Maru is an NPC and one of the twelve marriage candidates who lives in Stardew Valley.

Maru grew up with a carpenter and a scientist for parents, Maru acquired a passion for creating gadgets at a young age. When she isn’t in her room, fiddling with tools and machinery, she sometimes does odd jobs at the local clinic.  Friendly, outgoing, and ambitious, Maru would be quite a lucky match for a lowly newcomer such as yourself… Can you win her heart, or will she slip through your fingers and disappear from your life forever?[1]

When you give Maru the Mermaid Pendant she accepts, and says the ceremony will be in three days ( she will sort out everything). Immediately after you go to sleep on the second day, a cutscene happens in which Lewis declares you married (this cutscene apparently uses up no time at all)

You appear back Home after the marriage cutscene with Maru standing on the porch,she says she watered all the crops and put water in your pet's bowl. A smaller version of her old room has been installed in your house attached to your bedroom.
