How to get married in Skyrim

Leaning how to get married in Skyrim is one of the nicer quests you can take on. No dragons, screaming, or blood, just love and a wife or husband. If you're playing Skyrim right now and want to know how to get married, then read on and live happily ever after. 

Getting married in Skyrim is actually pretty easy; just head to the settlement of Riften, and enter the Temple of Mara. Speak to the priest and ask about weddings, to receive information about how the process works. Purchase an amulet of Mara, then wear it when speaking to your potentially betrothed. If they agree to marry, return to the Temple of Mara to request the ceremony then wait 24 hours. Once the service is complete, speak to your partner to decide where you will settle down and make your home.

Sometimes you'll have your heart set on a girl or guy, only to find out that they're already taken by another. Or, you know, they'll be eaten up by a dragon. Just as likely in Skyrim.
