Skyrim marriage and children explained
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has hit the world by storm, well maybe not the world just yet but you know what we mean. There seems to be no end to what you can do with this game, and to many will offer an endless experience. We are not saying that Skyrim is perfect, not in any way, as there are a few bugs and glitches, but these should be fixed in time. Having already covered many aspects of the game, we thought that we would now take a closer look at marriage and children.
Marriage in Skyrim is a strange affair, as there is a process that you need to do in order to show that you are ready for commitment. The way to do this is by wearing something called the ‘Amulet of Mara’. The moment that you have it on you will notice that members of the opposite sex will start talking to you more than usual.
There are a few tips that you can try in order to increase your success in marriage, which IGN UK explains how. Once you have the amulet on you then go up to an NPC who starts to pay you some attention. You will know if there is a chance of romance because you’ll be engrossed in further dialogue, it’s then up to you if you want to take the relationship to the next level. If you then wish to marry the person, you will need to talk to Maramal who will be at the Temple of Mara, as this is where the wedding needs to be arranged. The best part is how fast it all happens, it take just 24 hours from the moment you show an interest in a member of the opposite sex to the wedding ceremony taking place.
Then we have the whole thing about the children. There have been a few issues with these little tikes within the game. We know that you are unable to choose these as a playable character, but the things that they do in the game can anger you.
Skyrim is a lot like real life, as kids get bullied all the time, and this happens a lot in the game as well. There are times when you just want to intervene and stop it from happening, but you are not allowed to harm children in anyway in the game – which is how it should be in real life really. Bethesda has made it where you can interact with the children and also hit them, but you cannot harm then in any way.
