    I was reading Ben C's build the cursed prophet and in it he tells you to marry Brelyna Maryon (who is my favorite person to marry). I went on a couple of forums and it seems like Ysolda is a popular choice. so im wondering who your favorite person to marry is.

    Lydia, she was my first follower that wasn't terrible at fighting, plus I love her design. I try to only marry followers because I find it to be a dick move when you marry someone and basically say "Well, now that we're married, I will go out on fun adventures surrounding myself with women being gone months at a time where I could be dead and you would never know... You will go home and prepare my sandwhich"... NO!

    I think Emma Watson looks pretty hot, if she where in the game she would be my favourite. Also Scarlett Johansson.

    The only two reasons pick Ysolda... She's a redhead, and a trader...

    She is the only one I can see my canon Dragonborn marrying... Aela would want him to be a wolf (he would like a cure). Ysolda is too easy to marry... Mjoll won't shut up... Marrying Borgahk the Steel-Heart would feel like marrying a prostitute (he paid for her dowery to travel).

    Lydia was his only companion that didn't anger him

    Lydia is no bueno. Jordis or Iona are atleast not acting as if they hate being with you unlike Lydia. They even look better. So if you love marrying woman that hate you and don't want to be near you, good luck:p

    Iona looks terrible and sounds rue to you, Jordis sounds bored, Lydia sounds nicer and more lively

    Every time I talked at Iona she sounded worse than Lydia pre- 1.5 patch because at least then, she wouldnt sound pissed off at me whenever I talk to her.

    You really have them mixed up. Iona has never sounded pissed off. She has always sounded like someone who's friendly and kind.

    Jordis, Sylgia,Janessa or Aela. I married Janessa on my first playthrough because I was a dark elf, Sylgia when I played a human character, and Aela and Jordis on others. They just look the most attractive

    ... You know what... We are just going to be doing this back and forth for awhile... Let's just agree to disagree :)

    That's a paradox.

    Agreeing that you disagree is illogical and contradicting. Hence it's a paradox.

    Hroki, I know you have to use console for her. But I don't mind.

    Well I usually try to reward my followers (yes I know they're pixels) after they have outlived they're usefulness which is about 15-20 levels before enemies start killing them...

    I married Lydia and made Uthgard my steward, my current follower is Serana but only because I can't get rid of her

    I only ever married in Skyrim on my first playthrough back in the day and haven't bothered since.That was with Mjoll but I ruined it by getting her recruited to the Blades. 

    The whole concept of marriage is poorly executed and shallow, for me it breaks immersion rather than adding to it. Nowadays, I could only envision marriage along the lines of how Adrik incorporated it into his Telvanni Wizard.

    The only character that this idea could have worked well with is Serana. Love her or hate her, at least the game gives you the chance to develop a bond with her through occasional dialogue changes and rp discsussions. Of course, Bethy cocked that up.

    That'd be Haelga (or however you spell her name) in Riften buddy :P
