Fabian Branch Sample began his first day of married life by making breakfast.
Mac ‘n’ cheese. Well, it was a great breakfast when he was a bachelor.
Zahra, not the most inspired of communicators, pretty much broke the news to her family by letting them watch the new state of affairs. They were surprised but supportive.
“So, dear, it looks like you got married last night.”
“Yeah. It seemed like the thing to do.”
“He seems like a nice man, dear, but he doesn’t bring in much of a salary. Do you think we can afford it?”
(Fabian did bring in about 1100 simonleons, which I think is the lowest amount any spouse has brought into the family so far. Law enforcement clearly does not pay.)
The men were even lower key.
“You gonna make my daughter happy?”
(The men spontaneously bonding in their underwear was pretty awesome.)
Fabian and Adjo were already pals for reasons only the Sims game was tracking. I have to guess it’s mostly because they’re both people people, so they could hardly bump into each other in any context without becoming friends. Shanni didn’t have a lot of use for men that she wasn’t staking a claim on, and Fabian really wasn’t her type anyway, but they coexisted all right.
He pledged to help with Charles, but mostly what he did was take over other household responsibilities so that Zahra could spend more time with him.
He also convinced her that subtle pink accents in their bedroom was not only manly, but tasteful. Zahra, who didn’t pay much attention to aesthetics anyway, let him have his way.
(Yes, his favorite color is pink. I notice you can see him telling her this on their park date when they were teens. Fabian is such a Sensitive New Age Guy. I have vivid memories of adding pink accents to their bedroom and even photographing it, and I can neither find the photographs nor evidence of the pink in later photos. Did I do this on a version of the game that crashed on me? The world may never know. I’m at least two weeks beyond this, Sim-time, and I’ll have re-redecorate their bedroom.)
Things got back to routine in the Sample household, and in due course, Zahra and Fabian had happy news to report.
