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.

Alternatively, would you consider releasing permissions for someone to do a stripped-down version of the mod that would better for compatibility?

Since this mod appears to be abandoned, would you (joeThinkStudios) consider releasing permissions on it so that other users can make compatibility patches with the scripts? A patch for Hearthfires is already in existence, but a patch for Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions is, in my opinion, way overdue.

So whenever I try to attend my wedding ceremony, Taarie shows up dead in the Temple of Mara and cancels the whole ceremony. This happens every time I do this, even if I completely disable Taarie. Any way to get around this?

Is Cicero marriageable?

The Aspect of Love wasn't responding to me. But after buying an Amulet of Mara from Maramal and having it in my inventory, he finally stopped giving me the silent treatment.

this mod is a solid concept, but really needs to updated and tweaked.

If you spare Cicero during the dark brotherhood quest line. He dances for you at your wedding like a real jester. :D
