[UNSURE] [ECO] New Pre-Mades Missing Relationships With Their Children

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? View the Tinker and Greenburg households in CAS or play them and check the relationship panel
What happens when the bug occurs? Knox Greenburg is missing a family connection with his mother (according to description) Mary Greenburg, Olive Tinker is missing a family connection to her mother Tina Tinker.
What do you expect to see? These sims properly have family connections to their mothers.
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? No

This issue occurs on all saves with Eco Lifestyle. Investigation shows that only the second mother listed in the household template file is applied as a mother, so I think the template handler is overwriting the relationship instead of simply adding the relationship for same-sex parents.

I believe this is not a bug. Knox is adopted, therefore he does not have that line of the family tree, but when you hover over it will say that she is his step-mother.
kinda the same with tinker, one gave birth(probably in CAS, but let's pretend) and the other one didn't have anything "biological" to do with the creation. Also here they do get the step-mother and child title on the tree and in the contact list, but no line on the tree

I disagree - the premade household template (an XML file from the game that defines the relationships between members of premade households) says that both should have the mother relationship in both cases. Instead, one is only an acquaintance "household member" with no relationship at all.

@Bra1nBlast3d is this template any different to another in-game married couple adopting?
Been ages since I have done it, mostly because then only one sim became the "real" parent.
