[OPEN] Marriage Whim Not Being Fulfilled

[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? I have all expansion packs, game packs, and stuff packs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a sim get the whim to get married to their significant other, then have the two sims get married and the whim will remain unfulfilled.
What happens when the bug occurs? The whim to get married doesn't fulfill after two sims get married.
What do you expect to see? I expect the whim to be fulfilled after two sims get married.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I'm not sure which patch caused this bug to start happening, but it's been happening for me now for over a year.  I usually play with mods, but I removed them all, deleted all the cache files, and made a new game in order to test a fresh save with no mods and the same bug will occur 100% of the time.

I've had this with the Get Engaged To [Sim] whim. Mostly with mods, but I played without a few times and it was still a thing.

I am also having this issue. I have tried both ways for scheduling the marriage event, through the social menu wheel and through adding an event in the calendar. Neither way fulfilled the "Get married" whim, and both sims had the whim. (I'd also like to note that only after about 2 in-game hours, the "Just Married!" moodlet disappeared, instead of lasting the full 2 days. The wedding event wasn't even completed before it disappeared. Because neither of the sims had the "Just Married" moodlet, neither of them was able to take the first slice of cake, which is an event goal.)

This has been an issue for a really long time (along with other whim-related issues), and its still going strong in my game. I just cancel the whims, because they never get fulfilled.
