A Real-Life Wedding Proposal Inspired By A Skyrim Item

Well now, isn't that sweet.

If you're a role-playing fan, chances are, you've played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. You also might recall a special item called the Amulet of Mara, which is used to unlock various romantic segments. By using this option, you have the chance to marry other characters.

Bet you didn't know it could be used in real life, too. As Kotaku reported, Sarah Briody received a proposal for marriage, and the Amulet of Mara was involved:

"I introduced [my fiance] to Skyrim--and he enjoys every minute of the game. I love watching him play because we both have very different game styles. We do play other multiplayer games together when we have the opportunity."

At first, she didn't know what was happening when her soon-to-be fiance handed her the amulet. And of course, he had the best line prepared for when she put it on: "Is that an Amulet of Mara? I'm surprised someone like you isn't spoken for." An image of the ring on her finger popped up online not long after, and Briody calls it, perhaps fittingly:

"Best. Proposal. Ever."

So, what do you think? Would you propose with a video game item?

I would. But instead of an amulet of mara I'd hand my girl a human effigy "would you rekindle the bonfire with me?"

lol theres an idea if I ever get around to it.

My wife would have rolled her eyes at me so hard. Still would have said yes, though. She just would have called me a big dork first. :D

She isn't a gamer though.

Actually, my proposal was pretty much the opposite, as I sold my XBOX360 to help fund the ring. (I was still a student and dirt poor) And go figure, at my wedding, my dad gives a speech and mentions in it that he knew I must have been serious because I sold the 360 for the ring.

When I gave my speech, I opened with, "It's true that I sold the 360 to buy the ring. But don't worry everyone. I'm not insane. I still have the PS3."

And wow... that was already almost 6 years ago.
