Who to pair with Brandi and why?

    Last time I played her a few laptops ago, I left her single, sent Dustin to University with Angela Pleasant, and let Brandi raise Beau and her new baby.

    Both are single parents and widows, so they would have a lot in common. It also irks me that the game sets Darren up to be romantic with Cassandra. She's way too young for him. Darren and Brandi both have teenage sons so they're closer in age.

    In my game, a lot of my Pleasantview Sims have multiple marriages. In Brandi's case she first marries Malcom Landgraab because she's jealous of her friend Dina marrying rich. Only Brandi finds out Malcom is cruel, abusive and cold. After Mortimer dies Dina eventually steals Malcom away from Brandi and Malcom kicks her out on the street even though she gave birth to two of his children, a daughter and then his heir/son. Brandi and Darren always have 3 bolts of chemistry and have a great friendship throughout their time in Pleasantview and while her own children from before: Dustin, Beau and Skip Jr won't take her in, she's left homeless and goes to crash on the only place she knows... Darren's couch. He takes her in, feels sorry for her, they end up having pity woohoo and she becomes pregnant yet again. Darren does the honorable thing and marries her. They stay married some what happily until he dies. By this point, it's their third marriage for both of them because Darren had already married someone else before Brandi (it's complicated and another story lol). While I never see Brandi or Darren passionately in love with each other, they have a great friendship and do find each other attractive (3 bolts) and find it easy to talk to one another.

    I always played her as a strong single independent mom.

    It really is... In my game I made Brandi be more of a villain than others usually play her. I think she's the type who see's what she wants and goes for it despite what it might cost those around her... like it just seems suspicious to me that she's such good friends with Dina and Nina who are notoriously known for also being selfish Sims. Like why would they be all such good friends with only her? I always thought it was weird. Basically Brandi is jealous of Dina now living this rich lifestyle and becomes a bit of a gold digger herself albeit for slightly different ulterior motives (being a family sim and all) and abandons her family of Dustin, Beau and Skip Jr for Malcome Landgraab. She's just assumes Dustin can handle it which of course... makes Dustin very bitter. They already don't have a strong relationship when you start the game and this just makes it worse.

    I usually break Daniel and Mary-Sue up, have him do a bachelor thing for a moment, then eventually get with Brandi. When he does, I typically change his aspiration to wealth or family instead of keep it romance. I like to think after his divorce he took a long look at himself and realized he was an ❤️❤️❤️❤️, but also that it was too late to get his wife back, so he changed his ways and moved on for the better.

    I usually get a matchmaker for Brandi - I honestly don't know what townie she would go with
