This mod adds an option for marriage with no romance, called a Marriage of Convenience. This could be useful if you want your sims to get married for practical reasons and not sustain a romantic relationship.

NOTE: THIS IS A TEMPORARY MOD. Creator MizoreYukii (https://mizoreyukii.tumblr.com) is working on an in-depth Arranged Marriage mod that will make this mod completely irrelevant, to be released later this year. When her mod comes out this mod will be deleted and no longer supported as hers' will have better features and support.

HOW IT WORKS
The Marriage of Convenience option shows up in the Romance category as a social interaction. It is a test based on friendship rather than romance score and should always be visible. If the target sim accepts, they will become engaged with no romance bar or enamored sentiments.

At that point, you can get married at the arch with the "perform marriage ceremony" interaction.

NOTE: If you elope, or use the normal marriage ceremony interactions, there will be a small increase in romantic relationship. If you want to avoid activating the pink bar, use the "perform marriage ceremony" interaction.

LIMITATIONS: The animations for the marriage ceremony are still the same - your sims will still look at each other lovingly and kiss at the end.

THIS MOD REQUIRES THE XML INJECTOR. You only need one iteration of the XML Injector so if you've downloaded it before, no need to download again.

Perfect for those LPs where you want to scam another, like if you want to pretend to your friends and family you finally met someone, or if you want to play an inheritance blackwidow storyline, or an more serious immigration storyline and get in depth about a real world matter. Thank you, this is excellent.

This is so awesome! I really love the realism and broader applications that this mod could have. Do you know if this would conflict with the autonomous marriage mod from polar bear sims for example? or any of lumpinou's mods?

Great, I'm so glad you like it! I haven't tested it with Polar Bear's mod, but I have most of Lumpinou's mods and it seems to work fine with it. It really shouldn't conflict with anything because it doesn't modify any game files and creates a unique interaction that is essentially a non-romance clone of what's already in game. That being said, autonomy is set to false for these interactions so hopefully even with an autonomous proposal mod, you shouldn't have your characters accidentally ending up in loveless marriages!

Hi, in my game the option to marry does not appear correctly. the symbol of hearts appears but the phrase is not there. I don't have any other mod. my game is in Portuguese.

I do not know why, but this mod does not appear in my game, do you know if there are other mods it does not work with?
