Getting married in Starfield isn’t worth it in all honestly. You get an extra perk for sharing a bed with a companion, but otherwise, not a lot else will change.

Some unique dialogue options are unlocked which may be worthwhile if you want to see everything, but it's not something you should worry about going out of your way to do.

To get married in Starfield, there are a few steps you’re going to need to follow. Thankfully, it works the same way for each companion.

The primary thing to consider with whom you are choosing to romance is their likes and dislikes, and to keep your decisions in line with their tastes.

The only other thing you need to do is make sure they’re joining you on your adventure as your main companion, and when you’re out exploring you can exhaust their personal dialogue options.

Here's a list of all the things you should do to marry one of the four companions in Starfield:

  • Do what companions like, avoid what they dislike  
  • Make sure you flirt whenever you get the chance 
  • Once the relationship mission becomes available, pursue it. This becomes available by the companion confiding in you regarding a secret 
  • After this mission, you can choose to be a romantic companion
  • Keep on travelling with this companion until they mention your relationship - here, you can propose, which will trigger a commitment quest 
  • All that is left to do is plan your big day and get hitched
  • These are the best ships you should try to unlock in Starfield

If you do hit a rocky patch, or realise that you may be committed too soon and would prefer to pursue someone else, you can get divorced. You have an option to tell your spouse you're no longer happy in the marriage and kick off the divorce proceedings. Once you divorce an NPC you can’t remarry them later down the line.
