Stardew Valley update aims to improve the quality of marriage

Stardew Valley Town

Stardew Valley has taken steps toward improving marriage in the game with the recent launch of the 1.06 update, which aims to ensure that spouses “retain a lot more of their unique 'personality'” after they get hitched. Each spouse now has his or her own unique dialogue, and will leave the house at least once a week to go to town, or maybe to just take a walk.

The full list of changes, as posted on Steam:

  • Added unique dialogues for all spouses.
  • Spouses now leave the house on Mondays.
  • Value of most animal products increased.
  • Holly is now poisonous.
  • Missing events problem shouldn't happen anymore.
  • Minor bug/grammar/graphics fixes.

The changes will only impact items created after the patch is installed, so anything made prior to the match will retain its old price and/or edibility. “There will be more marriage improvements to come,” developer Eric Barone, he of the most epic "Show Us Your Rig" ever, wrote. “Hope you're having a nice weekend.”

You too, Eric—thanks for the patch. And since we're talking about ways to make Stardew Valley even better, be sure not to miss our list of the best Stardew Valley mods, which includes pet replacements, anime portraits, and the annoying dog from Undertale, right here.
