This is a guide to getting married in The Sims Freeplay, it can be a bit confusing so hopefully this guide will help! Firstly you need to unlock the ability for your sims to get married, you do this by completing the Love is in the Air Quest which unlocks from level 7 (you do marry two sims in this quest so this post is just a refresher guide)
If you complete that quest in the time limit you will unlock the wedding dresses and suits as well so future sims can get married in style!
Once the quest is complete adult and senior sims can get married, to do this you need to select the romantic options at each relationship level until you get the option to propose marriage. The table below shows how long it takes to reach the next stage:
|OPTIONS & TIME TAKEN|
|Budding Romance||Kiss Hand
|18 times||3 times|
|36 times||6 times|
(once engaged bar
|6 times||4 times||1 time|
For more detailed information about all Relationships check out my post here
When you get the option to Propose Marriage you will get a list of rings to choose from, starting from the cheapest to the most expensive:
- Vending Machine Dinosaur Ring- S1,750
- Mood Ring- S8,050
- Silver Ring- 3LP
- White Gold Ring- 6LP
- Eternity Ring- 10LP
Which ring should I choose? I always go for the most expensive, mainly because they usually say no if you go for the cheap rings! Why waste more money to just be rejected?
Don’t have 10LP for the ring? Check out my post here on making LP quickly
Once they accept the proposal they will be engaged!
They will then need to be romantic to each other 6 times or woohoo 4 times before they will get the option to Get Married
Your sims can get married anywhere in simtown so you get to choose the house they live in when you select the get married option:
They will take the surname of the sim whose house they will be living in so choose carefully
They will have a quick kiss and then will be married!
Can my sim marry more than one sim? No this isn’t possible, your sims need to get a divorce to marry another sim.

I was wondering how often sims will say yes to the second most expensive ring, the white gold ring? I have 41 lps right now and I’m trying to save for a beachside escape so I want to propose and have them say yes in the cheapest way possible lol 🙂 I also want to say your site has been really really helpful as far as completing quests and stuff so I really appreciate it!!!!
Well everytime I have tried it they say no 😛 I would just use the most expensive as it is cheaper in the long run if you get rejected with the second most expensive one 🙂
The whole wedding, having a baby, aging a baby process costs so much LPs. It’s insane! Once, I used a silver ring and it worked so I thought I could do it again with another couple. Boy was I wrong! Silver ring didn’t work either. I honestly feel like she’s a “gold digger” now and don’t want them to marry (at least until I have way more LPs stocked up). Ridiculous.
Yeah I just use the most expensive ring in the first place, just to guarantee a yes without wasting to much
This post may help you with making some LPs: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/02/27/the-sims-freeplay-15-ways-to-make-money-and-lps/
Can an adult marry a senior?
Well they couldn’t on previous updates
It would costs a lot, but I think it’s worth it especially if you’re a fan.
I’ve got the wedding arch but I have no idea how to use it – do you have any advice, please? I’ve got two sims waiting to use it for their wedding as well!
I have tried and tried to use it but I don’t think it actually does anything unless I am missing something!
I have the eternity ring. It was free. But when I try to propose marriage it says I don’t have enough lps. Idk what to do I have 5 hrs left to complete the goal.
Yeah this is a glitch, you need to have 10LPs to get past this
First, I had 2 sims get engaged. Then, when ready to marry, I had the guy come to girl’s house and the girl chose get married. Now the two are living together in the girls house but both still have their original last names.
Did I do something wrong? Is this a new feature of the September 2014 update? Or is it a bug I should report to fire monkey’s site?
Every time I’ve had sims get married/move in the last name of the household took precedence and I wanted that (in fact named my sims originally planning for that).
Besides using the lp makeover, is there a way I can get the guy’s last name to change? I also don’t want to make the guy move out to try again if it means I’d have use lp to get engaged again either.
When I went to the add a new sim on a vacant home plot I noticed the “relocate a household” refers to that family by the guy’s last name. I want the two to have a baby but don’t want to unless I can be sure the baby will have the last name I wanted (the girl’s).
Have you or any of your visitors experienced this before? If so, Do any thoughts on what I can do?
Thanks so much in advance! Your site has been extremely helpful.
This sounds like a glitch to me, I have had this once before but not on this update
There isn’t really much you can do apart from doing the ultimate makeover for 12LPs if it really bothers you that much, but I personally would just leave it 🙂
You’re welcome! I’m glad it helps! 🙂
I’m sorry if this is the wrong section, I couldn’t find a post on Sims being married. I apologise if there is one.
