SoS: Friends of Mineral Town Bachelorette Marriage Guide

The items each of Mineral Town's girls like best and worst, and which of their favorites are easiest to get.

Your schedule is packed tight in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. Nonetheless, you've likely got your eye on one of the guys or gals available to date and eventually marry in town.

Getting someone to enjoy your company enough to marry you is a time-consuming process. Not just because of the sheer amount of gifts you have to toss their way over time, but because you must reach particular progression goals before anyone will even consider moving in with you.

In this guide, we'll be focusing on the seven eligible bachelorettes in town, particularly their extensive lists of liked and disliked items.

Giving townsfolk items that are their favorites, loved, or liked will increase their fondness for you by increasing amounts; while giving them items they dislike or hate will decrease how they feel about you. The gains and losses are as follows:

  • Favorite items grant 9 Friend Points and 800 Love Points
  • Loved items grant 9 Friend Points and 500 Love Points
  • Liked items grant 3 Friend Points and 300 Love Points
  • Neutral items grant 1 Friend Point and 100 Love Points
  • Disliked items remove 3 Friend Points and 500 Love Points
  • Hated items remove 9 Friend Points and 800 Love Points

In short: You just don't want to give someone an item they dislike or hate, under any circumstances unless you outright do not like them — though that gives you no gameplay benefits.

How to Get Married in SoS: FoMT

The requirements for this have remained mostly steady since Back to Nature:

  1. Get a character's heart up to a red heart via gift giving and seeing/participating in their heart events. Once a character reaches a new heart level, you can find them at the right time and place to trigger the event for that tier.
  2. Upgrade your house twice, to the Big House.
    1. It costs 150 Lumber, 50 Material Stone, and 3000G for the first upgrade, to the Slightly Bigger House.
    2. It costs 600 Lumber, 250 Material Stone, and 10000G for the second upgrade, to the Big House.
  3. Buy the Large Bed from the shop.
  4. Give your love interest a Preserved Flower, one of which will be given to you for free after triggering a character's red heart event.

In the item listings below, items that are particularly easy to obtain are underlined to make this whole process easier. I know I end up giving people pretty much the same things over and over, it's likely you will too.

Popuri's Likes and Dislikes

Popuri and her mother have a distinct feature from the rest of Mineral Town's residents: their pink hair and red eyes.

Popuri helps her brother run the chicken farm, with her mother on sales duty. She's certainly the bubbliest of the girls you could marry in Friends of Mineral Town and would love to leave and see the world, but she's a country girl at heart and isn't too keen on exotic or spicy foods.

Her birthday is on Summer 3, and Kai will be your rival for her affections.

Ran's Likes and Dislikes

Mineral Town's very own tomboy tsundere, Ran spends most of her time helping her father run the inn — though she can be found each morning at the Goddess' Pond soaking in nature.

She is quite the cook thanks to working at the inn, and naturally she's keen on receiving foods as gifts.

Elly's Likes and Dislikes

Elly isn't just kept hard at work at the clinic, she also has to take care of her elderly grandmother and rambunctious little brother.

Taking care of Ellen and Yu keeps Elly plenty busy and grounded, and she has a clear crush on Doctor from the outset. Young love isn't permanent though, and she can be won over with a little effort and a lot of grass.

Jennifer's Likes and Dislikes

Jennifer and Brandon are brand new to this Friends of Mineral Town release, and are fairly easy to woo compared to the classic characters.

Jennifer herself lives in a tent up on the hill, and likes to talk about spirituality. Interestingly, she gets along well with Popuri's mother, Lillia. Out of place and mostly talking about chakras, she's a far cry from the other girls in Mineral Town.

Karen's Likes and Dislikes

Originally the most popular girl between Harvest Moon 64, Back to Nature, and Friends of Mineral Town, Karen lives on here in SoS: FoMT with the same attitude and a totally different design.

Outgoing and smart, Karen spends a fair amount of time both helping her parents around the shop and hanging out with Rick.

Marie's Likes and Dislikes

Marie is Mineral Town's resident bookworm, compounded by her father's obsession with local flora and fauna. She's not just a librarian, though — much like her father, she has a penchant for writing.

You can most often find Marie tending the library, though she heads up to Mother's Hill with her family on her days off. Timid and more than busy, she prefers to take things slowly.

Marie's birthday is on Winter 20, and your rival for her affection is Gray... provided he doesn't leave town.

Harvest Goddess Likes and Dislikes

The Harvest Goddess is a little different from the other girls in Mineral Town in more ways than the obvious.
