View Full Version : Selecting a Spouse

09-17-2004, 01:03 AM
I'm very curious how the whole courtship, love, and marriage thing works in Fable. I can see that flirting, pumping your arm in manly fashion, and giving gifts can increase a target's love for you (indicated by the size of the pink heart floating over their heads --- nice touch).

I'm assuming/guessing that once the target gets a big enough heart (man or woman), you can give him/her a wedding ring and that leads to a marriage. I haven't tried it yet.

This makes me curious: How choosy need one by in picking a spouse? Does it make a difference in the game? Are their political alliances to be cemented? Are some women more fertile than others?

Oh, and a comment: the emphasis on sophomoric bodily functions is a little annoying. I don't know about you folks, but I graduated from fourth grade in 1979!

I have about 8 girls in Bowerstone South in love with me right now including the owner of the BArber shop .. now what happens if I marry her ... Do I get her shop?

I am also trying to find some women of prominence to marry ... I have one wife but I need more

Derty if you marry her she will move into the house you own and there will be no barber.

You marry the barber there'll be no barber... you know this for a fact or are you just GUESSING?

I'm pretty sure a new barber will take over.

As for the other questions, I don't believe you will own the shop. However, I'm currently married to a bar maid, and I collected a 2000 dollar dowry when I married.

that's right... you get a dowry based on the person you marry....
