, and what you might have to do.

Anyway, once you have your mate prepared, you need that Amulet of Mara. You can find it randomly, or just head to Riften. Here you’ll find the Temple of Mara, and Maramel who you can purchase the Amulet from for 200 gold. Once you have it, just equip it to your character and speak with the person you wish to marry. If you’ve got a chance there will be a new conversation option to ask them if they are interested.

Head back to the Temple of Mara in Riften and you can start setting up the wedding. Go through with all the requirements and you will have your Skyrim Special Edition marriage all set up. If you want to back out and get a divorce later on you’ll need to do some pretty bad stuff. The only way out is to kill your spouse, so make sure you choose well the first time around.
