And how do you marrye Aela the Huntress,can you tell me exactly what to do?


On November 12, 2011 at 6:18 pm

Is that a complete list? I want my wood elf to marry another wood elf!


On November 12, 2011 at 8:02 pm

In this game can have spouse more than 1? O.O


On November 12, 2011 at 9:31 pm

I marry them and then kill with my “Finger of the Mountain” spell… before my hours are up, i will attack all holds and kill everyone (:


On November 12, 2011 at 9:50 pm

who is that girl in the picture ? Can she be married?


On November 12, 2011 at 10:19 pm

why are none of the chicks hot!!!!!!!


On November 12, 2011 at 10:31 pm

I was wondering the same thing, who is the girl in the picture in this article? She is one of the only fairly attractive girls I’ve seen.


On November 12, 2011 at 10:35 pm

witch 1 is she?


On November 12, 2011 at 10:46 pm

the ckick in the picture is in riverwood at the inn not sure if you can marry her…


On November 12, 2011 at 11:12 pm

hmm. looks like kajiits have commitment isshues. Anyway. can anyone find a pic of sheeva?


On November 12, 2011 at 11:13 pm

That chick isn’t in river wood your thinking of Delphine that isn’t her


On November 12, 2011 at 11:28 pm

Noooooooooo! I can’t marry Illia who I met at Darklight Tower :( ive already had so many adventures with her!


On November 13, 2011 at 2:38 am

How the hell do you marry Lydia? Does it appear later in the main quest or something her marriage option? Cause i got the Whiterun house + Amulet of Mara.

I’m either interested in her or Aela (huntress from companions), but i like Lydia more, she’s better fitted for my “ultimate-firstplaythrough-good guy”.

Or better yet, are there hotter/better chicks then Lydia for a good-guy walkthrough.

Chicks i already confirmed are 100% marriagable=

Jenessa (merc in whiterun)
Temba Wide-Arm (Ivarstead)
Camilla Valerius (Riverwood)
Uthgerd (whiterun)

Checking right now -> Aela (joined the companions)
Jordis the swordmaiden (doing quests for the jarl of Solitude, the widow of the murdered king of Skyrim)


On November 13, 2011 at 4:32 am

There is a girl who is pretty in whiterun named something grey mane lol but she can’t be married:/


On November 13, 2011 at 6:17 am

So far the only attractive one I found was Muiri. I’m pretty upset with the selection, there mostly not very attractive and the selection is limited. No khajiit or wood elves was a really bad decision. I can marry an ugly orc or a lizard but not a cat woman or little elf? Bethesda!!!!! I should have seen it coming. I also can’t find a few of the women on the list including Uthgerd who never seems to return to her house.


On November 13, 2011 at 7:03 am

how do you get shahvee to marry u?


On November 13, 2011 at 8:12 am

Could anyone tell me who the woman in this picture is?

Kevin Hudson

On November 13, 2011 at 8:13 am

Hey guys, i need advice, how do i get Shahvee to marry me? im wearing the amulet and all she says is like “Im so happy” etc.

Oliver Mouritzen

On November 13, 2011 at 9:20 am

Can you get a divorce? :D


On November 13, 2011 at 12:25 pm

The chick in the picture is Olfia Gray-Mane from Whiterun and she is NOT marryable…(marriageable??? wtf ever)


On November 13, 2011 at 2:02 pm

Yeah you guys think the chicks are unattractive? Try finding a good looking male. That’s way harder. Us girl-gamer minorities are s.o.l when it comes to finding an attractive husband. Think about that next time you complain about how all the chick characters are ugly.


On November 13, 2011 at 2:39 pm

I agree with Hazlitthefire!!! The guys I’d like to marry I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to. And most the guys ARE ugly with the women your just being picky. Like Brynjolf. I’m feelin him but pretty sure its never gonna happen :(


On November 13, 2011 at 3:16 pm

Well I agree there all pretty ugly for the most part. What bothers me is how there are perfectly attractive characters in the game with no essential role and yet you can’t marry them. It’s like they went out of there way to make sure we are unpleased with the selection. I know bethesda was never good at making cool companions but come on.


On November 13, 2011 at 3:28 pm

I’m rather partial to Athis myself – sure, he’s a dark elf and I’m a wood elf but the first time I ran into him he really caught my attention. So once I get this amulet – Athis, Watch Out! :P


On November 13, 2011 at 3:35 pm

The girl in the picture isn’t olfia grey mane… She has grey hair


On November 13, 2011 at 4:02 pm

luckily Im a girl who likes girls so I’m marrying a girl :3 Not wasting my time with any of those uggo dudes.


On November 13, 2011 at 5:52 pm

Farkis is the only attractive male marriage option i’ve encountered so far. But i can’t get him to marry me for the life of me. I’ve done his little side missions 6 or 7 times, i’m thinking i may have to go further in the companions chain to get him to love me. (i’m on the quest to go kill the grey witches).


On November 13, 2011 at 6:33 pm

Can somebody tell me is there is a blonde girl I can marry? I do not want to search for all these people.


On November 13, 2011 at 6:40 pm

Apparently if you marry a girl/man that wants to become a shop keeper you get a profit out of his/her income :)

Im doing that.. dont care how they look ;)


On November 13, 2011 at 6:53 pm

@James I have the same problem, only mine is with Sven XD


On November 13, 2011 at 6:59 pm

@ colt,

you can’t marry farkis because he is murdered in the companions quest. Brutally slaughtered. So enjoy him while you still can, or don’t progress further if you want him alive. :3


On November 13, 2011 at 7:15 pm

my wife never came home


On November 13, 2011 at 7:35 pm

The prettiest one I’ve found is Ysolda. But I really wanted a warrior, wild girl, like Lydia. Not a merchant girl that may become fat and flacid in the future. Lydia or Aela are pretty much guaranteed to stay fit and good looking forever because of their warrior nature. Or can get a premature death, but that’s hard when they are nearly immortal.


On November 13, 2011 at 7:36 pm

How do you marry Orla, in the Temple of Dibella? I can’t seem to get to her even to see what she looks like because Senna says they are not to be disturbed.


On November 13, 2011 at 7:36 pm

Brynjolf! I agree I would marry hiim in a second if I could. He’s got that mysterious thing going on. Srsly though if Brynjolf is unavailable and Farkas ends up dieing I’ll probably just end up marrying a girl because I can’t find any other interesting male characters to wed. :p


On November 13, 2011 at 7:36 pm

If you want a blonde girl look for Muiri I believe. Shes the only one I could find that was actually pretty. I was hoping someone knows a bit about homes. If I marry someone and buy a better house later can I make them stay at the new house? If so how?


On November 13, 2011 at 8:06 pm

It’s easier for my orc…I likes me them dark elves…


On November 13, 2011 at 9:17 pm

I feel like the least personable who plays this game. None of the marriable women will like me even with the amulet, and I’ve haven’t had a companion yet either. I guess I’m doomed to quest alone.


On November 13, 2011 at 9:19 pm

Camilla Valerius is cute tho, did u see her red lips…?


On November 13, 2011 at 9:32 pm


Farkas doesn’t die during the Companions quests. He survives and you can marry him once you’ve completed all the Companions main quests – help Aela The Huntress to move the Companions quests forward.

Spoilers follow:

The Leader of the Companions ends up dead, as well as the Companion who hangs around Aela. I can’t remember his name, but I’m fairly certain it started with S. But Vilkas and Farkas definately survive.


On November 13, 2011 at 9:37 pm

damn i completed the whole thieves guild quests just so i could marry vex and now i find out i cant …


On November 13, 2011 at 11:14 pm

I got married and then I killed does anyone know how to get remarried?


On November 14, 2011 at 1:31 am

Okay I have the amulet but it’s not giving me the dialog for Athis to marry me what am I doing wrong!!!!!

Sad Panda

On November 14, 2011 at 2:54 am

I finally make it into the Thieves Guild and there she was. Vex…offsetting the makeshift underground bar caked with centuries of sewer filth with her skin-tight armor and radiant blonde hair. Our eyes met, and I was paralyzed with the thought of taking her home to act out volume 2 of “The Lusty Argonian Maid”.

I cried for 14 hours and jumped off of the Dragonsreach tower after seeing this list.

…In all seriousness, I think our characters have enough stress in their lives already. Lydia is just my pack mule


On November 14, 2011 at 6:10 am

if only you could marry sapphire ( hottest in the game) she’s in Riften either in Bee and Barb or Ragged flagon or even Vex in the Ragged Flaggon. Btw you need to be in the thieves guild to visit Ragged Flaggon or at least start the quest


On November 14, 2011 at 7:50 am

Vorstag is hot and he’s all mine.


On November 14, 2011 at 9:34 am

I want to marry Lydia! I hope they fix that glitch in the first patch…many MANY people are complaining about it so, it may get noticed.


On November 14, 2011 at 11:42 am

In order to marry any of the Companions, you have to finish their quest in which (to complete what one of the individuals above mentioned) Skjor and Kodlak die. As soon as you free Kodlak’s soul, the Companions are open to marriage.

I tried Lydia, but there’s apparently a glitch with her. So I went with Aela the Huntress – how is she NOT attractive?! She’s the hottest in the game. And she makes me 100 gold a day. And kills things when I ask. And still gives me quests. Wives are niceee.


On November 14, 2011 at 12:36 pm

I’m a female Khajiit. I’ve tired to accomplish tasks/quests with several of the females eligible for marriage (I am wearing the damned amulet) but I don’t get any dialogue options for marriage. I can’t get Muiri to even talk to me! LOL :-D


On November 14, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Really pissed off that my pretty female Khajiit can’t get together with Kharjo. D< I'll have to settle with just having him as my follower!

…. But I'm noticing a trend here, all the attractive people are mostly taken or unavailable. Bethesda! There is such a thing as too far when emulating real life XD (A little courting would've been fun too).


On November 14, 2011 at 1:16 pm

I want to marry Lisette. The white haired bard in solitude tavern. But i see they didnt put the option…


On November 14, 2011 at 1:39 pm

Do you have to marry? It seems so restrictive. Could you just have sex with them all like that dude in The Witcher?


On November 14, 2011 at 3:02 pm

How do you marry Senna?


On November 14, 2011 at 3:14 pm

How do you marry Ghorza? and where do you find her in markath?


On November 14, 2011 at 4:25 pm

Is this list complete???


On November 14, 2011 at 4:46 pm

Couldn’t find myself a nice Blonde Nord chap to shack up with, so have settled for a Nord Blacksmith. Just as well I’m an attractive Blonde Nord chap myself.


On November 14, 2011 at 5:08 pm

Not a single Khajiit to marry? WTH Bethesda?! Does anyone know of a mod that can let you marry anyone?


On November 14, 2011 at 5:37 pm

mfw everyone making a big deal about it, its a nice feature but dont go ape over it, furthermore why cant u have kids it boggles me


On November 14, 2011 at 6:41 pm

Wow, the Comments are fascinating. How Fun.. Very amusing article and content. Thanks.


On November 14, 2011 at 6:51 pm

Uh… How does I court Shahvee. The only option i got with her is “Are you always so happy?”. Pissing me off man… I need me some Argonian tail… what can I say, I’m a scaly…


On November 14, 2011 at 7:04 pm

Vex is for sure the most attractive chick Aela the Huntress a close second!


On November 14, 2011 at 7:36 pm

yea how do you marry Senna all she does is talk about dibella or what ever it is and then calls you hansom.


On November 14, 2011 at 7:39 pm

Noooooo i cant marry Lydia, we had so many adventures together!


On November 14, 2011 at 8:15 pm

Hard for a girl to find a good catch in Skyrim, but I settled with Vilkas! However I don’t like the fact that your spouse can die so quickly and then that’s it. Is there any console command to make the companion “essential” like it was in Oblivion?!

D Hit

On November 14, 2011 at 11:17 pm

camilla valerius is by far the hottest chick, all the other ones r either hella ugly or so so. shes in riverwood and all u have to do to marry her is the golden claw side quest, ur welcome haha. what sucks is that theres so many other attractive npcs, but u dont get the option to marry them, whats wrong with u bethesda?!

Sad Panda

On November 15, 2011 at 12:36 am

Wow…Lydia? People are actually complaining about not being able to marry her? Trust me, Bethesda is doing you all a big favor by not allowing you to get with her…

I wanna stab her every time she gives me attitude about “carrying my burdens”


On November 15, 2011 at 3:44 am

I whent for Aela the Huntress as Sapphire and Vex are not up for grap “yet”


On November 15, 2011 at 4:45 am

@Sad Panda Clearly Lydia is one of the best choices for marriage. She IS hot – visually and verbally – and you can marry her. I also wanna marry her – very, very much so x.x. Oddly enough, Aela the Huntress is second on my list, much like other people.

Lydia is a Housecarl. Every Housecarl is marriable, Lydia just so happens to be bugged. I have the Official guide (though it doesn’t mention bugs).

Aela comes up to you after a fight with a Giant, offering you to try joining the Companions. She is also the quest giver for the quest that lets you contract Lycantrophy (Companions quest line). And since I wanna be a werewolf for the rest of the game after, I really want to marry her in replace of Lydia.


On November 15, 2011 at 4:48 am

BTW, I don’t know who that is, but the woman in the picture is not Olfina Grey-Mane.


On November 15, 2011 at 5:56 am

Can someone post a link to a picture of “Iona” and “Anwen” please. Couldnt find it in the internet. many thanks

Tiger Cub

On November 15, 2011 at 6:29 am

Not one! Not one single khajiit female that you can marry! I wanted to see my little tiger cub! now I cant unless I want to make a female khajiit now! Come on Bethesda, there cant be at least one? Im thinking that either they dont like the way that the khajiits turned out (wood elves too, but I would rather have a khajiit), or they just hate cats.

11 Times

On November 15, 2011 at 7:38 am

:( Aww. . . . I was hoping Ulfberth War-Bear in Whiterun was single. He’s dreamy.

Or alternatively, at least a fellow Redguard . . .


On November 15, 2011 at 7:58 am

It must kind of suck to be a guy in this game as far as marriage potentials go, because I found the hottest husband in all the land ;)


On November 15, 2011 at 8:07 am

I married Senna and she simply exits the temple at the end of the ceremony and disapears… I bought a house and she’s not coming. I cant find her in the temple either… How do i find her / divorce her so i can marry another women?

Somebody answer please or link to a detailed article about skyrim marriage functions.



On November 15, 2011 at 8:08 am

anyoneknow if babette the un-child is mariagable


On November 15, 2011 at 8:26 am

Ok, whoever experiences the bug of your partner disapearing after the wedding, you can jsut travel / sleep / wait and then come back to the temple and she/ he will be there :)


On November 15, 2011 at 9:45 am

lo, anyone else married Orla? and does anyone else have the problem where she wont leave the temple? its proving really ing annoying, plus for some reason she wont follow me either.


On November 15, 2011 at 9:50 am

No Khajiit to lull me to sleep with his sultry voice, No Kodlak to speak words of wisdom to me. And when I thought I had finally found my (possibly more shady) other half, Jaree-Ra betrayed me in the worst of ways.

What’s a girl to do? I am destined to walk these harsh lands alone. :|


On November 15, 2011 at 10:13 am

Lisette the bard in Solitude is my favorite but not available … boo. My main character married Aela the Huntress and we live together in my Whiterun home.

My other character married Sylgja – Nord, found in Shor’s Stone. I felt sorry for Sylgja as she is cute-ish, young, and poor and was injured in a mining accident. But now she still walks around the house in her filthy clothes with a ming pick on her hip… sheesh.

Theres an idea for DLC… the wife pack… hehe. Make more npcs up for marriage as well as new wife additions and marriage features.


On November 15, 2011 at 10:56 am

Can you have sex with them? Does it show it like Dragon Age or is it like Fallout where it’s black and you just hear moans? Because you can have children right?

I want to marry and guy AND a girl! I want a child but I want a woman too! Is there anyway to do that?


On November 15, 2011 at 12:06 pm

How do you marry Senna?


On November 15, 2011 at 12:06 pm

Does anyone know exacly where Aela the Huntress lives?


On November 15, 2011 at 12:42 pm

no kitty to marry that just sucks -.-


On November 15, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Ok, why are there no male redguards!? WTFUX! Thanks, bethesda, I’m a girl but you’ve failed at giving me good male options. So I started looking at girls…only one I like is Lydia, who apparently can’t be married! FAIL!


On November 15, 2011 at 2:27 pm

Marriage would have been an interesting part of this game if the companions had more personality than a rock.

