I'm wondering if there is some hidden connection between two pre-made Sims, Jason Greenman and Jacob Martin. When I started playing the Greenman house, I noticed that Jason was obsessed with Jacob. He wants him to go to college/become a high achiever/get a scholarship, as if he were Jacob's father. But he barely knows Jacob or Jacob's father. The only connection I can find between them is that Jason's niece used to date Jacob.
It's strange because Jason doesn't roll wishes related to his wife, her daughter (who lives in the same house) or even his niece, only Jacob. Is there a reason this would happen? Is there some hidden connection between the two -- maybe Jacob's mother was related to Jason even though it's not shown on the family tree? I'm not seeing any signs that the neighborhood is corrupted, and I haven't been playing it long.
