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

Athis’s Marriage DIALOGUE

Athis is the only Male dunmer character who you can have as a follower and also marry. He’s also an expert level trainer in One-handed. This means, once you have him as a follower you can level up One-handed for free by training with him and then trading with him to take back the gold you just paid him. To trigger his eligibility as a marriage candidate you need to complete the main questline of The Companions.

How to Marry Athis

  1. Head to Jorrvaskr in Whiterun.
  2. Join The Companions and work your way through their primary questline.
  3. Complete the final quest in The Companions questline – Glory of the Dead. You can now ask Athis to be your follower and he is eligible for marriage.
  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.
