Very few Skyrim players get married

What does it say about gamers and how they spend their time in Bethesda's massive role playing game? (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

Isn't the point of Skyrim to avoid relationships?
WildArmed  +   1003d ago
I thought Skyrim was a long term relationship?

no, there are alot of benefits to getting married.

I still dont plan to, however.

Thats because playing Elder Scrolls games can be addictive and eat into your real life..... Wait were we talking about something else?

At least you don't have a cell phone in skyrim lol.
Wife: Honey dinners ready.
You: 5 minutes I'm just slaying a dragon.
*6 minutes later*
You: I'm home.
Wife: Were the f*ck where you, now your f*cking dinners cold you.

Too right. They need to make marriage interesting and fun.

They must have been trying to be realistic...
Raf1k1  +   1003d ago
Maybe so but TBH it would have been nice to have some interesting uses for the wife.

I think the article is referring to Skyrim players in REAL life...

"Very few Skyrim players get married"

Yeah, that's because we're all too busy playing the fuck outta this game for the next several months!

And that goes for in-game marrying and out of game too.

Unless your wife can make you a sandwich then I really see no reason to get married....

Sandwich make you strong. Better ask scouts mom to make it.

Call off the wedding!!!
I was about to get married in Skyrim and then at the last minute called off the wedding. It was pretty funny! Everyone was leaving and telling me to just go. Your soon to be wife telling you, how could you do this. Im wondering if i could still get married to someone else in the game after pulling this stunt. Too much!

I'm having too much fun having Lydia carry all of my burdens to marry her, although that's about the only reason I'm going out of my way to keep her alive.

I prefer to take Uthgerd the Unbroken with me, since she doesn't complain about carrying my stuff, but she does look pretty rough for a woman... and she's noticed my amulet of Mara. Needless to say my character is still unchained.

The issue is how mundane a concept it is. Why do I WANT to get married in a freaking game? What's next, virtual bill collectors and a virtual IRS as well? Wheeeeeeee FUN!!!

Marriage in Skyrim seems like a poorly implemented afterthought. It really doesn't add much and doesn't feel like marriage from a roleplay perspective. To make matters even worse, some race/gender combinations have no logical options when it comes to getting married.

There are as far as I know no male Khajiit in the game that my female Khajiit can marry, so I have to do something odd like marrying a nord or use the console commands to mod my current male Khajiit companion into an NPC that can be married. Since it seems that using console commands to alter the game doesn't affect your Steam achievements, I may just have to do that. It still feels like a cheat though and doesn't add much. Married or not, he is still going to be the guy who takes all the beating for me while I snipe the enemy and carries all my crap out of the dungeon lol.

I was too busy doing other things than to think about marriage. However there's a cute Dinner that im interested in , in the college.

I got married for the trophy and that's about it. My wife is very ineffectual and awkward. The entire marriage thing seems like a big afterthought and really is pretty pointless. The 500 gold she gives me every couple of days is next to nothing. The bitch doesn't even clean the house, if I knock something over she just looks at it and then tells me to be careful on my next adventure. I'm also fairly certain she doesn't even know my name, she just calls me "you" or "lover" although we've never even slept in the same bed together. Oh, and I've yet to see this so-called "store"...where, exactly, does she get all that money from? I just assume she's whoring herself out to the menfolk of Solitude while I'm away and I don't really care to be honest.
