The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – How To Divorce Your Wife

Skyrim does not allow any divorce option so in this guide we will show you how to do that without using mods or killing your spouse. Just some console commands.

Breaking The Bonds

Open up the console and type the following console commands in:

  • removefac 51596
  • player.removefac C6472
  • resetquest 74793
  • resetquest 21382
  • setstage 74793 10

Now close the console, you should see your ex-wife walk away. You are now divorced.

Notice: The console can be opened and closed using ` or , depending on your keyboard layout. They are located between Esc and Tab keys.

Removing Marriage Items

Your Bond of Matrimony ring should be gone because of the command you typed in the console, but if for some weird reason it’s still in your inventory, sell it. This ring is given back to you once you are remarried by Maramal.

Unequip your Amulet of Mara if you’re wearing it.

Arranging A New Marriage

Now if you head to the Temple of Mara in Riften and speak to Maramal you will not see the dialogue for a new Amulet of Mara or about arranging a marriage.

Don’t worry, wait 24 hours in-game time, equip your Amulet of Mara, propose the marriage and go back to Maramal. You can now arrange your marriage.

Can’t find Maramal inside the Temple of Mara? Head to The Bee and Barb as he can sometimes be found there.
