Tips & Tricks

  • If you want a Romance Sim to marry and not have their aspiration bar fall low, make their secondary aspiration family. You need The Sims 2: Freetime to get a secondary aspiration.
  • Romance Sims may not be so rejectful of marriage if it is to a rich sim. This had happened with an apartment roomie who married my sim and was happy because my sim was rich. You may also trigger this by making money their secondary aspiriation.
  • It is never recommended--unless, of course, you want a challenge or some ugly marital drama--to marry a Romance Sim with a Family Sim, as their wants will clash. Family Sims want to get engaged and married, while Romance Sims normally fear engagement and marriage; as a result, an engagement/marriage between Romance and Family Sims will often greatly boost a Family Sim's aspiration while severely lowering the Romance Sim's. The Family Sim will want to have children and raise them carefully, and Romance Sims will wish to WooHoo, go on dates and find other lovers all the time.
  • For these reasons, if you're looking to have a stable family, it's generally considered a poor strategy to have a Romance Sim marry, since in order to keep their aspiration score high, they will effectively be required to cheat on their spouse.
  • When a Romance Sim falls in love with another Sim, they immediately gain a want to have multiple loves at once.

Player Stories

  • Never, EVER make a Sim with the Romance Aspiration if you want them to have a family. I learned that the hard way, thinking that because the Sim would be romantic, it would want to fall in love, get married, have children, etc. When I had it do all of those things, though, its aspiration meter dropped so low it would conk out. After a while, it started to get kind of funny, actually. Ha!
