Wylde Flowers is our newest obsession for a lot of reasons: you can play as a queer witch, there’s more to it than just farming, and there are plenty of romance options that you can get closer to throughout many hours of gameplay.
A farming life simulator game with a witchy twist, players stake on the role of Tara Wylde – a young woman who leaves her life in the city to move to the town of Fairhaven.
Our review of Wylde Flowers included plenty of different head nods towards the queer representation involved in the game, which goes beyond the romance options present within the farming life sim. Indeed, if you want queerness in your video games, go no further than the newest game from Studio Drydock.
But who are these romance options in the first place? Let’s find out!

Now this is a fella who’ll have you swoon once it hits a full moon!
Westley Vuk, 35, appears during the Summer season, presenting Tara with a gift that potentially has more details about her important lineage. From that little interaction, players discover he is a connoisseur of books. Good thing he’s a book-seller!
Tara will get the chance to talk more to Westley on Mondays and Tuesdays, where he spends his time just outside of Kim’s butcher shop. If there’s one thing this man appreciates outside of his love for you, it’s his meat.

Wylde Flowers Romance Guide – How do you get married in Wylde Flowers?
Now that you know how to get closer to your love interest in Wylde Flowers, the next question is how to take that relationship further? Can you even get married in this game, or is the queer marriage love scene only available to cuties Francis and Angus?
Not only are you able to get married in Wylde Flowers, getting to that point is easier than you think.

This will come naturally as you play, and with each heart filled you’ll progress through to the next stage of your relationship until you become the partner of your romance interest. To raise your relationship, you can give characters gifts or simply just talking to them every day.
Once you’ve got your 6 hearts, the next step is to talk to Francis and buy a ring mold from him. Then use the mold with Natalia, the local blacksmith, who will fashion you a ring.

Wylde Flowers Romance Guide – How do you get divorced in Wylde Flowers?
Sometimes marriages just don’t work out, and you have to be prepared to shell out some money in order to get away from the person you originally loved. The same goes for Wylde Flowers, because sure it may contain magic and witches, but don’t let anyone tell you it isn’t realistic about the act of divorce.
How to get divorced in this game is quite simple, but costly. Ignore your partner for a while (it can take up to 3-5 days usually), until you get notified that there needs to be a ‘talk’ between you both. It’s during this conversation you can bring up breaking up which is as awkward and painful as it sounds. Regardless, the divorce will be (mostly) amicable, and the only thing you’ll have to do then is go to Francis, shell over 1k of money for a break-up ring and then present it to your ex.