I thought Bethesda took a nice step forward in New Vegas with companions; they were well-acted, had reasonably long personal quest chains, a fair amount of commentary to make, and would say something to you every once in a while when just walking around. I had hoped that they’d build on that, so that this TES game wouldn’t feel as soulless as Oblivion was. Sadly, they did not, and as a result your followers (a better word for them than companions) don’t ever feel like anything more than fancy mannequins

I’m not sure how one could ever get attached enough to one of them to WANT to marry one for any reason other than gits and shiggles. It’d be like marrying a biped-shaped backpack.


On November 15, 2011 at 3:06 pm

For people having problems of dialogue options not showing: make sure you have talked to the priest in Temple of Mara, and that he has explained to you how marriage in Skyrim works. After that the dialogue options should be available when wearing the amulet (some restrictions might apply, like finishing the Companion quests before any of them are available)

I spent the longest time, wondering if my amulet is a wrong kind, before I went to the temple, got the story from the priest and boom! People wanting to marry me everywhere! It seems most companions in Skyrim are into kitties. And some seem to be desperate, wanting to marry a random Khajiit they’ve only talked to once (I’m talking to you, Tolvar!) xD


On November 15, 2011 at 3:11 pm

@Jason: It was not Bethesda who was responsible for that step forward in New Vegas. Bethesda provided the engine, ressources, tech, that sort of things. But the story and character building was by some of the guys who worked on the earlier Fallout games.

Bethesda is great at graphics and providing that big huge sandbox to work with. But they sadly miss out both in terms of story and strong characters.


On November 15, 2011 at 5:24 pm

Wow, really people? This isn’t Fable or something, aging does not happen in the elder scrolls, so kids would be impossible. I’m actually very glad they left the possibility of child raising out, that’d be stupid. It’s an RPG, but not meant for people to take playing roles so strictly.


On November 15, 2011 at 6:37 pm

To most of the people above’s laments:

“Addfac 1 – Adds the selected NPC to a faction (e.g. “addfac 19809 1″ adds an NPC to the marriage-faction, allowing players to marry this NPC)”

All is good in the world.


On November 15, 2011 at 7:06 pm

how about placing pics of each character name so we know who they are

Hulon Slither-tail

On November 15, 2011 at 11:05 pm

I hooked up with Sylgja from Shor’s Stone. Cute little brunette with a sweet voice and an awesome body. Too bad she always wears the Miner’s Clothes.

It suprised me that she was interested in me, since I’m a skinny green and red Argonian.


On November 15, 2011 at 11:08 pm

So. Apparently, Bethesda thinks it’s icky for us to want to marry Redguards, Khajiits, or Argonians.
One male and one female Argonian, one female Redguard, and NO Khajiits! That’s Racist! WTH? Screw it I married Ysolda, she’s down with the furries, she gives me money and she cooks. WTFE Bethesda.


On November 16, 2011 at 3:16 am

To marry the priestess in the temple of dibella (senna,orla and anwen) , you have to lockpick the inside door of the temple, then walk in and interrupt their ceremony, they will give you a quest to apologize and once you finish it, they will be available for marriage.


On November 16, 2011 at 7:58 am

i married Ysolda. when the marriage was over i left the temple. now i cant find her anywhere. not at my house in whiterun or the temple. any help on where she could be?


On November 16, 2011 at 8:36 am

Muiri won’t talk to me….. At all what do I do


On November 16, 2011 at 8:40 am

I want to marry Vex or Karliah :/


On November 16, 2011 at 9:44 am

i wanted Sapphire but you can’t marry her..sheesh…:/

settled with Ysolda(Whiterun) instead..i just wanted the extra income really :p


On November 16, 2011 at 9:49 am

This can’t be a complete list…I will try my absolute hardest to find some eligible bachelor(ette)s that aren’t on this list. I’ve got my eye on that Dark Elf in the Dark Brotherhood. Hope she’s into scales.


On November 16, 2011 at 10:57 am

So I finally get around to looking into the marriage thing and when I started playing I made some mental notes of possible candidates in my travels. I go get the amulet and so far every female I picked out isn’t available, total bummer Bethesda. Among the top ones was ophiela Gray-mane, and the inn keepers daughter in the dwarven city. Neither seem to be Npcs of any significance at all and they don’t seem to be spoken for. That being said we do have to give it some time. Elder scrolls is notorious for being rather buggy and skyrim has been the least buggy of the elder scrolls series. I’m sure there going to be patches that will give more marriage options eventually but the games only been out for like a week.


On November 16, 2011 at 1:29 pm

Lynly Star-Sung! WHY are the best characters not available..


On November 16, 2011 at 2:22 pm

No Khajiits?! WTF, I want to marry a kitty!


On November 16, 2011 at 5:03 pm

Give it another week, there will be marriage mods aplenty. You’ll be able to marry 24 women, “enhance” them, do unnatural things with them, and have daedric children. You know it’s true.

moshi the argonian

On November 16, 2011 at 8:13 pm

I want a khajiit, i think i will make a mod for this

Beowulf the strong

On November 16, 2011 at 8:43 pm

Guys, first, you have to talk to throe priest in riften and ask him how marriage works then talk to the person you want to marry while wearing the amulet.

I made a mistake, and fast traveled and couldnt get back in time for my wedding, and my saves were too late to go back, any way i can try to remarry ?


On November 16, 2011 at 8:49 pm

well a few things everyonce ina while i get a quest from the khajjit traders havent got one from a female khajiit thou which makes me mad cause i dont really want to marry outside my race but if i have to id rather go with an argonian at least there a beast race like me. oh and i dont no wat there name is but my gf married a male khajiit ill try to find out who he is for you girls in here


On November 16, 2011 at 11:19 pm

The elder scrolls wiki has the same list but better discriptions and tells you perks for most characters its not complete yet.


On November 17, 2011 at 2:41 am

i want to screw aela nice and proper. blood running hot? hell yeah!


On November 17, 2011 at 3:32 am

Is that a full list because i want to marry the bard in solitude the female one in the winking skeever, because she is the hottest girl i have found so far.


On November 17, 2011 at 3:47 am

I read the whole reason for there being no Khajiit or Bosmer marriages is because of their respective religious beliefs


On November 17, 2011 at 6:19 am

@Scottyw: In that case, we want an atheistic cat!


On November 17, 2011 at 10:31 am

No sex, no romance, no kissing, no hugging, no nothing. Your partner will however make food for you, and act as just a mercenary and not as a wife or husband. I felt a little down about the romance/marriage aspect of the game. Other than that Skyrim was great hands-down.


On November 17, 2011 at 11:55 am

For real it’s stupid there is like a list of 20 people you select from and it’s pretty much “wanna get married?” “ok.” THE END. I wanted to marry karliah. Cute dark elf with common interests. We both are in the thieves guild, we are both nightingales. We like takin stuff and stealing things and have been on many adventures together. But nope. I can only choose from a preset list of random bar maids that my character has 0 emotional connection with. Weak, Bethesda. Real weak.


On November 17, 2011 at 1:26 pm

Cant believe noone mentioned Mjoll the Lioness yet, shes super hot. Can you dress and undress your spouses though? She has really unattractive heavy armor on.


On November 17, 2011 at 2:28 pm

Actually i think Sylgja is the hottest


On November 17, 2011 at 3:57 pm

Well, I had given up on finding a good looking guy, and was going to marry Lydia if only because she already lives in my house and is almost immortal…but then I stumbled into a little town call Rorikstead…or something and there he was at the inn…Oh Erik… it was love at first sight.


On November 17, 2011 at 4:15 pm

Yeah, I married Orla from the Temple of Dibella. But I can’t get her to move out either…

She left immediately after I said “I do” and I found her back in the temple. I own a house in Markarth and other cities, and I keep asking her to move, but she won’t leave.

And there are no beds in the temple of dibella……. lol. guess that’s what I get for marrying a monk.


On November 17, 2011 at 4:31 pm

Why the hell can’t I marry Hadvar? He’s been hitting on me since the dragon attack at Helgen.. honestly, this isn’t just cruel to my character, but him too. He’s been sulking in the Sleeping Giant Inn in Riverwood since I bought the amulet, he’s clearly crushed.


On November 17, 2011 at 4:52 pm

For anyone asking… the girl u see in the first picture of this guida is normaly found wandering in the commerce circle on Whiterun (where u can find the general good shop) close to the entrance to Companions. and yes, she’s hot (in a nerd kind of way, of course)! :D


On November 17, 2011 at 5:14 pm

You people need lives. Go get a real girl, losers. TROLOLOLOLOL.


On November 17, 2011 at 6:14 pm

Sylgja is the best option from this dismal list IMO. She’s the most attractive of the bunch, with the small drawback of being in miner’s attire. She’s in a little village north of Riften.


On November 17, 2011 at 7:50 pm

I wanted Brynjolf so badly :< But I settled to debate between Farkas and Vilkas. Go go werewolves ;3


On November 17, 2011 at 8:13 pm

So,, this says you can ask your significant other to be your companion/follower. However, this is apparently not the case with Ysolda, who I actually WANT following me! In fact, I busted my ass for HOURS searching for Moonstone to make and fully upgrade her some Elven Armor, and making myself Dwarven armor so they’d match and I’d be wearing Heavy Armor and she’d be wearing Light armor – of course not check first if she could actually travel with me. Apparently,, she can’t. :’( Truly one of the saddest things to happen to me in this game, and I’m honestly thinking about just starting a new character b/c my WHOLE game plan involved adventuring with my matching-armored wife.
Also, is there any sexual intercourse? And if so, how…?


On November 17, 2011 at 8:52 pm

My wife don’t die. I married Mjoll the lioness her braveheart warpaint rocks. I take her health she goes to one knee and gets up. She tries to kill me actually cause I also killed her little weirdo follower


On November 17, 2011 at 11:19 pm


Did you read what I posted earlier, all you can do is marry a npc of your choice and the only option available after marriage is for them to make you food. No you can’t have sex with them, no you can’t kiss them, and no you cannot romance your partner regardless if your at your home or not. Bethesda butchered the relationship aspect of the game, so all you can do is use your imagination and pretend which I don’t have a good make-belief so I don’t even bother with marrying any npc in Skyrim.


On November 18, 2011 at 12:16 am

This is the most commented on article ever.


On November 18, 2011 at 5:01 am

I married Senna. Thought I was in trouble after I got into a drinking contest in Whiterun and woke up in the temple at Marcarth with my wife recriminating me for desecrating the temple. Still a little foggy on the details but I thing I stole a goat and proposed to some chick. Senna still loves me. I guess forgiveness comes with being a priestess.

My name is Dor Khan, Dragon Born. Im a powerful territorial Nord who don’t agree with those foreigners from hammer fell comming over and taking Nord jobs. Anyways in my past I’d venture the wilds of Skyrim slaying beasts and dragons. I have got quite a name for myself, I am respected throughout Tamriel. But that time is over I plan on Working the skyforge and settling down with a family. I have found a fitting bride also a strong Nord by the name of Muiri. But as the wedding was in action someone had dropped the body of my fellow companion Lydia off the roof, it laid the dry,bloodless,lifeless. My woman stormed out never to set eyes on me again. Now i seek REVENGE!!. Bethesda I’m comming for YOU!

That Guy Over There

On November 18, 2011 at 6:45 am

To marry Aela (It’s who I married), you need to beat the Companions’ questline. And if you still can’t do a few radiant quests for her and that should get her disposition higher.


On November 18, 2011 at 9:26 am

Hmmmm its not all that start a shop and you get a cut of income from it p day


On November 18, 2011 at 11:13 am

I married Aela, though Sapphire would have been my first choice. It would be nice, however, if you could cure her… While I know it doesn’t matter, it would be cool from a role-play perspective if she could get the buff as well.


I gave her a witch head and asked her to use the altar (where you can cure yourself), no luck.


On November 18, 2011 at 2:08 pm

Players can force the marriage dialog option to appear on NPCs by opening the console, targeting the desired NPC, and typing the command “addfac 19809 1″


On November 18, 2011 at 2:38 pm

Can you specify what you mean by “targeting the desired NPC”?


On November 18, 2011 at 2:44 pm

Nevermind you just have to click on them with the console open.


On November 18, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Too all those to whom this applies when you say “I Do” if your potential wife leaves before you activate conversation she will be gone for good.

Also only certain characters will follow you, certain being the ones with weapons and armor.

Also Muiri can only be married if you have helped her in the Dark Brotherhood questline, all of them require some form of quest so yeah.


On November 18, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Is there any way to re-marry? I married Benor and decided he wasn’t all that, so I killed him off. Is there any way to marry someone else?


On November 18, 2011 at 8:39 pm

Im stuck, I backed of the weeding at the last moment, 2 times when I went for my third wedding it wouldnt work, now the priest marma (or what ever)says before he can preform the ceromony I must work it out with my betrothed. I still have the quest to arrange the marrage but no one will even respond. any help?


On November 18, 2011 at 9:09 pm

Damn, I wanted to marry Aela.


On November 18, 2011 at 9:41 pm

It is really too bad that the characters are not as attractive as the ones in Dragon Age Origins. Plus the sex scenes were awesome! Bummer Skyrim…that’s all I have to say.


On November 19, 2011 at 12:24 am

I found the woman i want to marry and I set up the wedding but when i sit and wait at the temple for my wife to show up some ladys body pops up at the door with her cloths off and then it says failed to show up for your wedding it did this three times to me i kept loading and saving before this happens anybody know wat the issue is??


On November 19, 2011 at 12:27 am

Dead with her clothes off an everybody starts tripping out


On November 19, 2011 at 5:00 am

they say if you killed someone that the dead body appearing has to be hid somewhere out of sight
hope that helps didnt encouter the merriage yet


On November 19, 2011 at 6:44 am

That add to marriage tribe does not work for a lot of the characters, such as Lynly Star-Sung (AKA Svidi) from certain quest.


On November 19, 2011 at 11:03 am

so far from a role playing standpoint Aela is the only choice that makes some sort of sense as to why your getting married. If you do the companions questline you travel with her and if you chose to become a werewolf you drank her blood. I don’t think theres any other options out there that you actually have some sort of backround with for a reason you would get married. Ysolda for example ….zomg you got a mammoth tusk for me….we should get married -_- only other one I could see reasoning behind is Carlotta who has a kid and gets pestered by other men all the time but she would just be marrying you so other guys would stop asking…and she has baggage.


On November 19, 2011 at 3:23 pm


Not if you’re on the PC lol


On November 19, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Aw, you can’t marry Vex? That’s a shame, she’s definitely the hottest NPC imho.

Steven with the fro

On November 19, 2011 at 10:49 pm

i chose aela and i won’t lie,it’s pretty great..she was definitely my choice for hottest and coolest prospect,gotta love that hot redhead feistyness lol..we live a humble life in markrath and she bakes me things and all that but i can’t stand the lack of romance in all this.i mean where is the fun in getting hitched and then doing absolutely nothing…no kids,no affection,and barely any sign that she is different at all.all she ever does is sit in my friggin’ house and eat her friggin’ bread. i am definitely wanting for something interesting to come out of this already.


On November 20, 2011 at 1:39 am

I went with Senna. All the romantic talk she gave me after the first encounter with her. Plus she has a nice face.

However it does not really fell like a marriage. More of a chick I picked up to watch after the house and store. I mean really the only interactions I have with her, are the 3 orginal ones before I married her, Plus the give me 100 coin for tending the store, and cook me some food.

I guess games like The Witcher and Dragon Age have spoiled us in this department. Its kinda funny really. there are so many interactions with so many differnt NPC’s. Many of them more original. But for these main characters that you deal with all the time, practicaly no interaction. I mean really, I have more of an interaction with a city guard then Lydia. I really wish Lydia would mention stuff about whats going on around us ingame. This is where Dragon age really spoiled us. When your companions would go off on some random conversation in your travels.


On November 20, 2011 at 1:39 am

i love how superficial you all are. What a retarded thing for me to say! ;o

I was sad there weren’t any khajiits to marry. =/ I love them!

Personally i may go after the lioness, simply because she has the most awesome name. ^_^ And i like her story :X And she’ll set up shop and give me 100g/day


On November 20, 2011 at 7:10 am

Can you marry someone in a guild preferably the thieves guild????


On November 20, 2011 at 8:47 am

I’m completely in love with Mjoll the Lioness :-)


On November 20, 2011 at 9:37 am

It’s a descent first step for Bethesda. But they should really try to model the companion/marriage system after Bioware’s Dragon Age: Origins and Knights of the Old Republic series. The Mass Effect series handle’s romance/companions very well too.


On November 20, 2011 at 3:26 pm

I don’t think the marriage aspect should’ve been included unless you could interact with your spouse more as many people have said. One of my favorite things about Elder Scrolls games is the dialogue – I like hearing about Calcemo go on about Dwemer ruins and I often go out of my way to converse with random npcs in hopes a conversation will pop up. Which is one of the reasons I love Mass Effect.
So it really disappoints me that once you get married your spouse is like a talking oven; just cooking and giving you gold. I also wish more of the “eligible” characters had a story that would give you more reason to marry.

