Bonds of Matrimony - Divorce

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.

Hello, is it possible to create a console adaptation of this mod? I play PS4 (no one has to tell me that it is bad because I KNOW) and I really need this because YSOLDA cannot die! I was really hoping that someone can create a console version of this mod. Is that even possible? I imagine if it was possible, someone would have already done it; but I cannot find it in the mod directory for PS4.

I married Lydia, therefore because she is a follower and housecarl will she just go back to being my housecarl or will there be an issue with her remembering anything? If that made any sense.

How does she act afterwards? Does she still engage other npcs the same way? Because I found out I hate marriage in this game. Because it makes the spouse creepy.

I will likely be releasing this updated and compatable with Hearthfire and the new Special Edition when it arrives. If the Construction Kit is supported :)
