Friendship and Marriage in Stardew Valley 

Menu of friendship heart index in Stardew Valley 

Friendship in Stardew Valley is measured through the heart. The villagers usually have a maximum of 10 hearts. When marrying, they will increase to 12. You can see the full list of hearts on the menu, as shown above. 

 How to increase friendship. 

• Talk to the villagers every day. 

• Give gifts they like twice a week. 

• Help them complete missions. 

• Select correctly in heart donation events. 

• Dance or interact with them at the festivals. 

 How to end a friendship 

• No longer talking to them. 

• Give them a gift they don’t like. 

• Slingshot at them. 

• Find their trash when they are nearby. 

Best gifts 

Gift-giving is one of the best ways to improve friendship with the Stardew Valley villagers. Just drag the object they like and drop it above them. You can do this once a day and twice a week. 

However, there is an exception in this rule: Birthdays. You can always give gifts to the villagers on their birthdays. You should do so because it has a more positive impact and a particularly intimate conversation. The gifts in Feast of the Winter Star also award friendship ratings. 

Some gifts provide valuable rewards when you give it to the villagers 

• Fruits. 

• Maple syrup. 

• Longevity medicine. 

• Crafts beside cooking oil and Void Mayonnaise. 

• Delicious food with fried eggs, bread, and unique dumplings. 

• Flowers are better than Poppy. 

• Gems and minerals are better than quartz. 

• Green vegetables are more valuable than wheat & hops. 

How to marry. 

Heart events are special for every villager. They are unlocked at certain thresholds, usually 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 hearts. 

After two heart events, you can go to the bedroom of that villager to chat more easily every day. You cannot raise more than 8 hearts with any partner candidate without giving them flowers. You can get it from Pierre’s department store for 200 gold. 

After unlocking all 10 hearts, you can win them in the usual way. Note: you can make an appointment with anyone or all villagers at the same time. If you do so, there will surely be consequences, but they only last for one week and do not prevent you from marrying another. However, do not act like that in real life. 

When you own 10 hearts and want to propose, you need to give them a mermaid’s necklace. You can buy it from Old Mariner on the other side of the broken bridge on the beach for 5000 gold. You will get married within 3 days after giving it to your partner. Other candidates will return to ordinary residents. 

How to divorce 

If for some reason, you are unhappy with your chosen partner, Stardew Valley supports divorce and selects another partner. 

However, be careful because this action puts the heart’s index at zero, and the unpleasant conversations about the marriage will also take place. 

To divorce, you need to interact with the book inside City Hall and spend 50,000 gold. If you don’t cancel the divorce certificate at the end of the day, your wife & all their possessions will disappear from your home the next day. However, you can keep the children if you want. 

The ex-lover will then be labeled on the menu and refuse any future gifts from you. However, when unlocking the witch’s hut, you can erase the memory of your ex-spouse for 30,000 gold. And for the next time you meet, you & they will be like newcomers.
