Gamer proposes with a Skyrim enchanted item

A video gamer introduced to The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim by his girlfriend proposed to her in the most appropriately Skyrim way possible: with a real-world representation of the item that enables marriage within the game.

Sarah Briody received the "Amulet of Mara" from her fiancé. In the game, the amulet unlocks special dialogue options, including the ability to marry other characters.

Briody told Kotaku that her fiancé gave her the amulet and it didn't register at first what it meant. When she put it on he said, "Is that an Amulet of Mara? I'm surprised someone like you isn't spoken for." Then he took a knee.

For those wondering, he gave her an engagement ring, too. And she said yes.