I say any of the companions make sense because you spend a lot of time together and save each other’s hides here and there. But why can’t you marry Hadvar? It’d make sense if the Dragonborn did since if you so chose he’s the one to save you in the beginning and ensures you have proper gear for your first trek to Whiterun and later he seems overjoyed to see you at Korvunjund. There should also be Bosmer and Khajiit you can marry it’d only be fair.

Over all though, Skyrim is excellent and this certainly doesn’t ruin it I just hope they read the feedback on the marriage aspect and tweak it for the next installment.


On November 20, 2011 at 8:12 pm

Hadvar was sending u to get your head cut.
all im sayin here


On November 20, 2011 at 9:53 pm

The console command “addfac 19809 1″ doesnt work on everyone does it?


On November 21, 2011 at 3:38 am

You can marry whichever non-essential npc you want by going on consol and target the npc, then write “addfac 19809 1″.
This will give you max disposition with the npc(which makes him like you) and if you carry the amulet of mara, gives you the option of marriage. This works with most of the non-essential npc’s, though i’ve encountered npc’s which it has not worked with and some npc’s that after doing a small quest with them gives you the option of marriage after using this code. I am currently married to Annekke in darkwater crossing (not on the marriage list btw). ENJOY!


On November 21, 2011 at 3:39 am

You do not want uthgerd or whatever. u won’t find her in her house you got to beat up the ugly at the bannered mare and woooh she is an ugly brute. Talk about beating the crap out of her to get her interested in you (the type that likes abuse!)only chicks lol!


On November 21, 2011 at 3:47 pm

PROTIP for everyone

Marriage to all the popular npc’s with the console code “addfac 19809 1″
may also require an additional code of “setrelationshiprank player 4″ to raise their deposition towards you before the marriage option will appear.
Don’t forget to equip the Amulet of Mara also etc etc

For many of the npc’s you can also force the option of following you to appear with “addtofaction 5c84d 1″
Remember also to raise their deposition as needed etc etc


On November 21, 2011 at 3:57 pm

The bard in the winking skeever in solitude that is all … boo she isnt on the list


On November 21, 2011 at 6:30 pm

skyrim set the standards to high. please what man is going to clean, cook and bring home money.

PS: my boy friend left me, he stated his wife in the game was better. thanks alot.


On November 22, 2011 at 2:13 am

i just realised i have a much more sucessful life in skyrim than IRL…

If you are like me and want to marry Lydia, theres a glitch according to the wiki where no matter what you do you cannot marry her.

Unless you are on pc in that case it can be bypassed by using the console, clicking on her then typing Addtofaction 19809 1. Then talking to her with the Amulet of Mara equipped.

in the meantime i suggest you wait for a patch.

On November 22, 2011 at 4:37 am

I think its safe to say that marriage will be a fixture for all Bethesda games to come. I also think Bethesda woulda given more marriage options if they coulda predicted how much buzz it would generate.

@Lydia lovers. Marry someone else and then get some pillow time with Lydia in some random cave.

On November 22, 2011 at 4:57 am

Where is Red Lucy when you need her?! My vote is for Obsidian handling the romance, got that Mr Howard?


On November 22, 2011 at 5:44 am

Looks-wise the choices are better for people who want to marry a female. The men are mostly old and/or hideous. One of them looked like Riff Raff from Rocky Horror. I chose Vorstag who seemed the best of a bad bunch.

The creepiest thing of all is that Lydia still hangs around in the bedroom all the time, and I inadvertently created a character who looks like her twin sister.


On November 22, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Yeah I agree, the men in Skyrim are pretty nasty looking. I stomached looking at Balimund in Riften, just made me sick. Wish they created some good looking guys, instead of having them look like Chewbacca.


On November 22, 2011 at 3:16 pm

These comments are the best lol kept me entertained through nearly a whole winnie the pooh movie!
All the best guys in the game you can’t marry
I wanted Brjnyolf (sp) from the thieves guild, he has the sexiest accent ever! Dev from the thieves guild is also a sad face un marry-able character.. think I might find me a hubby from the companions in Whiterun.

For those that wanted to know: there is no divorce in the game and if you kill your spouse, you won’t be allowed to get re married. My suggestion is to take them out with you and let them get killed (but you can’t help with them dying other than just letting it happen)


On November 22, 2011 at 4:30 pm

omg, i have been wearing the amulet for ever and no one will talk about marriage or anything down that line….Help


On November 22, 2011 at 4:31 pm

yea the companions have the best looking girls and guys!


On November 22, 2011 at 4:37 pm

Everyone trying to find an eligible bachelor in this game, I sympathise. It became so much trouble (and I got temporarily bored of smiting undead) that I decided to compile a comprehensive list of romance options in Skyrim. It’s not finished yet but I have found nearly all of the marriageable men at this point and well, the future’s not very bright. My personal recommendation based purely on aesthetics is to purchase Vlindrel Hall in Markarth & become Thane where your lovely housecarl will be Argis the Bulwark. If you don’t mind your men a bit scarred (shame about the eye) and kind of stoic (nice voice though) then I’d say he’s the best so far. Also, besides “Love” he also calls you “My Thane” which certainly doesn’t hurt ;P
Interesting note: Most romantic/poetic proposition I have received (not that that takes a huge amount in this game) was from an ORC in a mining village just outside Markarth who uttered at least 2 full sentences on how my qualities made me attractive as a marriage partner.
Seriously Bethesda, would it have hurt to put a little more effort into this? This whole side of the game feels rushed and emotionless like it was written by a gang of giggling schoolboys who didn’t want to appear sappy in front of their peers. In fact I know schoolboys who could have made it less shallow and meaningless and they would have probably used the word ‘willy’ more than once.
Acts together please! We like our characters to be attractive, sensual and have development and depth. Demanding I know…


On November 22, 2011 at 6:00 pm

I wanted to marry the bard in Dawnstar. she is sexy as hell but she isn’t on the list. :/ Karina is her name I think


On November 22, 2011 at 7:47 pm

If I use my wife as fodder for the ebony blade, can I go get another?


On November 23, 2011 at 2:36 am

Bethesda are releasing a patch on the 28th Nov I think, there or there about sometime after thanksgiving.

So hopefully things like not being able to marry lydia will be fixed alongside the graphics when you install the game on xbox.


On November 23, 2011 at 1:11 pm

it doesen’t work for me. He wont sell me that amulett? whY?????

On November 23, 2011 at 5:26 pm

I married Aela but it was pretty damn stern its like im married to my stove with a cash register attached to it, I dont understand the concept of marriage in the game if im married to a stove. Dragon Age gave you some choices and a huge amount of convos with people


On November 23, 2011 at 5:29 pm

Allow me to put her dialogue,
Aela The Huntress
“Welcome home dear”

“Is there something you need?”

pssh..i married aela the huntress, why should i get ride of my werewolf blood when i got it from her anyway


On November 24, 2011 at 6:20 am

Answerer 1
If you own a PC, you CAN get remarried. Other systems cannot.

A) No courier will come to you and say you can remarry. Doesn’t work.
B) Marriage is a QUEST. Adding npcs to the faction 19809 through console does not work either!
Here is how you REALLY do it:
Open the console using the tilde (~) button. Type in “resetquest RelationshipMarriage”. Hit enter. Now, drop your amulet of mara or sell it. Now open console again and type “SetStage RelationshipMarriage 10″. Go back to Riften and talk to the guy at the Temple of Mara. He will start you at the buy amulet section and let you buy a new amulet. You can now marry again.

I don’t take credit for this, I found it on yahoo answers. It does work


On November 24, 2011 at 9:22 am

I married Mjoll the Lioness because she is ultra bad ass. Plus I like to see the strong willed women cook my meals for me and run a shop for me.


On November 24, 2011 at 12:35 pm

Theres this one girl in some town. Anyways she is by far the hottest girl in the game. She wears a revealing green dress and im pretty sure ive seen her in multple cities around Skyrim. And you cant marry her, but you will know who im talking about if you see her.

Anyways we all know Ysolda is the best. She reminds me of Leliana from Dragon Age. They should of just brought her to Skyrim


On November 24, 2011 at 5:45 pm


I have the most massive crush on Ralof. Why, Bethesda? WHY?!

And I really want a patch to fix this because I would feel bad if I did the console cheat xD Bioware has spoiled me for in-game romance, though.

(Also, Ralof’s silly Nord idioms/curses are the best)


On November 25, 2011 at 12:44 am

The most attractive by far is Muiri, however not being able to drag her around a companion is a bummer. On the other side, marrying a battle-tank She-Man is also not very appealing. So what I did, married the normal non-following woman and put her in her place in front of the stove and in bed. I then took the she-man as a companion and put her in her place, carrying my burdens and following my every command ;) .


On November 25, 2011 at 5:17 am

My very first marriage option for myself was Olfina Gray-Mane in Whiterun, unfortunanently there are 0 dialogue options :/. I did everything to make her like me! I helped all the people of her town, Whiterun. I fought for the Stormcloaks, the side she and her family supports in the war, made the Stormcloaks rule in Whiterun. Made her father Jarl! Became his thane! Which made her get some place in the castle aswell. I even rescued her brother all the way in the North-West from a keep! Still, I can’t marry her! (I got the Amulet of Mara and talked with the priest and all that, yeahh). So THEN I found out that she and Jon Battle-Born are secretly lovers! SO I cut Jon Battle-Born’s throat while he was sleeping in the middle of the night (there were no witnesses) waited some time for everyone to get over it and STILL I CAN’T MARRY OLFINA GRAY-MANE! :( , + In the patch/dlc they should really really improve marriage a whole lot. all the other stuff we need some dephth in the game, or however to put it :|


On November 25, 2011 at 8:53 am

In order to marry Senna or Orla at the temple of Dibella you have to break in and do the old lady’s quest.

“the only option available after marriage is for them to make you food. No you can’t have sex with them, no you can’t kiss them, and no you cannot romance your partner regardless if your at your home or not. ”

Clearly has no idea this is how it works in real life too.

For anyone that’s unsatisfied with Sylgia’s miner’s clothes, a master of pickpocket can pickpocket someone’s clothes off (which makes no sense. I mean, I know you’re THE master of pickpocketing but c’mon, how can you pull that off without the person noticing? XD I’m not sure if it’ll work on Sylgia, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t). I haven’t tried pickpocketing clothes ONTO a person yet, but it might work. Hell, just give it a shot, and worse comes to worst, you have a half-naked wife walking around your house ;D

And my only real complaint is that my cute little cat girl can’t marry a single Khajiit, male or female. I was kinda hoping she could marry J’sargo (or whatever his name is, the khajiit in the mages guild), but alas, she’s either going to stay single or she’ll have to wait for the patch.

PS. A few things about pickpocket, for those that don’t use it and don’t know about it. 1) It’s easy as hell to get up, 2) For anyone that wants more carrying weight and doesn’t want to get up fatigue (like me), pickpocketing has a perk that gives you 100 extra carrying lbs, and 3) I find it to be fairly useful. If nothing else, it makes for very fast level ups.


On November 25, 2011 at 4:20 pm

so how do I marry the children ? after all it is a medieval setting …. wink wink :D


On November 25, 2011 at 4:23 pm

also why the fuk cant I marry some khajiit cats?


On November 25, 2011 at 6:22 pm

Um, I find a ton of the women in this game to be really attractive, mostly because they are so freaking hard core. Mjoll the Lioness and Aela are awesome. I am a female gamer so I obviously have different tastes then you male gamers. Still, I say you got the better end of the deal. If I were to pick a male companion to marry, I’d be stuck with absolute CRAP choices. Mostly I’m just pissed that I can’t marry Faendal. He’s been such a distraction for me. I just LOVE him. I go hang out at his house and lose precious killing time, just cuz he’s got the sweetest voice. “Hello sister elf, so nice to see a friendly face…” AW. *sigh* So, if I can’t have him, I will marry Mjoll the Lioness and her and I will go on a killing spree, freaking bashing in the faces of every man in Skyrim, just because we can and we should. Hopefully their blood will be a balm for my ravaged and broken heart. No Faendal = angry pissed off love sick evil dark elf on a rampage. If you’re gonna give us choices, give us real choices Bethesda. NOT Benor. I mean come on, BENOR!?!?!, I killed him myself he was so freaking annoying. :-/ Where are the sweet nice guys (or should I say where are all the non-dark elves) like Faendal in this husband selection? I’m so angry now. It’s time for everyone in Skyrim to die. But elves are safe from my fury cuz elves are lovely. So why can’t I marry one???? (And no I don’t want a dark elf – we have bad attitudes, who needs that in a husband?) ;-)


On November 25, 2011 at 9:25 pm

Not too sure if anyone mentioned this, but the reason you cannot marry wood elves, or khajiit is due to the fact that they are of a different religion than the divines… I find this odd too, but that’s how it works.


On November 25, 2011 at 10:31 pm

An interesting note: I got the option to marry Illia after entering the cheat codes. It took several hours and happened randomly while doing a quest for the Gray-Mane’s, but I did get the option. Now I’m torn between J’zargo (since I’m khajiit) and Illia! T.T


On November 26, 2011 at 8:30 am

You guys are all a bunch of freakin s. It’s pretty damn obvious that Aela, Saphire and Vex are the three most bangable peeps in the province.

@ladyface hottttt


On November 26, 2011 at 8:28 pm

I’d marry Vilkas in a heartbeat if I wasn’t already married to some girl in Whiterun. Isn’t that horrible, I don’t even know her name. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to kill her then marry him. Would that work? I dunno, I’ll save before I try.


On November 26, 2011 at 10:42 pm

Senna was cute, sassy though :P I married her and thank goodness I saved before I did because she walked out before we were given our rings. I say Nord, or Imperial. I couldn’t find Viola, :(


On November 26, 2011 at 10:57 pm

my brother made a mod that allows you to do more things in marrige and alllow u can marry a anyone

Glitch – Anwen will not relocate if you marry her


On November 27, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Makes me sad how few of you mentioned Mjoll the Lioness.

She’s seriously the best choice besides maybe Miuri… or Sapphire. But Sapphire isn’t an option. Sad day. :(


On November 27, 2011 at 10:10 pm

No attractive males? Are you blind? There are lots of hot guys. Problem is that idiot girls these days think that wimpy pop stars like Justin Bieber are “hot” and don’t know a real man when they see one.

Can anyone tell me the name of the blonde nord on top of the page, or is she even a real character?


On November 28, 2011 at 10:32 pm


You can marry sapphir but shes hard to get.

Skyrim:Saphire. BE REALLY LUCKY. She is the hardest in the game to marry. You must be leader of the guild, and have 100 lockpick/sneak/pickpocket. You MUST have done all her side quest.


On November 29, 2011 at 4:06 am

I wonder when the religious fundamentalists will be calling for the game to be banned because it allows same sex marriage?


On November 29, 2011 at 2:34 pm

Oh Bethesda, you really need to put in more available male Khajiits,High Elves and Wood Elves…….. please!


On November 29, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Im a bit surprised noone has mentioned saadia yet. But maybe im just crazy, im drawn to her in some way…

Also, i would have totally done the same as her as to why those tossers were looking for her :)


On November 29, 2011 at 8:54 pm

Does anyone at all know if there is a chance you can divorce or something?


On November 29, 2011 at 9:47 pm

I got the amulet, found someone, and had the marriage. She said yes, I said yes… and she immediately proceeded to the door while I was stuck at the alter listening to what’s his face talk. I can’t find my wife at all now. She’s not where she used to be before the marriage, and she’s not at home. WTH? Is it possible for them to just take the ring and leave? Or is my game just being stupid?


On November 29, 2011 at 11:33 pm

I decided to marry the drunk, he won’t have any problems with me being the best thief and assassin. I do think Aela is the best looking female. For the guys I wish we could marry Cynric or Sven :) sigh.

On November 30, 2011 at 1:59 pm

Olfia Gray-Mane (the girl in the top photo) should be marriageable (is that a word?) because one of the early Companion quests is to save her from vampires in a cave. She owes you!!


On November 30, 2011 at 7:25 pm

Anyone know if they’ve fixed the bug with Lydia yet? And I don’t see why everyone thinks she’s annoying.


On November 30, 2011 at 9:12 pm

You should post pics (or at least links to pics) for each of them eligible spouses.


On November 30, 2011 at 9:41 pm

Skyrim’s characters are an improvement over the hideous, flat, cardboard, passionless, drones of Oblivion but not in a huge way. At least they can be called characters though. They ought to make relationships to characters (be it romantic or friendly) a bigger part of the game, like in Mass Effect. Strong characters are the main thing that gets us emotionally invested in stories.


