Fire Emblem Awakening: Marriage and Children
This page will have a marriage guide/information on marrying and on children in Fire Emblem Awakening.
 How does marriage work
Two characters can get married, allowing you to recruit a child with inherited skills and modifiers.
 Marriage Rules
In the Marriage System in Fire Emblem Awakening, both characters must be the opposite sex. There are no same sex marriages in Fire Emblem Awakening.
 Building Relationships
Build unit relationships via conversations and by pairing them in the battlefield.
After two characters get married, Paralogues (side quests) become available in which you can go recruit a level 10 child.
 Child Skills
Skills are passed on to the children from their parents. The last skill (most bottom) of the parents are inherited by the children. Rearrange the skills if necessary (use "Equip Skills") Some skills cannot be passed on due to class restrictions.
