My game is fully updated and I've tried rebooting the game as well. I have a household of 2 female sims. Sim A is a stylist level 7, Sim B is tech guru level 6. Upon trying to get them married, Sim A had a bug that wouldnt allow her to propose or marry Sim B. I supposed maybe because Sim A had many boyfriends and girlfriends before choosing who she wanted to settle with. I got past that by having Sim B complete those actions (proposal and marriage) instead. 

 

Sim A had a wild night out and got pregnant by an entirely separate Male sim that does not live in the home and is now in her 3rd trimester. The notification that I have family leave appeared for both sims but neither sim A or B in my household has the option to utilize it. Help! Sim A may be promiscuous, but she promises to use the family leave to care for the baby.

HI @okayohkaymar 

 

this is a known bug. It was fixed for PC but still open for console. It will be fixed eventually on console too.

 

I merged your post with current thread on the issue.

Thank you! I tried a quick search and saw posts saying it was fixed. I was unaware it was only PC it was fixed for.

What do you expect to see? For them to take their parental leave

I’ve been having this issue for about a week or two now. I’ve taken my mothers in labour to the hospital. While standing in queue, they’re sent to work! One of my mothers is a doctor, so she was expected to work while in full labour. It took over 12 sim hours before she was admitted into hospital to have her baby. 

 

I have another doctor who is late in her third trimester, and despite being told that she and the father have parental leave- they still go to work. The father is a cop. I’m not sure if their jobs have any relevancy to this- I’ve had another mother in the politics career do this as well. 

 

Edit; My mother to be was standing around in the hospital just then for 24 hours before a doctor finally saw her. Up until then, there was no doctor and the assistant eventually went home. “Check I’m at front desk” didn’t work, neither did “reset object” on mother in labour, assistant, or even the computer. 

 

I was promoted to go to the hospital three times during all that.
