If you’re playing the game and wondering which character are eligible marriage candidates, I’ve got you covered. Check out our list of the Stardew Valley bachelors and bachelorettes below.
Stardew Valley Bachelors
In Stardew Valley there are a total of six eligible bachelors for you to pursue. These bachelors range from all walks of life and have pretty interesting side stories if you wish to pursue them. Here’s the town bachelors:
Alex lives with his grandparents in the blue house to the southeast of Pierre’s shop. As the dev update describes him:
“Alex loves sports and hanging out at the beach. He is quite arrogant and brags to everyone that he is going to be a professional athlete. Is his cockiness just a facade to mask his crushing self-doubt? Is he using his sports dream to fill the void left by the disappearance of his parents? Or is he just a brazen youth trying to ‘look cool?’”Developer Blog.
If you romance and marry Alex he will move onto the farm and create a weight room both inside and outside the farmhouse. Alex will spend his time lifting weights outside if the weather is nice.
Elliot is a long-haired beach dweller who you will find most often on the beach of Stardew Valley near his cabin. The developer update on Elliot describes him as:
“Elliott lives alone in a cabin on the beach. He is a writer who dreams of one day writing a magnificent novel. He is a sentimental “romantic” with a tendency to go off onto flowery, poetic tangents. When he can afford it, he enjoys a strong beverage at the Stardrop Saloon. Could a humble farmer such as yourself be the inspiration Elliott is looking for? There’s only one way to find out…”Developer Blog.
If you marry Elliot he will move to the farm and create a room in the farmhouse. This room is a large library where he will sometimes read. Outside the farmhouse he will create a small garden where he will read if the weather permits it.
Harvey is one of oldest bachelors in Stardew Valley. He runs the town medical clinic which is attached to the westside of Pierre’s. You will often find Harvey working in the clinic or upstairs in his room. The developer blog describes Harvey as:
“Harvey is the town doctor. He’s a little old for a bachelor, but he has a kind heart and a respected position in the community. He lives in a small apartment above the medical clinic, but spends most of his time working. You can sense a sadness about him, as if there’s something he’s not telling you…”Developer Blog.
If you romance and marry Harvey he will move to the farmhouse and set up a small medical research room. Outside he will make a small garden where he will go to read if the weather is good.
Sam lives in the blue house in the southwest corner of the town along the river. He is an avid musician who spends much of his time playing music. The developer blog describes Sam as:
“Sam is an outgoing, friendly guy who is brimming with youthful energy. He plays guitar and drums, and wants to start a band with Sebastian as soon as he has enough songs together. However, he does have a habit of starting ambitious projects and not finishing them. Sam is a little stressed about the impending return of his father, who has been away for years due to his line of work.”Developer Blog.
If you romance and marry Sam he will move into the farmhouse. Once moved in, Sam will set up a small music area inside the house as well as a half-pipe skateboard ramp outside. Sam will use the skateboard ramp if the weather is nice.
Sebastian is a bit of a recluse bachelor. He lives in the basement of Robin’s house to the north of town in the mountains. The developer describes Sebastian as:
“Sebastian is a rebellious loner who lives in his parents’ basement. He is Maru’s older half-brother, and feels like his sister gets all the attention and adoration, while he is left to rot in the dark. He tends to get deeply absorbed in computer games, comic books, and sci-fi novels, and will sometimes spend great lengths of time pursuing these hobbies alone in his room. He can be a bit unfriendly to people he doesn’t know. Could a charming new farmer cultivate the wasteland of his heart? Who knows?”Developer Blog.
If you marry Sebastian he will move into the farmhouse and set up a room which looks like his room at Robin’s house. Outside Sebastian will park his motorcycle which he will work on if the weather is nice.
The final bachelor in Stardew Valley is Shane. Shane lives at Marnie’s ranch but he spends most of his time working at the Jojamart. Shane suffers from depression and alcoholism. His romance story is actually really depressing. If you marry Shane he will move into the farmhouse where he will set up a room inside and a chicken coop outside.

Abigail is the daughter of Pierre and Caroline. She lives in the apartment above Pierre’s shop. The developer describes Abigail as:
“Abigail lives at the general store with her parents. She sometimes fights with her mom, who worries about Abigail’s “alternative lifestyle”. Her mom has the following to say: “I wish Abby would dress more appropriately and stop dyeing her hair blue. She has such a wonderful natural hair color, just like her grandmother did. Oh, and I wish she’d find some wholesome interests instead of this occult nonsense she’s into.” You might find Abigail alone in the graveyard, or maybe out in a rainstorm looking for frogs.”Developer Blog.
If you marry Abigail she will move to your farmhouse. Here she will set up a room in the house along with a small garden outside where she will practice her flute playing if the weather is nice.
Emily lives next to Sam at 2 Willow Lane with her sister Haley in the southwest area of the town. She spends a lot of her time at home or working at The Stardrop Saloon. Emily enjoys mysticism and different gems. If you marry Emily she will move into the farmhouse and create a room for herself and her parrot. Outside the farmhouse she will make a small crystal garden.
Haley lives with Emily at 2 Willow Lane. The developer describes Haley as:
“Being wealthy and popular throughout high school has made Haley a little conceited and self-centered. She has a tendency to judge people for superficial reasons. But is it too late for her to discover a deeper meaning to life? Is there a fun, open-minded young woman hidden within that candy-coated shell?”Developer Blog.
If you marry Haley she will move into your farmhouse where she will set up a room in your house. Outside the farmhouse she will set up a small garden where she will go and take pictures if the weather is nice.
Leah is an artists that lives in the house to the south of Marnie’s ranch. Most of the time Leah spends creating sculptures. The developer described Leah as:
“Leah lives alone in a small cabin just outside of town. She loves to spend time outside, foraging for a wild meal or simply enjoying the gifts of the season. She’s a talented artist with a large portfolio of work… yet she’s too nervous to display it to the public. Maybe you can give her a little confidence boost?”Developer Blog.
If you marry Leah she will move into the farmhouse. Inside the farmhouse Leah will create a small studio to work. Outside the farmhouse she will work on sculptures if the weather is nice enough.
Maru is the stepdaughter of Robin so she can be found in the house attached to Robin’s Workshop. Maru likes tinkering on things and has a number of projects in her bedroom. Here’s how the developer described Maru:
“Growing up with a carpenter and a scientist for parents, Maru acquired a passion for creating gadgets at a young age. When she isn’t in her room, fiddling with tools and machinery, she sometimes does odd jobs at the local clinic. Friendly, outgoing, and ambitious, Maru would be quite a lucky match for a lowly newcomer such as yourself… Can you win her heart, or will she slip through your fingers and disappear from your life forever?”Developer Blog.
If you marry Maru she will move to your farm. Once she’s moved in Maru will create her own little room with some gadgets in it. If the weather is nice enough Maru will work on her gadgets outside.
Penny lives in the trailer in Stardew Valley with Pam. She spends her time tutoring the children of Stardew Valley so she can often be found in the library. The developer described Penny as:
“Penny lives with her mom, Pam, in a little trailer by the river. While Pam is out carousing at the saloon, Penny quietly tends to her chores in the dim, stuffy room she is forced to call home. She is shy and modest, without any grand ambitions for life other than settling in and starting a family. She likes to cook (although her skills are questionable) and read books from the local library.”Developer Blog.
If you marry Penny she will move into your farmhouse. Here she will set up her own little library room. Outside she will read in a small garden area if the weather is nice enough.
