To recap: This is my attempt at a Polyamory Project Challenge,created by princedeej28. The point of the challenge is toromance more than one Sim and earn enough points to makeHugh Hefner jealous.Last time, I ran a number of experiments, mostly conclusive.The overall lesson was that Vanessa can, in fact, becomejealous and angry, and you really don’t want her in that mood. Imean, you really don’t want her in that mood.

Actually, that was a bad day all around. Bertie took a stage divewhen he shouldn’t have and lost his job.

Not everybody has a bad relationship. In fact, Zenon andProfessor Arianna have only gotten more affectionate in theirold age.
