Apparently there is more than one way to acquire the Amulet of Mara which is required in order to get married.

Is it possible to be married to more than one partner at the same time?

    The Amulet of Mara isn't given to your partner, it's just worn to let folks know you're "on the market". – Raven Dreamer Nov 28 '11 at 6:07
  • @RavenDreamer my mistake, do potiential partners still think of you as "on the market" even though you may already have a spouse? – jazzdawg Nov 28 '11 at 6:18


Wearing the Amulet of Mara while you're married no longer triggers dialog options. You must kill your current spouse and wear the amulet to bring up potential "Are you interested" dialog options again.

    +1 sigh though you'd think polygamy would be less offensive than familicide. Yet the second is allowed. Yay for mods? – Annan Nov 28 '11 at 10:26

    Well then I guess someone needs to test, if you slay your spouse and then marry someone else and raise you dead spouse... :) – Holger Nov 28 '11 at 12:20
  • ...only to watch your zombie spouse dissolve into a pile of ashes 60 seconds later. :( – Dave Sherohman Nov 28 '11 at 14:35

    Hmm, yes, but then you could tap that ash.. – user18794 Jan 23 '12 at 1:48

    "tap that ash" sounds like a bad pokemon reference – user18856 Jan 24 '12 at 3:05

This mod claims to allow polygamy.

You could kill your spouse then marry again then do the console command "resurrect" on your dead spouse and then you have 2.

  • When your spouse dies, that's it. You can't remarry. It might be possible to work some setStage magic with this theory, but it'd be complicated. – Unionhawk Jan 13 '14 at 23:08
