One of the biggest draws to any farming sim is the ability to get married. Rune Factory is a series known for in-depth characters, making them all the more appealing to date. Before you put a ring on it, though, you’re going to need to win the heart of your beloved.

How to get married in Rune Factory 4 Special

Getting married should be pretty familiar to you if you’ve ever played another farming sim. You will need to raise the affection level of the character you want to marry by talking to them each day and presenting them with gifts.

Once you have reached ten hearts, you will be able to marry them, provided you’ve seen their animated cutscene. If you are playing as the male character, then you will also need to buy a double bed from Blossom and craft an engagement ring once you reach crafting level 20.
