My Skyrim Husbands (Video Post)

In my many playthroughs of Skyrim, I’ve gotten really invested in who my character marries each time. Marriage in Skyrim gives you benefits like your spouse cooking you meals (so you eat to bump up your health in a fight), making money for you (so you can buy all the shiny new armor), and giving you a little romance boost when you sleep in the same bed (so you fight better, I think?). But for me, choosing a spouse who fits my character, whether in personality or fighting style, is what truly matters.

Here are my thoughts on my Skyrim husbands so far, and who I’d recommend depending on whether you want a stable house husband or a warrior who can join you in battle. =)

I’d love to hear who your favorite spouses are in Skyrim too. Thanks for watching!

Some games have their own fine-crafted classes you don’t see anywhere else, while others have the more traditional warrior/rogue/wizard breakdown. Whatever the case, I just love having some options. Customizing the game to my personal preferences makes the gameplay experience feel much more personal and enjoyable. And I definitely have a few favorite classes…
