Harvest Moon Boy & Girl - Courtship and Marriage FAQ
For Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town on the Game Boy Advance, Giving someone an item that they like will raise their friendship points for you. Giving them something that they dislike will do the opposite. The rival couples are: Ann == Cliff Elli == Doctor Karen == Rick Mary == Gray Popuri == Kai.

How to Marry Ann from Harvest Moon: Friends at Mineral Town. Do you want to woo the tomboy-like girl in Mineral Town? To do so, you'll need to learn her likes and dislikes, as well as participate in The doctor said that she had something bad to eat. Mornings, Nights,Holidays or Special events after marriage: Your wife.
I need to test his responses to different items in the Girl version of the game. In Harvest Moon Boy and Girl, when you play a boy, the Blue Heart Event is different for each of the girls but most of them involve a series of actions. A couple require more than one day to complete.
For example, in Elli's Blue Heart Event, she will bring a sandwich to your farm at noon. She will do this on three consecutive days. If you wish to complete the event and earn a boost in her affections, you must be at your farm at noon on each of those days. Mary's Blue Heart Event, on the other hand, can be completed in a single day, provided you visit the Library after she brings the book to your farm. Furthermore, the girl does not have to be AT Blue Heart level in order to experience the event.
She must be very close to Blue Heart level, however. Performing the proper sequence of actions or giving the correct response usually will bring her to Blue Heart level, which is why I am referring to the 3rd Heart Event as the Blue Heart Event.
With respect to the Blue Heart Events for the other four eligible girls, there are other special requirements, apart from Heart Level that must be met before you can trigger the event. In Ann's case, you must have at least three egg- laying adult chickens. Popuri's Blue Heart Event requires that you have at least one empty slot in your Henhouse, allowing you to incubate an egg.
Once you have experienced this Event, all you need to do is raise the girl to deepest red heart level in order to be able to propose to her successfully.
There is no 'Proposal Event' per se. Equip the Blue Feather as a Tool and flourish it. The girl will respond. Sometimes her response will not be unequivocally positive but if she takes the Blue Feather, you will know that you have succeeded.
For example, when you propose to Ann successfully, her response will be: Are you sure you want a girl like me? You won't regret it later? After this, you will find yourself at home with your new wife who will suggest a choice of nicknames.
Thus begins wedded bliss In the Boy version of the game, the Blue Feather will become available at the Supermarket when any eligible girl reaches Orange Heart level and you will use the Blue Feather to make a marriage proposal to the girl of your choice.
In the Girl version of the game, it is the bachelor who will use the Blue Feather to propose to you in a special event that will occur at your farm. If you accept his proposal, the wedding will occur a week later and the game will end.
Heart Events advance your courtship of the eligible girl or bachelor. Rival Heart Events advance the courtship of your rival and the eligible girl or bachelor. There are events that are neither Heart Events nor Rival Heart Events but which may feature an eligible girl or bachelor. It definitely is possible to experience all three Heart Events and propose successful to any of the eligible girls apart from Karen before the end of the first year in the boy version of this game.
The only reason you cannot do so with respect to Karen is that the first opportunity to experience her 3rd Heart Event is at the beginning of the second Spring as it is connected to a Spring flower, the Moondrop. As far as the Rival marriages are concerned, however, they cannot occur in the first year as you cannot trigger the 3rd and 4th rival heart events until the 2nd year. You then must trigger a final event in order to make it possible for the rival to marry the eligible girl. It will occur at your house when the bachelor is at full red heart level, provided that you have experienced all other Heart Events.
In the Girl version, Heart Events are a little more difficult to define, as there are a number of events that have been 'borrowed' from the Boy version. Many of the events that involve Cliff are not really Heart Events but are special events that advance his progress in his own life.
The event in Rose Square where you retrieve the photograph of his family is an event that is shared by all the games I have listed. In the Boy version, there is an Event with Rick that requires an expanded henhouse with less than a total of 5 chickens. This Event is incorporated into the Girl version of the game. Accepting the guardianship of his 5 chickens will increase his heart level but it is NOT a true Heart Event. Heart Events must be experienced at specific heart levels or higher and must be experienced in order.
