The regular drip-drip-drip of Stardew Valley 1.6 patch notes continued apace right now as creator Eric Barone revealed one more change coming to the game. This one is all about wedded bliss, which is able to now have a “honeymoon interval” that can maintain everybody glad about their nuptials—for some time, anyway.

Marriage in Stardew Valley brings sensible advantages, as spouses may help with chores like watering crops, feeding livestock, and cooking meals. However issues can go south in case you let the spark of romance develop chilly: Because the unofficial Stardew Valley wiki places it, “Spouses can grow to be sad if not handled properly, which is able to end in undesirable actions, reminiscent of laying in mattress all day and saying irritating issues.”

Truthful is much: When you’re being a jerk then possibly you deserve some crappy angle and soiled dishes in return. Ideally, although, that should not be occurring throughout the first week of marriage, and thus this repair:

Spouses now have a seven-day ‘honeymoon’ interval after marriage which prevents them from laying in mattress all day resulting from being upset.

I really feel compelled to level out that nobody ought to take this as a license to be a dinkus to their new partner instantly after the ceremony concludes: Respect, belief, and consideration are very important to any enduring partnership, even pixelated ones. 

I feel the true aim right here is just to keep away from a selected gameplay oddity: You married me two days in the past and also you’re already having second ideas? Seven days, properly, that is nonetheless not nice however I suppose it is somewhat extra cheap so far as a window of time required to actually sit again and contemplate the alternatives you’ve got remodeled the course of your life that introduced you to that specific second in it.

The Stardew Valley 1.6 update is ready to go dwell on March 19, and forward of that Barone is tweeting out one single patch be aware from the update per day. Frankly, we’re somewhat involved for him.
