Is your game filling with empty households? We made a fix to clear the empty Households when loading the game.
Fixed in Patch 1.82.99/1.50
The Patch notes suggest that the game now deletes the empty households on loading the game. If this also means they shouldn't get created anymore in saves is unclear.
If you still experience issues with them being created or not properly deleted, create a new thread.
This is important to get a fresh me too count to see how many are still affected.