Furthermore, Rick's actual heart events appear to be connected with the wild dog threat in this game. There are events at Blue Heart level that will increase the Bachelor's affection. The actual Heart music plays, however, invariably during the course of the Green Heart Event. All events will be added to this guide. Please note that rival heart events are almost identical in the Boy and Girl versions of the game.
If any Rival Heart Event is not included in the Bachelor section, look in the Eligible Girl section and you will find it. Ultimately, all will be included both in the Eligible Girl section and the Bachelor sections.
Giving the individual an item he or she loves, however, will increase heart levels or friendship faster. Experiencing an Event is another means by which you can increase affection and friendship levels. Any Heart Event that has been concluded in the best possible way will give the greatest boost to the heart level of an eligible girl or bachelor.
Visit all the local shops and homes if you can. Even if you do not have an item to give, make the effort. You will hear the same dialogue again and again but it is worth the effort. Dialogue changes according to Affection and Friendship levels, but only in certain locations.
In other words, if you speak to Ann at the Goddess Spring, her responses never will change. Speaking to her downstairs in the Inn is the place where dialogue will change according to heart level.
For Elli, it is when she is behind the desk at the Clinic. For Karen, it is when she walks up and down in the aisle of the Supermarket that her conversation will reflect heart level. With respect to Mary, it is when she is at the Library and for Popuri, when she is inside the Poultry Farm.
Where ordinary villagers are concerned, dialogue not only is the key to friendship level but is a way to obtain useful or fascinating bits of information. There are times when a specific item given to an individual will advance your own success.
If you give your first harvest of Honey from your Tree to Louis, he will declare it to be the product of rare and superior bees, raising its shipping value from 50G to 60G. Allowing Anna to pick as many flowers as she likes will result in the gift of a Red Power Berry. Delivering the 3 eggs to the Inn each day when Ann requests them in the first part of her Blue Heart Event will result in an increased profit of G daily for an entire week.
This is one of the reasons why I believe that players should experience as many events as possible, raising the Heart Levels of ALL eligible girls or bachelors before finally proposing to one of them. If you do not increase Ann's heart level, you never will have the option to sell three eggs daily for a week for G instead of shipping them for G. In your first year, that sort of profit can be very useful. Even the gift of a single egg in Popuri's Blue Heart Event will give you a Chicken that either can be sold or kept to produce more eggs.
It is only if you receive Thanksgiving gifts that you will obtain Chocolate or Chocolate Cake. Thanksgiving gifts depend upon Heart Levels.
It therefore is to your advantage to raise Heart Levels to some extent with as many potential spouses as possible in order to obtain items that otherwise are unavailable to you. Once you marry, you will receive a Thanksgiving gift only from your spouse, so do not be too quick to marry in this game. Romantic Festivals New Year's Dance Your first opportunity to experience this Festival will occur on New Year's Day in your second year as actual gameplay begins on 2 Spring in the first year.
Karen will appear at your farm after noon to teach you how to dance in the Boy version of the game. The Festival begins at 6. At green heart level at the Festival, I had the option to ask every eligible girl to dance when I arrived at Rose Square. Your opportunity to escort a girl to the Festival will occur on the previous day, on 7 Spring. When you speak to any eligible girl, she will mention that 'Tomorrow is the Spring Goddess Festival'.
If the girl's heart level is not high enough and you ask to escort her, she then will tell you: I've already promised some one else. Tomorrow is the Goddess Festival. Beetween the clinic and my dance practicing, I'm really busy. Ask to accompany Don't ask Mary: Toomorrow is the Spring Goddess Festival. I'm really looking forward to it. Tomorrow is the Spring Goddess Featival. Ask to escort Don't ask Karen: Tomorrow is the Spring Goddess Festival. It'll be so much fun Nothing's better than dancing!
Ask to accompany Don't ask If the girl is not at Blue level or above, she ultimately will refuse the invitation. In the first year: I already promised to go with some one else. I've already promised someone else.
By the second Spring, you should be able to proposition any eligible girl successfully unless you have married some one. Spring Thanksgiving The Spring Thanksgiving is the opportunity for a boy to give Cookies to the girl or girls he likes.
