Unfortunately, Skyrim does not allow marriage with vampires, but you can download a mod that allows you to marry Serana.
In this action role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can customise and control a character to explore the fictional world of Tamriel.
The game is set 200 years after the events of Oblivion and it takes place in Skyrim, which is the northernmost province of Tamriel.
In Skyrim, you can marry a non-player character, though some players have wondered if they can marry Serana.
Marriage in Skyrim
You can marry any NPC in Skyrim, regardless of race and gender. In order to get married, you have to complete the The Bonds of Matrimony quest. It involves speaking with Maramal about marriage and wearing an Amulet of Mara.
This Amulet signifies that you are available to be married. Once you have found an NPC who also wishes to be married, you can get their consent to marry you and then attend the wedding ceremony at the Temple of Mara.
Spouses can provide a variety of benefits after marriage, such as making home-cooked meals, which boosts health, stamina, and Magicka regeneration by 25 percent for 600 seconds.
Can you marry Serana in Skyrim?
There are several NPCs in Skyrim, however, not all of them are eligible for marriage. Many players have wondered if they can marry Serana, who is one of the characters who can become your follower in the Dawnguard downloadable content (DLC).
This means that you first have to purchase and install the DLC before you can encounter Serana. Unfortunately Serana is a vampire, which means that you cannot marry her as Skyrim does not allow marriages with vampires.
However, there is a method that you can follow to marry Serana. You first have to finish the prerequisite side quest, called The Bonds of Matrimony. To obtain the quest, you have to speak to Maramal, who can be found in the Temple of Mara in Riften.
Maramal will ask you to bring him the Amulet of Mara, which can either be bought or obtained from Dinya Balu. When you have finished the quest, you have to close the game and open Nexus Mods.
On the website, you can download the mod that allows you to get married to a vampire. Marriable Serana is one of the most popular mods and it has more than 360 000 downloads.
If you are unable to find this mod, you can install the “Marry Me Serana” mod from Nexus Mods.
Once you have downloaded the mod, you have to install it and ensure that it activates in Skyrim to marry Serana.
Installing a mod
Once the mod has finished downloading, you can open the .zip folder and extract its contents. You have to move the contents to Skyrim’s Data folder on your personal computer. This folder can be found in your installed games directory.
After all of this is done, you can launch Skyrim. However, you have to ensure that Harkon, Serana’s father, is killed through the questline.
You then have to talk to Serana’s mother, Valerica, to tell her that it is safe to return to Castle Volkihar. Only then will you be able to propose to Serena.
PlayStation and Xbox Serana mod
If you are playing Skyrim on a PlayStation or Xbox, you can still procure the mod that allows you to marry Serana.
On PlayStation, you can search for the “Marry Me Serana” mod in the game’s mod menu. Xbox players, on the other hand, can use the Marriable Serana mod as is.
Keep in mind that extracting and moving the mod file is a bit more complicated on a console than on a personal computer, but you can still mod your file accordingly.
Can you have children with Serana?
Unfortunately, players cannot have children with any NPC in Skyrim. However, as you progress in the game, you may encounter orphans on the street. If you talk to them, you will be able to adopt them, but you need to own property to adopt them.
That being said, you can download a mod, Fertility Adventures, that allows players to have their own children. It focuses on delivering unique dialogue lines for different NPCs during their pregnancies.
Moreover, you can discuss the idea of having children when you marry your spouse, including Serana.
There is also a chance that Serana will ask you how you feel about having children when you have this mod installed.
