EA has put the relationship thing too high. If they think about another sim, want to jam with them, etc. and the same sim is often in their thoughts, I think EA makes it turn into a wish for more. I've had numerous problems with relationships and my sim was completely faithful; but, her husband didn't think so.
On the other hand, I had a sim who flirted with everyone in town and her relationship with her hubby was eternally faithful. Go figure!

Hi all,  after I posted my message, I caught the girlfriend flirting with another sim and my guy talked to her and "she could see that he was insulted".  The option to kiss goodbye wasn't there.  Only goodbye.   She still has her eternally faithful moodlet.  His is still gone.  I thought it might come back, but not so far.  Strange she gets to keep hers.  I agree with you MoMoll - go figure...  I'm not very keen on how the relationship thing works. 

Another thing that really bothers me is when two sims sit on a bench (sex not withstanding) the cuddle icon at the top automatically comes up and I have to quickly click it off.  You really have to watch for that.  No more sitting on the bench.  A royal nuisance.

In my tourist challenge game my Sim got the Cheater reputation followed by the manipulator reputaton then finally the casanova reputation.

Evidently having two woman as romantic interests means he is a cheater having six or seven equals a casanova. Such double standards  :o.

I have also had Sims accuse their other halves of cheating when they haven't but I guess that is true to life too.

The wiki has a list of how the reputations progress. You need 7 romantic relationships to get the casanova reputation, which makes it easier to have romances. You only get the cheater reputation if you get caught, or if you confess. And that makes it harder to have romances.

Also, the 'betrayed' moodlet cancels out the effect of the LTR 'Master of Seduction'. Any flirty interactions you do will be met with negative reactions.

Even cancelling the action doesn't always work! I had a happily married sim sitting on a bench when Alma Drill sat down and the action "Be cuddled with" appeared. They were best friends, nothing more. I got rid of the icon and I had my sim chat with her instead. My sim leaves to go meet her wife at the library, she starts reading there while her wife continues to work from home...next thing I know the wife drops everything in her queue and is "upset," my sim gets publicly disgraced and loses a couple of friends plus almost gets accused of cheating by the wife! I say almost because I exited without saving. :P

Honestly, I'm glad I exited because I had another sim recently who had a romantic interest that he never asked to be just friends, and about a week after he married my other sim, he was accused of cheating by the romantic interest - he and the romantic interest went from being best friends to slightly disliked as she considered him "unforgivably rude." The description cracked me up, but the loss in friendship did not - it would have been a huge pain if it had been his wife, and it could just as easily happened that way.

I guess you both already know this but I'll say it anyway because I just had a problem: traits like flirty can get your sim in trouble right before your eyes! Even while controlling them. I've had it happen during conversations where I had a few socials like "chat" lined up. At one point Mortimer Goth almost had my sim kicked out of the house for behaving inappropriately with Cornelia. I couldn't figure out what happened, but I just went ahead and apologized to Gunther anyway (Mortimer had ratted my sim out to Gunther). All was well after that. I guess when they socialize at work this could also happen (?)

@beardeux I just experienced a bench cuddling problem as well! In this case my sim was a gold digger so I went ahead and accepted the cuddle, and then old Landgraab freaked out on her and informed me he was married to Nancy.  He's the one who started cuddling before I even clicked the box to accept. I guess I'll be wary of benches now too.

makes you wonder if all this romance is worth it...just like real life...

Anyway, I still don't have my eternally faithful moodlet back yet, don't know if it will come back.  Maybe he can earn it again.  Meanwhile, I'm keeping an eye on the girlfriend who has been flirting around yet keeps her EF moodlet.  I get perturbed when little things like this happen for seemingly no reason. 

It all comes of caring to much for these little friends of ours.

I had that happen sitting on the couch next to the teenage daughter of a friend. My female sim got a bad reputation for flirting with her friend's daughter, because I was watching her husband while he transacted business. They never touched each other; but, apparently the game acted like they did.