On December 1, 2011 at 6:00 am

im surprised to not see too many people mention Muiri in their list lol.. she looks like one of the youngest and best looking to me. plus she gives you her “affection” after helping her through the brotherhood questline. Either her or Hroki seem the best to me, although im not 100% if Hroki can be married ill find out today though


On December 1, 2011 at 6:36 am

Hroki is sadly not even engageable on xbox360 =( shes by far the hottest character ive come across. For anyone looking for her she roams the markets as soon as you enter Markath. Shes got a blonde ponntail, cleavage revealing top, and one side of her dress practically shows an entire ass cheek lol


On December 1, 2011 at 6:08 pm

I agree to the idea that Bethesda should take a hint from Bioware in the characterization department

wut i don’t get is why that ugly hoe Carlotta in the Whiterun says she gets a lot of attention from men


On December 2, 2011 at 6:09 am

the prettiest girl in the game is ysolda from whiterun


On December 2, 2011 at 6:11 am

the prettiest girl in the game is Ysolda from whiterun, she can be located in the market district


On December 2, 2011 at 8:39 am

Wow, reading these comments made my day. Nothing like a bunch of geeks complaining about ugly people. Angry that you can’t marry a hot chick in a video game? Get your fat rear end off the couch and go talk to a real hot chick. Oh that’s right, hot people are the ones that have the right to be shallow. Bethesda did a good job in putting you losers in their place.


On December 2, 2011 at 2:37 pm

“Hi my name is Arren and I think I’m cool talking on an internet article because it makes me feel better about myself because I lack a life and I have no other purpose to my post other than to do what I do best..Trolling”

I admit these choices aren’t very good. I think Bethesda needs to take lessons from Bioware on how to make attractive females(and yes males too.) Then again skyrim’s only benchwarming me until Mass Effect 3 comes out anyways..oh and to those saying they marry male+male,or fem+fem..Gross


On December 2, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Hi Arren, nice to know your true colors came out. Maybe if you did have such a life, like you tell us to have of course, you wouldn’t be sitting here calling us losers and pretending to be soo awesome. Before you tell others to go out and find someone attractive, which you lack doing soo yourself; take in consideration that you should get away from the screen Arren get a break. Get away from the screen Arren get a life :) .

P.S, anyone using a computer is a Geek, just wanted to let you know.


On December 2, 2011 at 6:35 pm

There is a female bard in Dawnstar at the inn, she’s pretty hot, trying to figure out how to marry her using the console command to add her to the marriage faction.


On December 2, 2011 at 11:25 pm

I married Jenassa. We were riding together. She thought we were like-kind, stealing stuff, sneaking in caves, killing Thalmor who crossed our path. Killing more Thalmor who tried to avenge the last Thalmor. Poor b-stards; vicious cycle. She liked the fire in my eye. One day I put on this necklace and she commented on it. I asked her, what’s up? I gave her a lunar sword as a wedding gift — it burns at night — good for killing Thalmor. Now she cooks me stuff, calls me her love, keeps giving me money — and she sold that sword I gave her — cut me deep. I’m pretty sure she has orgies with the housecarts when I’m away.


On December 3, 2011 at 12:19 am

I’ve been doing the Dark Brotherhood contracts and I am really digging Astrid… She has the whole mistress thing down pat, plus she is hot. This may be weird but I also like Gabriella a LOT. It’s the voice and the accent… Ohhh the accent… Wish I kne w the ladies behind the voice acting ;-) Too bad you can’t marry either one.


On December 3, 2011 at 12:37 pm

I figuered that if you want to marry a housecarl simply get a housecarl (lydia for exemple)and then get the housecarl you want (Jordis the Sword-Maiden for exemple)she will just be waiting inthe house and while she is not used you can marry her.


On December 3, 2011 at 3:12 pm

I wish I could marry some Thalmor with nice attitude or that jolly male woodelf from Ivarsted :(


On December 3, 2011 at 4:06 pm

Well after second thoughts..I don’t think the pictures really do the characters justice. Some appear more attractive if you view them up close..I’m already regretting playing an orc because alot of these human girls are pretty good lol Not doing human+orc because I want my ugly to marry something else ugly haha

On December 4, 2011 at 5:47 am

whos the girl in the picture.. she’s really hot


On December 4, 2011 at 7:53 am

Lydia is my hostage love-slave!!! Once she was assigned my slave I made her a follower and brought her to Breezewind. Inside Breezewind I told her it was time to part ways. And now she has set-up shop inside the spare bedroom on the 2nd floor. I never married her and got tired of her whining about “carrying my burden”. She deserves punishment for such insolence.


On December 4, 2011 at 8:04 am

Besides I’m going for Ysolda. Our relationship did start with a mammoth tusk after all.


On December 4, 2011 at 8:55 am

I just better NEVER come home to her and that Khajit dude she supposedly had to give that tusk to.


On December 4, 2011 at 12:30 pm

I personally think it would be hilarious to marry a dragon. I was even considering doing a mock-up photochop of it. Although it would be game breakingly impossible honestly. The sheer phsyics of that sort of relationship frighten me. Not to mention a dragon showing up at the temple in riften would be .. volatile. And one would have to wonder what exactly would interest a dragon in a character that goes around slaughtering its kin on a daily basis ..


On December 4, 2011 at 5:24 pm

wow u can actually marry Taarie one of the clothes store bishes at radiant raiment in solitude who would marry her seriously


On December 4, 2011 at 6:32 pm

Hi. I just want to know a little thing. When you marry a follower, can he/she follow you after the marriage? Or he/she is just staying all day long in the house ?


On December 4, 2011 at 6:52 pm

Just got married to Ysolda who actually looks a lot like a real girl i
like from Sweden ! cool :)


On December 4, 2011 at 7:13 pm

Vex, Sapphire, and that girl you first meet in the dark brotherhood (i can’t remember her name but she’s already married) those are my favorite chicks in the game but you can’t marry any of them.


On December 4, 2011 at 10:20 pm

I married Senna after breaking into her chapel but immediately after the marriage she was murdered while trying to defend me from unruly townsfolk. It was just like On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

I looted her corpse and stuck and arrow in her ass cheek.


On December 5, 2011 at 9:19 am

I’m sure one of the first mods to come out once the SDK is released will be a “make everyone who isn’t already married able to be married” mod. It would take all of an hour to make if the new editor is anything like the GECK.

I’m sure soon to follow would be a “make all girls look hotter” mod as well. The pattern is always the same every Bethesda game.

Of course, only PC players will be able to take advantage of the truck-ton of player made mods that are sure to come out for this game. Sorry console players, but for Bethesda releases you REALLY, and I mean REALLY want to get the PC version next time because the modding scene is insane! Just type in “Oblivion Mods”, or “Fallout Mods” into Google and see what I mean. :)


On December 5, 2011 at 1:34 pm

BUT PLEASE TELL ME… WHY cant I get married?….He wont give me/sell me that freakin ting:P


On December 5, 2011 at 7:15 pm

I think Onmund the mage, or Argis the Bulwark are the best male candidates =p I want either smart or rich haha. I like how in Fable you can marry almost any of the npc’s as long as you’re of they’re required sex. It feels more real. And yeah most of these dudes are ugly.


On December 5, 2011 at 7:27 pm

can you marry while under the werewolf curse (but not in wolf form), or must i cure this inorder to marry


On December 5, 2011 at 10:05 pm

After much deliberation I came to the conclusion that I had to choose between Farkas and Vilkas for a potential husband… Even then ended up having to make two characters just because those twins are so awesome. Though the one I reeally wanted to marry was Ulfric, ass or not, he’s so hot, it’s that voice of his.

On December 7, 2011 at 2:25 am

@andrew well when you married her did you have a house. Once you marry her she does just. Leave abruptly so you have to catch her to move in together. She probably will end up in the companions building or your house eventually because she needs to walk from fifteen all the way to whiterun which could take some time. Alternately you can use the console ‘.moveto player’ .


On December 7, 2011 at 2:26 am

Sorry command is ‘(refid).moveto player

On December 7, 2011 at 7:31 pm

How come you can’t marry any of the hot NPC’s I’ve seen them, there was a smoking redguard in Whiterun but my only options are old woman or chicks who look more manly than my male character! I’ve read woman are complaining too so there is no excuse I mean your saving their frickin world you deserve hotness!


On December 7, 2011 at 10:42 pm

Does anybody know how to marry grelka?


On December 8, 2011 at 3:08 am

LOL. Reading these comments was more fun then most dungeon picks in Skyrim. (Those got old fast after starting my second character)
At first i was pissed when it turned out my Khajiit female assasin could not marry her follower. (Got that medal for the scraggy looking khajiit guard) But then i read these comments and meh, relationships are really unpolished, or rather not done at all in Skyrim. At least Ahnassi (Or whats her name) gave quests to her “special friend” in morrowind.

The reactions are quite funny. There is a lot of written lore, and stories of the quests in this game, but hey, it is not a life simulator. …yet.
Maybe if we got TES the mmorpg, but i dread the day when griefers, powergamers, lolcats and dumb teenagers become the primary inhabitants of tamriel, and quests become “kill 20 frost atronarchs”

But if we are dwelving deeper into the whol relationships and marriage, why not go fll way? You spouse belittering you for dissappearing for several days. Exotic std-s from interspecies marriages. “sorry dear, you might wanna visit the temple, i think i gave you vampirism\lychantropy”. And the classic. “This isnt what it looks like, J’barro was just umm.. showing me how a new bedsheet made out of sabrce cat fur would feel like.”

On December 9, 2011 at 2:10 am

These comments have me cracking up!!

I’ve been playing for about a week and since then, I’ve neglected my kids and my BF!! I want to marry my gorgeous, ass-kicking, bloodlusting, werewolf/dark elf off to a proper man and I have my eyes set on Farkas, the kick ass, hot blooded, werewolf. After seeing him shift and rip apart the Silver Hand’s and then give that sweet, heartfelt speech in my honor, I was smitten!!! Or maybe I will marry his twin Vilkas since he will cook me dinner AND give me money!!! Decisions, decisions.


On December 9, 2011 at 1:42 pm

Girls I agree we are out of luck with the men in skyrim (not much to pick from).

Then I met Marcurio the Destruction Mage found at the Inn in Riften he is hands down the hottest guy in the game, not to mention a badass, he is the perfect companion.
He is an imperial like me and has that beautiful olive skin and striking eyes so go check him out.
Also if you marry him he sets up a store at home and shares the profit with you u so not only does he cook but he gives you money too >:) seriously though, y would u leave him at home???? I bring him on every adventure!!! <3 <3 <3


On December 9, 2011 at 11:02 pm

I am kicking myself for not saving right before the marriage ceremony because Vostag took off right after the ceremony and is nowhere to be found. :(
My knees go weak every time I talk to Bryjolf… The accent and flirty reparte are hot! Also, I freakin want to know what Farengar looks like under that mage’s hood, it could be hot…
This thread cracked me up, and now I don’t feel so bad that Vostag left me at the altar. :) lol


On December 10, 2011 at 7:23 am

excuse me but why are brynjolf and karliah not options for marriage. that’s bull right there.

This has been the funniest artical ever!!!! XD


On December 10, 2011 at 9:33 am

I gave up on going to marry the selected npc’s from the list. They seem too old or ugly besides a few, instead I forced marriaged an imperial guard. He’s extremely gorgeous and hot, now why couldn’t they put him in the marriage quest for npcs :) . I think the imperial guard is bugged because, you can’t really force marriage them, or set relationshiprank to make them fall in love really. He also has some dialogue with him and he spoke about a place I visited near Windhelm. Anyways I take my cute imperial guard everywhere with me. BTW I found him close by the Guard Tower, west of Whiterun.

On December 11, 2011 at 5:16 pm

Sylgja seems pretty to me. I like her lips. I’m so making my orc marry her.
It seems the guys got screwed over on this marriage thing though. The men in this game are much more attractive :3 Although, half of them are wimpy little mage boys…ANYWHO, it’s a cute concept. As for romance, do you really want them to waste their time and resources on the game developing silly romantic gestures or new ways to decapitate enemies? I personally prefer the decapitations <3

Hey so I want to Marry Ysolda but it doesn’t give me the option when I talk to her. I understand that I need to do her “favor” first, but I don’t get an option to do that either. . . any help people?


On December 13, 2011 at 1:28 am

I’m actually going to marry Camilla, the chick from the Riverwood Trader.


On December 13, 2011 at 3:40 am

To marry anybody, you have to get them to like you. For Ysolda, get her the mammoth tusk and she’ll be all over you like stink on . For any of the companions, complete the companions questline. The only one who dies is Skjor, Aela’s bald boyfriend thing, and Kodlak. Nobody really gets choked up about him anyway, since he’s a .

So the ‘favor’ is literally a favor. Just do that person’s side quest, if they have one.

Some characters can’t be married on account of them already being married. The hot ones are usually married. If you find somebody covered in , you can probably marry them.

I don’t know why you’d say that someone dies when they don’t, that’s just a move.


On December 13, 2011 at 3:53 am

Also, Lydia is currently bugged and cannot be married, though according the script she is supposed to be marriageable. I assume Bethesda is attempting to patch this, and the PC version probably has a workaround.

Some ‘favors’ aka sidequests from certain characters can’t be obtained until higher levels. Mjoll, for example, won’t give a lvl. 15 guy the quest to find Grimsever. I don’t know the level she’ll give it out but I got it at lvl. 44.


On December 13, 2011 at 3:56 am

Also? Every character sets up shop, cooks for you, and gives you money after you marry them, so it’s really just a matter of choice. So you can just marry the first one you see if all you want is money, pie, and an extra Misc. shop.


On December 13, 2011 at 4:01 am

@Rapture: No, there’s no way to get divorced or re-married on the console without bumping off your wife. So tell Lydia to wait outside and kill your spouse.

Then all you need is the Amulet of Mara to get married again.

Make sure there’s no witnesses and to do it inside your house to prevent the bounty/jail crap.

When I did this, Lydia was inside and attacked me, but you can ‘surrender’ by sheathing, she’ll walk away, and you can get re-married.

On December 14, 2011 at 3:45 pm

so i married onmund from Winterhold and for some reason he wont fight back anymore!! He just holds a lightning spell and never releases it! I’m so upset! It all started when all the sudden i would look at him and he was naked lol i should of known something was up.


On December 15, 2011 at 9:43 am

Well, I played a male Nord and always had Marcurio with me because frankly he’s amazing and really balanced my heavy-armor-cleave-them-with-a-great-sword play style. So when the time came, I just married him. It was a little awkward at the ceremony and occasionally he calls me “his love” but now he’s completely indestructible and gives me gifts occasionally. Plus he has interesting dialogue and is kinda funny. I call it a win.


On December 15, 2011 at 6:40 pm

Ok first farkas doesn’t die xD, all companions are marrigable, there ARE some pretty wives if you can find em, like I’m married to senna (even though I’m regretting it cause I so want to marry sapphire now..>_> AND SENNA WON’T DIE XD) but she’s still pretty and others of the temple of dibella are pretty too, uh ysolda is too, although other then sapphire I kinda wish I could marry the dark brotherhood initiate girl xD, and for brynolf I can see why you’d wanna marry him lol, I’m a guy an he’s still , attractivish, even nazir is lol

I ❤ Jordis the Sword-Maiden (Housecarl in Solitude)! She has a kick-ass name, decent looks and a soft, breathy, kind-of voice. When she says, “I am sworn to carry your burdens,” it’s totally hot – unlike Lydia, who’s always y about it, haha.

What sucks is that, apart from her starting apparel (basic armor), I can’t get her to wear anything (or nothing ;-) ) else except for some dumb magic robes.

She has died a couple times in battle, but I like her enough to reload my game when that happens. Lately, I’ve been keeping her at home, though, especially when I go on more difficult quests.

On December 20, 2011 at 2:55 pm

No matter what class or race I play I always find myself marrying mjoll the lioness she’s hot in a BADASS way. But I might marry that wanna be caravaner in whiterun


On December 20, 2011 at 5:01 pm

I don’t care if I’d have to make my male Khajit marry another male, I’d just like to have Khajit as an option. Seems like we should at least have one or two options for each race.

Oh well, still a nice feature they added. I’ll settle for a human.


On December 21, 2011 at 11:33 am

All of the male characters are awfully ugly. The females aren’t great either but I’m happier marrying a woman xD yay for homosexuality in games <3


On December 21, 2011 at 12:37 pm

So I’m trying to marry sylja and everytime I try it says attend the wedding, then everyone comes and this guy falls over and dies. Everyone says just leave and I can’t do anything. Can someone please tell me what the hell is happening!?


On December 21, 2011 at 7:20 pm

@Daniel its a glitch, the bodies are those of previous followers who have died, drag the body/bodies into the back room and close the doors then speak to your wife/husband to be again and convince them to re-marry then do the whole marriage quest again, it should work fine as long as you have moved the bodies.