The sims I had married in the quest, their marriage bar doesn’t fill, as it would do for any other relationship.
Do you know why this is?
Thanks in advance.
This is a post on sims being married! 🙂 Yes their married bar doesn’t fill up anymore once they are married that is it

Hi I’m past this but I wonder why my free lp thing it’s not showin
Sometimes it is there, sometimes it isn’t- I don’t know why, sorry!
Slight tangent but I have “divorce a sim” as a weekly task. I only have one married couple. I guess they can’t have babies after divorce so I’ve started growing one. Question is, will the baby finish growing if I divorce now? Don’t want to waste the LP I spent to have a new baby! Thanks 🙂
I have never heard of that weekly task before, so I have no idea! I would just skip the task with Lps really, it would be cheaper than marrying a new couple!
I’ve had the task now on both my devices! It’s a pain having to do something so negative with my happy Sims. On the upside, and contrary to what Google brings up, the split doesn’t affect the family. You can’t divorce when a baby is being made – it won’t let you. Afterwards you can build the relationship back up and it looks like you could remarry, but why bother – especially if you already have 2 kids.
Yeah it seems ridiculous to me, after wasting LPs on getting them married in the first place!
Hi! Awesome post by the way! I am really addicted to the Sims Freeplay and I got more than ten couples married and eight of them have kids. One of the kids is now engaged and soon to be married.
I was wondering that when one of my Senior Sims was baking cookies, I scrolled down and found the “Wedding Cake” option. What does that do?
Also, I purchased the wedding dress and groom suit from the online store, but I can’t view them. I built the dress shop now because all of the dresses and suits have now been moved there but I can’t find it in there! I purchased it recently because of the upcoming wedding (and the fact is as surprisingly cheap) so I’m not really sure.
My last question is all through out my Sims marriages, they had to be married in a house that they were living in. Before the marriages, my Sims already moved in with each other. But they still had to be married in a house. Is there another way to not to be married in a house?
(BTW, hopefully when they get married, I can take some pictures and send them to you!)
Thanks! The wedding cake doesn’t do anything, don’t waste your LPs on it.
They should all be in the outfit section of the costume and swim store, if you can’t find them there maybe the purchase didn’t go through?
Yes you can, you need to make them good friends to get the option to ‘ask to move in’
Hope this helps!
My seniors have fallen in love late in life 🙂 before I waste the time and energy, do you know, will it allow me to marry them at this stage in life?
I think so, I have never tried it myself though as seniors don’t live long enough in my game to make it worthwhile
(You probably already know this but I figured out once two sims are married you fill the bar by complaining to each other!)
That doesn’t work to make them like each other, it does the opposite once the bar is full it will probably come up with an option for them to divorce
Once they are married the bar can’t increase anymore.
I got the wedding bungle but I can’t find the wedding bungle
It is in the costume and swim store.
So I purchased the two story mansion, and on the backyard there is a wedding arbour. The two sims living there are engaged, and when I click on the arch, there is a Red Cross over their head. What does the wedding arbour do?
It doesn’t do anything, well I haven’t managed to make it do anything anyway 😛
I can’t find my wedding stuff in the wardrobe closet. Where is the costume/swim store? Is that a store you have to build like the children store to get it?
yes you have to build the store.
My sims are married but will not sleep in the same bed
Is the bed next to a wall? If so only one sim will be able to sleep in it as they can’t sleep on the side next to a wall.
Can you please post something about what happens when they get divorced? Where their children live, last name changes, relationship status…etc. I have sims that are married but I want them to have three kids, so I was wondering if I could make them divorce and marry another sim to have the other baby?
Thanks for your blog! 🙂
I will do as soon as I can!
Can you marry sims in a different house (someone else’s)? Or does it have to be their own house?
do you mean can you marry neighbours sims? No you can’t
I have a “divorce a sims” tasks today in my weekly tasks. I get really mad about the idea of divorce so I really don’t know what to do? (I don’t want to waste LPs) So I think I need your help but I’ve read another commenter with a problem just like mine and I’ve also read your conversation with that so I guess I’m going to skip that tasks. Instead of remarrying again with expensive rings and stuff! I REALLY HATE DIVORCE! It’s this time of “wasting LPs in tasks” again. I think your convo with that commenter help so Thanks! Im just sharing cuz’ I really appreciate and love this site!! (Best site ever for Sims Freeplay)
Yeah I would just skip that one with Lps, I know you feel like it is a waste of LPs but think of the LPs you would have wasted by getting them married just for them to get divorced
You’re welcome! I’m glad it helped!