In the boy game, this is your responsibility but one that you will not be able to meet until the second Spring, as you will not have a kitchen at the start of the game. Giving the traditional Thanksgiving gift to a girl will raise her affection for you. You can give Cookies to all five girls if you like. In the girl version of the game, you will not receive visits from any bachelor even at Blue Heart level in your first Spring.
By the second Spring, however, you should be able to receive Cookies from all eligible bachelors. To attend, go to the Beach between 6. This is a festival for the young, so you will find all eligible girls and bachelors there. If you have a high heart level with any girl or bachelor, you will have the option to join that individual at the end of the pier to watch the fireworks.
You will be sent to bed immediately afterwards with no opportunity to save your game. Harvest Moon Boy Eligible Girls You will obtain an increase in heart level for any girl with a gift of jewelry and a greater increase from a gift of Perfume. As in most Harvest Moon games, during the course of any Heart Event, you may be offered a choice of options in terms of action or verbal response. Choosing the 'right' response will raise the girl's heart level.
Choosing the 'wrong' response will lower it. If there is a third option, it often will have no effect on heart level at all. Is that for me? Ann is the daughter of Doug, the owner and manager of the Inn in Mineral Town. Ann prides herself on her tomboy character or rather lack of 'girlish' tendencies. She does not like to dress in a frock! Ann is very responsible for her age and has taken upon herself many of the housekeeping duties at the Inn.
She takes pride in her cooking and housekeeping skills. Your rival for Ann's affections is Cliff, although he is too shy to make much of an effort to court her. Most of the courtship is instigated by Ann herself! At the Inn from 6. At the Goddess Spring from 7. On the second floor of the Inn from Downstairs at the Inn from 1.
Downstairs at the Inn from 7. Spa-Boiled Egg Cooked Items: Oh Frey, you came too. The mountain feels so good in the morning! What are you doing! It is when she is working downstairs in the Inn that Ann's conversation will change according to heart level. Hi there, how's the farm doing? Everything's delicious when you live near farm country. I love to eat! On her birthday for Toyflower: No matter how old you get, it's still fun to get birthday presents. Elli is a rather serious girl who, deprived of her parents at any early age, came to Mineral Town with her brother Stu to live with her grandmother Ellen.
Ellen has 'bad legs' and essentially is confined to a chair, so Elli has become both caretaker of her aging grandmother and the 'mother' for her younger brother. As if this were not sufficient responsibility for a young girl, she has become the Doctor's assistant at the Clinic, with ambition to become a proper Nurse. She now appears to live primarily at the Clinic.
Elli is devoted to her grandmother and passionately wishes to find a cure for her condition. The Doctor is your rival for Elli's heart. Inside the Clinic from 6. At Ellen's house from 9.

In the Supermarket from 1. At Ellen's house from 4. Inside the Clinic from 7. For Toyflower or Moondrop: Speak to Elli when she is behind the counter at the Clinic in order to obtain the dialogue that changes with heart level.
There seems to be a flu going around. Take care of yourself. You know my grandmother, right? I want to cure the problem with her legs, so I'm studying here. You seem to be getting used to farm life. Why did you move to this village, Frey? I haven't heard the reason. At orange heart level: Is something the matter? Although Jeff is the owner of the Supermarket, his personality is such that he requires the support of strong women to keep his business afloat. Both his wife and his daughter Karen are very strong women who are not afraid to confront any customer who tries to pay on credit.
Karen is very protective of her father and spends much of the day in the Supermarket walking back and forth. You will find her outside on the bench with Rick in the early morning until the Supermarket opens at 9. Rick is Karen's best friend from childhood and is your rival for her affections.
Karen loves Wine and is to be found on Sunday night at the Bar at the Inn. She loves poetry and romance, but hates sweets. Other nights of the week, you can find her walking along the shore. The Supermarket is shut on Tuesdays and Sundays. On rainy days, you can find Karen at Gotz' house. On Tuesday, she likes to visit the Goddess Spring.

But my mother does most of the yelling Then they suddenly make up. But can I really keep it? Mary's father is a distinguished botanist and writer and the family moved to Mineral Town to allow him to continue his research. Mary's mother is Anna, a very talented cook. Mary herself has secret aspirations to become a novelist, and rather appropriately, she is the local Librarian.
