Is it safe to leave your stuff in your wife's house? Or will it disapear in 48 hours like anything in a dungeon?

If "your spouse's house" is never mentioned in the duplicate question, or subsequent answers, is it the same question? –  Kurley Nov 15 '11 at 15:57

This is not a duplicate. The answer to the other question is "stuff stored in YOUR house is safe". This question is, "after marrying, does a spouse's house become YOUR house, and thus safe?" –  Raven Dreamer Nov 15 '11 at 17:15
    
A simple way to test if your items can be stored safely in your spouses house is to place a non-valuable item there and leave it for a while, checking occasionally to see if it disappears (you can gather all of their items in the house in the meantime) . –  user14663 Nov 17 '11 at 21:11

Ive had my items stored in my spouses house for around two weeks and they are still there, so, yes I believe containers in your spouses house are safe. EDIT: They have been there for several months now without loss. Your spouse's house is safe.

Cell reset is longer than two weeks (it's 30 days), so that doesn't prove they're safe. –  SevenSidedDie Nov 17 '11 at 5:03

Some containers are safe, but not all. Luckily the chest I put my reagents in didn't reset, but the chest I put my Ore as well as the Barrel I put my food in both reset at least partially.

Doubtful. Any house that is not actually one you can buy and call your own in-game would not be safe. Except for certain exceptions, virtually all houses and buildings reset the items in them eventually.

On a relatively unrelative note, some of these exceptions are:

  • Helgen Inn: "The ruined inn in Helgen features a wardrobe and an end table that can be used for storage, both of which do not reset. The inn also features a perfectly preserved and functional bed. This makes for a very useful shelter at the beginning of the game, however the fort may spawn bandits if not visited for some time."

  • Sleeping Giant Inn: The chest in the secret Blades room is safe.

Best of luck.

I wouldn't store anything in your spouses house. After marrying uthguard the unbroken, I stored things in her house. For a little while it worked fine, then one day I came back to empty chests, and all my loot unique items and everything else was gone!!!! On a separate note, any quest items (the type you can't remove from your inventory) remained in the chest. I don't know if this was a glitch or not, but it sure pissed me off

yes it is 100% safe you should do it all the time! it also helps if you help her first!

Before I had a house, I kept my stuff in a barrel in Whiterun next to the smith. I guess it was kind of like a safe deposit barrel. :D And nothing ever disappeared from there.
