It does involve cheating.


On PC, you can open the cheats console with control-shift-c and type testingcheats on and enter. You should get an acknowledgement.


If you have four free household slots you can continue. If not, move one of the partners out.


In the cheats console, type cas.fulleditmode and enter. You should get an acknowledgment. 

Edit the household in create-a-sim (plan outfits). If you have Growing Together, do not edit traits! Probably the easiest thing would be to use the play with genetics option to create parents. You can move them out after you create them; they just need to exist.


If you’re able and willing to use mods, people are using MC Command Center and UI Cheats to help fix this. Sacrificial has a mod called Life Manager that might help, as it creates a full family tree for your Sim. Or you can just create parents in CAS.

My game is plagued with this. I've tried doing it Vanilla and fixing with just cheats, and nothing works. Partners become siblings, parents are no longer set as parents so they're free to just romance them with this too.

Partners become Siblings after leaving CAS

★★★★★ Newbie

No matter what I do, whenever I enter and leave CAS it turns my sims from married into married siblings. Obviously this is not ideal, I would like them to just be married. I tried turning off cas.fulledit but it still happens. Is there any way to fix this issue without going through MCCC and deleting one partner's relationships and manually adding them back in?
