Refusing a marriage proposal..

Have any of you gotten far enough into the romance sub-plot with a companion to the point where a marriage proposal was on the table, and then refused?

I'm not talking flat out spite; pure hatred-fueled rejection, I'm referring to the option where you tell your romantic interest that you're not ready for that step yet.

What I'm wondering is whether or not anyone (kindly) refused the proposal when the option came up, and if so, what sort of conversations did you have with that companion afterwards? Torian offered no affection loss when I told him I wasn't ready, but I've yet to finalize that decision as I'm unaware whether or not that would wholly terminate the relationship.

For all the companions the marriage conversation is either last or second to last, there might be one where its third to last... and the decision on whether you marry or not does not change the number of remaining conversations... it only has the potential to change the content of future conversations.

Yea, I completely agree. I redid my romance conversations like 100x with Kaliyo and Temple. I still regret going with Temple, and my kinda hate that my character ended up getting married with her so early.

I mean it just doesn't feel right to give us this option so early, I mean I know the characters couldn't make it "official" but still, it just felt off... All I am saying is their is a reason most shows have characters get married only after they have pretty much done everything possible that they can with the relationship, break up, get back together, cheat on each other, kill for each other, pine over a love they think they can't get back... etc.

Personally I feel like with my bounty hunter they at least made me wait till the end of chapter 2 to get with Mako, and I am not so sure I want to get married with the character if the romantic relationship took this long just to get started.
In your pants. I'm alluding to your priorities being in your pants. Like, your wiener or weird lady parts that no one understands because they're all tucked in. That's what I was going for. -Coyote

Yeah I figured the marriage conversation would be one of the last ones, which is why I'm still at a considerable loss regarding whether or not to put off accepting the proposal. I'd love to know whether or not refusing opens up another marriage conversation later on, whether you're S.O.L. or whether nothing happens at all.

I guess if this is in fact one of the final conversations with the companion I'll put it off until such a time as there is more follow-up content released.

Hahaha, I'm debating doing that to Quinn on my sith warrior. Playing dark side has some humerous advantages.

I have to admit I can understand saving the romance with the companion till the end of the story, but the marriage should have come later in the games life, I mean it just seems a bit rushed the game just started and I now have the biggest baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy and I'm married....

I wholeheartedly agree! I am a female alien sith inquisitor who has gotten andronikos up to 9000 affection at lvl 40. Now he wants to get married! *** he's a pirate. Also I havnt gotten my last companion yet who is also an Alien... what If I get married and ruin any potential romance with y new companion... It sux. I would kinda like to refuse him and keep up the romantic fling, is that possible?

Well for what it's worth, I didn't pursue marriage with Ensign Temple. I didn't outright reject her - she asked me where I saw myself in 5, 10, 50 years. I had the option of saying "I'd like to be married" and moving it forward that way, but I said something else, like..."It depends where the job takes me", or something like that. Lost a few hundred affection points with her.

Funny thing is, she still calls me her husband and tells me she loves me. Even after I married Kaliyo. Granted, the Imperial Agent is something of a "mack daddy", but that seems like a bug. I don't think they fully worked out the companion content.

Hey, in relationships, sometimes the other person wants to take the realtionship further. That's realism. Now what realism is doing in a game on the other hand...