On December 21, 2011 at 9:02 pm

I’m hoping Bethesda makes more people able to be married when they release an expansion. I wanted to marry Cicero, can’t happen. So, I decided on Brynjolf. Nope. A random Khajiit? I guess my character is doomed to be with an ugly minor-role/minor-personality NPC xD

To those having the issue of your spouse leaving after the ceremony, and not being able to find them:

End your conversation with the priest, and catch your spouse before they exit the temple.

i killed my wife…… 125 hours latter shes walking, talking…………stalking lol no but seriously shes alive and i guess she dont remember the wild night with the wolf she got in my way and i got to carried away with her lifeless corpse but i cant seem to remarry her. my sweet aela id do it again in a heart beat killed her in the temple of mara right after marrage


On December 22, 2011 at 3:27 pm

On December 22, 2011 at 5:09 pm

I used to be a women player like you, until i took an arrow to the knee.


On December 22, 2011 at 7:26 pm

Some of these comments are making me laugh so hard.
Lydia is everybodys .
I wanted to marry Astrid, the leader of dark brotherhood, but at the end of the dark brotherhood main quest, she betrays you and dies. Broke my heart. Also she’s already married.
And who the hell wants to marry Uthgerd? She’s like the biggest butch, and she starts drooling over you after you kick her ass in a fistfight. She doesn’t seem that stabil.
OH AND OMG Karliah’s voice is TO DIE FOR. Just wanna sit and hear her talk all day long. No more dragonslaying.

And all you who are having problems with your wife/husband leaving right after the wedding.. Check where they used to hang out. I married Farkas, we have been thru so much together. After the wedding he just walked out. Found him back at Jorrskvrwhatever, sitting on the ground looking sad. I was like thanks?

Sorry bout’ my english btw, I’m from Sweden.


On December 22, 2011 at 8:03 pm

Ive tried to marry many of these women and im wearing the amulate of mara but the marriage option doesnt show up? help plz


On December 23, 2011 at 3:03 pm

Call me crazy, but I think the Argonian Derkeethus (who you save from Darkwater pass) is the hottest male. I married him, even though I’m a Breton. Sometimes, I feel slightly guilty asking for stuff and not giving anything in return(wow, I’ve been playing this far too long)… Anyway, good thing there’s no kids, ’cause who knows what kind of creature you’d get from a Breton and an Argonian…

On December 23, 2011 at 7:03 pm

Is there any possible way of marrying a girl named Hroki in Markarth, she stands near the market, and she is the most attracive girl in Skyrim


On December 23, 2011 at 10:44 pm

I think it’s funny that I spent all day today trying to find a guy to marry, and the only people that showed any interest in me were women. I’m about to just say “ it” and marry Ysolda or something. Funny thing is, that’s my boyfriend’s wife in the game and I didn’t find out until earlier today when I started looking for someone to marry. Haha.
It is hard for girls to find somewhat decent looking guys to marry though. At least that’s the problem I have anyway. I’m not concerned with having a smoking hot husband or anything (looks don’t concern me much in a video game), but I at least want someone who isn’t a drunk/beggar, an old guy, or weird looking.


On December 23, 2011 at 10:50 pm

I think the only girl I would consider trying to marry would be Karliah, yeah, just like all the others, she’s not someone i’d cream myself over, but damn, her sultry english accent is awesome, sigh. Then again, she’d just be like, WTF are you doing!? LEMME DIE ALREADY and i’d be clinging to her leg NUUU!! Your’e too cute to die! Then again, I don’t know if she actually does or not, after looking all over, I just assumed she fulfilled her contract by dying. If she doesn’t and anyone knows where she is, let me know


On December 23, 2011 at 11:58 pm

Does anyone know where to find that barmaid in picture above???? Ive been trying to find her for soooooo long now.


On December 24, 2011 at 3:48 am

>_< @ All the people that think Karliah's voice is hot. Her voice annoyed me so much that it was a joy to run her through with the blade just to shut her pommy mouth.

<3'ing Brynjolf..he can definitely leave his boots under my bed anytime..shame about the rest of the marriable guys, they've either been hit with the ugly stick repeatedly or are dirty old men :S


On December 25, 2011 at 9:35 am

the hottest girls in the game that I’ve found are a waitress in markarth and an eventually murdered waitress in widhelm. i can see why the latter is unavailable (christina henricks type) but that waitress in the silverblood bar is what, too good for the dragon born, thane of thanes? i have a fancy house in solitude biatrice!


On December 25, 2011 at 9:40 am

there’s a girl in shorestone who’s attractive and i think she might have mining rights.

hmmm…. the gal in whiterun has a shop…

i feel like a woman sizing up a man.


On December 25, 2011 at 4:22 pm

All the women have the same sized boob’s….. O.O


On December 25, 2011 at 8:11 pm

So I was helping the Stormcloaks take Whiterun and next thing you know I get a Courier mail giving me my inheritance. Was she a war casualty or something??? Guess being the Widower I am I start hitting on the Mueri chick.


On December 26, 2011 at 4:04 am

Anyone know if the patch freed up Hadvar?? (anyone else get a Scott Speedman vibe here???) Or maybe if I try to marry him early on in story play?? Lol this has been too funny too read!!!

I just married Farkas!! yeah!


On December 27, 2011 at 3:30 am

I don’t think you can marry Karliah at present and some of the other NPCs since they have unique voices (like Cicero and so forth).

I’m disappointed at the list like many others, but was happy to discover you can use the console to make Niranye available for marriage, since Taarie is a nightmare, and playing an Altmer requires, well, a mer-only marriage. Also, I don’t know about all of the Jarls, but you can marry Siddgeir using the console. I think any of the jarls stay in their home though and won’t move in with you.

Too bad none of the Thalmor types can be married.

Also, Bosmer don’t have completely alien religion like some previous posters have been saying and have a lot of the normal gods listed for their religion in addition to their unique beliefs, so it makes no sense you cannot marry them, especially if you’re playing one as well.


On December 27, 2011 at 1:33 pm

Why is it suggested that being a werewolf in cured before marriage


On December 27, 2011 at 4:23 pm

Hey you can marry any character by using code of the console,
I play a wood Elf too and I married Nivenor who lives in the thief’s guild town.
She is a pretty wood elf ! ;)

Weakest Link.

On December 27, 2011 at 4:26 pm

Soo.. Vilkas walked out right after I said “I do.” Can’t find him any where, including Jorravskr.

…Reeeaally appreciate it, dear. Dx


On December 27, 2011 at 11:21 pm

If you marry Farkas do you need to be cured of being a werewolf? Since he is one as well??


On December 28, 2011 at 4:40 pm

Damn I want to marry Hroki!!!!!


On December 28, 2011 at 5:53 pm

Why can’t I marry Parthaanax?!
He’s the best dragon ever!

Or Karliah? Dang…


On December 29, 2011 at 1:23 am

I am soo glad you guys posted that code. I’m going to try it on Hadvar tomorrow :) its poeticly necessary to marry him isn’t it? Its a shame you really can’t marry him to begin with. He’s the one I had my eyes on since the beginning!


On December 29, 2011 at 1:39 am

i agree most of the women aren’t attractive but as long as there’s a profit ;)

On December 31, 2011 at 10:28 am

For everyone complaining about how ugly the male/female characters are, they are far more attractive than those ugly lumps of characters in Oblivion!

And I have to agree…thank the gods I am a (straight) male character; there are lots of sweet looking women, but if I wanted to marry a guy, they are all pretty grubby looking.


On December 31, 2011 at 10:32 am

Suck’s that there isn’t at least one option for each race, or I would have married a Khajiit, no questions.


On January 1, 2012 at 12:15 am

Not gunna lie, the Hottest Female in the game is Hroki in Markarth. Dat ass! But she’s marked as a child so no marriage :,(


On January 1, 2012 at 2:12 am

I agree , Hroki is the most attractive female in skyrimnfrom markath
but I love Susanna the wicked too


On January 1, 2012 at 10:52 am

“Could anyone tell me who the woman in this picture is?”
Svana Far–Shield is a female Nord working in Haelga’s Bunkhouse in Riften. Marriage is possible with PC console command code.


On January 1, 2012 at 10:53 am

I had a crush on Aela the Huntress until I listened to her talk for a little while. Woman sounds like a dude. Besides, I don’t want to come home from a hard day of killage to a woman in heavy armor who looks like she could kick my ass. ;)


On January 1, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Okay to answer some people’s questions: In order to get Farkas, Vilkas, Aela, Athis, and the others from the Companions group, you need to complete the Companion group’s main quest, and then wear the amulet of Mara. You don’t need to complete their personal missions, those are just side jobs for more money.


On January 1, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Ummmn farkas is married to me…. Sorry colt


On January 1, 2012 at 6:58 pm

anyone els have troubles marrying mjoll the lioness?


On January 2, 2012 at 3:40 am

I first marry Ysolda, that’s cuz i saw her in Whiterun and though: Damn she is HAWT! Then i saw her poor house and i can’t help myself but buying the pretty house in Solitude for her. She was fascinated.
Everythig was cool until i saw Aela, i dismiss the stupid Lydia to start going out with Aela into the adventure. That woman looks beautiful in the daedric armor.
I decide to get married again but i can’t get divorced :( or get multiple wives, so i came to the conclusion to kill Ysolda and destroy/sell the marriage rings.
I’ve killed her in the most painless way i can, she just felt and not a single ouch. Then i leave her dead body on the bed of her house.
BUT NOW, i can’t re-marry with my lover Aela…


On January 2, 2012 at 4:47 am

Who is the girl in the picture at the top. The blonde one.


On January 2, 2012 at 10:54 am

I unfortunately killed Uthger the unbroken in Whiterun (bannered Mare) at the start of the game, I took her outside to whiterun stables by asking her to follow me (have to brawl with her and win to have option) because i wanted her armor which was very strong at the time. I dumped her body in the river across whiterun stables. I now wanted to marry Aela the Huntress but every time I arrange the wedding (successful) Uthger spawns dead in the temple of markarth when the wedding is about to take place. All the guest leave and the wedding fails. :/ Uthger is one of the guests in the wedding. I cannot find her body and use “resurrect” to solve the problem before the marriage.


On January 2, 2012 at 11:02 am

Does any one please have a solution to my problem? I would really like to marry that sexy warewolf women!!!


On January 2, 2012 at 11:16 am

I know the exact place where i put her body but it is gone!!! has it been taken by mudcrabs and recklessly been torn apart? XD


On January 2, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Can you marry any khajiit? Id really love a khajiit girl :(


On January 2, 2012 at 5:04 pm

When I go to marry it says attend ceremony and then instantly wedding ceremony failed!! I’m not late arriving its 1.40am ish! Can anyone help?


On January 2, 2012 at 6:45 pm

HEY EVERYONE. If you enter the bonds of matrimony questline there is a console command that will make someone marryable(?)! Look it up!


On January 3, 2012 at 12:07 am

Senna is the hottest sorry guys. She’s into men too by how she talks, she’s a priestess for a Goddess of Love man. Come on. She’s extremely attractive, and so what is if she can’t fight with a sword. Problem is, I married her, had my sights set on her since I walked into that temple, then she’s just poof, gone from the game. WTF batman?!?!?!

Well I go back to previous point, get this all set up again, now let’s see if I can nab Elisif :p. Lost her husband that poor thing and sometimes she says “It’s a fine day with you around” She needs a new man to get things done.

Senna is still the hottest, they just need to fix that dam thing.


On January 3, 2012 at 12:12 am

Ps for those people keep asking HOW to marry Senna, you cannot approach her for that until you do the quest for the temple. You have to find the new girl or something. She’s in Khartsten. Her dad tells you the Forsworn stole her, recover her at Broken Tower Redoubt, bring her back to temple.

But to get that quest, you have to get caught stealing from the temple, and finding the girl is your “penance”

1. Get caught stealing
2. Accept quest
3. Go to Khark and ask around
4. Dad is in mine will tell you Broken Tower
5. Recover girl
6. Bring back to temple of Dibella
7. Receive the Blessing
8. Amulet on and talk to Senna, and yes she’s interested in you

Problem is like I said, you go get married, she walks out and I cannot find her anywhere.


On January 3, 2012 at 2:52 am

Key to Senna, you HAVE to talk to her before she walks out of the temple in the ceremony. That’s why you can’t find her after. If you talk to her before she leaves, the choice of where to live pops up. You tell her you want to live at your house she will go there. If you fast travel she may not be there right off, but I picked my house in Whiterun and after a couple days she was there and has been there.

She’s really quite caring and man I wish she was real. Really hot!!!


On January 3, 2012 at 10:42 am

Great …got married and we decided to live in my house and he walked off never to be seen WTH!! I waited and waited at my home for him and he never came…worse yet he was my companion too now I have no hubby by my side and no companion …where did he go ??


On January 3, 2012 at 4:24 pm

“Is there any possible way of marrying a girl named Hroki in Markarth, she stands near the market, and she is the most attractive girl in Skyrim”

Yes if you are playing the PC. I’m married to her. If the console commands listed here in many places (addfac 19809 0 and then setrelationshiprank player 4) do not work, just download the mod on Skyrim Nexus. Search “Hroki” you will find it. She comes with upgraded thieves guild armor too, and boosted stats. Although you may still have to change her confidence level to 3 since she’s a coward.

There is also a new mod which allows you to modify NPC’s now too, but I’ve not used it yet so I don’t know if it addressed this topic.


On January 3, 2012 at 5:44 pm

My first choice, out of them all, would be Sapphire at the Thieves Guild. Bethesda, you , making all the hot women, and never letting me marry them T-T


On January 4, 2012 at 7:02 am

I decided to marry Mjoll the Lioness, which might I say was a fine choice. But I’ve found that her follower, Aerin, insist on turning up to my house in Whiterun at sunrise, and only leaves at sunset.
It makes me really insecure about my marriage with Mjoll, having him mincing around the house all day while I’m out, sweating, flexing my muscles, and laying my healing hands on Lydia where there is no sexual tension at all.
Basically though, I’m just wondering is Aerin is popping up now and again for everyone else.. And if there is a way to make him.. Disappear..
PS. I tried an Axe to the face.. And that only got me a rather high bounty and a vengeful wife..


On January 4, 2012 at 9:44 am

I came to the marriage game late. I was already level 45 by the time I even first stepped foot inside Mara’s temple. I had no idea. All the adventures, slaughtering of undead whilst glancing back over my shoulder wondering what it would be like to have a faithful companion, with more to offer than pack mule skills.

Then everything changed for this twilight adventurer. With nothing left in Skyrim to dominate, the dragons defeated, the civil war over, my world became gray and empty…until I stumbled into the temple of Mara.

Needless to say I found Aela a fitting spouse. We may have been compatible given we’re both werewolves, but I like to think she’s attracted to the way I bandit’s throats. And to all those who don’t find the appreciation in their significant others, you are mad. The list of benefits is enormous. She goes were I want, no arguments. Eagerly defends my life and will take the burden off my shoulders. How unconditional. And on top of all this, having 100K gold and enough jewels riches to fund an jarl’s hold dosen’t stop this girl from running a damn store out of our house and make more money. Simply amazing.

How do u get a divorce?


On January 4, 2012 at 3:38 pm

Have you seen Karita she is the bard of morningstar and she’s really hot. But can’t be married. :(

Kevin Thielenhaus

On January 4, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Hey Tony,

There are a few ways to “divorce” your spouse in Skyrim, but unfortunately they all require use of the console. That means divorce, as of right now, is only available to PC players. Here’s one way to divorce:

Kill your Spouse, preferably in your home so you don’t get a bounty on your head.

Open the console with the tilde key [`] and enter this command [Setstage RelationshipMarriage 10].

Now, select your dead spouse and use this console command [Resurrect].

Your spouse is now alive! If you want your old spouse to still like you, select them and use the command [setrelationshiprank player 4]

Hopefully that should work for you.


On January 4, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Thanks Kevin, if I knew it was going to be a hassle I wouldn’t have asked lol. I’m not that bothered about getting married/remarried etc anyway, just wish I hadn’t killed her and saved over it now :)

Kevin Thielenhaus

On January 4, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Hey Tony!

Yeeeaaah, getting divorced just isn’t something implemented into the game just yet. It’s a total hassle!

Thanks for the reply, and goodluck with your future Skyrimming!


On January 4, 2012 at 4:36 pm

I thought u could just kill the wife u had and get remarried simple as that. I tried turning her into ash with a volley of fire balls as she was sitting down to dinner asking me how my day was, that didn’t work, she just sat there munching bread whilst on fire so I finished her off with a second volley and dragged her to the spare room were she’s stuck under the bed.

