Temple of Mara Skyrim

After describing what are the advantages of getting married in Skyrim, I would say that you are ready to learn how to start your wedding.

To do this, you need to get 200 pieces of gold (playing Skyrim you will soon reach this sum), go to Riften, the capital of the fiefdom called The Rift and enter the Mara temple. At this point, talk to the priest Maramal and complete his dialogues to get more information about the wedding. In particular, you will have to select the item “I want to buy a Mara Amulet (200 pieces of gold)“when this appears on the screen. In this way, you will get the object Mara amulet, necessary to proceed with the wedding on Skyrim.

Once this is done, go to the character you want to marry and talk to him. At some point in the dialogue, a phrase such as will appear on the screen You like me, don’t you? or similar: select the latter and you will have chosen your soul mate.

Next, you have to go back to the Maramal priest to the Mara temple and talk to him about the wedding arrangements. In this case, there will be no more gold to spend, since the ceremony can be organized totally free of charge. In particular, you must select the item “I would like to organize a temple wedding ceremony”, available among the various dialogues of the priest Maramal.

After that, you will have to attend your wedding ceremony, which will be held the next day or a few days later. In short, you will have to wait a few hours of play before you can proceed with the wedding, but you should not have particular problems presenting on time.

At this point, re-entering the Mara temple, the ceremony will start and you can choose between the voices “I want it, now and forever” is “Stop the ceremony, I can’t keep going”. Clearly, by choosing the first you will get married, while pressing on the second you can rethink and change your consort.

Remember that during the game, it will no longer be possible to change your soul mate, if not resorting to some tricks, which I recommend avoiding if you want to maintain a “pure” gaming experience and have fun in the way the developers have thought Skyrim.

Mjoll The Lioness Skyrim

In any case, I remind you that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim also allows you to form pairs of same-sex characterstherefore it is possible to marry both women and men NPCs. However, my advice is to get married with Aela the huntress, character very good in combat, or with Camilla Valerius, since she is a trader and will stay at home guaranteeing you the relative advantages.

In any case, the most common result is that the spouse opens a shop and guarantees you 100 Septim and cooks one energy meal per day. In short, the only factor to consider is his skill in the battlefield, in case you want to take him with you to the battlefield.
