    Where did you see this was a possibility? I have never seen anything stating that it was or giving any kind of hint that it may be.

    I don't think you can adopt any children in the game. I have dusted the entire game and would be stated in the guide book. Correct me if i'm wrong, but it would be a cool idea (in a way) or have a child with your wife lol

    I too have only reached the conclusion that it's not possible.

    Well it IS in the South. Pop in some Kid Rock, stock your fridge with some PBR, and give your wife a black eye and you should be approved in no time.

    I believe upcoming DLC will include adoptable children, as well as the capability to build your own house.

    No, you can't adopt children unless there's a mod, and that video showing something about adoption was just for fun by the studio and may or may not be DLC.


    No. [​IMG] That video was the Game Jam:
    "Upon completing Skyrim, the team at Bethesday Game Studios took a week where everyone was given ONE task:

    "Do whatever you want, and put it in the game.""

    It has literally nothing to do with DLC. We may or may not see those things as DLC or mods. It was simply what the game studio's employees did for their own fun.

    Gagh, like all Bethesda games the kids are annoying little brats. Why would you want one as a pet? Midnight snack, maybe.

    why would you want one of those kids? you yourself taught them that if they have a problem they can just kill it, imagine the teenage years...
