Multiple Spouses - Polygamy

Polygamy is not so much "prevented through hard-coding" but there is only ONE data field that points to the Sim's "partner". The end effect is about the same, there's just no place to reliably store any other partners the Sim may have, so consistency is an issue and there is opportunity for corruption.
  • An alternative way of getting multiple romantic partners is documented in Woohooer FAQ

Following are some wiki member suggestions for playing with multiple spouses/relationships:
Make sure to back up your game before trying any of the following suggestions.

You can trick the game into letting your Sim be married to more than one spouse at the same time. You install the DebugEnabler package in your Mods folder in the usual way (make sure you've got the right version for your game):
  • Suppose you have Sims A, B. C and D, and you want A, B and C to be married to D but not to each other (polygynous and polyandrous marriages are like that). (1) Select Sim A. (2) Click on Sim D while keeping A active. (3) Click on NRaas. (4) Click on DebugEnabler. (5) Click on Options:Sim. (6) A window with various options appears; select Relationship. (7) In the next window, select SetRelationship. (8) Select MakeSpouse. Now select Sim B. Repeat this process for Sims B and C, and you'll have A, B and C all appearing as D's husbands or wives.
You can obviously set up any combination of multiple marriages this way. You could have a swinger-style marriage, where A and B are married to both C and D (but A is not married to B, nor C to D), or a plural marriage in which everyone
is everyone's spouse, etc.
  • It helps to have the NoJealousy reward so your Sims get along, but it's not essential for this trick to work. For some reason, using the SetRelationship option in Nraas' Master Controller doesn't let you set up multiple marriages, but it works using DebugEnabler.
    Cautionary Notes:
    • DebugEnabler circumvent every blocks that has been placed within the game between a Sim and a Sim Relationship. Using this method CAN cause unusual effects onto Sims and their counterparts. When trying to use certain romantic interactions this method has a way of getting a relationship to go sour rapidly, if not used on EA's legal ages (YoungAdults and beyond). Even then its not a guarantee. You are warned!
    • Alternatively you can use Woohooer> Romance> Jealousy Level> none, to deactivate it completely. Though this is on a widespread bases.
  • A few small blemishes: You can't have multiple weddings, just multiple marriages. Also, the game sometimes gets confused about who a Sims' partner is (the category partner is distinct from that of spouse); sometimes, it lists another adult in the polygamous marriage instead of the spouse(s). Also, it only lists one partner. As well, the game can't help moralizing a little: a Sim who has multiple spouses gets the reputation of being a manipulator, even if they're officially married. But hey. At least your Sim's multiple spouses will all officially be listed as its wives or husbands, complete with little ring symbols under their pictures in the relationship panel.

See Also:Polygamy Mod

Allows multiple marriages (polygamy) without moving in, via the City Hall. Your Sim can have a quickie amicable divorce as well (Sims will remain friends). Ex and Ex Spouse Sims can be remarried in this way but only when their relationship is high enough after a break up – you will know when that’s possible when your Sim and his/her ex get back to that stage where they can Woohoo again. Sims will meet up at the City Hall or travel together. Relationships are correctly attributed after marriage/divorces, although the game always defers to last partner for some personal info

Jealousy - How To Change The Settings