Mary therefore will be found most often at the Library. In her house from 6. Mary is in her house until 1. In the afternoon, she visits the Supermarket with her mother Anna. Most Favourite Items For pink cat: Items she likes Speak to Mary when she is in the Library for the dialogue that changes with heart level. At Yellow heart level; Oh It seems it's always the same people who visit the library. I wish everybody from the village came to read books.
I want to keep working in the library even after I get married That's a big help! In the afternoon after marriage: Working makes you hungry, doesn't it heart At night after 6. I like the night, so I like to stay up real late. But then I find myself nodding off in the Library. I want us to stay up late together, Darling. But you work so hard every day heart. After her marriage, the Library will be open only on Sundays, from 10 a.
Their father left Mineral Town a number of years ago to search for a special plant that would cure Lillia's medical condition. Lillia is in a very fragile state of health and thus, the responsibility for much of the business and family decisions rest upon Rick.
He tends to be a little over-protective of his sister and particularly dislikes Kai, your rival for Popuri's affections. Popuri can be a little childish, but she is sincere and actually longs to assume more responsibility with respect to the business.
In HM DS, she actually will be the manager of the Poultry Farm but in this game, she merely helps her mother deal with customers. Daily Schedule on sunny days apart from Sunday: Inside the Poultry Farm from 6. Inside Chicken Li'l's again from Inside the Poultry Farm building all day On sunny Sundays: Inside the Poultry Farm building from 6.

At our Poultry Farm, Mom tends the store and my brother takes care of the chickens. Dad must trust my brother a lot because he didn't teach me anything. Actually, she always will say this, whatever her heart level.
The location at which her dialogue changes according to heart level is when she is inside the Poultry Farm. You're nice, not like my brother.
My brother can't separate from me, I'll tell you the story some day. At Green Heart; What was it like where you used to live? I want to go places.
For Spa Egg on his birthday; What? Actually, today's my birthday. Cliff is an extremely, almost pathologically shy boy with a secret tragedy in his past. He has come to Mineral Town in an effort to flee from his sorrow, the source of which is an event or series of events involving his own family.
Cliff has very few resources and is in need of a job. He is staying at the Inn in a guest room on the second floor but without a source of regular income, will be forced to leave Mineral Town. He spends his mornings in the Church praying, whether for redemption or a job opportunity or for both.
Ann is your rival for Cliff's heart. Although he tends to spurn the advances of any girl, it is his shy nature rather than any intrinsic dislike that motivates these rejections. Before he is offered the job at Aja's Winery, Cliff will be found in the mornings at the Church praying. You can find him on the 2nd floor of the Inn in one of the guest bedrooms in the afternoon. Once he has accepted the Winery job, you will find him during business hours at the Aja Winery. Bamboo Shoot, Blue Grass, Spa Egg The Doctor is as serious as he is handsome and his conversation tends to focus on matters of health at all times.
His mentor is Dr. Hardy in Forget-Me-Not Valley. The Doctor both lives and works at the Clinic and his associate and nurse, as well as your rival for his affections, is Elli. You will find the Doctor inside the Clinic all day every day except Wednesday. On Wednesday, you will find him in the Clinic from 6. I like anything nutritious. Copper, Silver are easiest, Branch, Egg, Bread Grey is a sensitive rather quiet boy who originally lived in a city but by some family decision or force of circumstance was apprenticed to his grandfather, the Blacksmith in Mineral Town.
Mary, the local librarian, is your rival for Grey and there are a number of 'Rival Heart' Events in the game that reveal their growing attachment to one another. Grey has a secret ambition to make beautiful jewelry but he becomes resigned to his duty, which is to follow in his grandfather's footsteps as a Blacksmith.
Grey actually lives in one of the guest rooms on the 2nd floor of the Inn rather than sharing a room with his grandfather at the Smithy. You will find him in his room only early in the morning. He then walks to the Smithy where he works until 1. You will find him in his guest room again at night. On Thursday, the Smithy is shut. Flour, Bread, Oil Kai is a very easy-going boy who loves the Sun and refuses to spend any time in a cold climate.
