Bonds of Matrimony - Divorce

This mod allows you to divorce your spouse, without the need of console commands, smoothly, simply and at the same time without breaking immersion.

A statue, which can be found at the bottom of the pool, below the waterfall at Bard's Leap Summit, allows you to break your bonds with your spouse. She/he won't be happy, but it does leave you able to re-marry if you wish!

That's not all though, previously, when your hubby/wife died, the game did not clean up the quests correctly, preventing you from re-marrying. In this mod, it is fixed so that if the unfortunate happens then you will be free to re-marry.

To re-marry you will need to return to Marmal and speak with him about weddings, after that point you will be able to find yourself a new wife/husband.


If you're wife/husband was killed before running this mod. Then, whilst the mod is installed, use the following command in the console-

Open the console with [ ` ] key and type the following:

"SetStage 00021382 200" without the "" question marks. This should trigger the cleanup script for your missing wife. If it works, you'll get a message saying you're no longer in a relationship. Let me know if it works/doesn't work.


- None that I know of. I've tested it thoroughly to ensure it worked in various situations.
- Mod Conflict: Child Adoption Service - You can still divorce fine, however your wife will lose all memory of knowing you, and will likely not leave your house immediately. No plans on hunting down a fix as it doesn't stop you ending your relationship.
- Does not work with Hearthfire or adoption mods.

How does she act afterwards? Does she still engage other npcs the same way? Because I found out I hate marriage in this game. Because it makes the spouse creepy.

I will likely be releasing this updated and compatable with Hearthfire and the new Special Edition when it arrives. If the Construction Kit is supported :)
