Skyrim To Allow Gay Marriage

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Screenshots E3 2011: Adventure Awaits!

Bethesda's Pete Hines has confirmed that gay marriage is possible in Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. The news comes, like all news these days, from a tweet. In response to a twitterer's question which suggested Bethesda was being "hush hush" about gay marriage, Hines posted:

"Not hush hush, just not making a huge deal out of it. You can marry anyone."

That's not to say that you can marry any NPC. This isn't Fable, people. Instead, it means guys can marry guys and ladies marry ladies. What's next? Nords marrying Bosmer? (Presumably, that's possble too.)

I totally applaud Bethesda's decision to allow gay marrying in Skyrim, and the fact that they're not making a big deal about it says something about how far we've come, as a culture, on the issue of gay acceptance. RPG characters, like humans, deserve the happiness (and/or misery) that marriage can bring, no matter their orientation. Much like real life, we shouldn't worry about who other people love when there are dragons to be slain.

All of the best people are following Stephen Johnson's twitter feed. Also, email me if you wanna.