So many people wanted to shack up with the Kahjiit! its a shame really that the opertunity was missed! and loads of people pining over NPC that they have had as followers but cannot marry
Hopefully this will be fixed in a patch or a later game.
I personally would have liked to marry Borkul the beast but you can’t have everything. I settled with Farkis in the end.

two thumbs up to xiva farkas rocks sometimes whn i feel like being outrageous i equip my wifes dragonscale armor and my giant daedra ax then tell her to stay home while farkas and i go beat things with our massive weaponry


On January 5, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Why isn’t Saadia an option? I let her live and everything, and she’s the only redguard woman I’ve seen in the game for my character. Something must be done, she also looks the best from what I’ve seen


On January 5, 2012 at 3:35 pm

Please somebody tell me how to marry argis. Lol :D


On January 5, 2012 at 5:22 pm

I’m in the companions and I don’t know why anyone would want to marry Njada Stonearm in the first place. She’s a ass at first and never has anything nice to say to you. Then when Kodlak dies and you become harbinger of the Companions, that wants your so bad. She’s a gold digger. Ftw


On January 5, 2012 at 5:31 pm

y cant i marry a little kid like wtf


On January 5, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Theres a good looking blonde girl in Markarth who hangs out in front of the outside meat store named (Hroki). Sadly u can’t marry her =(. So I married a girl in Whiterun who owne’s a store named (Ysolda). U get around 800 to 1000 dollars if u wait and talk to her every couple of days. And anyone who may be having trouble getting a girl a lot of times it’s easier if ur a Thane.


On January 5, 2012 at 11:42 pm

I keep trying to marry people and it won’t work,I was also married once but I killed her to get a new wife but it’s not working?!!?!


On January 5, 2012 at 11:44 pm

So can u help


On January 6, 2012 at 2:02 am

Or can you break up?


On January 6, 2012 at 3:39 am

Ummm I acidentlly killed my wife I want to get remarryed,I have the amulet but no girl wants to marry me.What should I do ? help pls.


On January 6, 2012 at 7:13 am

So I moved with my wife to hjerim but she never came. It was after the wedding ceremony and I cant find her anywhere in hjerim


On January 6, 2012 at 7:17 am

Check the temple ;) or just wait a few days and she will come.I had the same problem.


On January 6, 2012 at 9:41 am

Okay – so I have scouted all over Skyrim and have this shortlist of acceptable men: Argis the Bulwark (finest by far – got a deep dark voice, smoldering Barbarian looks and some sexy scars); Marcutio (smart, funny, wiseguy Imperial mage); Erik the Slayer (sweet-natured young Barbarian farm-boy, completely devoted for life); Athis (mysterious and menacing dark elf); Vorstag (basically Ahnuld in his Conan days); Vilkas or Farkas (twin werewolf warriors, sporting some unfortunate ‘Kiss’ stage paint); and last but not least, Moth gro-Bagol (tasty hunk of Orc, for the girl who likes a bit of rough). See – there is hope for us ladies after all! ;)


On January 6, 2012 at 9:42 am

Oops – Marcurio, not Marcutio. My bad. :p


On January 6, 2012 at 12:29 pm

It makes me sad that there are no Khajit men I can marry. My lynx warrior-mage needs kittens with that cute khajit follower you can get.


On January 6, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I would marry argis but it wont let me into vlindrel halls :(


On January 6, 2012 at 1:17 pm

So if you kill your wife how do you get her dead body out of the living room so you can marry someone else? Anyone???


On January 6, 2012 at 9:58 pm

aww not a single khajiit. this make smiley sad.


On January 6, 2012 at 10:46 pm

i want to marry that sexy blonde from markath. she is super hot!!!


On January 7, 2012 at 12:41 am

So can you marry second time ???


On January 7, 2012 at 1:06 am

Life with Senna is mostly awesome so far. Though she’s a bit wenchy about “making” dinner. Honestly she’s so supportive I would cook for her if the game would let me. She never whines when I leave the house, in fact, tells me to “take the world by storm dearest”. She’s awesome!

King Silva

On January 7, 2012 at 7:21 am

LMFAO at some of these comments! :p

I am a male Breton and so far have not gotten married.

I am a little conflicted on who I should marry.

Ysolda is an easy choice for a wife considering she is pretty and I think she gives you a good money supply.

However I read that if you get married to someone your spouse becomes harder to kill? Idk if that is true but if it is then maybe I should just marry my companion Marcurio. He is an awesome follower and I can’t say that he is ugly so I guess I wouldn’t mind..

Idk one of them will likely be my partner [and regardless Marcurio is still going to be traveling around with me as my best friend].


On January 7, 2012 at 11:05 am

Me i married Filnjar from Shor’s Stone. I dont regret it. He is a blacksmith, living in a outside little village. He make 100$ a day, I live in is house and he have a stuff for smithing (im a blacksmith too) He is so nice tome me..he call me love..and we both are male (in the game, in real life im a woman)

Life with him is good :3

I recommand him for a nice life with a nice man!


On January 8, 2012 at 8:51 am

Okay, I married the Olamund guy from the collage just to see how it would work. And then after the ceremony i couldn’t find him. I agreed to live with him since I have not purchased a house and when he told me to meet him and disappeared I couldn’t find a location for his house on the map like the book said i could. Assistance please?


On January 8, 2012 at 2:18 pm

For those of you who think Hroki is hot and are disappointed that she can’t be married, lets face it, it’s her clothes that set her apart from most of the other women in the game. If you go to Liar’s Retreat you can pick up a set of “Tavern Cloths” off of one of the dead bodies. This is what Hroki is wearing, so you can put it on another woman.


On January 8, 2012 at 4:32 pm

any1 no how 2 marry grelka ?? please respond thanks for skyrim marriage assistance


On January 8, 2012 at 4:34 pm

On January 8, 2012 at 9:25 pm

Moira is the hottest hagraven in the game. Too bad we can’t marry her.


On January 8, 2012 at 10:53 pm

You can’t have a hit guy that calls you lass and not allow us to marry him! Bryjolf!!!!


On January 8, 2012 at 11:53 pm

Become the harbinger of the companions and then do the normal things,buy amulet of mara and go to her ^.^


On January 9, 2012 at 5:17 am

So I killed my wife lots of people saw it.Can I find a new wife?How?I tried with console commands (setrelationshiprank player 4 and addfac19809)but it didn’t work.I found a new amulet of Mara but I can’t marry. HELP!!!


On January 9, 2012 at 2:34 pm

To marry senna u must sneak into the back room and do the quest they give u


On January 9, 2012 at 3:19 pm

Hey people add me on psn :D add me as rakiechel

Skyrim DLC

On January 9, 2012 at 5:30 pm

I married the girl that you have to fight in Whiterun. After I beat her up i asked her to get married. I have lost her and can’t find out were she went.


On January 9, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Anyone notice how skyrim favors a player??? There’s twice as many male suitors?!?!?!? And on top of that the women are freaking ugly!!! Let me marry Hroki for goodness sakes!!!

I really want to be able to strip enchantments w/out destroying the item so I can wear the nightingale armor with my own enchantments.


On January 9, 2012 at 9:12 pm

I really wish you could marry Ralof in this game, he is by far my favorite character. If it wasn’t glitched then I would happily marry Erik.

On January 10, 2012 at 1:14 am

spent two days reading this… sad


On January 10, 2012 at 6:34 am

omg! why does no one think elisif is hot!? shes a ing jarl!


On January 10, 2012 at 1:13 pm

i love aeila, i mean i dumped my girlfriend cos i was so obsessed with skyrim, it was worth it, i wish i could get sapphire though, she is soooo hot


On January 10, 2012 at 4:25 pm

You can marry anyone if you use console commands on PC just seelct the character whn the console screen is up and type addtofaction 198091 and then change their relasioship rank to 4 and as long as you wear the amulet of mara you can marry them it may cause bugs with dialogue though


On January 10, 2012 at 6:15 pm

Can spouses be made in blades? That way they’re invincble and fully essential?


On January 10, 2012 at 6:20 pm

It’s the clothes that make Hroki. I just killed Alva(hot vampire chick in Marthol) and took hers. Lol.

Skira Soulclaw

On January 10, 2012 at 7:18 pm

What? No cats or woodelves? :(
First things first I made a female feline. Too bad for her, eh? Maybe I’ll have to find a nice scaly or orc.


On January 11, 2012 at 9:01 am

Hey guys, you know the miscellaneous mission to get a reading from olava the feeble, is there a certain time to go see her? Cos everytime I see her the bint won’t give me a reading.


On January 11, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Hey how do i marry aela the huntress?? she’s the best one


On January 11, 2012 at 4:57 pm

I think it’s completely unfair that the are male and female Argonian marriage candidates, but no Khajit candidates. Why would they not have put at least one of each speicies/type of person you could have chose from in the beginning of the game, is beyond me. If anyone sees this, and is aware that you can marry a Khajit man, please reply!


On January 11, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Man I was really hopeing I could marry karliah from the theives guild way hot how she looks alien


On January 12, 2012 at 4:51 am

Hey, anyone know who the nice looking women in the picture above?
i been all over skyrim and havent seen her, i’m wondering if she’s in the game at all…

O peezy

On January 12, 2012 at 9:47 pm

no khajit???

O peezy

On January 12, 2012 at 9:49 pm

i long for the furry embrace of the cat people hahah


On January 12, 2012 at 10:11 pm

I wouldn’t choose a spouse instantly before getting to know some background knowledge. Like which faction she likes more and simple things like that. I chose Aela the Huntress because she is the most attractive girl in the game in my opinion and she is neutral for the whole civil war thing. She is an archer and opens a shop when at home that collects money for you and if you talk to her she will give you half of the profits. She will also train you in archery and sell you things from her shop. I knew she was going to be my wife before I even owned the game.


On January 13, 2012 at 1:38 am

There are no skaijits to marry ,and to get someone to marry you
You have to do a job for them, its only elimentry


On January 13, 2012 at 1:43 am

All the spouses open a shop after maried


On January 13, 2012 at 2:51 am

now, i’m only as big a pervert as the next guy but is anyone else interested in that crazy wench always loitering around the meatstand in Markarth ? because with ta-ta’s like that i’d gladly slap a ring on her finger but all she ever does is back away from me when i look down her blouse.. how depressing that she won’t marry me, who wouldn’t c’mon.


On January 13, 2012 at 7:24 am

By the way, answering a previous question, In order to marry any companion you need to be a werewolf, after their main quest you can cure your lycanthropy. After that, if you speak with Farkas you can cure him as well, doesn’t matter if you married him after or before that.(I married him just before:P)

P.d. srsly, no way to have sex after marriage, he is soooo hot! XD


On January 13, 2012 at 7:45 pm

You know they make bad husband candidates when the most attractive person here is an Argonian. Seriously why couldn’t they make the humans better looking? Or at least offer Khajit. Gah Xbox: y u no allow mods?


On January 14, 2012 at 3:27 am

alea the huntress is the best imo…..cuz….u know….she cant die!!!

looks good too


On January 14, 2012 at 5:30 am

I’m a girl gamer and I play as a guy ’cause lets be real, unless your Xena Warrior Princess, you can’t be a real Hero.

But when I met Lydia that all changed. We’ve been killing trolls, looting bandits and travelling the world together. Now I find out I can’t marry her and tear her ass up?! What kind of evil is this?!

She will always have a special place in my heart and untill we can be married, I shall protect her always.

(Just a side note, but I realize how lesbian this post sounds and I’m okay with it lol)


On January 14, 2012 at 12:50 pm

I don’t see marriage material, I see people who will level up my Ebony Blade.


On January 14, 2012 at 1:45 pm

! I wanted to marry Brynjolf. This is bull. HE CALLS ME LASS. It’s TRUE LOVE.


On January 14, 2012 at 2:33 pm

just as an aside, this is probably the most depressing/pathetic thread Ive ever seen on the internets


On January 15, 2012 at 5:53 pm

The HouseCarl for Solitude is by far the most attractive woman to marry in the game


On January 15, 2012 at 7:36 pm

If you can toggle weither a character is marriable or not in the up coming Creation Kit, then just create the perfect character for you and marry them. In an ideal world of course -_-


On January 15, 2012 at 11:00 pm

I’m a Khajiit and I married Mjoll the Lioness. She’s nice and a kick ass fighter but couldn’t find any female Khajiits… “So far away from the warm sands…” (And available Khajiits)


On January 16, 2012 at 6:13 am

Sorex Vinius is on the list of man you can marry.. And he was the best option on the list.. so I went to him.. But he doesn’t say anything about the amulet of mara i’m wearing :S
I relly want to marry him, since there are no better options..
So why can’t I marry him?


On January 16, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Bethesda, not for nothing but there way too many bugs in this game. Did anyone test this game before you put it on store shelves and why is there only 5 or 6 different voices doing ALL the voiceovers? I’m not sure I like all the non-traditional aspects of the game, but I do like the actual gameplay itself.

I did the quest and married Camilla from Riverwood. One of the main reasons I married her is because I wanted someone to travel with me and carry items like Faenndal. Poor Faenndal died because I contracted vampirism (NOT a good feature in THIS game) and I had to kill him or let him kill me. Anyway, I married her and she does not leave the house. If anyone had any comments or advice I would sure love to hear it. And by the way, None of the females in this game look like females. They all seem like they have man-faces. Thats fine for the butchy warrior-like ones but I would prefer to have something a little more easy on the eyes. Anyway, how do I get my in-game wife out of the house?


On January 16, 2012 at 6:45 pm

sylgja isent bad looken


On January 17, 2012 at 5:14 am

I CAN’T believe I could have married Farkas. I wasn’t even in the Companions by the time I ‘got married’ so I didn’t even knew he existed. Now I’m already married with a guy named Vorstag, who is also my follower, but isn’t half as good-looking as Farkas.
Or Brynjolf. I love him. He’s just uchbnkgubhnxbukqnjh1yu. He calls the Dragonborn ‘lass’. Could he be more perfect.
Dammit Bethesda.


On January 17, 2012 at 6:02 am

oh come on those women are no alternative for my character, would have expected someone like elysif at least.


On January 17, 2012 at 6:09 am

XD best thing i have ever read

Most mentioned female: Aela/Lydia/Saphire/Mjoll

most mentioned male: Vilkas/Farkas/Brynjolf

most mentioned faction: Companions

to be perfectly honest, female gamer here and Alea is the hottest person i have ever seen. i liked Lydia before i saw Aela though. if i was forced to marry a guy it would be ……uhm, i cant separate Farkas and Vilkas XD they look too alike. uhm, the one this isnt that smart. that sounds mean but thats how i separate them. Female gamers FTW!


On January 17, 2012 at 11:24 am

You people are too obsessed with the marrige thing.Clearly its more an advantage being able to marry than not being able to marry at all.This is just a RPG c’mon people.


On January 17, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Can you marry fellow Brotherhood members?

Issun Evilwizardington

On January 18, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Jeez, you guys are all so picky about who you marry! Honestly? I’m simply going with Brelyna, because of a few reasons.
1. She’s a competent Mage, which is important.
2. She’s the same race as I.
3. She’s at the college, which I will be attending.

And, I guess, she is kind of pretty.
Yes, I’m aware she’s a Dark Elf, problem?


On January 19, 2012 at 8:26 am

Pffft, screw wives/husbands.

My Argoinian is a lone wolf [literally]. I wanna marry a argonian for her but scouts many marshes? “Hi hunny, did you scout any marshes today?” “Shall I scout your marsh?” :S
That was dirty. So i am working on Derkeethus :D

But i don’t like the idea of marriage not because of the limited options but the dissapearing after marriage…

Plus, I have a 12000 bounty in Riften, like hell I am going back there just for marriage. I will be attacked on site >_>

BTW Paarthurnax is old new, Ohdaving is my new favorite dragon ^^,


On January 19, 2012 at 8:50 am

And I am now engaged to Derkeethus, little falmer bastards.

Additionally, I would marry Byrnolf in a heart beat, so Scottish O_O Loving the sexy accent. Vilkas and Farkas… *drool* Can I love them both?

I don’t trust mage hus/wife, one mage [Breylna] turned me into a horse, not going there. Plus I accidently killed her ^-^”


On January 20, 2012 at 10:20 am

The “well Rested” bonus changes to “Lover’s Embrace” bonus if you are married. That’s as good as it gets…


On January 21, 2012 at 8:11 am

While the lack of Khajiit options is kinda irritating, I’m glad to read that Aela is woo-able. Nothing quite like a woman who’s attitude says, “I can kick your ass six ways to Sunday and still look hot doing it.”


On January 21, 2012 at 8:15 am

Although now that I think of it, if I could go with any male in the game, it would absolutely be Ulfric Stormcloak. Muuuuuhh, guy’s just suffused with raw power, and his voice is delicious.


