How to Marry Onmund


“Is that an Amulet of Mara? I’m surprised someone like you isn’t spoken for – [Interested in me, are you?] – Well, yes. Why wouldn’t I be? Are you… interested in me?”


Onmund is popular as a husband thanks to his pretty eyes and independent nature. As a Nord, his family didn’t support his dream to become a mage for a long time and he had to fight to make it a reality. You meet Onmund when you play through the College of Winterhold questline and can easily marry him after completing a small personal quest. As well as the usual marriage benefits, Onmund makes for a good mage follower in combat and can be recruited into the Blades.

How to Marry Onmund

  1. Start the College of Winterhold questline and progress until you have finished the quest Under Saarthal.
  2. After completing Under Saarthal, speak to Onmund to trigger the quest Onmund’s Request which will entail retrieving a family heirloom for him.
  3. Once you’ve completed Onmund’s quest, return to him to return the heirloom and he will become a marriage candidate. He can then be married in the usual way.
  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.
