Luckily, I’m here to showcase some of the mods that you simply cannot afford to go without. This is by no means an exhaustive list but everything on it is guaranteed to enhance your Skyrim experience, or your septims back! (Note: to download all these mods use the Nexus Mod Manager – see THIS video for full, easy to digest, instructions).
This page contains information on the mods available for Skyrim on PC, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4 Mods for the Special Edition.
How to Install Special Edition Mods
With the release of SkyrimSpecial Edition, the way mods are now certified and implemented into both PC and Consoles have changed, and now work along the same line as Fallout 4. Use the following steps to download and enjoy mods from Bethesda's servers.
Step One: Create and Log in to Bethesda.net
In order to view, download, and play mods, you'll need to register your account to Bethesda.net. When prompted, enter your information and log in to proceed to the Mod Library.
Step Two: Choose Your Mods
You'll now be able to view an expansive selection of player-created mods. You can view the details of a mod, favorite for future use, download, rate, or report a mod by pressing A.
Much like a netflix style queue, the top row will list your current library of downloaded mods, while the row below will list current popular mods, and scrolling down will reveal more curated rows like ratings and categories on what the mod changes.
If you want to search for something more specific, you can also use the libraries search function too. Mods can run the gamut from spawning items, changing weapons, settlements, clothing, characters, and more - even cheats!

Enable Your Mods
Once downloaded, head to the page for the mod you downloaded (easily accessed from the My Library row in the search list, or pressing Y to bring up the order that mods will be loaded), and under 'Favorite' there will be an option to 'enable' the mod. This will ensure that the mod is active when you load up your new modded game.
Some - but not all mods - may be dependant on other mods to work. If this is the case, you will want to change the load order to have the primary mods at the top, with dependant mods lower on the list.
It is important to remember that the Xbox One can support 5 Gigabytes of mods at a time, and the PS4 only 1 Gigabtye. Additionally, Modders for the Xbox One can include external assets while the PlayStation 4 Mods can only use internal assets (meaning only being able to manipulate what is already in the game files).
You can check your capacity in the top right corner. If this becomes a problem, simply deactivate other active mods and swap them in to build a collection that reflects what you want to do with your game.

How to Install Mods for Classic Skyrim
For lists of some of the many types of mods out there for classic Skyrim - see the following sections:
The Nexus Mod Manager, available via the Nexus Mods site, makes it easy to download and install many of the community's best mods with one or two clicks of a button. If you're a bit too apprehensive about diving straight into the Nexus method, a variety of great mods are also available via the Steam Workshop. Simply find the plugin you want to install and hit 'Subscribe' - the mods will automatically install the next time you launch the game.
(Note: the Steam Workshop may not be used for the Special Edition, relying instead on Bethesda.com)
Additionally, new modders need to keep in mind the fact that the work isn't over once all of your shiny new mods are installed. The order that the mods are loaded in, or the 'load order', is crucial to making sure one mod doesn't overwrite or conflict with another. Load order optimizers such as LOOT or BOSS are available to assist in organizing your ever-growing list of plugins.
In Skyrim, you can marry anyone of any gender or race. If you're a male Nord, you could marry a male Orc if you wish! Oh, the possibilities!
However, searching for love can be hard in a world fraught with civil war and dragons. Not everyone is open to the idea of romance in the midst of such rough times. Luckily for you, this list should make your hunt for romance a little bit easier. Maybe things will even lead to Marriage...(Hint: It does).
Want a divorce?
For good or bad there is a way to back out of your marriage in case you find a more suitable partner or got stuck with coyote ugly because you needed a place to couch surf. 'Till death do us part,' yep, you guessed it, if you *ahem* kill your spouse (preferably inside your house to avoid bounty) then you can re-equip the amulet and go searching for another lover, you serial killer you. (Note - it seems that the console versions of the game don't allow a remarry option as of the 1st update, unknown for the second upcoming patch)
