Skyrim has a lot of options on the roleplaying side of the game. Your character can be friendly and flirt and can even enter into a marriage with another character if the Amulet of Mara is present. It unlocks certain dialogue that’s not otherwise available. So, when Sarah Briody’s boyfriend wanted to propose and incorporate their mutual love of Skyrim into the special occasion, he gave Sarah an Amulet of Mara first.
Sarah told Kotaku:
“He gave me the amulet and while I recognized what it was—it didn’t really click as to WHAT it was. I put it on and he started to smile from ear to ear. Then he said:
‘Is that an Amulet of Mara? I’m surprised someone like you isn’t spoken for.’
“Then it finally registered that he was proposing! He got down on one knee and slipped the ring on my finger.”
D’aww! As you can see from the picture above, she of course said yes.
