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.

Theoretically yes, this mod cleans up all the scripts related to the divorce/death of a bonded partner. So by divorcing them, it'll free you up to remarry, IF you can get them to like you again. I'd be curious to know if you manage it without console commands :)
