Have we figured out what is going on? I asked around in Deaderpools Discord and some people say EA made it so spouses will show up on purpose. But I don't think this is something EA would do.

Having the same issue - my sim is a doctor and the club members from his club (not active family) will just pop in there and start using the treadmill and computer and not listed as patients.  They also do this at the film studio for my actor sim - have not tested the detective or scientist yet.

I haven't seen this issue (yet) in my own gameplay, but I've seen it in TheSimSupply's latest Rags2Riches LP.

Yeah, I saw it there, then noticed it in mine. It's super frustrating!

I have had this happen in my game as well, although I have not tested it without mods yet. The significant other used to work at the studio lot as a camera guy while my sim is an actress. He often pops up with the "Are you sure you want to leave work now?" box if he's at his new job so I'm able to prevent him from showing up. Once he's there, he can't be sent home at all until the actress gets off work.

 

One thing I have noticed however is that this also occurs on the home lot as well. If he leaves for work, occasionally I will get the same pop-up bubble with the "Are you sure you want (sim) to leave work now?" notification despite having no reason to be coming home at all and not having selected for him to come back. It's happened at least twice in my game and I think it's related to the original problem of significant others showing up to movie sets.

My actor Sim has had his friend, Moira Fyres, show up at the studio when he once chose to stay after hours.
