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.

it's a dirty mod. before using it, clean it with tes5edit. that will help to avoid problems.

Well, sorry about those multiple posts, apparently I had more to say than 1000 characters.

I have used this mod for months and it works quite well. Just thought I could offer some answers to questions and ended up feeling like I was spam city.

Always save at different steps during the wedding process so you can always load back-up the previous save. Review your notes and test again. It does work, I assure you...

I do have additional information ready if you would like to see posted. Don't want to over post unless requested.

does this make klepper's daughter from markarth marriable.

I don't believe so, you may want to check other mods for her. She is rather popular and I have seen other mods, however I don't use any of them.

1) To divorce the spouse, remove the wedding rings from both of you then speak to your soon-to-be ex again. You should see the divorce option in the dialogue box.
2) I can't confirm if you are able to remarry a divorced spouse but can verify they do get pretty upset and won't talk to you when the divorce is final. It is my understanding though that after a period of time, they will forgive and forget allowing for another chance at marriage.

Marriage Partners
1) This mod works good with other mods that increase the available number of marriage partners. I use Marriageable Nord Males by Altbert (here on Steam) and he offers a variety of marriageable NPC mods for males and females.
