How to Marry Filnjar


“An Amulet of Mara? You’re not married? Surprising. – [Interested in me, are you?] – I am. I’d be glad to stand by your side until the Divines take us, if you’ll have me.”

Filnjar’s Marriage DIALOGUE

While he can’t accompany you on your adventures, and doesn’t offer any training (even though he’s a blacksmith himself), Marriage with Filnjar does have some benefits. Firstly because he’s a blacksmith, you get better access to smithing supplies, also you get to live in Filnjar’s House, which while not a mansion is a perfectly decent (albeit humble) home. The best part about living there is it’s only a few feet from the fast travel landing point in Shor’s Stone. This means you can very quickly drop off loot when you’re out and about.

How to Marry Filnjar

  1. Locate Filnjar in Shor’s Stone.
  2. Talk to him to get the quest Mine or Yours which involves clearing a number of Frostbite Spiders out of Redbelly Mine.
  3. When you’ve completed the quest return to Filnjar who will reward you with a levelled sum of gold. Once the quest is complete, Filnjar will become a marriage candidate, at which point the usual method for becoming married can be followed.
  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.
