Skryim: How to get married

How to get married in Skyrim
Getting married in Skyrim might seem pointless but it’s not without its benefits.
Apart from unlocking an achievement, you’ll get someone to cook for you and even make money. We list all the possible characters you can marry and explain how to tie the knot in Skyrim.

How to get married in Skyrim
1. You’ll need to find an Amulet of Mara. The easiest way to get this is to head to Riften and buy it for 200g from Maramal. He can be found in the Bee and the Barb or the Temple of Mara.
2. Find your character of choice, wear the amulet and talk to them. If you’ve met their prerequisites, you’ll have the option to ask them to marry you.
3. Head back to Maramal at the Temple of Mara and explain you want to get married. The ceremony will take place there the next day between 6am and 6pm. Don’t miss it!
4. After the marriage your spouse will ask you where you want to live. You can choose to move into their house (if they have one) or move into a house you have already bought.
Congrats. You’ve unlocked the achievement and got yourself a partner. They can cook you meals, hold onto items and follow you around as a companion.

Dreamzs : Yes there is, there is a group that is wandering around, selling things and studd, they are travelling a lot, but sometimes this group is near the White Run. I mean, before you enter it, before even walking along the first towers you see. They are there sometimes, it’s one of theirs points to camp actually. And there are 2 women I think : )

Men can marry men and woman can marry woman
Only way to divorce is to kill your spouse
Before the 1st update you could marry again, Don’t think you can now but you’d have to follow up on the update information
They won’t sleep in the same bed as you as they are nearly always awake

Yes, a woman can marry another woman. I found all the guys too ugly or stupid and marries Ysolda. So she’s making me food right now, and calls me ‘my love’, and I keep traveling and feel (seriously!) a bit ‘scared’ when she called me love…I was thinking oh god no…what have I done…xD

k.k

how to find rich man
Guest

We must try to preserve the happy medium, for how to find a man there is no
way in which he has built into his character
have brought him there, and what he gains to-day he will lose to-morrow.
A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and the mountains of sorrow and despair.
Give up that narrow cramped self that seeks to render all things subservient to
its own petty interests, and you may come to think that how
to find a man I’m the.
