The Amulet of Mara is, as we all know, the path to marriage in Skyrim. One decided to play by Skyrim rules in real life, leading off his marriage proposal with a gift of the amulet.
According to Kotaku’s Patricia Hernandez:
“I introduced [my fiance] 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 recognized 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.”
Awww. That’s sweet. Let’s wish them a happy marriage, and hope their kids don’t turn out like Braith.
