Coral Island offers a buffet of 25 romanceable characters to date, but it seems not even the game’s programming can keep track of the romance options.

Coral Island has wholly hijacked the lives of cozy gamers like me, thanks to its addictive diving system, adorable giant crops, and alineup of incredibly attractive characters up for grabs. During the game’s Early Access and pre-release press, they were all advertised to death through a popularity contest. But now, players are hitting a wall with Coral Island’s post-marriage chats. Spouses are getting confused and acting like strangers, turning this into a polyamory nightmare instead of the intended romantic heaven — it’s a total unscripted mess.
Though Coral Island released its full 1.0 version last week, players have run into a fair share of bugs, especially in the late game. Reddit user branmkerby had Pablo, one of the romanceable NPCs, toast to their marriage at Fishensips, the local bar. It was a romantic move, or at least it would have been if they were actually married.
This player is actually married to someone else entirely but had been flirty enough with Pablo pre-marriage to confuse Coral Island’s programming.
This is not the only issue players have run into with post-marriage dialogue. Being polyamorous by accident is funny enough, but nothing beats your spouse acting like she doesn’t know you. LiamLVB set on a quest to marry Alice, a girl whose only flaw is that she doesn’t like pizza, only to wake up to a “Congrats on your marriage!” dialogue line one morning.
