“Look at you. Wearing an Amulet of Mara. Are you saying you’re available? – [Interested in me, are you?] – You are pleasant company, more than pleasant. And what about you? Would you… be interested in a life together?”

Njada Stonearm’s MaRRIAGE DIALOGUE

Like the other marriageable characters from The Companions, Njada Stonearm is a formidable fighter to have by your side as a follower. Although strangely, even though her class is warrior, she has many skill similarities to a thief class, with proficiencies in Sneak, Pickpocket and Speech.

Speaking of speech, one thing to keep in mind with Njada is that she has quite a harsh personality. When you first meet her she outright disdains you, but after completing the Companions questline her attitude softens a little. Even after marriage though, she can still be quite hard-edged in her speech.

While this may be offputting to some players, others find it a refreshing change. This is because most spouses become sickly-sweet in their dialogue after marriage, constantly espousing their love for the Dragonborn. Njada, on the other hand, keeps some of her pre-marriage sass. For example, this is her response when you ask her to cook you a Homecooked Meal:

“I should be asking you the same question, but alright, I’ll cook. Here try this, and don’t you dare ask for another one before tomorrow!”

How to Marry Njada Stonearm

  1. Visit Njada Stonearm‘s home: Jorrvaskr in Whiterun.
  2. Speak to the leader of the Companions, Kodlak Whitemane, and ask to join the Companions, to start the Companions questline.
  3. Complete the questline and ask Njada to be your follower. Once you have recruited her as a follower the usual process for getting 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.