His favourite season, not surprisingly, is Summer and it is during Summer only that he visits Mineral Town. His father evidently is a very successful businessman who owns a chain of restaurants, but Kai is content to have a small shack on the beach where he serves casual food during his annual Summer sojourn in Mineral Town.
Popuri is your rival for Kai's affections. Rick is extremely hostile towards Kai because of his interest in his sister, but Grey and Kai ultimately become rather close friends. You only will find Kai in Mineral Town in the summer, with the exception of a rather amusing hasty visit to the Church in the Spring of your first year. The Church event actually constitutes his First Heart Event and if you choose the right option, his heart will be at Blue level upon his arrival in Mineral Town.
In Summer, in the early morning and at night, you will find Kai in a guest room on the second floor of the Inn. During the day, he will be found in his Shack on the beach.
Rick is Lillia's son and Popuri's brother. All three work at Chicken Li'l's Poultry Farm. Lillia's husband left Mineral Town a few years ago to search for a special cure for her illness and has not returned.
As Lillia's health is fragile, the primary responsibility for the business fell upon Rick's young shoulders. As the only man in the house, he feels that he must serve as the protector and guardian of the women as well. He tends to be overly protective of his sister Popuri, but his attitude is founded upon love. You will find Rick early in the morning outside Chicken Li'l's from 6. He then goes to the Supermarket, where he meets Karen.
The two will be on the bench to the right of the Supermarket until it opens at 9. He will be found inside Chicken Li'l's from He then goes into the yard where he will remain until 4. On Tuesday morning, when the weather is fine, you will find Rick at Rose Square at 9. This is how I spend nice days. As he will tell you if you speak to him there: You run a farm, so Saibara's also taking care of your tools, right?
Choosing the 'right' response will raise the bachelor's heart level. Ann's Heart and Rival Heart Events: Ann's 1st Heart Event: On Tuesday, 3 Spring, at 6. I entered the Inn to experience Ann's 1st Heart Event: Please take your time. Say, your'e the guy from the Asgard farm, right? I rush over to the counter. What do you think of her? Seems cheerful She's cute She's cute Doug: Oh, well that's good.
As you can see, she's a bit of a tomboy for her age Her mother was a little quieter But I'm glad you said what you said. An walks over to us. What are you talking about? Nice to meet you. Ann's 2nd Heart Event: It is Friday, 12 Spring.
The signature jazzy tune belonging to Ann plays in the background. Ann comes out of the Inn. I race down the road to meet her. Oh, you heard that, huh? Dad told me I should hurry up and marry.
But I can't even think about that yet. Ann's 3rd or Blue Heart Event: This event can last for a total of seven days. The 3rd Heart Events for the eligible girls tend to be in more than one episode. The event will begin when you exit your house in the morning. You must have Ann close to Blue Heart Level and you must have at least three egg-laying adult chickens in your Henhouse to initiate the event. On the 6th of Summer in my first year, I exited my house at 6. Are you there, Frey? I had to walk up to her to speak to her again.
I came to talk about business. Starting from tomorrow, could you deliver 3 fresh eggs daily to the Inn for our cooking needs?
It will just be for a while. Yes, I'll deliver them. Sorry, no can do. Of course we'll pay you for the service. They involve a choice on your part. The wrong answer will cause your friend's love points to drop by a lot. The right answer will cause the love points to raise. If you raise someone's Heart Level too fast, it's possible that you can wind up skipping a Heart Event. If the Heart Level becomes too high, it will prevent you from viewing a lower event. You will have to work to lower her Heart Level back down.
These particular HM games don't actually end, so there is no real rush to get married immediately. However, it's important to know that you have rivals in love.
The rival couples are: You trigger them by entering a certain area at a certain time. These cinemas don't involve any other interaction on your part. Make sure that you keep track of which events you've triggered. There is no visible way to tell which heart level your rival's love is at. These events are also triggered at four specific levels, but they are slightly different than the ones for your Heart Events.
The fate of your rivals' relationships rests in your hands. They will not marry unless you trigger their Rival Heart events. You will not be able to trigger a rival's heart event if the subject likes you better than your rival.
