This mod is designed to enhance the current marriage system in Skyrim; specifically the Wedding Scene at the Temple of Mara, fix various marriage related bugs (potentially an ongoing effort), and add mechanics to remarry. Ultimately, the goal of this mod, and others planned for the Marriage Mod series, is to bring the Dragonborn and their Spouse more close together and have a much more robust and interactive experience within the marriage system. Considered an overhaul of the marriage system in Skyrim; this mod will likely conflict with any other Mods that make changes to the Temple of Mara within Riften or “The Bonds of Matrimony” Quest as well, but should be Follower Mod friendly.

NOTE: Please read through the FAQ and Troubleshooting link below before posting issues with the mod

--Feature Summary—
1.) Marriage to a new spouse via death or Intentional divorce of old spouse.
2.) Fixes to the wedding ceremony and a reception afterwards with dynamic events depending on the Dragonborn’s completion of specific quests; Tending the Flames, Blindsighted, The Eye of Magnus, and Glory of the Dead.
3.) Three sub quests, which help aid the Dragonborn during the marriage events.
4.) A basic version of the “Dress Up” feature ( which will be part of a future marriage mod sub-titled “To Love and Cherish”) allows the Dragonborn to ask their spouse to change the default outfit they have on (the one under the equipped armor) to one of a hand-full of predetermined outfits.
5.) Fixes to various NPCs related in part to Marriage.
6.) The Dragonborn may now marry multiple spouses (to a Maximum of 11) with the help of the Aspect of Love. One can also easily locate each of their spouses with the aid of a new book, titled “Mara’s Tear”, which details each spouse’s location.
7.) The Dragonborn’s spouse(s) can now move to one of the four faction homes depending on completion of their respective Questlines.

As with any mod that is an overhall, like this one; it is recommended to perform a hard save in Skyrim before you begin using it. The hard save will give you something to fall back on in worse-case scenarios. Feedback is always appreciated (even if I can be very busy and slow to respond) and absolutely welcome. If you truly enjoy this mod please remember to give it an up-rating with green thumbs up.

Same thing is happening to me that seems to be happening to a number of people: No Aspect of Love.

Looks like fun but after speaking to Maramal and waiting 24 hours I attend my wedding wearing the dress and everything only to fail or my intended spouse isn't even there. I exit the temple and enter only to fail and get told off. I've repeated the quest several times and at last decided to unsubscribe =(

Hmmm at first this mod was working great, talked to the aspect of love with no issues, paid the for the tithe for second wife, got the amulet of Mara, asked Hroki to marry me, got a quest about putting on clothes, went and put on the clothes, and then....nada. Hroki's not here, there is no marriage quest, the aspect of love is gone, I've tried resting for a few days, nada as well. Welp, back to the drawing board I suppose.

I got attacked by a squad of vampires during my wedding, my wife was wounded. two guards died, a priest was killed, and then every person in the audience got up, pulled out weapons, and killed the 5 vampires that did it. as i stood there in shock, thinking to myself "what the hell just happened?". 10/10 would get married again.

The last time I got married the vampire lord Harkun attended my wedding. Wished me good luck and long life on the way out. Very nice of an enemy thought. Respectful. Seconds after I step outside the temple of Mara my new wife Lydia is in the mouth of a fire dragon who also attended the big day it seemed, uninvited. At this point Harkun and his now Master vampire death squad had taken out half of Riften and ended my big day a widower. Barely alive as I had to jump into the canal and run to the Theives Guild on my last few breaths. Not big on weddings anymore :/
