Step Children are the children of a lover that they have before (or sometimes while) dating the main character. While children of a lover are stated in their profile, they do not become step-children until marriage. If divorcing a spouse, the step-children will no longer be in your Relationships and will no longer be step-children. If a spouse dies, they will still be the main character's step-children. When a character has step-children, their order on the children list will be based on when they became step-children, regardless of whether they are older or younger than any biological children. If your character dies or you want to switch lives, your stepchildren can be a viable option just like biological children.
Make Love - Your character will make love with their partner. Otherwise, they may refuse. Sometimes, the female partner will get pregnant. This can be prevented with Birth Control. In Android, this option was previously called called Baby and its purpose was just to have a baby with the partner and had no minimum age requirement. It was replaced with making love in March 2020. In all countries, the minimum age for making love is 16. You cannot make love if your partner is 16 but you are not 16 yet. However you can still make love if you are 16 but your partner is 15 or under. Following the November 2019 update, your partner may wish to save their virginity for marriage and you can decide can respect that, argue with them, propose to them, or decide that that is your wish too.
Propose - Your character will propose to your partner. They may reject or accept the proposal. If accepted, you will be engaged. If rejected, your lover's relationship will go down. Otherwise, your character's partner might propose to you, with the option to accept or reject the proposal. Following the March 2020 update, partners may now propose with rings. Previously, there was a bug where you could buy a ring as young as 10 by clicking on "Go ring shopping first", but it was later fixed. Same-sex couples may get engaged in countries where same-sex marriage is illegal, but they may not marry. 2b1af7f3a8
