[NEEDS INPUT] Sims can't become soulmates

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Español
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.51.77.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? My two married sims have a 100% relationship and friendship status, but they don't change from being lovers, they won't become soulmates. The man from this marriage had already had a soulmate relationship with another sim, but this sim has already died, before she passed away they stopped being soulmates because my sim asked her to keep the friendship.
What happens when the bug occurs? The married sims don´t become soulmates.
What do you expect to see? The married sims should become soulmates.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I'll try to narrate what I've done with my sims. First I created the female sim named Carolina, she lived alone for a while. Then I created the male sim named Rafael, he was placed on a home next to Carolina´s. They met when Rafael moved in, they started going out and then they moved in together. I tried to accomplish the "Serial Romantic" Love aspiration for each sim. Rafael achieved the soulmate relationship with another sim, but after completing all the milestones he asked that soulmate to keep things like friends, so they stopped being soulmates. Carolina also completed the Serial Romantic aspiration but never achieved soulmate with anyone. Now they are both married but have never achieved the soulmate status.

@catitot Guess I missed this.

Do you still have issues with this ? There haven't been any other reports as I can see ?

Hello!

 

it is 2019 and this is still an issue. I am wondering if the bug comes from when the two sims in question already have high relationships and THEN become married. It has been several sim days and they still are not soulmates. Just a thought!

I haven't experienced this. My sims have no troubles becoming soulmates and they aren't even married. And they have multiple soulmates at the same time.

 

If you're having issues, try resetting their relationship, like using "ask to just be friends" to remove the romance, and then build it back up again to see if it triggers the relationship status changing again. With married sims, you might not be able to use that option though.

 

You can try the friendship and romance modify cheats:

modifyrelationship John Doe Jane Doe -50 LTR_Friendship_Main

modifyrelationship John Doe Jane Doe -50 Romance_Main

 

See if changing the level of their friendship or romance triggers the status updating from "lovers" to something else, such as sweethearts, lovebirds, just friends, etc.

 

You can then cheat it back up afterwards to see if it turns into soulmates or have them naturally interact to raise the friendship and romance.

  Well my Sims are not married, but in my game the relationship has become stuck on lovers, even though both relationships bars are maxed should be soul mates. Has been that way for several Sim weeks. Sim has since completed serial romance aspiration and none of the others got stuck just the first. The first romance was taken very slowly, compared to the others.

I have 2 sims who are at maxed romance and friendship before they got married. Now that they're married, they won't advance to soulmates. I've tried playing other families to give them time for the relationship to update, lowered their relationship and built it back up, everything short of divorcing them and trying again. 

 

No custom content, don't even use cheat codes.

 

I would love to see this fixed soon.
