Someone on Youtube made a series of videos where he would marry a woman and show the wedding and dialogue options that occur. You can "preview" you possible spouse here: Skyrim Marriage Partner Guides [HD] - YouTube Some wives will make a backhanded insults about your digs when they move in, others will be thrilled. Some, when asked for food, will suggest you should make it for them, others are delighted to provide for you. Not an obvious choice, but Janessa from the Drunken Huntsman makes a very kind and loving wife. She is a pleasure to come home to. Put her in some Legendary Foresworn armor and she looks pretty good. She can go on quests with you and is fairly competent, plus she doesn't mind if you have a darker side or commit crimes. After I had put her in some decent armor I pickpocket her old armor so she wouldn't revert back, consequently she attended the wedding in her underwear. She also wears her underwear around the house.
