I can't getmarried!
Wearing the amulet of Mara doesn't trigger off the marriage conversation in *anyone*! I don't know why not! Nobody asks "Are you interested in me?" Is anyone else experiencing this glitch?

Yes. I've tried Lydia, Mjoll, Rayya, Sylgja, and Ysolda (after completing their quests, of course) amongst others, but I click on them while wearing the Amulet of Mara, but... no reaction. Isn't it okay for a girl to marry another girl?

I don't usually get an Amulet off Maramel, I usually get the one in the tent up north just past the Dawnstar Sanctuary. It's free.

I'll try verifying the cache and installing the unofficial patches. Perhaps that will help. I'll let you know.

There are one bunch of quest you got in Riften that must be done before you can marry.
Have you done them all, handing out some paper, talk to some lovers.
If you have done them all do verify files.

Nope, you only have to talk to the priest, who will then give you an amulet. The quests you are referring to is for the Mara magic resistance bonus

Can be that Grathagis.
But you must do this quest.

You can buy one Amulett of Mara or find one.

You have to buy the amulet from him!! That's the only amulet with the marriage trigger. Other free amulets of Mara you find around by loot don't work. Go back to Riften and buy the amulet.

This is from the Wiki page.

Arranging an Engagement
Maramal performs a wedding at the temple in Riften

If you are interested in getting married, you must first speak to Maramal in the city of Riften. He can initially be found in The Bee and Barb tavern preaching to the locals and later at the Temple of Mara. Talk to him about marriage and he will instruct you to obtain an Amulet of Mara; a holy symbol of the goddess of love.
At this point, you may purchase one from him for a small fee, or find one in random loot throughout the game.[/b]
Any Amulet of Mara will do, so if you already have one before speaking to Maramal, there is no need to buy one.

Now you must find an NPC in whom you have an interest.

The person that you wish to marry must have a high disposition towards you. [/b]

This can be achieved by doing favors and completing quests for that character. When you have met your ideal spouse, you must approach them while wearing the amulet. This will give you new dialogue options concerning marriage. Ask the person to marry you. If they agree, you will need to organize a wedding ceremony. Return to Maramal to tell him that you are interested in getting married at the Temple of Mara. He will be delighted and will announce that the wedding will take place the very next day; from dawn until dusk.

The Ceremony
Early the next morning your spouse will be waiting for you in the Temple of Mara. Upon entering the building, you will walk down the aisle and take part in an age-old tradition between two people. You will be required to say your vows, with prompting by Maramal. You are now legally married! The first decision you must make is where to live. You may live in your spouse's home or any house that you have purchased. This decision is not permanent; if at any time you want to change residences, choose the "I'd like us to move somewhere else" dialogue option.[/quote]

Thanks so much for all your helpful suggestions, guys. I verified the cache, bought an Amulet off Maramal, but before I could download the unofficial patches, I found:
http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/52167
which eliminates the need for the Amulet of Mara altogether!

By the way, the page
http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:The_Bonds_of_Matrimony
says "you may purchase one (Amulet of Mara) from him for a small fee, or find one in random loot throughout the game. Any Amulet of Mara will do, so if you already have one before speaking to Maramal, there is no need to buy one."
So the UESP Wiki might be wrong about that.
