Harvest Moon DS Marriage Guide  

Hello and welcome to my guide on harvest moon ds marriage guide.
This is my first time writing a faq and hope you like it. This guide 
will cover most on what the bacherlorettes like, heart events, and rival 
heart events. I have played the game for a while  and I think Im pretty
 good at it about marriage. Please if i have made a error in my guide then
 please email me so I can change it. I'll also give you credit for it as well. 
My email will be at the very end of the guide, so feel free to email me. 

I and my friend have the game for quite a while. (Actually they only 
had it for like 2 week but they got addicted to it and just rushed through 
everything.) Me and my friends will give you the information that we 
have experienced during the game. Alright enough with the trash talk lets 
begin this guide.

Oh yeah and the reason why I created this guide because a lot of people
I see on the message boards of Harvest Moon DS asking "_____'s _____
heart event" and it seems that the people is getting a little annoyed so
I've decided to create this guide for the unstoppable heart event 
questions. It's complete with everyone's heart event (yes everyone) 
and rival heart events so you may take your time.     
decided to put the ctrl+f thing in.

version 1.02 (silly me).

Version 1. 04: Added a little more stuff in section 5a.



The game was released September 12th for the US and will be released for 
EU during November 17. The game does not have much typo during 
translations with Friends of Mineral Town. The graphics really didn't 
improve much. To me, it stills make me feel that I'm playing FoMT on a
 DS. The new feature of the game is the touch screen with the touch 
screen gloves. You can milk your cows with the touch screen but I'll let 
the general faqs and perhaps In-Dept faqs to cover that. The game
takes place 100 years after A wonderful life for gamecube and the main 
character died of perhaps natural age death. The harvest goddess also 
turned to stone. The mayor of friends of mineral town (yes a lot of 
people from mineral town will come even though you have not 
connected the games together) will come to pick up your shipping
items. Also, there are milker levels which is sort of messed up to 
level up (I think) and if your milker's level 99 (Like mine) then
you will recieve X0 (100, roman 10+a 0=X0) and make it
into cheese and then can it! It's actually much more easier to get money
than before. Oh and on your farm you have nothing but a house,
horse stable, your mentor's house and thats about it, you must build
everything else!!



The game still have the people from A wonderful life (Celia, Muffy and 
Nami) along with Lumina, and Flora. Each has different personalities, 
and your child's appearance will depend on who you・re married to. 
(A time table for the where they'll be at would be nice.)
In order to marry you need to find 60 lost sprites, have 3rd house 
upgrade, big bed and have seen all heart events. (Which will be in the 
heart event section. If you can't wait, you can like Spring Thanksgiving
abuse their affection towards you with their birthday.

BEWARE!! If you litter anywhere in the Valley then everyone including
the bacherlorettes will dislike you!! I've seen so many of  these questions
on the message boards...

Now these are not Mineral Town girls and your game will not end
when you marry one of them. These girls are special girls that are 
unlike the normal 5. The child you may have has a random appearance 
that the 5 girls could have. They are all boys. Normally the girls in this
section of SPECIAL GIRLS are required to do all these wierd stuff, but 
Leia (Mermaid) will only need you to have a duck pond and be 
friends with Daryl before you may even see her.

HARVEST GODDESS: ok marrying the harvest goddess like 
FoMT require a lot of things done. The heart events will 
explain what requirements are needed. Of course, the 
black heart event will be acheived because you need to find
60 sprites in order to bring the Harvest Goddess back so 
it will take a while to marry her. She won't even live in your
house so what's the point of the big bed Natsume?! 

BEWARE!! the requirements also needed you to ship every item
you can possibly get, including the rare buckwheat flour. 
You may and may not get this item (thanks jehanne argentee
for correcting me) and the necklace does not appear on the 
mining list.

Karen's supermarket

 and fish fossil.

 You must do the opposite of the harvest goddess. Again the 
Heart events section will explain. (WINTER 29)

Likes: curry dishes, everything that everyone hate 
(grasses, some specific gems)
Dislikes: dog ball, items and jewelry found in site

(Mad scientist) basement. you can find her after your 
good friends with Daryl. (SUMMER 30)

These are special *moments* that can only happen when you reach that 
specific love color. Usually when you answer correctly that person raises 
(amount please) love points. You need to have watched them all in order
PAST THE COLOR. Like if that person has a green heart but you missed the
blue heart event, you do not need to lower her heart.

These are your rivals heart events, thus the name rival heart event. Instead 
of you being the main character on this event it is the rival of a girl. The 
rivals are: Rock (Lumina), Carter (Flora), Marlin (Celia), Gustafa (Nami) 
and Griffin (Muffy). Once you have completed all 4 heart events (Black,
blue, green, and orange) the rival and the spouse will marry 1 week
later. Do not go to these areas at this time unless you want them to marry.
 You can watch these after your married too.

Ok once your *designated* wife has a orange heart for you, the blue feather
 will be available at Karen's supermarket for 1000g. When you give the blue 
feather when she has a orange heart then she wont accept and will only 
accept when she has a red heart. They wont accept if you have not met the
requirements (section 3). Also sometimes even though you have met the 
requirements and have a red heart they still wont accept, so just keep on 
giving her gifts until she accepts.

If your *wife* has agreed to marry you then you will be married a week 
after. You should hire the sprites because it takes a whole day like in
 FoMT. The credits will then roll. After that you have the option that 
what your wife will call you (honey, sexy, sweety etc) and you
 will begin your next day. The people that use to live with your wife
(ex. Lumina is Romana, Celia is Marlin and Vesta.) will gain maxed 
out friendship points. 

