“An Amulet of Mara? You’re looking for marriage, then. – [Interested in me, are you?] – Won’t lie, I am. And you?”

Argis the Bulwark’s Marriage DIALOGUE

Markarth Housecarl Argis is a popular choice of husband among the ‘likes-em-big-and-husky’ crowd. He can definitely handle himself in a fight, and there are anecdotal reports in a number of online forums that unlike Farkas, Argis will never turn on you if he sees you commit a crime.

Even if you don’t marry him Argis will serve you with his life if you become Thane of Markarth. On the flip side, there are a couple of bugs where Argis will mercilessly beat other NPCs at inappropriate times. In other words, he’s got a little anger problem.

How to Marry Argis the Bulwark

  1. Become Thane of Markarth.
  2. This includes, killing groups of Forsworn for the Jarl, retrieving Hrolfdir’s Shield and purchasing the property, assisting Markarth citizens and purchasing Vlindrell Hall.
  3. You will then be granted Argis the Bulwark as a personal Housecarl. Once he is your Housecarl he becomes a marriage candidate.
  4. Purchase an Amulet of Mara from Maramal in Riften. If you haven’t visited Riften before you’ll find Maramal in The Bee and Barb, otherwise try the Temple of Mara.
  5. Make sure you’ve discussed marriage with Maramal (dialogue won’t trigger otherwise), wear the Amulet of Mara and go talk to your beloved. The marriage dialogue option will now be available – “Interested in me, are you?”.
  6. After agreeing to get married, visit Maramal again and he will set the date for your wedding for the next day. Walk outside and wait 24 hours.
  7. Walk back into the temple of Mara. Your spouse will be present and the wedding ceremony will commence.