On January 21, 2012 at 6:51 pm

Ok so I married this guy(I totally forgot his name)but he was in Morthal. You have to beat him in a beat him in a brawl to marry him. My word of advice. DO NOT MARRY HIM!!!!! He’s not that good looking or anything, I was just bored of serching for a guy. Sooo anywayyy, I’m saving up money to buy a house in Solitude, so I don’t have a house so when I married the guy I had to moe in with him, AND HE LIVES WITH GUARDS!!!!!! I have to use a lockpick every time to get in my house and I have a bunch of guards in it. It totally sucks.

Oh and I wouldnt marry Sorex Vinius. He sends people after you to kill you.


On January 21, 2012 at 8:51 pm

I think I will reload my game back to a save point before my marriage to an Derkeethus (I call him Derk for short now, lol) and use a cheat code I found out there to force Marry Farengar Secret-Fire, like I wanted in the first place. I think the tiny pool of options they have for marriage candidates totaly sucks. Farengar is so mysterious and hot, I can’t wait to see what he looks like under those robes :)


On January 22, 2012 at 4:36 pm

I wanna a cat lady XD


On January 22, 2012 at 5:15 pm

Want to marry Brynjolf please.


On January 22, 2012 at 8:24 pm

I wanted to marry Susanna the wicked of windhelm. she’s up in candlehearth hall. she has the biggest tits i’ve seen in this game. its a shame they wont let you marry her


On January 23, 2012 at 4:30 am

dang, I wanted to marry Sapphire :/

Adrain Archmage

On January 23, 2012 at 7:20 pm

Sylgja, Grelka, and Aela the Huntress are the only good ones


On January 24, 2012 at 3:50 am

I wish Farkas was a girl hes the best compainion he never dies and hes like that brotherly type. But instead i married Aela my brother (Farkas) was at the wedding so i wound out pretty cool. btw if any girl wants to marry a guy id sugjest Vilkas or Farkas.


On January 24, 2012 at 5:46 pm

Bethseda, why you know let me marry Redguard or Khajiit?


On January 24, 2012 at 7:17 pm

I just married Vilkas.

I attempted to make him a meal, but it failed so I just dumped venison stew, ale and a boiled cream tart and said ‘EAT!’

I also acidently killed Lydia, I though she was invincible, I was disappointed, frankly if she couldn’t live she wasn’t worthy of dovahkin.

If anyone saw my nord, she is sexier then Hiroki [girl in Makarth with tavern dress] and took about an hour to perfect ^-^”


On January 25, 2012 at 1:17 am

oh my god. I CANT MARRY ANOTHER HIGH ELF???!!!! X’O no high elves what so ever. how depressing. i hope this isnt the complete list.


On January 26, 2012 at 6:05 pm

hey im and i found a hot guy in windhelm at the inn their. plus he is a companion so he can travel with me and he usually gives me a ton of cash from his shop that he opens.


On January 26, 2012 at 6:11 pm

StacSue taarie is a girl high elf in solitude you can marry if you are a guy she works at the tailor shop radient rainments their but she is the only high elf you can marry according to the skyrim guide.


On January 27, 2012 at 10:19 am

I decided too marry Mjoll in the end cuz shes awesome and can’t die so makes a great follower. Aerin was annoying since he just appears at whatever town you move to and constantly spouts his set dialog about Mjoll and riften etc… however i was at my home in whiterun and asked mjoll to follow me and because of hat Aerin headed of of the town (assuming he was heading back to riften as thats where is character is set to be) so i followed him and near the ritual stone a scavenger beheaded him… problem solved if you wanna get rid of him but not actually kill him

love at first sight

On January 27, 2012 at 10:36 am

it was love at first sight with Njada Stonearm. i walked into the companions area and found her brawling with that elf… when she took him out my man parts became the hardest thing in all of skyrim. i knew it had to be her. when i first approached her she treated me like and i just view it as a challenge. after completing the companion quests it was on like donkey kong. she’s been with me on every adventure since then. i asked her ONCE to cook. it sounded like she was gonna break my d**k off for insulting her. lol. the option hasn’t shown up in my menu again. lol. also i was surprisingly pleased with her appearance once i got that stupid looking helmet off her. she’s got beautiful hair. just give her a better helmet then buy the ugly one out of her store then take back the one you gave her. lol. all in all i’m quite pleased with her so far.

love at first sight

On January 27, 2012 at 11:47 am

wonder if i can linky to a picture of her -ugly helmet +forsworn armor. very fappable. [IMG][/IMG]

Umm, Yeah.

On January 27, 2012 at 4:35 pm


I thought women loved themselves a good douchebag.

Umm, Yeah.

On January 27, 2012 at 4:36 pm


She dies, quest necessary.

Umm, Yeah.

On January 27, 2012 at 4:40 pm

And, what men have is limited to Aela, Mjoll, Muiri, and a bunch of unapeasing bar maids. (Oh and cute ass Brelyna)


On January 27, 2012 at 6:55 pm

continueing from the post above his name is Stenvar


On January 28, 2012 at 5:15 pm

Pff as soon as I saw Ulfric I was like ^_^ and then I was like >:D and then just *drool* so… Then I was heartbroken!


On January 28, 2012 at 5:28 pm

Also Ralof > Hadvar, but you can’t have Ralof either :( Erik looks a lot like him though, except ginger. Erik is a little young and innocent though *yaaaaawwwn*. There’s a super hawt guy in the bar at ivarstead too, ginger as well, but you can’t marry him :( Why? And then there’s Brynjolf and his voice *purr* but again can’t marry him. And I’d happily have left my Mage with sanguine forever! ^,..,^


On January 28, 2012 at 5:35 pm

For any1 who is a Khajiit you cant marry one even with the console. They dont have the voice dialogue, so nothing pops up.
I REALLY wanted to marry Kharjo, going killin dragons and other great beasts, buying a house and getting ready for marriage, only to find out he cant be married. I thought, “Great! I just bought all that stuff for NOTHING!” I had enchanted some dragonbone armor for him, but he never wore it.
My poor Khajiit.

On January 28, 2012 at 10:00 pm

Am I the only one that finds it odd that you can marry Camilla even though Sven and Faendal can be your follower? They’re both obsessed with her, and she likes Faendal… o.o He was my CURRENT follower when we got hitched. Nothing says awkward quite like having your wife’s ex-boyfriend/lover attend your same-sex marriage after he’s saved your life Divines know how many times. >.< I have to Skyrim files, both females (one an Orc warrior, the other a Khajiit thief/assassin). My Orc married Moth (the male blacksmith in Markarth), and my Khajiit married Camilla. I have to say, I much prefer Camilla. Something about coming home to a woman with money and food to give me is just so pleasing. ;P

Red guy

On January 28, 2012 at 11:58 pm

Wait is lydia marriable now?someone answer that please

Also, i have no problems with homosexuals, but dont those relationships seem a little weird to you? I for one find it unlikely farkas would be willing to wake up next to a man every morning, give him food gifts and money, and run a store

But thats just me, skyrim was a little more advancedfor there time

[Spoiler?] Imperial Woman

On January 29, 2012 at 3:27 am

I killed Ulfric, after finishing Imperial civil war questline and got him naked ;D

My other character fought as Stormcloak and at least Ulfric mentions me in his speech, stupid Tullius, I was offended.

Even Ulfric remained true in the end, asking me to kill him for ‘better song’ He so wanted my girl. n.n

I regret joining Imperial, they suck!

I joined the dark brotherhood just so I could marry Astrid… and to assassinate people, but that’s not the point. I watch Abjorn die and I was overjoyed. When the nightmother told me to talk to Astrid, I was hoping it wasn’t her soul or some crap and that she was ready to get rebounded. Then I see her body on the ground, pretty much looking like a burnt corpse with a mouth, nose, hair, and eyes, and I knew then that I died a little on the inside. Aela ran away in the middle of a quest I was doing with her, so she is out of the question. Can’t marry Camila, because I killed her to marry Aela( she was my first wife). Now nobody will marry me.

The one man I wanted was Brynjolf. But you can’t marry him on ps3. So I’m in the market for an equal. If not I’ll just pick a chick. Not marrying ugly.


On January 29, 2012 at 7:56 pm

To remarry you have to wait til a courier runs up to you and gives you a letter that says sorry for your loss and then pick whoever:)

Mjoll the Lioness wins my heart, and she has a beautiful voice too . Her family stories arent too bad either lol. Oh and as stated early shes a badass and can carry a bunch of gear! Got her decked out in Daedric armor with a Daedric battleaxe! wahooo lookout!


On January 30, 2012 at 1:29 pm

I have to give it up to Muiri as the woman of my choice. She’s got a smokin body in that Nocturnal outfit and I’m loving the cute warpaint under her eyes. Definitely the one I will be marrying, since I’m into the Dark Brotherhood and all…

At least Bethesda gave all of them a nice rack and great curves, for the uglies, I’m sure you can find a potato sack or something to fix that.


On January 30, 2012 at 5:47 pm

I don’t know why you guys are complaining. I think alot of the girls were cool, especially Sylgja and Aela. But for the men, the only hot one I see is Farkas, who has been on my eye since I saw him kill that giant ;) SO dont be complaining guys, us girls have it alot tougher.


On January 31, 2012 at 8:32 am

Ok, I won’t advise or recommend anything specific, rather I’ll just tell you all what I did and what you do with the info is up to you.

I bought Xbox version, full price retail, so there’s no ‘normal’ way to do such things as ‘Undo marriage’ (Divorce without harming NPC and keep them as an option). So I simply got my hands on the PC version. (Remember I bought the game on Xbox fully legit, so paying another 60 bucks to get console commands is not right IMHO..). Re: my PC version, I’ll only say Razor1911 is the man!

So using freeware Xbox save game management tools, I extracted the Savegame.dat file from my USB Xbox save on the same PC, renamed it to match my test saves from the PC game with an .ess extension, loaded it on the PC game and then—

Using the commands from the Skyrim Wiki:
removefac 51596
player.removefac C6472
resetquest 74793
resetquest 21382
setstage 74793 10

Successfully voided my prior engagement with Sylgja. I wanted to get a wife that is also a follower, at least until I repeat the above process so I can find out all the possibilities between almost any woman in the game.

Before I married Aela (after promoting her to Blade status), I went to Markarth and went up to Hroki and entered the following commands (the key is to click on her in the right way, it took me about 10 tries to get it to work) with her as the target:
addfac 19809 1
setrelationshiprank player 4

I then copied the save game back to my usb, overwriting the Savegame.dat within the original save game, rehashed the file and all that good stuff and then moved the USB back to the XBox.

At that point, even on the Xbox (and all the dialogue, etc. worked perfectly), I could initiate the conversation with Hroki about “are you interested”. The save game seems totally fine, no side effects that I have seen yet…

I ended up marrying Aela, as I mentioned.

The only thing I haven’t figured out yet is a way to reset the Dark Brotherhood quests so I can kill Astrid rather than one of the hostages (the character is my Nord “good guy” and I had assumed Astrid was another “invincible” npc and that there wasn’t any other option…) Anyway, I did that as of last night, so I can confirm everything I’ve stated is possible at this time.

On January 31, 2012 at 1:48 pm

is there a wood elf woman to marry i cannot find any in the woman section to marry?


On January 31, 2012 at 4:59 pm

someone said that Farkas gets killed so u cant marry him? i was like WHAT??? so i went back in game to the guild and he was still there even though i completed that quest line. . .so i guess im either lucky or that person was totally wrong. . .either way im happy mine is alive :)

My Love Spells Testimonials

In October 2011, I was on the verge of losing my boyfriend. After this love spell I found he still loved me. He advised me to speak to him. He refused to open up. I asked him about casting a spell. He explained the process. Within 1 WEEK, his mood completely changed, his outlook improved 100 percent and we made plans for the future. Now we’re engaged and the wedding is April 14_2012. Thank you. — FREE MERCY TEMPLE,( freemercytemple at g Viewer’s should help me thank him…. I am getting married soon.

Your spell worked for me in the time-frame you hoped for. Thanks.

I felt the power of your Love Spell almost immediately. Results happened! Thanks! — Hellene, London


On February 1, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Karliah…whyyyyy can i not make you mine!? D:


On February 3, 2012 at 8:52 am

Anybody know how to marry Brynjolf? He’s a sexy son of a gun and his accent makes me melt. But all he says to me now that I put the skeleton key back is “sorry lass, I’ve got important things to do. We’ll speak another time” or whatever it is. Pleeeeease I want to marry him so bad!


On February 3, 2012 at 11:24 am

İf you are wondering picture girl search them


On February 3, 2012 at 11:50 am

On February 3, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Sylgja is the hottest women in this list BY FAR

Triple A XD XP

On February 4, 2012 at 11:13 am

Loved the video in this guide most of all lol!
Anyways, I would have my character marry Farkas ’cause, not gonna lie, a big tough loyal werewolf is the type of guy I believe my character would be interested in haha!


On February 4, 2012 at 3:16 pm

I thought Mjoll was the best looking. I got her into the Blades, and she looks nice in that armor. :D


On February 5, 2012 at 3:14 am

KSo.. I actually wanted to marry Erik the Slayer, But he got killed during a quest so i guess that was a no.. So i married the quite ugly Vilkas as a last resort as to be honest.. I only wanted to marry Ulfric! Too bad that was impossible >.> And by the way, To all the guys complaining about no hot girls, Almost all the girls on that list are pretty! Whereas NONE Of the guys except like 1-2 are hot! So stop complaining! Gawsh.


On February 5, 2012 at 3:16 pm

alright so ladies i felt kinda bad me being a male and all so ik there is this guy in the bee and the barb who yu can easily marry… i think and guys marry aela or that hot breton in the hags cure if you dont like the other 100s of women out there who are mostly marriable btw almost all housecarls are hot and mariable hope i helped :)


On February 5, 2012 at 9:21 pm

I first got married to marcurio and dude he is fruity!!!!! I was bored with tht and so I killed him because my friend told me you can remarry i want farkas!!!!!!!! Stupid game won’t let me remarry


On February 5, 2012 at 9:23 pm

That’s the guy in the bee and barb


On February 6, 2012 at 5:09 pm

haha i wouldnt know what marrying a guy is like sorry i just hire him a lot when i dont wanna have 1 of my housecarls come with me


On February 7, 2012 at 4:02 am

yes!!! why can’t we just marry anyone that’s eligable?? I met this elf the other day, a wood cutter, with the most good natured and high spirited personality in the game! what a joy to hang around with! and I can’t marry him WHY??? or Faendal! he’s been with me since the very begining of the game! even if he did have a sweetheart, she doesn’t even notice him and we’ve been toguether so long I’m sure he’d be ok with marrying me.
Or a khajiit? I have a bunch of friend khajiits by now, most even offer to acompany me, why not marry?

I tell you why: sexist game! and the guys should shut up! I already had 4 or 5 fine looking women after me, some of them amazing fighters too and any of them would be a perfectly good choice of a spouse! but men… There’s Farkas and… Farkas! LOL


On February 7, 2012 at 6:55 pm

I doesnt work for me


On February 9, 2012 at 2:42 pm

I wanted to marry Faendal as well!!! My loyal man! If I marry, will loose Faendal following me? Then I could have my cake and eat it too! :)

Love Skyrim!


On February 9, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Word, so how about Thrynn can’t be married? I find him really smexy :c
And Rune’s such a sweetie! ARGH!!!! Plus my main character’s a khajiit and I really want a nice Khajiit hubby to purr me to sleep at night. Why Bethesda?!?!?! WHY?! :( Guess I’ll just have to stick with Kharjo being just a friend… with benefits? ;P


On February 9, 2012 at 10:39 pm

I want to marry Sapphire…:( WHY BETHESDA WON`T LET ME???


On February 10, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Will marrying an Orc make you blood kin?


On February 10, 2012 at 8:38 pm

Finnally i found a hot woman in markarth in nice blonde and ass cheeks inda stiking out mahahahaha!!!!


On February 10, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Damnit nvm cant get her -.-


On February 10, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Lol got mad and used console codes on her so yeah o got hroki and he aint uglay like all the others


On February 11, 2012 at 12:50 pm

actually if you play on PC, you type in the console and you can marry anyone. Even the Jarls


On February 12, 2012 at 4:16 am

My female Nord character will marry Uthgerd, it was love at first punch. I agree that it’d be cool if she could marry Faendal. My character would snatch him from Camilla and leave her out in the cold if she could. He is a very loyal companion and should be my character’s love slave not hers.


