“Is that Lady Mara’s amulet? I’m shocked a fine person like you isn’t married already. – [Interested in me, are you?] – You have a kind heart. I’d be honored to walk by your side until the trees themselves fade away, if you would have me.”

Shahvee’s Marriage DIALOGUE

The only marriageable female Argonian in the game, Shahvee can be found hard at work at the Windhelm Docks. Shahvee is a reformed thief who now cheerfully earns an honest living working long hours on her tanning rack. She has a friendly and positive attitude and can be married easily by completing a small personal quest for her. While not a trainer or follower, many players find Shahvee’s warm nature and inspirational dialogue reason enough to marry her.

How to Marry Shahvee

  1. Locate Shahvee at the tanning rack on the Windhelm Docks in Windhelm.
  2. Talk to her and ask about her bad luck, she will ask you to retrieve a stolen amulet for her. Agree to this to trigger the start of the quest Shahvee’s Amulet.
  3. Retrieve Shahvee’s amulet and return it to her to complete the quest. She will now be a marriage candidate and can be courted in the usual manner.
  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.
