Sun Haven – Male Romance Guide (Updated)

Sun Haven is a fantasy farming RPG that has a whole lot to do. But one of the things you’re probably going to be spending a lot of time with is the romance system. There are 15 characters for you to date (even more than one) and eventually marry and have kids if you want to. Relationships start off like most IRL, you start as friends and then after a few dates, and some deep conversation, you can start dating! It’s best to have an idea of what you’re getting into to optimise the best gifts to give them. Gold doesn’t grow on trees!

In this guide, we’ll show you all of the romanceable male characters. And keep you up to date on the latest updates and game changes. If you want to read about the female romance characters, tab this link open too!

Note: This article has been updated with information from Sun Haven’s latest patch v1.3 which was released in October 2023.

   

Relationship Stages In Sun Haven

There are five relationship stages that you can achieve with your romance candidates that begin with friendship and that can eventually end in marriage. In order to progress that way you’ll need to engage your intended beloved in conversation and gifting. Do this every day and watch that relationship build.

These are the relationship stages that you’ll encounter in Sun Haven and what they mean for your character.

 

Friendship

This is the default state that you’ll begin with all characters. There are no perks and no special options at this stage. In order to open it up you will need to progress the relationship level to the next relationship stage – dating.

 

Dating

Once the player has progressed through the friendship stage enough your intended will ask if you would like to go on a date. If you accept you’ll unlock a special mission that you can follow through with.

The date itself is a sequence of dialogue similar to the dialogue checks prompted by interacting with romance candidates. You’ll be able to go on two unique dates with either bachelor or bachelorette you decide. And after the second date, they will ask you to go start dating officially. This will unlock new dialogue cycles.

Note: There is currently no limit to the number of characters the player can date at once

 

Engaged

Once you’ve reached 15 hearts with a romance candidate, you’ll unlock the option to propose to them. If you’d like to take your relationship to the next stage, head over to Town Hall and buy the Engagement Ring. If they accept your proposal your wedding will happen the following day at 4 pm.

Make this decision wisely because you won’t be able to marry anyone else after this!

 

Wedding

The next day you’ll attend the ceremony where you’ll have one last option to back out of the marriage by selecting “I do not”. If however, you select “I do” then you and your partner will be married and exchange wedding rings.

This unlocks the Enchanted Wedding Ring: +30 HP, +30MP, +20%EXP

 

Married

Once you’re married the relationship level cap with your spouse is raised from 15 hearts to 20. This adds a significant amount of new dialogue.

The primary perk of being married is that you’ll be able to enter their house at any time and sleep in their bed as well.