On February 12, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Mjoll the lioness in my opinion is the best looking but I cant find grimsever :p


On February 12, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Why can’t I marry Scadia in the Bannered Mare?!I mean come on.Heroic hero from distant lands finds a noble princess of his own home in danger,he fights off the assassins and returns her to a realm of safety.From the words of Clavicus Vile,”It’s almost…story book.” I mean,Scadia is very beautiful.I still see no reason why not to include her.But seriously,guys, women being “ugly” (Don’t know what you people think ugly is..most are regularly attractive) isn’t a big deal.


On February 13, 2012 at 6:10 am

believe it or not i used the console command on barbas (the dread lords dog)and my female character could not be more satisfied with the doggy style he’s putting her through ,lol…:)


On February 13, 2012 at 6:14 am

i want that chic in the bunked house but i cant get her i tried black mailing her … i showed her the three sings of pation or (some thing like that) but i cant marry her………………………..


On February 13, 2012 at 5:49 pm

Gah! Is there no way to marry Kharjo?


On February 13, 2012 at 6:12 pm

Aela the Huntress is by far the most beneficial character to marry. Once you’re married she opens up shop inside Jorrvaskr and randomly gives you 100-3000 gold.(depending on how long you wait to take your share.) She is a Companions Leader, so she still assigns quests even after you become Harbinger, that reward you with leveled amounts of gold. Also, She is a follower so you can take her with you on your adventures AND, because she is a crucial character in one of the main questlines,she is invincible, unlike any of the other follower choices.


On February 13, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Well, I married Farkas. He stopped cooking!!!! He does not assign me more quest. And I bought a second house, after Wntherum, I bought a bigger one in Windelhem (I don’t remember how to spell that :p). When asked him to move to my new house, he moved, so so far it was going ok. Later I could find him, and went to the basement, he was sleeping there!!! And if you sleep alone, not with your spouse, you don’t get that kind of rest that is supposed to be better!!!! So I had to ask him to move back to my house in Wintherum….
I’m still mad because he is one of teh companions and he doesn’t give quest, and he does not have the cooking option anymore!!


On February 13, 2012 at 8:31 pm

HADVAR! WHY CANT I MARRY HADVAR?? :( he’s so cute and flirty! ughhh >:(

On February 18, 2012 at 4:51 am

can u get married in the Ps3 version?


On February 19, 2012 at 2:11 am

There are hardly any hot guys… it’s sad, really. Most of the younger-looking Nord guys are sorta yummy, and Perth and Sorex seem OK too. Hopefully next game, the potential husbands will be better-looking.


On February 19, 2012 at 9:23 am

My wife wont love me any more, how do i get her back?


On February 19, 2012 at 10:37 am

Defiantly going for Wilhelm or Sorex Vinius, this is so helpful now i know who to look out for, ive already met Wilhelm, he was nice. Also i thought i checked all the chests in the quest at bleak falls barrows, maybe ill go back and have a look, if not 200 isn’t much to pay for it.


On February 19, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Timo u need to complete the questline of the companions,when u complete it u can marry anyone u want from the companions except for the old woman i think


On February 19, 2012 at 5:07 pm

i wish i could marry hroki a woman in markath


On February 23, 2012 at 4:01 pm

To everybody commenting on the unattractness of the NPC’s and limitations on who can be married… That’s why you need to be a PC gamer. They have MODs for all that!!


On February 25, 2012 at 1:03 pm

how do i marry lydia


On February 25, 2012 at 6:41 pm

selection is terrible for the console players, us pc players get a little more options but still. kinda messed up that none of the thieves guild girls are marryable. hopefully somebody comes up with a a mod for that. i mean what better wive for my dark elf assassin/thief then Karliah or even Vex or Sapphire. I might actually look into making a mod for that maybe throw in Brynjolf too for the ladies. In the mean time I picked Camilla and hacked her in the console to wear Nocturnal robes. you have to go into the inventory in the console and take the default outfit but then it works. Anyone else interested in a marryable Thieves Guild mod?

On February 29, 2012 at 2:38 am

I know how all ya feel. Wen i heard u can get marry i went nuts. I saw this girl name Sumthin The wicked. sry tht all i no was the last part.

On March 5, 2012 at 3:43 pm

I decided i wanted to get Perth, over at the mine. But after i cleared the mine of those zombie thingys, he will only buy my ores. I have the amulet but he just says something in general… Little help? :(


On March 6, 2012 at 7:40 pm

i think Gilfre is attractive she seems wedable better then the guy selection

dark elf

On March 7, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Hroki in markarth is clearly the bet looking character in this video game. If i was a video game character too i would tap it raw.


On March 7, 2012 at 2:38 pm

why are the male dark elves that are marriageable SO UGLY? arent elves suppose to be attractive?!? :( the only character i found attractive are brynjolf (who i cant marry) and erik the slayer but erik is glitched…. i cant marry him on the console without a command which is only possible on the pc.i was going to marry revvyn sadri but i couldnt, and pissed off everyone in my wedding lol. or i could marry Romlyn Dreth but ugggh hes old. my dark elf is too pretty yo. i swear, im going to marry a girl like camilla cuz bethesoda male selection is hideous.


On March 7, 2012 at 2:50 pm

oh my god, these comments are hilarious

oh my

On March 11, 2012 at 6:24 am

The best I’ve seen is the girl from Find the Redguard Woman quest. She has a beautiful face, nice skin, and cute clothes. Too bad she isn’t an option.


On March 11, 2012 at 11:33 am

not to try to spoil anyone, but all in the dark brotherhood except Nazir and Babbette die. sadly. Nazir is kind of mysterious in a sexy way but i have not found out if he is marriable.


On March 12, 2012 at 11:20 pm

seriously people?… just google skyrim marriage for the full list of male and female npc’s eligible for marriage.

oh and btw, the chick from Shor’s Stone is the cutest female you can marry (muiri’s eyes are too far apart for my tastes) but the bad thing about her is her miner clothing.

p.s to marry the girls in the temple of dibella you have to do the quest to find the little girl for the main priestess there (shes in the room you have to pick the lock to and i think you have to do the quest for the begger to steal their stature first then talk to her or just go straight to her)


On March 12, 2012 at 11:21 pm

p.p.s the blonde chick in the chick isn’t in the game… also i don’t even thing that the location she is in exists either. (searched EVERYWHERE)


On March 13, 2012 at 6:21 pm

You find Uthgerd in the inn she usually is never at home.


On March 14, 2012 at 1:26 pm

I married Ysolda waited one hundred days got 10 thousand dollars killed her and married Seanna xD


On March 14, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Gah, why are there no High Elves?!?! Taarie is just a with bad hair. No way would I ever marry her. And the only other High Elves in the game are the head of the Bard’s College in Solitude and those Thalmoor s. Yuck. Why, Bethesda?!?!?!?!

Also: Brynyolllllfffff. I want to marry him SO badly. But could he actually be married to Vex or Tonilia? That would explain why you can’t have him. (Unless you kill them both— then that sexy ginger would be all mine~)


On March 14, 2012 at 8:32 pm

To Everyone Who Keeps Saying Muiri Wont Talk To Them You Have To First Join The Dark Brotherhood And Complete A Quest To Kill Her Husband Afterwards You Can Marry Her.

Elrond dark elf

On March 15, 2012 at 5:54 am

Managed to get to level 30 and own 3 houses ..the best of which is Proudspire Manor in Solitude..
So I figured ..time to put down some roots ..and try and marry my long time companion Illia…who incidentally looks ‘Hot’ on the rare occasions I can get her out of that shabby mage robe and into the Foresworn armour I gave her…
..but no way she’ll take me on..
Dammit !!
I can marry my Proudspire house carl …but I don’t want her …
I prefer my feisty Illia who has helped me lay to rest the souls of at least 15 dragons.

Just as and aside …I very often have to reload an earlier game and make frequent visits home …just to maintain the link with Illia …
..If I’m adventuring alone and am gone too long …she either vanishes …or refuses to acknowledge my existance ..or indeed accept commands anymore..
Whats that about…??
She knows who I am …and I’ve saved her ass on many occasions ..and vice versa..


On March 15, 2012 at 7:27 pm

How can you marry Farengar?? Ive looked everwhere for this answer(not a hyperbole) Im really annoyed . No other attractive guys):


On March 18, 2012 at 8:06 am

Seriously?? All those guys are not very pretty… Why can’t I marry someone cool, like Hadvar?? He was pretty awesome. I don’t know. Maybe I’ll just marry a chick, they’ve obviously had more time spent on designing their looks. *sigh* It’s tough being a girl gamer sometimes…


On March 19, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Why would you wanna marry me?


On March 21, 2012 at 12:58 pm

I advise everybody to see their spouse home from the wedding ceremony. When I married Ysolda from Whiterun she somehow was killed on her way home from the wedding ceremony in Rifton. She never appeared in my house in Whiterun and when I checked her house all her possessions could be taken without being stolen, so she must be dead.
I didn’t even know NPCs could be killed on unsupervised overland travels.

Sylgja is HAWT……..Like FAP FAP FAP HAWT……Most the others are ugly, while there are only like 3 or 4 ok ones…..Then maybe one or two ones that are okish for being non human races…..Like that Dark Elf Merc in The Drunken Huntsman.


On April 17, 2012 at 3:22 pm

to timo you have to become a memver if the circle and she will be available


On April 23, 2012 at 4:53 am

Narri in Falkreth is by far the best and sexiest skyrim female. She cleans and has huge boobs.


On April 23, 2012 at 11:49 pm

Sylgja is actually really pretty. Well, in that photo, she is. :3 I haven’t seen her in person. But, I had no idea that I could marry a girl as a female, so I didn’t pursue a female. :/ I’m married to Marcurio. He’s the most attractive guy, but he offers nothing. ;/ Is there anyway I could divorce his arse?

‘Farkas – Nord, found in the Brill and Vignar, in Whiterun.’………

I think that’s a mistake….. if not I’m concerned about my brother in law

Also, I’m really disappointed there is no male High Elves to marry, I really wanted to marry one..

soo I helped the temple before talking to Maramal in the pub and now I can’t get married. :c how can I get married?


On July 31, 2012 at 7:45 am

Though my player is a female Khajiit, I have a thing for Argonians, but one of them is hard to get to, and the other has a glitch to him, so I can’t find him :(

My wife/companion is Aela. When we married we were both werewolves. I subsequently took the cure. However, now when resting I get no resting bonus. Is this because Aela is still a vampire? If so, is there a way to get her to take the cure?

wtf is wrong with you guys?… I mean they’re cartoons not real people get over your fetish of trying to find the hottest chick in the game and just marry one… you get a good perk out of marriage that’s the only reason i do it… weirdos.


On September 9, 2012 at 6:20 am

Why can you not marry a Khajit???


On September 18, 2012 at 6:19 pm

For Aela the Huntress I guess you have to be female(?).

I’m an High elf Female and just walked up to Aela and got the option.

I have been married to Aeri for 180 years… We may be old, but we are never bored of each other. I love Aeri, because she has beautiful blue eyes.


On September 23, 2012 at 9:08 pm

It is really frustrating that there are no khajiit guys to marry! This needs to be fixed.


On October 23, 2012 at 12:33 pm

forever alone.(‘n’)


On November 25, 2012 at 1:59 pm

This does not work. I add the NPC’s to my group but when I marry another the first one is no longer a spouse. So what is this “addfac” command supposed to do?


On December 9, 2012 at 10:56 pm

im only interested in Marcurio and Onmund


On December 17, 2012 at 12:36 pm

I married Onmund. He’s not bad although you never get to really see his face clearly. I now have two kids and a house i built. btw don’t adopt Runa, she’s annoying.


On January 15, 2013 at 12:10 am

Ok, dumb question but can you marry Hadvar? I mean I dont think it will ever happen but “Hey!” What the heck, he is the most good looking guy that I have seen on there, so yaaaaaa…. Just wondering….. :D


On February 21, 2013 at 8:44 am

I love the game and can,t really complain…it’s fun. Marriage though is nothing more than an in-house merchant who calls you love. Kind of funny, really…blood and gore, but can’t even at least get a peck on the cheek when you go out to go on your slaughter spree for the day. But, all and all…great game—except for marriage.

It is soo hard to find an attractive male to marry.

The closest to descent is Sorex. I wish you could marry the Jarl of Whiterun. That would be soo cool. Like, Jarlessa time lol,

Hardly any good lookijg guyz,

Either they have small eyes or big mouths ugh!

The most decient man I could think of is Erick the slayer


On May 6, 2013 at 12:12 pm

Why in the world doesn’t the woman on the picture exist in Skyrim? She can’t be from one of the DLCs since this post was posted the day after Skyrim was released! There’s no way in hell they already had Skyrim DLCs back then!


On May 28, 2013 at 1:10 pm

Dissapointed that Farengar Secret-Fire isn’t marriage material…I heard
a rumour that Hearthfire adds more potential spouses however,
but that could be untrue.
If my absent minded nord isn’t ready for a commitment however, I might
marcurio. Shame that he loses most of his personality though.

Hearthfire totally adds more spouses! Dragonfire too. Check out the new marriage options on both of our DLC lists:

I am a werewolf and I have a question, can you marry without curing lycanthropy (werewolfism)?

Kevin Thielenhaus

On July 15, 2013 at 12:16 pm

@Dragon Born,

You can totally still get married, even if you’re a werewolf or a vampire! As long as your spouse is into it.

Aw no cat people :( but…. still super helpful :D


On December 7, 2013 at 6:09 pm

Oh I see. No Khajitti candidates. Fine, you bunch of speciesist. I’m going back to Elsweyr.


On January 1, 2014 at 5:15 pm

to marry any of the companions you must complete the whole quest line


On March 7, 2014 at 12:44 pm

So I married Farkas, and the dude keeps trying to arrest me! Just because I steal stuff now and then behind his back. Yeah it’s kinda exciting having your husband chasing your butt all over town but it gets tiresome ya know?


On April 4, 2014 at 10:03 am

OK, so I finally managed to marry Susanna the Wicked (IMHO the best one in the bunch, who’s not only hot but is also vicious in battle). After we said our “I dos” and received the rings, she left the temple and is nowhere to be found.

A little background: She was my companion who followed me everywhere, and helped me with my quests, and I finally went through the hoops of getting married, and to my surprise after I had permission to get married, I turned to her and talked with her and she practically asked me to marry her. So it was done. We were married!

So, anyway, she leaves the temple and now I cannot find her. I even tried the following console commands to place her with me:
pld 001b11b
moveto player

But that didn’t not work. I can only assume that as soon as we were married that she was no longer considered my follower and that’s why the above commands didn’t work?

My old account, I was married to Mercurio. THEN my game got deleted by switching consoles…

Skyrim Necrosex king.

On July 9, 2014 at 5:55 pm

Okay, I realize that this thread is practically ancient, but I’ve got to weigh in on this.

First and foremost, Sex mods from full nudity to sex to BDSM are out there for p.c. I don’t know if they existed in 2011 when this thread first started, but they are out there. I hate winblows and Mac and linux (my preferred o.s.) sucks balls for gaming (even using wine) so I use 360 where no such mods exist…and probably never will. :(

Secondly, For those of us who want something of a sexual component to our marriages, just pick a companionable partner whose clothes you can strip down to their chonies and wait until they’re asleep. Sleeping next to them was the makers way of implying that you’ve had sex.

Thirdly, most of the posters on here are way yonder too picky! Especially the Ladies.Why y’all go so nuts over Brynolf and he is good looking, but For real, Vilkas and Farkas are ugly!? Y’all want these modern, metrosexual, sissy faced guys and that isn’t something you’re going to find in great numbers in such a brutal land at such a brutal time. The guys in Skyrim for the most part look like-I dunno-REAL MEN maybe!? Both my real life Wife and I used our characters (Female Imperial and Female Dunmer repsectively) to marry STENVAR.
He’s the Nord hottie/Mercenary that resides in Candlehearth hall in Windhelm. Imagine ROB HALFORD of Judas Priest with a full, slightly greying beard and you get the picture. If you don’t like him, you can always marry the more “demure” looking guys-like the blonde, Alkie companion that’s always talking about guzzling mead. But he is not very attentive and says dumb like “You know I love ya.” when he knows he’s about to enter the doghouse for his excessive, alchohol inspired neglect (my Breton killed him for it!)

My fellow Men on here ain’t much better when it comes to pickiness-no better at all actually. As a Nerd male with the great fortune of finding a gorgeous, real life nerd Goddess of a wife who gives me what every man wants from a Woman emotionally-VALIDATION-I would highly recommend JORDIS THE SWORD MAIDEN. She’s the second sexiest companionable Woman in the game next to Lydia ALWAYS proud of you-even when you leave her alone for too long (“Back from some adventure I bet!”) Sylja is another sweetie of a choice who is hot as hell, but you can’t get the uncompanionable NPCS stripped down to their underwear-so I usually don’t marry them.

Lastly, Love is a wonderful thing-real life or game wise-so good luck to everyone of you on both fronts. :)
