Marrying Obtaining the Amulet of Mara An Amulet of Mara can be bought from a priest named Maramal for 200

GoldIcon . He can be found at either the Bee and Barb or the Temple of Mara in Riften. Can be found as random loot. Can be found in a tent on a beach north of Dawnstar directly behind the Dawn star Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary. Received for completing The Book of Love questline. Marriage must still be discussed with Maramal before proposing, if the amulet is obtained without talking to him first. Proposing Maramal must be spoken to about marriage in Skyrim before any dialogue related t o the Amulet of Mara shows up. The new dialogue is unlocked with certain NPCs if the player is both wearing the amulet and has met the requirement relating to t hem, usually a quest. The Dragonborn can then express their wish to marry the pe rson. Once that is done, they can speak to Maramal at the Temple of Mara about a rranging the wedding. Wedding Ceremony The time to start a ceremony takes approximately 24 hours. Maramal alludes to th e ceremony time being constrained between dawn and dusk, however the ceremony ca n happen at any given hour of the day. During the ceremony the player has one la st chance to affirm the marriage before the ceremony proceeds. NPCs for whom the player has previously completed quests may appear at the weddi ng ceremony as guests. If the player already owns any houses, then the correspon ding housecarl(s) will also be present. If the player misses his Wedding Ceremony, they can approach the intended partne r and ask for another chance. Maramal will then agree to host another ceremony, the next day. Married life MarriageSkyrim After the Marriage, (once you either track them down again, or catch them before they leave the temple), the partner will ask where the Dragonborn wants to live , giving him/her the choice between the partner's house or in the Dragonborn's h ouse, if applicable. The behavior of the spouse changes from the single character once married. Tone of voice and behavior changes and will often refer to the Dragonborn as "love" o r "dear" from that point on. However, if the Dragonborn marries one of his house carls, the Dragonborn will still be referred to as his/her Thane using subordina te dialogue. It should also be noted, that apparently only Followers get unique voiceovers fo r the married dialog. Many, if not all, NPC-only marriage candidates share a com mon voice, with the same lines. For females, it seems that Ysolda does the marit al line voiceovers, even if a different actress does the normal lines. This can be particularly odd if you console-hack a random female NPC to be marriagable, a nd you get a normally old scratchyvoiced woman talking like a much younger woman . Even some Followers such as Jordis, seem to share the voice lines. See Voice C ast (Skyrim) for a reasonable guestimate of whether you're going to get the sam e person for a different spouse's voice. If the spouse is the Dragonborn's housecarl, "their house" is the applicable hou se of the Dragonborn that they are responsible for.

If the Dragonborn's spouse relocates to a different city from where they origina ted, to live in one of the Dragonborn's houses, the spouse may indicate that s/h e wishes to become a shop owner to keep occupied while the Dragonborn is adventu ring. If the Dragonborn wishes to relocate the spouse to a different home, (either ano ther one of the Dragonborn's houses or the spouse's own original home), this can be done so at any time via a dialogue option. Once a day, the Dragonborn can ask their spouse to cook something. The spouse wi ll make a homemade meal that increases the regeneration of magicka, health, and stamina. If the Dragonborn sleeps in the house with the spouse, the Dragonborn will recei ve a temporary bonus called Lover's Comfort that boosts the rate of skill-learni ng by 15% for 8 hours. However, this bonus cannot be obtained if Lover Stone is activated (a workaround can be used with the Aetherial Crown), or if the Blood R itual has been taken to become a Werewolf. If the DLC Hearthfire is available, marriage can also include children. The Drag onborn's adopted child will also be adopted by the spouse, as well as instantly move into the house where the Dragonborn's new son or daughter is living. This a dds another dialogue option with the spouse allowing the Dragonborn to ask how t he children are, it also adds generic dialogue to the child where an activity wi ll be mentioned that they both did together. Note: Because spouses act as vendors, the Dragonborn can buy and sell items from them. However, if the spouse is asked to follow the Dragonborn, the spouse will only sell items from his/her inventory until they part ways. Spouses only act a s merchants in the marital home, meaning items cannot be sold in a dungeon, to r educe the carry weight, for instance.
