Finally figured out getting married and having babies!!! This wi
Ok guys I have finally figured all of this out! I have all my sims married and 2 babies that have grown into toddlers. If you do everything I tell you then you should not have any problems.
First off you do not need to have your sims living separate to get married it's perfectly fine if they already live together.
Second make sure your sims have the highest relationship possible(I think it's partner) and I know it completely sucks but you have to wait until you receive the task to make your sims get married. Until you receive the task you WILL NOT have the option to get married. So it's very important to complete your task because then the sooner the marriage task will come. Don't get discouraged it will eventually come(I believe I was on level 16 or 17 before it finally came).
You DO NOT have to pay for your first wedding ring. Once you get the task a screen will pop up and it will say something about giving you 20 life points to buy the ring.
I had read that it's best to buy the expensive ring otherwise your sim will get turned down, so I went ahead and bought the 20 lp one. But on all my other sims I bought the 10 and even the 5 one time and they all expected. I'm not saying it works for everyone but it was fine for me.
Now for having babies.....again you HAVE to wait until the task comes up....I know it sucks but that's what you have to do.
I do not remember if they gave me life points to buy the crib. So make sure you have enough for that.
I put all my babies in the middle of the room. I read alot about people saying their sims would not take care of their children. I never had this problem a I have to wonder if it's because I mad sure the cribs were easy to get too. Because if it's against the wall the sim might not be able to get there.
I do not remember if you have to wait for the task to have your babies grow into toddlers, I believe you do but I'm not sure. But it cost 10 life point to have the, grow up but the first time they give you the points. What you have to do is go to the stove and bake a birthday cake(which is what cost 10 life points) and then you have to wait 24 hours for you cake to bake then you can have the birthday
They have not came out with a update to make your toddlers grow up yet...and just a little hint...
Your toddlers take forever to do anything. It takes 45 mins for a bath and 1 hour for food, 20 minutes to be talked to and 30 seconds for the toilet. So it's a good idea to leave them as babies for a while because their task are completed fast and it's much easier to take care of them.
I hope this helps I know this game is very confusing!!!
