The key is not to make your spouse too angry. Sometimes if you do things wrong, they will get mad at you. if you spend money too recklessly—or do crazy things—your spouse might get very upset. You will usually get an event when this happens. Read the event to figure out what you did wrong. For example, I had a spouse get mad in one playthrough because I bought a bunch of expensive houses. Another got mad because I bought 13 cats. If you want it to last, make sure you put time into the marriage. Check your spouse’s relationship meter in the Relationships tab. You will want it to remain as full as possible.
Renewing vows is also part of the challenge, so make sure to do that at some point over the years. This is also a good way to improve a souring relationship if you’re having problems keeping your partner happy.
