Guy Proposes Using Skyrim Magic Item, She Says Yes

In Skyrim, romancing someone means acquiring the 'Amulet of Mara,' an enchanted piece of jewelry that unlocks dialogue options — one of which allows you to marry other characters. So it was only a matter of time before a gamer used the item in real life in a marriage proposal, really.

"I introduced [my fiancée] to Skyrim — and he enjoys every minute of the game," Sarah Briody explained to me via email. "I love watching him play because we both have very different game styles. We do play other multiplayer games together when we have the opportunity."

But her partner didn't just want her to be an occasional co-op buddy — and the way he expressed this makes it clear that he's grateful to have been introduced to Skyrim, too.

"He gave me the amulet and while I recognised what it was — it didn't really click as to WHAT it was," Briody said. "I put it on and he started to smile from ear to ear. Then he said:

'Is that an Amulet of Mara? I'm surprised someone like you isn't spoken for.'

"Then it finally registered that he was proposing! He got down on one knee and slipped the ring on my finger."

She said yes, of course. Then she took to Reddit to post this picture, which shows both the amulet and her ring:

Aww. Here's hoping they have a Skyrim themed wedding, too.

And in case you're wondering: you can buy the Amulet of Mara, too.


    Very cute :D lucky for him she said yes, would have been nasty if she used unrelenting force shout to say no lol

      Yeah either that or send him on a quest first to retrieve a giant's loincloth before she seems him worthy of her hand.

        Don't forget the 20 or so draugr-filled dungeons you have to go through to finish it...

    Clear my Floordrobe of Draugr and I will consider your request

    My wife wouldn't accept my proposal until I gathered 20 Snowberries, which were a major pain in the arse to find considering how little snow there is West of the Blue Mountains...

    I am totally confused. This article uses the words he and she way too many times and in the wrong places.

    Who is who?

    Is this a man-woman couple, and is the guy the original one who introduced his girlfriend to the game?

    Far out Kotaku.

      makes sense to me.
