    Would it be possible to mod the game so you can marry more than one person?
    Multiple waifus and husbandos for everyone! (for people who can't choose just one).

        Even normal marriage in the game is already buggy :(

        I do like the idea though.

          we could edit a save to see if the AI can handle it before going any further.

            Please do! :love:

            I've seen someones spouse walk into the void. It needs some bugfixes, yes. :proper:

              It's possible, but only when a ModAPI starts modifying game-code.
              The way marriage currently works in the game, it basically only knows you're ever married to one NPC, editing a save would only bug the functions that attempt to get your spouse based on the name.

                Then I will have to wait and hope until such a ModAPI is developed first.

                  It's possible ConcernedApe will make it a feature in the future, who knows c:

                      if they just return the first spouse found it wouldnt end the world at least.
                      other possible issue would be them getting stuck when spawning in the same location
                      or one of them having dead AI
                      worth testing in any case.

                        Can we call this polyamory instead of polygamy? :D

                          It could go either way I guess? Polyamory can lead to polygamy and I think the game allows you to be romancing multiple people before you marry so in a sense it already allows polyamory.

                            But what we are asking for is in fact polygamy, the term polygamy basically means "many marriages" but it can also relate to having a number of relationships where there is a sense of having some kind of spousal commitment to a number of people at the one time where as polyamory instead means "many loves" and the relationship aspect in this type of lifestyle does not mean that marriage exists, but instead the person has some form of a serious relationship with a number of people at the one time. This can, therefore, mean that they may date one person whilst living with another, but there is no sense of any formal certificates or paperwork that show they are in some kind of a serious relationship with anybody

                              Good point, I guess that polyamory is already technically a "feature", haha. However, continuing to date the others while being married would be a nice addition.

                                  might have to wait for Storm's public release before anything can be done about this unfortunately.

                                  SMAPI wont be able to handle it easily.

                                      I'm actually looking for one thing that would make polygamy and the mod i want to work on happen.. Where does the game label that you are married and to whom.. If that can be found i will take a crack at making a polygamy mod and an infidelity mod

                                        Maybe just call it Poly* ^_^ Covers marriage and dating then ey? I am keen for this to either be added to the game or an in depth mod. By that i mean, maybe you cannot marry/date X if you're also with Y because of clashes (related to one another, don't like each other) and some 'combos' can be super great! Like say Abby and Seb <3

                                        Been thinking about this a lot - I'm poly myself and find choosing only one person to marry really hard T^T

                                          Unfortunately this cannot be done, the whole "is married" system revolves around a single field, (Farmer.spouse) holding the name of your spouse, without effectively rewriting every single bit of code involved with the spouse (Not doable) there just isnt a way to allow multiple spouses.
