Same-sex marriage is a hot-button issue in the American political space – well, a hot-button issue for some. Even supposing the industry would like to keep videogames completely devoid of any political tendencies, the reality is that nearly any form of entertainment that allows for you to make choices could present some alleged moral conundrum. If developers place marriage as an option in their game, there is the inevitable question: can you marry someone of the same-sex?

According to a Twitter exchange between Bethesda's Pete Hines and a fan, you'll have the ability to marry whoever you want – in regards to gender – in "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim."


The issues of homosexuality and same-sex marriage are nothing new for videogames. Most recently, BioWare addressed the concept through the "Mass Effect" and "Dragon Age" franchises, with both series allowing players to engage in intimate behavior with any applicable character, regardless of their character's gender. Impressively, BioWare has never acted coy about their stance on the subject, with the company's David Gaider stating that "Dragon Age 2" was for "everyone," not just the "straight male gamer."

Today, Bethesda's vice-president of marketing, Pete Hines, stated that "Skyrim" would not prohibit players from marrying how they pleased. Hines made the comment in response to a tweet asking if same-sex marriage would be an option.

"Not hush hush, just not making a huge deal out of it. You can marry anyone," Hines said, adding later "Should clarify. Not any NPC, just any male or female. Doesn't matter what you're playing."

Personally, I think Hines is absolutely spot-on in his response. Bethesda isn't making a big deal out of it, because it isn't a big deal. Much like real life, if you're opposed to same-sex marriage, there's a very simple course of action: don't enter into a same-sex marriage
