ESO Marriage Guide

Welcome to our ESO Marriage Guide.  Want to level 10% faster when paired with a friend? Elder Scrolls Online allows you to marry a character in game with the Ritual or Mara. My latest guide shows exactly how to do this which is super beneficial if you plan to play with another person throughout the leveling experience.

Before you rush off and say “I do,” in-game, I don’t think there’s anyway to break off the relationship.  So, make sure you and that buddy, lady, boy, or friend are committed to the game.  You’ll need to bring your Pledge of Mara found via in-game mail and also run to your nearest Shrine of Mara shown below on this map.

Now you’ll need to place this item into your Quickslot section of your inventory and find your partner.

Once in the Shrine of Mara area, select your Pledge of Mara via the Quickslot screen (default) by holding Q key and moving mouse over item.  Once this is done, target your soon to be and press Q.

Once this is done, you’ll have a pop up asking you for the big commitment.  Consider his your “I do” statement.

Once you’ve both accepted this, you’ll both receive matching Rings of Mara.  Once you’ve both equipped this in on your characters you’re all set for some added experience.
