“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?”

Ria’S mARRIAGE Dialogue

If you want a marriage partner who also joins you in combat as a follower, Ria has a unique benefit in that she is one of the few followers in Skyrim who will naturally duel wield one-handed weapons. She’s also one of the crowd favourites when it comes to supposedly attractive spouses and can be recruited into The Blades.

How to Marry Ria

  1. Visit Ria‘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 Ria 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.