If you have kept your wife's heart level to 10 (farm summary page) 
then she will one day ask you to go to the doctor with her. She 
will be pregnant and you will have your baby child soon. After 
60 days of waiting your child will born. Like in FoMT it will take 
the whole day so hire the sprites. Give your baby a name and 
the game will automatically skip ahead 3 years. Your character 
will pretend to have worked for 3 years but you do not get any 
more money. After that whole cutscene your child will be a 
toddler. (Those around 3-5) Your child's appearance will
depend on your wife.

Also, *SPOILERS* Burney circus will move in to the 
Construction site. Hugh and Kate will become like a young adult. 
 It takes your child 2 years to grow into a kid (7-10?) and will grow into 
a young adult in 2 years. Hugh and Kate will not grow anymore though.
 Your child will never and I'll repeat never help you with your work. 
He will be like a lazy guy (yes your child can only be a guy) and do nothing. 
Oh and your child will be like everyone else's, except they look different. They
the same food so I will put a chart on.
Favorites: seasonal flowers, cake, cookies, chocolate cookies, ice cream
Likes: products made by animals, empty can, dog ball
Dislikes: fish (any size), ores, cheese, duck eggs
Hates: colored grass, animal food, stone and wood lumber.

Oh yes I forgot to add this, the special girls (goddess, witch leia and Keria)
will have a random baby look that the girls could have. Completly random,
but I've heard that if you do not like it (for me Nami's look like a girl) save
before the baby is born and the next day if you don't like your child 

add on to the spoilers, SOMEONE IN THE VALLEY WILL DIE!!!
*horror music starts playing*


Ok, since you're married, you probably think that:"will anything special
happen?". Ok, your answer is yes, there are new events added on 
when you are married. A not-so-complete chart will be posted
down here. These are the ones so far I've seen, so more will be added.

obviously, that will be the first one you'll witness. Unlike FoMT, your 
wife does not wear a bride's clothing, just a regular one. Everyone
in town will be at the wedding, even your rival.

This will happen if you have your wife's heart level (on the summary
page,) to 10 for 1 whole season, she will one day ask you to go to
Dr.Hardy with her. You will find out that you are now parents!!

This will happen after your wife has been pregnant (see CHILD) 
for 2 whole seasons. You and your wife's family will be in the 
kitchen, waiting for your baby to be born. Then you hear this
baby sound, and the screen moves over to your bed. Your 
wife will ask you to name your child. CREDITS will roll at this
time. Then it has one of those pop-up messages saying 
"3 years later..." and your child will be a walking baby!!!
You'll find out what happens, or you have just read the spoilers.

This is a random thing, but I think you need your child to have
max FP and your wife must have max LP and FP. One day your
wife will ask you if you want to go on a picnic with your child.
If you do, your wife will ask you if you want to go to the 
goddess pond or the beach. I won't tell you what happens,
find out yourself. The picnic takes a whole day, and it ends
at 6:00 PM. 

Well, the name says it all. Every year your wife like the picnic
event will wake you up and ask you what day is it. REMEMBER!!
if you get it wrong, she loses like a heart or something. I've
never really forgot, but I'll see if she'll still give you the 
mysterious item *SCREAMS*. 

Of course people have to celebrate birthdays. Sadly, you can 
only celebrate after you're married. Remember what you
, or wife or your child's birthday. After work (if you have time)
, you can sit outside and wait for 6:00 pm and go in. The event
will happen.

This happens during the last day of Fall. It's exactly like FoMT,
you go in your house during 6 pm and you and your child
(If born) will have a special sweet dinner.

This will happen during Winter 14. Instead of getting chocolate,
you will recieve chocolate cake no matter what. You will obtain
it when you sleep.

you will watch this with your wife. Just talk to her and it will 

This will happen during Winter 24. Go to your house when it
is 6 pm and the cutscene will start.

Not exactly a special event with your child or wife, but you can
abuse their affection towards you this day. Giving them cookies
will give you 1,000 LPs!!!


6. Frequently asked questions (so far from message boards and
a little email) (HMDS9)

Question: _______'s affection to me is dropping without notice!!
Answer: You must be littering. If you throw a weed or a stick or something 
anywhere in the valley everyone will dislike you. If I were you I would sell
them, they are 1g each.

Question: need help with _______'s _____ heart event.
Answer: look in faqs...

Question: How do I (mine,fish,eat, etc)?
Answer: Look in your manual or you can figure out yourself.

Question: ______ won't accept my blue feather!!
Answer: have you met your requirements today?? Make sure you have
the big bed, red heart level, 2nd house upgrade (which is needed for
the big bed anyway) and 60 sprites rescued=Harvest Goddess.

Question: Will your wife/child help you on your farm work??
Answer: No, they will never help you.

Question:What is the legendary sword/how do I use it??
Answer: for god's sake read a faq, or you can find out yourself. First,
even though I do not enjoy answering this question, the L.S. will be 
located on the very last level of the second mine(255). Defeat all evil
monsters there and the door SHOULD open, if not, you might want
to save before doing it. After the door opens, Keria in her bed will 
give you the L.S. Just take it. After that, you can use it to cut weeds
and defeat evil animals at the cost of 5 stamina per slash. Also, you
can use it to get into the waterfall cave. A lot of people are asking 
this question, and you press A, not Y, in front of the rock. There
you go. No more L.S. questions.(Pheh!) *NEW RECORD FOR
