Animal Crossing Fanon Wiki

One of the rare features from Animal Crossing games that are added to this game is Marriage. In New Leaf 2, players have the ability to get married. When marrying special villagers, there are 24 marriage candidates available, 12 for each gender. Same-sex marriage IS an option.

Each person who is eligible for marriage will have 10 sets of Hearts, which the player can see "Friend List" (that Red square on lower screen). To fill hearts, the player must do favorable things, such as talk to the person everyday and give gifts. It is possible to marry regular villagers the player has on their island, but it is also possible to marry special villagers such as the following:)


  • Blathers
  • Copper
  • Cyrus
  • Digby
  • K.K. Slider
  • Kapp'n
  • Kicks
  • Leif
  • Redd
  • Resetti
  • Rover
  • Tom Nook


  • Celeste
  • Harriet
  • Isabelle
  • Katrina
  • Labelle
  • Lottie
  • Mabel
  • Pelly
  • Phyllis
  • Reese
  • Sable
  • Willow


To get married, the player must complete these following requirements:

  1. Marriage candidate has 6 Hearts of affection
  2. View the first 4 Leaf Events, plus Date
  3. Upgrade house to Stage 3
  4. Buy the Engagement Ring from Nooklings stores
  5. Nookling Store is Super T&T or higher

Leaf Events[]

One of the requirements that players need to complete before they can get married is to see the candidate's 4 Leaf Events as well as Date. These events will become available as you raise your friendship with the marriage candidate. The player will see a leaf event when that person has 1 Leaf, and then again when you reach 2, 3, and 4 numbers.

Players can see Leaf Events if the person at a required Leaf number or higher. For example, you can still see 1 Leaf Event even though the person has 3 Leaves.

Some of the Leaf Events also require you to have a certain level of friendship with other event participants. For example, in Mabel's 2 Leaf Event, you need to have at least 500 LP with Rover before the event can trigger.

Additionally, there is a Date Event where a marriage candidate has 4,5 Leaves. Upon waking up in the morning after befriending that person to 4,5 Leaves, (s)he will ask if player would like to get together that day. Sometimes it is just for sight-seeing and other times it is for lunch. Players will want to be at the date location by 16:00.

House Upgrade[]

No boy or girl is going to live in that tiny Tent you started with. Before marrying someone, the player need to pay loan at Post Office to upgrade their house to Stage 3.

Now that the house is large for two people, the player needs to buy a Double bed for them and their spouse to sleep in. Double Bed can be bought at Nookling Stores if they sell it, or waiting for T&T Emporium to open and bought the item form GracieGrace,you can also find one in ReTail however it may take a bit longer.


To propose marriage to your potential spouse, the player must give him or her the Engagement Ring. This item will be available in Timmy and Tommy's stores, but only when the player reaches 5 Leaves with a marriage candidate.

Some of the candidates have additional requirements. If the player chooses to marry...

  • Blathers or Celeste, The Roost must be unlocked.
  • Isabelle, Digby must be unlocked.
  • K.K. Slider, it must be on Saturday.
  • Kapp'n, it cannot be on Summer season - June, July, or August. (He has to serve to his family's duties)
  • Labelle Mabel or Sabel, Shampoodle must be unlocked.
  • Leif, the Nookling Store must be upgraded to T&T Emporium.
  • Reese, Cyrus must be unlocked.
  • Resetti, Don Resetti must be unlocked by resetting.
  • Rover, Katie must be unlocked by made at least one internet connection.

When you completed all of the marriage requirements, the player can propose to their spouse. Give the person the Engagement Ring then he or she will accept it.

If the Engagement Ring is rejected, that means all of the marriage requirements have not been completed yet. Double check each one of the requirements, as this game will not allow players to marry with his/her spouse until they've cleared all.

Resetti and Katrina's proposal is different. This requires you to have at least 5,5 Leaves with one of them. Keep the Engagement Ring in your bag and then talk to him or her. We will be taken away to a romantic place to propose. You can accept the proposal (+1000 AP) or reject the proposal (-1000 AP). If you reject and one changes their mind, then you will have to propose as one normally would. Tom Nook is most difficult to marry, as he tends to play hard to get, and his events are more rare since he usually has to tend to Timmy and Tommy. Though while it's more difficult, it's still possible. 

Wedding Ceremony[]

If the Engagement Ring is accepted, the wedding will take place 7 days later. If the wedding is going to be scheduled on a festival day or villager's birthday, then the ceremony will be pushed to normal day afterward.

The wedding will take place in front of Town Tree. Tortimer will presides the ceremony and other villagers of New Leaf Town will be there to witness our wedding ceremony. The player and their spouse will wear wedding clothes; tuxedo for the boy and wedding dress for the girl. After the ceremony is over, the game credits will appear and then you will return back to your house. If you marry Resetti or Katrina, the wedding is in front of House with only two of us and Tortimer attended.

After married, the player's new spouse will ask what nickname they would like to be called. The player can choose a new name or simply re-enter (e.g. "honey", "dear", etc.). The chosen new name cannot be changed.

Every morning the player's spouse will pack them a lunch. Players can also talk to the person and ask them to do some of the work. Another option is to have the player's spouse follow them around when they are walking outside. Taking a walk with your spouse will help to increase his/her affection.

Every year on our wedding anniversary, the player's will prepare a special dinner. Go into your house between 19:00 and 20:00 to view the wedding anniversary event. The dinner party will end at 21:00.
