    To get married in Skyrim you will need to travel to Riften and find Maramal.

    You can normally find Maramal in The Bee and Barb tavern during the day or Temple of Mara at night to sleep. If you cannot find him in either location you may have walked past him while he travels between locations.

    Simply ask him about getting married. He will explain to you the process. Basically it goes like this.

    Step 1. Get an Amulet of Mara.
    There are two ways of getting the Amulet of Mara. Both ways require you pay 200 gold. Your choices are...

    a. Purchase it from Maramal while talking to him. No quest, just move on to Step 2.

    b. If you like quests, find Dinya Balu in the Temple of Mara to start the "The Book of Love" quest. Half way through the second love story that you assist in you will have to pay 200 gold for a poem. At the end of that story (roughly 2/3 of the way through the quest) you return to Dinya Balu where you receive the amulet. Do note that you have to complete this quest before you can use the amulet in Step 2.
    Step 2. Wear the Amulet of Mara in front of the one you want to be your significant other.
    You have to complete a requirement to befriend the NPC before you can propose marriage. There are 30 female and 37 male NPCs you can choose from. Check out for a complete list of who you can marry and what conditions you need to fulfill.
    Step 3. Return to Maramal and tell him you want to be married.
    He will tell you to be at the Temple of Mara at dawn.
    Step 4. Get married.
    Enter the Temple of Mara and use the wait feature to progress time to after 7:00 AM. The game will auto move your character and start the 2 minute long ceremony.
    Step 5. Say yes!

    That is it. You're married and the achievement should pop soon after the priest finishes officiating.

    o IExcisionCamilla Valerius at the Riverwood (Riverwood Trader) is obviously an easy one, as you would have completed the The Golden Claw quest

    The Dawn of DonWhile yes Camilla Valerius is an easy one o IExcision, not everyone wants that NPC to be their partner. That's why I provided the link in step 2 for all 67 partners.

    To get married you will have to travel to the Temple of Mara in Riften. Once here speak to the priest and ask about marriage and how to get married. When you have done this the priest will give you the amulet of Mara which you must equip. Once equipped people may express interest in you (Helps if you complete misc objectives for individual people). If you express interest back then you an arrange to get married (Jesus that was quick!) and you will have to travel back to the Temple for the ceremony. Once the ceremony is complete and you say I do, you will be married and the achievement should pop.
