According to the developers, their romance is an important aspect of the game’s mission to enjoy “the joy of finding love”, honoring that love and sharing tales that have special meaning.”As stated by the developer, this was not anything that they intended to modify or eliminate in order to comply with Russian Gay Propaganda law stating:
“We are steadfast in upholding that commitment by shining a light on and celebrating stories like Dom and Cam’s, so we have made the decision to forgo the release of “My Wedding Stories” where our storytelling would be subject to changes because of federal laws. Regrettably, this means that members of The Sims community in Russia will not be able to purchase this game pack.”

The decision shows The Sims’ dedication to diversity and inclusion in-game. Since it is a life simulation title, The Sims 4 lets players create their own avatars and tales, and although Sims has always had the ability to WooHoo, court, and marry other Sims of similar gender, recent updates to The Sims 4 have improved the realism even further. Additionally, the game’s previous upgrades have made it easier for women and minorities to use the restroom, as well as for pregnant women to use gender-neutral pronouns.
