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.

Apologies if this is already answered. I couldn't find the answer.
TES5edit mentions cleaning the mod. Can I do this, or should I ignore and message and absolutely abstain from cleaning it?

Actually, I figured it out, but I can't move my spouses to Winstad Manor, is there a patch compatible with Hearthfire?

How do I propose to a second wife? I've been trying to get Camilla Valerius and in the future Serana, but Ysolda (current wife) appears to have broken the mod so that I can't get the pu$$y I want. Please help.

If my spouse has been dead for a while now can I still remarry? Or will I have to find her and divorce her corpse?

I had a major problem with the polygamy aspect of this mod. Tried marrying isolda, it all went well until it was time for the actual ceremony. I tried using the wait function (which made me miss the ceremony no matter how brief the wait was) I tried just sitting and waiting inside the temple (that didn't work) so I just couldn't do anything at all and now the aspect of love won't emerge for me

I was not having an issue with this mod and all of a sudden the Aspect of Love twon't interact with me. I placed it at the bottom of the load order as suggested from the very beginning when I installed the mod. I even uninstalled and did a hard save and still having this same issue, Is there a work around with console commands?
