You always amaze me with how good you are at making mods, and this one is awesome as well! One question - if I have a default engagement ring (I've made my own defaults), would the wedding band replace that too or nah?

The green fluid might be the liquid in the Elixir of Life dispenser.

My default has no effect on the elixir Most likely, Maxis planned to add a spoiled state to the drinks, but dropped the idea.
