Marriage Mod - To Have & To Hold

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.

My experience with this bug is : I married Farkas first, he agreed to move Heljarchen Hall in wedding ceremony but continue living in his own room at Jovasskr. Then I ignored this problem and proceed to marry his brother Vilkas, again Vilkas agreed to live in Heljarchen Hall but won't move his a$$ out of Jovasskr. But after Vilkas' wedding ceremory I find Farkas now has option to move to my vanilla house(Breezehome), which I did ask him and he moved into my house. At the same time Vilkas still has the old dialogue which offers homestead options only. I tried to marry a 3rd husband(Jarl Siddgeir...don't judge, his marriage dialogue is actually pretty nice...) and see if Vilkas can move to my vanilla house and it worked. Now I have my 2 daughters and their twin fathers living together in the same house with me...oh and Lydia too XD

Somehow this mod works for me. Still a bit buggy here and there, but tolerable.

So far there is only one bug that is bothering me a little bit and it got easily solved. That is your "primary spouse"(the latest one you've married with) only has option to move to your homestead, and won't actually move to any of your properties even they agree to.

That Kawaii Ahri >'.'< Don't bother. Support for this mod is long gone. The "author" basically made a mod, didn't check for flaws and inconsistencies and on top of that the "author" didn't even bother cleaning this mod of dirty edit (which is confirmed by both LOOT and Xedit) which made the game unstable.
Just get use Multi Marriage by Jamce ( or Lovers in Skyrim ( don't even bother with this one.
