To this day I cannot comprehend Bethesda's train of thought concering marriages.

Peon A: "Hey Todd, we're running out of ideas for potential spouses!"

Todd: Hmm....well, we don't have any high elf spouses so far, so let's give the player one at the very least. But make her so absolutely hideous that it defeats the purpose! Oh and throw in that old hag from Windhelm too, nobody cares about her but let's make her a spouse anyway!

....Sometime Later....

Peon B: "Todd, that Serana character has so much potential and backstory! We absolutely must add her to the potential marriage faction!"

Todd: I dunno....an extremely hot vampire chick who follows the Dragonborn on a harrowing adventure to kill her own father? All the while, developing trust for him/her in various arcs? That....doesn't add up. It just wouldn't cut it for someone to marry, it's STUPID, CANCEL LAURA BAILEY'S LINES. I refuse to pay chump change for another 5 lines of marriage dialogue!

Peon A and B: "But....Mr. Howard!"

THE TODD HAS SPOKEN

The fact that they even added marriage in in the first place was pretty brainless.

Nah, they could have done something amazing with it. But considering this is Bethesda, they basically ruined any potential it had.

How about they made it realistic, and had your wife leave you because you only stop off at home for a few hours once a week?
Come home, demand money, food, and "lover's comfort", then head back out.
The Dovahkiin is a horrible spouse, undeserving of being married.
Hell, being able to adopt is even stupid.

Marriage in any game outside of The Sims, is pointless, and stupid.