Help! I moved a single lady into a house with a married couple. Then when the single woman got engaged I somehow moved her husband in with them all and I figured I could move them out after I made another house. Once the house was complete I tried to move out one married couple but it will not let me, it says I can only move the household. I want them to have babies and I cannot do that if they are all living together. Do I have to have one couple divorce? Hate to do that, I would have to use LPs to get them remarried….
you could try relocating one of the sims from the house (click relocate a sim on the house options) then you should be able to get their partner to move in with them in the new house.
Hello, I won the wedding dress bundle but haven’t got the costume and swim store yet. Will I still win the bundle when I get the costume store? Thanks!
you should now find them in your wardrobe, in the adult outfit section
I have the hairstyles and shoes but not the dresses and suits
not in the outfit section of your wardrobe?
I have as one task – get engaged but when I try the rings are all greyed out. My other task is to clean a neighbours pool and my neighbours do not have a pool. I have no lps but have over $30,000 simoleons. Is there a way to fix the greyed out rings thing and or delete the task?
The top ring should be the only one that isn’t greyed out, if they are all greyed out you will need to contact EA about this issue
For the neighbour task you can add someone who has a pool or skip with LPs, this post may help for earning LPs if you don’t have any: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2015/01/14/the-sims-freeplay-how-do-i-have-so-many-lps/
I was wondering if anybody knew whether a sim can be married to more than one sim. I currently have a married sim who is a “partner” to another sim, and has the option to propose marriage. I’m curious if anybody has tried it, and if so, what happens? Do the married sims divorce in order for the two sims to marry? Is polygamy possible?
I have just tried it and it says, ‘your sim is already married’ so no you can’t
So yes you would have to divorce to get married to another sim
I see people makng churches for weddings, but I can never manage to get married outside of the house the lovebirds are going to live in. Am I missing a trick?? Thanks love your site.
no you aren’t missing something, you can only marry sims at the house they intend to live in
What if I don’t complete the “love is in the air” quest in time can I still some how purchase the wedding dresses and suits?
No sorry you can’t
I really love your blog. It helped me a lot. Love it !!
I want to ask can you give name to your sim after you create him/her. When i create a sim, my ipad crash in the middle of the process. When i turn it on again, he doesn’t have a name. Can you help please ..
Sorry if i ask a question in wrong section.
Thanks! I’m glad it helps!
Yes you can, you need to use the ultimate makeover, this post explains how you do it: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/08/14/the-sims-freeplay-ultimate-makeover/ it does cost 12LPs though!
Hey, I know this is a little off topic but, do you know how to change a sim’s last name when they are already married ? Well, I meant my female sim to get my male sim’s last name but instead it was the opposite ! If there is a soluton please reply . Thanks !!!
The only way you can change their names is by using the ultimate makeover: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/08/14/the-sims-freeplay-ultimate-makeover/ but it does cost 12LPs

Hi! I was wondering if you move out one of your married sims to a different house, would they be divorced? Could I still have them married?
no they wouldn’t be divorced, you will have to do negative interactions to divorce your two sims
So I just engaged my two sims, and I want the guys face to show on the house. I just built another house, and I tried all 4 combinations- guy moves out, girl asks, guy moves out, guy asks, girl moves out, girl asks, girl moves out, guy asks. But no matter what I do, the girls face shows! I already have two other girls faces showing on my other two couples houses, and I want a guys face to show on my other two. Please help! I just wasted my money- went from 20,000 to 2,500!
There isn’t much you can do really, I think you are just going to have to put up with the girls face showing
Too bad. Oh well.
Thank you so much! Definitely followed! 🙂
I would like to know if I can still get married anytime if I didn’t make the deadline? Please help thanks
Yes you can
I recently finished the Love is in the air quest before my time was up. So where are my wedding stuff? The dress & all?
it does say on the love is in the air post, build the costume and swim store to find them in the wardrobe.
Wow you are so amazing about this stuff! How long have u been playing ??????
Thanks, about 3 years now!
I just spent ages getting 2 guys to be partners but there’s no option to get engaged or move in! Is that just a boy girl thing?
no you can definitely have same sex marriages!