You won't be able to trigger it if she has a Yellow or higher heart for you. You would have to lower her heart back down to Green or below. Thankfully, this stipulation does not go both ways. You can safely view the Rival Heart events before triggering your own, even if the object of your affections has a Black Heart for you. Once you trigger a rival's Orange Heart event, the two will marry in seven days.
If the wedding will fall on a holiday, it will instead occur on the next regular day following that holiday. Only trigger that event if you want them to get married. This story is NOT official, nor is it mine. It is a wonderful, original tale woven by Freyashawk see Section XI. She has graciously allowed me to use this story in my guide. But I must reiterate that, no matter how much I wish it was, this story is neither mine nor canon.
He was very much in love with the daughter of the chief of his tribe, but was too shy to say anything to her. Instead, he would leave a white flower at her door each morning and then walk past her house later to see if his gift had been accepted.
The White Flower was a rare and beautiful blossom that could be found only at the top of the highest mountain. Each evening, Kuko would climb the mountain to search for the elusive flower and he would not return to his village without it.
To him, it represented the rare emotion that had blossomed in his own heart. Every day, his heart rose when he saw that the flower no longer lay on the doorstep. He imagined his beloved would understand that her own beauty was reflected in the exquisite loveliness of the White Flower.
Then one day, a delegation of strangers came to the village. They brought an offering of marriage from the son of a neighbouring chieftain. Donkeys laden with gold, chests filled with precious gems and baskets filled with grains, vegetables and fruit accompanied the proposal of marriage.
His heart sank when he saw the ostentatious procession and heard the admiring exclamations of the villagers. All he had to offer was the simple White Flower.
In fact, as the delegation entered the home of the village chieftain, their heavy boots trampled Kuko's offering into the dust. Kuko could not imagine that the girl would prefer him to the son of a wealthy chief. He was a poor shepherd boy who owned only a couple of sheep and two chickens who never had laid a single golden egg.
In despair that evening, he went to the Spring of the Goddess to think. It was a favourite spot of his, a place he often visited when life appeared darkest. According to legend, the Harvest Goddess lived in the lake and granted the wishes of deserving individuals who sought her aid. Kuko imagined the Goddess to be as compassionate as she would be beautiful, and he poured his heart out to her in the twilight, speaking of his dreams and hopes, his disappointments and his struggles.
Ordinarily rather inarticulate and shy, Kuko found he was able to speak freely to the Goddess he could not see but whom he sensed to be ever-present in the sparkling waters of the Spring. That evening, when he finally fell silent, he was surprised by the appearance of an exquisite blue bird flying across the sky. The bird circled overhead three times, then dropped a feather into his lap.
The feather was long and iridescent, and Kuko never had beheld anything quite as beautiful. Kuko was startled, but even more astonished when the bird actually spoke to him. Give this Blue Feather to the girl you love and if her heart beats true for you, she will be yours. He then returned to the village, feather in hand, and laid it upon the doorstep of his beloved. He could not sleep, however, and was at her door at dawn to see if the feather remained where he had left it.
Much to his joy, the feather was gone! As he stood there, the chief of the village, his daughter and the entire delegation of strangers came out of the house, and the village crier began to ring the bell, calling the villager to a meeting. All the villagers congregated in the Square, pressing forward to hear the news. Poor Kuko was afraid suddenly that it would be an announcement that the Chief's daughter had agreed to accept the offer of marriage from the neighbouring Chief's son.
Instead, he beheld his lady love stepping forward with the Blue Feather braided into her golden hair. In a clear voice, she declared: The next three days passed far too slowly, therefore, for poor Kuko, who knew the answer himself, but did not know if his rival would be able to stand forth to give the correct answer as well.
After three days had passed, the bells rang. The delegation returned and this time, the neighbouring Chief's son was with them. Much to Kuko's consternation, he was a handsome lad, but with arrogance stamped in his features. His bearing moreover denoted one accustomed to having his own way in everything.
Kuko's rival stepped forward then, as if he and he alone had the right to speak first. He declared loudly, 'Here is my answer to your question: I have sent men to every corner of our land, and no one has seen a bird with feathers like this. I therefore declare with confidence that the bird is foreign to these parts, and must be from a land very faraway.
