    There is no info whatsoever in the game about elven marriage or Eltariel getting married.

    Eltariel was sent to Mordor by Galadriel to kill the Nazguls and she can't go to the Undying Lands untl she completes he mission. That i all that is known so far. Maybe the next game gives more info.

    if you read any of Tolkien's books you might see that elven history wouldn't appear to be so strict in terms with relationships like that. I think if Galadriel wanted Eltariel to do that then she would considering Eltariel's obvious loyalty to her. But realistically, it's not even a possibility of coming into fruition.
    Like Arwen and Aragorn. Elrond, her father, never forced her to be with her elven-kin. He did express moments of disapproval but never would it have come to a point of forced marriage.

    Ofcourse this is just theory. Loyalty wise, I would assume any blade of galadriel would be highly loyal. So what do you mean Galadriel would be considering loyalty? So do you think if Galadriel asked Eltariel to marry some powerful elf lord, would Eltariel consider it or deny it?

    Ah take what I said and put a comma(,) in front of "would" and before "considering" and it'll make more sense lol. I tend to type things a bit too fast so it can become difficult to understand.
    But yeah, of course Eltariel would consider marrying someone of Galadriel's choosing. However, I think she would be hesitant to do so, given her individual characteristics.

    So would she be hesistant because she doesn't know this specific powerful Elf Lord dude that Galadriel has asked her to consider marrying or is it for some other reasons (i.e kinda like Eltariel in her head is thinking "don't tell me what to do Galadriel")? Although the latter doesn't make much sense to me because I can't imagine any Blade of Galadriel to ever being defiant against their big boss lady Galadriel herself. It would be interesting to know what extent of influence Galadriel can have over her Blades. Like marriage, another question that always pops up in my mind is what would Eltariel's response be if Galadriel told Eltariel to use Celebrimbor's ring to dominate Orcs in Mordor? Because keep in mind Eltariel's personal opinion on domination is that it's unethical and that she will not use the ring for such purpose. I would really like to know what extent of influence Galadriel has on her Blades etc.

    She would be hesitant to marry anyone due to the fact that it isn't someone she personally has fallen for. She would definitely be questioning Galadriel's motives at that point. I don't personally believe she would voice a strong opinion against it though unless it was for something outside of her core alignment. Being forced to dominate orcs with the New Ring would probably be what makes Eltariel argue to some extent with Galadriel. However, Galadriel will definitely have a strict response as a reminder of her mission at hand.
    Galadriel should have a very extensive amount of influence over Eltariel in general as Galadriel has been there since the beginning of time IIRC.
    For the most part. I think Eltariel would do anything Galadriel commands her no matter the consequence. The only thing that determines her response would be her psychological characteristics.
