Ok so I just married Camilla to test a previous question of mine. I got married to her in the temple and requested she moved into the house I bought in whiterun. Well after so I waited twelve in game hours then fast traveled to whiterun. She was not at my house. So I checked riverwood. Not there. I've tried to fix this glitch and it's not working. So I'm reloading my save from before I bought the house. Now who is the easiest female human spouse to get? I'd rather not see the same glitch or otherwise again if at all possible.

There's a table with all the possible spouses found on the Elder Scrolls Pages article on Marriage. I removed the non-humans from the female list and copied it below:

Which one of these is easiest will depend on your character, where you are in the game, what you've done and acquired, and so on.

If you've already done the required quest for someone, like completing the Companions quest line for Aela, then that would probably be easiest.

Assuming you've done no quests, the easiest would probably be Ysolda, if you have a mammoth tusk or know where to get one, or Uthgerd, as you simply have to beat her in a brawl. If you find brawling difficult or too time-consuming, you could lower the difficulty level first. Both of these women are found in Whiterun.

Iona and Mjoll are both in Riften, where the temple is, but both require completing quests.

    If you want to brawl with Uthgerd, you'll probably want to lower the difficulty. Brawling on Legendary is just bad...

  • @Nelson I find brawling comically easy. I normally don't even get hit.

  • It's not an issue of dying. It's an issue of how much time it takes. You do almost no damage on Legendary difficulty. You should try it without the +punch damage gloves... it takes a while...

  • @Nelson I may have had additional damage gloves before, that's not normal. You're right it takes a while. Just kite them until it's over. If you don't think that's easy, then of course that wouldn't be the easiest one for you.

    Never said it is "hard". I just said it is "bad" as in really, really boring and tedious... :) At least I find it to be really boring to brawl for 10 minutes. Plus if you hit another person you just got yourself into a huge mess of trouble.