We have our answer here. It does not tell me where to find the bird. Much to his surprise, when he spoke, he did not stutter as usual. His voice was firm and melodious as he said, 'I have seen the bird you seek. This bird will not be found anywhere in our land or in any other, for she makes her nest in the very lap of the Goddess.
She is the Namimoto bird, favoured by the Harvest Goddess above all others. I wish to dwell in your heart forever. I am your humble servant, sir, but my heart has the highest of aspirations, to belong to your daughter forever.
Every one was captivated by the boy's words and even the Chief could not maintain his stern disapproval, although the thought of losing all the advantages that an alliance with the neighbouring Chief would have provided was disappointing. Even so, he loved his daughter and her happiness was more important than riches.
The Chief's daughter looked at the son of the neighbouring Chief, then at Kuko. I always hoped you would speak to me one day of your love. From this day forward, let the Blue Feather be a sign of eternal love for every man and woman who wishes to marry. Traditionally in Mineral Town, the Blue Feather is given to your love as a marriage proposal.
The Blue Feather is considered a 'tool' rather than an 'item', and will be stored in the 'Tools' section of your rucksack or in your Tool box. But just because you have the Blue Feather doesn't mean your proposal will be accepted. Your love can, and will, turn you down if you haven't met all the marriage requirements. In order to marry, you must first: After you get married, the game credits roll and become one of your archived letters.
This is NOT the end of the game! It's annoying to sit through, but when the credits are finished, the game will continue normally. After the wedding, your spouse will move into your home and ask if they can call you by a nickname.
This includes Kai, who will move to Mineral Town and be available during all seasons. The Gourmet, Harvest Goddess, and Kappa are exceptions. They will not move in with you. You will also be given the option to allow your love to continue working or become a stay-at-home spouse.
They don't actually do anything or help on the farm if they stay home. They will constantly just pace alongside the dinner table. This option is also not available for certain characters. Elli, Mary, and Won will not quit their jobs after marriage. Keep in mind that even though their hearts are invisible, they still have the same amount of affection for you.
Harvest Moon Boy & Girl - Courtship and Marriage FAQ
If you plan to marry them off, you will need to lower their heart levels back down if they are too high to trigger the rival events.
Your spouse will also appear in your inventory alongside your dog and your horse. Keeping your spouse's level consistently at Red Heart will keep them happy and their love for you will grow. You will be able to see this on your inventory screen. Your spouse has a maximum of ten hearts. There is no divorce in this game, so you can't change spouses ever. Talk to your love and give them a nice gift everyday to prevent this.
If you can maintain them at ten hearts, you will soon find yourself expecting a baby. Pregnancy lasts about two seasons. If you are playing FoMT, your wife will have a baby boy. If you are playing MoFo, you will give birth to a baby girl. Your new baby will also appear in your inventory, which means that the baby, as well, has a heart level. Your baby will also only grow to toddler stage. You will only have one child. Your spouse will usually bake a cake on a special occasion.
And if you stay married for 50 years, your spouse will buy you a Mountain Cottage for your anniversary! The Other Couples As stated previously, once you trigger a rival's Orange Heart event, the two will marry in seven days. If you're good friends with your rival, you will be invited to the wedding. First thing in the morning, on the day of the wedding, your rival will be waiting outside your door to invite you. You automatically accept, view a cinema of the wedding, and wake up the next morning.
If you aren't invited to the wedding, you can still view it by going in the church on the wedding day anytime between 6AM and 10PM. Carter will ask you if you want to join in the festivities. If you accept, you will view a cinema of the wedding and wake up the next morning. If you decline, you will be able to talk to everyone in the church.
Your rival will even give you a poor excuse for not inviting you. After their wedding, the other couple may move in with each other, or change their schedules slightly. Also, the couple will never have a child. You canNOT get married to a character of the same gender.
However, in MoFo, you can trigger each girl's Black Heart event, which is considered a bonus "friendship" event. I only have the points values for the girls' heart events thanks to Samurai Goroh and The King Of This Gameso if anyone has the values for the boys' events, please e-mail me!
