Information about marriage---how it works, who you can marry, etc.---in Harvest Moon DS can be found here.

There are 9 potential wives in this game, but if you plug in your copy of Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town or More Friends of Mineral Town (for the Game Boy Advance), you can boost up the bachelorette count to 14. The 5 normal wives are Muffy, Lumina, Flora, Celia and Nami. After them come the 4 special wives: the Harvest Goddess, Leia the mermaid, Witch Princess, and Keria. Lastly there are the 5 girls you can only get from the GBA connection. Those are Karen, Mary, Ann, Elli, and Popuri.

The Marriage System


You need to give gifts in order to boost up the Love Points (LP) of a woman. There are 2 values to her affection level: Love Points (LP) and Friendship Points (FP). LP are more important toward a woman, and are only effective for the fourteen bachelorettes (FP are pretty much for the other villagers' friendship towards you.)

Friendship Points are only counted towards the girl's random events, so if she's at a red heart, she's probably at the max Friendship Points value, as well. There is a heart gauge that is shown next to the girls (except the Mineral Town girls). It starts out as grey, but if you level up her points, it will go from grey to purple, to blue, to green, to yellow, to orange, and finally to red. A red heart (60,000 + LP) is the highest heart level there is.

Marriage Requirements

There are certain requirements for you to marry any of the normal brides. Of course, you must have her at a Red Heart Level. The other requirements are:

  • Must have rescued at least 60 Harvest Sprites.
  • Must have bought a Blue Feather, which becomes available in Karen's Supermarket when you get a woman at an Orange Heart Level.
  • Must own a Big Bed.
  • Must have activated all 4 of her heart events.

Harvest Goddess:

There are requirements for certain special girls as well. For the Harvest Goddess, you must:

  • Be on your 5th year or beyond
  • Ship at least 1 of everything available
  • Get the Legendary Sword and unlock the field behind the Waterfall
  • Discover every type of item hidden in the 4 mines
  • Find all 101 Harvest Sprites

You need certain requirements to see her heart events as well.

For Leia, you must have a duck pond built on your farm before she will accept your proposal. After she swims to the beach (for the yellow heart event), you can only find her on Tuesday night at midnight, going into Wednesday morning. For her yellow heart event, you must also have caught a message in a bottle with a Mystrile fishing pole.

For Keria, you must reach the 255th floor of the 3rd mine every time to talk to her. Give her items she likes, and give her the item on the sign next to her bed for her heart events.

Witch Princess:
For the Witch Princess, you need to give her 10,000 presents before she will accept your proposal. The presents you give her to increase her heart color will count towards that goal, but do not expect the game to read a stack of 99 of one item, because it will not count toward the 10,000 item goal. You need certain requirements to see some of her heart events, as well.
