How do you get married and have kids?

Posted by Tiffany on February 3, 2010 at 10:37 AM (CST)


There are actually two parallel relationship paths in the game: If you reach the point of being “Good Friends” or “Best Friends” with someone you can no longer date them without brining your relationship back down to simply being “Friends.”

Essentially, at the “Friend” level you must choose to either make lots of romantic overtures to take the romance path with the other sim, or make simple friendly gestures to simply take the “best pals” path. Note that not every type of relationship is possible with any given sim—just like in real life, some people just aren’t interested and you’ll never get beyond “Friends” no matter how hard you try.

Once on the romance path you can get married and cohabitate but there are no kids in the iPhone version of The Sims 3 (at least not yet).

You can start a romantic relationship by tapping romantic….. Then as the realationship builds up you can woohoo but I’m still figureing out how to have a baby….. The pc version is soooooo much better this one kinda sux I think it was a waste of my money becauz sereiously u can’t even customize there face and they look retarded and there’s not that much stuff to choose from…. Somebody needs to figure out how to get cheats for it without jailbreaking because everytime I jailbreak my iPod touch 8gb the new one it says I have to restore it everytime it runs dead or I have to reboot it

How do u have kids on the sims for itouch? I know you can but I don’t know how! It’s bugging me.

To start romantic relationship you have to do romantic things when you meet them. To make them move in and “WooHoo” (:D) you have to be in a romantic relationship already. I hope this helped. Sent from my iPod Touch.
