In order to get married in Skyrim, players need to acquire the Amulet of Mara. Once obtained, various non-player characters will have marriage options. These options only appear for characters that are not already married and are on good terms with the player.

  1. Buy the Amulet of Mara

    In Riften, a priest named Maramal is found in the Bee and Barb. Talking to the priest about marriage will prompt him to offer an amulet for the price of 200 gold.

  2. Find an eligible town resident

    Potential marriage partners are found throughout Skyrim. If the character is involved in a quest, that quest needs to be completed before marriage options will appear. The non-player character will consent if the player is on good terms with her.

  3. Arrange the marriage

    Travel to the temple in Riften and speak with the priest once more to arrange the marriage. The marriage must take place during the day. The player is asked to confirm his choice by selecting the “I do” option.

  4. Decide where to live

    Immediately after selecting “I do,” the player needs to choose where he wants his home to be. The house can be located on any property owned by him or his spouse.
