Can we make them real and then immediately move them out?

But they would still get tossed into the household briefly. Your BF cannot be household members. Ever.

Ah okay, got it. Another question about household members actually: can we marry a spare and then move them and their spouse out?

No other Sims are allowed to enter the house beyond spouses and spares.

The only way to do that, I believe, would be to hold the wedding, then move the spare out at the time you get the household screen.

Yeah. She was actually a zombie and after being shot by the peashooter she died. My sims didn't even know her but got the wish.

No. You're only to bring in spouses for the heirs to bring in the next life state. And adding to the household at all means you have to go through all the requirements which you would not be doing in that situation.

Since there are no tasks to complete in the infant stage, are we allowed to age the heir up to toddler early?

No sorry.  For Heirs, being able to age early is earned as toddlers/children/teens.  Then they have to wait to fulfill the other 7 requirements before they can alter their life span again.

Another question (sorry!). In the case of twins / triplets, do we have to choose an heir right away or can we wait until they age up to toddler (or even later, assuming the requirements are met)?

The heir is the first child born that is a different life state any of the previous heirs.

The rules do say though that we're allowed to choose in the case of multiples, right? I have triplets who are ALL a different life state from the founder....

I'll ask Metro how he feels.  Until you choose an heir, all traits have to be random for all children whereas if you chose before the child stage, you'd be able to actually choose the traits of the spares.

Yeah it does say in the rules that the first born child that is a different life state is the heir but then says that with twins and triplets if they all qualify then you can choose.
That is a little confusing.

Actually sometime in the last week or so at Pam's suggestion,  we changed it to the first birth resulting in a different life state to lessen the confusion on allowing you to choose in the case of multiples.

Wait, so we can't choose when we have twins and triplets?  Is this now changing to first named? 

My first birth resulted in triplets that were all a different life state.  I randomized their traits as infants, eliminated one as a toddler, then chose the heir as a child.  Also, once one was determined to be a spare I aged them up early and moved them out, leaving only the heir at home with the parents.  The one I chose was the 2nd named in the 1st birth.

No, you can choose if it's multiples.  That part is staying in there.  That's why it's not the first birth of a different life state not first born.   

Teresa - you're still fine.

Metro says: "They can choose whenever they want as long as all the traits are random until the heir is chosen."

Sorry, I'm confused. Is it adding to the household if the spare moves out instead of the spare's spouse moving in? Thus no one new comes into the household? I'm not trying to question you, I just don't understand.

Phew, that was how I understood it, but then the talk sounded like you were taking out the multiples rule so I got nervous.   ;D  Now back to my regularly scheduled game.

Spares can only marry as a mechanic to move out.   You are not allowed to marry the spare off and then move them out as a separate action.   The moment you marry a spare off, you have to lose control of that Sim.  Otherwise you are adding to the household.

Metro said no because of the way that uponthewaters phrased the question.   That's why I want it very clear that if you're going to have a spare get married - there is no setting up with a try for baby.  There is a ceremony that your Sim throws and then you lose that Sim.  The spare will not be coming home with the heir and it's parent.
