Guide: Skyrim Marriage 'How-To' and List of Possible Spouses

One of the new features in Skyrim is the ability to get married. While you can't marry any individual that you meet, you can choose from over 60 characters.

While it may seem that getting married should be a super simple process (take Fable 3 for example), it's actually not. There are quite a few steps that you will have to take to make sure that your bonds of matrimony are valid.

Listed below is a brief guide on how to get married, along with a list of every character available to share your vows with. Isn't marriage beautiful?

Steps to get married:

1) Head to Riften and check the 'Bee and Barb Tavern' or the 'Temple of Mara'
2) Once there, speak with Maramal the Priest.
3) Ask for more information about the 'Temple of Mara'
4) Now ask for marriage works
5) Purchase and 'Amulet of Mara' for 200 gold pieces
6) Wear the necklace via the 'Apparel' menu
7) Now that you are wearing this, find someone from the list below that you want to marry
8) Once they show interest, say 'yes' and go speak to Maramal the Priest again
9) Attend your wedding the following day
10) Choose which house you want to live in and congratulations!
