“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.

Vilkas’ Marriage DIALOGUE

Some of us are Farkas kinda people – kind, dumb, loveable. And others prefer his brother Vilkas – much smarter, maybe not so kind, still loveable depending on your tastes. The more cunning half of the well known and loved Jorrvaskr based siblings, Vilkas is a formidable warrior, can be recruited into The Blades, and offers his skills as a Master-Level Two-Handed trainer (which you can get for free by taking back the money you pay him if he’s your follower). What more could you ask for in a hubby?

Like the other marriageable members of The Companions to ask for his hand you’ll need to complete The Companions questline and take him on as a follower before you pop the question.

How to Marry Vilkas

  1. Visit Vilkas’ 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 Vilkas to be your follower. Once you have recruited him 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.
