View Full Version : How to use Marriage option

10th Aug 2005, 01:30
I've played this game maybe 3 times now and have never gotten to marry to any country. I've played as Great Britain and then my child left me after I picked the wrong gov't. Then as Russia I picked Dictatorship and someone of my royal family was murdered and I'm guessing it was my son?? Can someone tell me if this happened to them or what I am doing wrong?

your odds of marriage increase if you choose your daughter as your heir. this isn't massachussets, you know! :p

Ok this time I'm gonna pick a daughter and see if it works. If anyone has gotten it to work just tell me how you did it so I can get some idea here. I'm not even sure if getting married into another country is good.

I think you got to pick "Absolute" type of gov then the marrige opt is available .Then you have to wait until your daughter come of age only to marry her to the male heir of gov of your type.

i have married into austria twice, i find if you have a freindly nation of 90% smphathy you should find it easier to convince them to marry your offspring.

well i just started another campaign as england, picked william as heir, as soon as i selected absolute monarchy over dictatorship, it reveiled the marriage option, and when i selected marriage option via diplomacy screen, austria light up, they offered to marry william for 27000, they did not say weather he was to marry their daughter or son tho. :o

btw austria was about 70% sympathy

To arrange a marriage, both countries have to be monarchies (the specific type of a monarchy does not matter); hence both need to be in the third era. Also, the heirs need to be of opposite sexes.
