What age do the parents live to?

By jess
01/12/2011
Hi I've only recently begun playing Virtual Families, my parents are in their mid fifties and their eldest has gone off to college. Just wondering if anyone knows how long these little people live for on average, do they simply die of old age or can an illness kill them? Do you have to wait for both parents to die before you can pick your next generation?

I've done some reading and answered my own question. For future reference to anyone else:

Adults will pass away in their 60's on their bed.
You then have 2 choices;
a). continue in the current game and try to uplift their spirits after suffering loss of loved one.
b). click on family tree link and choose next generation and begin a new family with one of yous adult children.

You can stop them from dying. When you open the family up, if you see someone lying on the bed, hit the space bar to pause the game (as long as their spirit hasn't yet appeared to wave goodbye). If you have the money, buy a stethoscope and while game is still paused use it on the dying person. If an illness is diagnosed, cure them. If nothing is wrong, then buy and use babyboost. Then unpause the game. This should save them. They will jump up on the bed and wave thanks to you. If fruit, vitamins, or an energy drink is available at the store, give it to them. Now at first the family will act as if they were dead and at first you won't be able to pick them up. their picture won't appear in details. but, if you give them the fruit or vitamins that usually puts their picture back. I did this not only with adults, but I had a ten yr old girl almost die and I saved her life.

WOW! I have been playing for months and never been able to save a dying person! The average age my people die is 58. No matter how healthy they are, they die. I had one live to age 68 and one died at 16. He had a cough, I treated it, he kept getting weaker and weaker-tried penicillin, vancomyacin, etc. nothing worked. Vitamins, fruit, nothing worked. One day he just died in the bed in the children's room! With families in the 8th generation that is the only time I have had a child die. ALSO the parents never "got over it." Usually when a parent dies, the family is depressed for a few hours, then gradually they become a "bit blue" and then happy and then elated. These parents had two other children and they wouldn't watch movies with them, work on their careers, or anything except bathe and eat. They stayed depressed until they died at 58 and they were like 45 when he died! Strange!

i tried that thing where you try to save them when there on the bed before there spirit appears to say bye. it didnt work for me, he died. i tried to use the stethescope on him, but it wasnt working, just like there was nobody there to use it on. 'Hubby' was a good 60 year old man:/ i miss him. lol.

It's okay. Usually the average human lives to their late 80's and early 90's. But she can live to a hundred something if she is healthy enough.

" Your virtual family members will be aging a year every two hours (real-time). They normally will pass away in their 60’s, occasionally in their late 50’s. That means you could be starting a new generation every 3 or 4 days.
As soon as one of the parents has died, you will be have the possibility to start a new generation from the family screen. If you don’t have any children, your game will stop right there.
You will be able to scroll through the children and learn more about them etc., as often as you like, so don’t be afraid to press the “try again” button. All the children will automatically be the around the same age as their parents when they moved in into the house. " - Source - Gamezebo

so wierd, my wife on my ipod virtual families was 66 and the husband's name is Flicker and he's 61. The wife died before Flicker, which is really wierd. The wierd thing is that the wife wasn't sick or anything. Another thing that's wierd: At 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday March 6, 2012 is that the same wife was still alive; her status said Elated. I came back five minutes later and she's dead! I thought she was going to be 70! Wierd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, thanks everyone for helping me awnser my questions. I have a man and he is 61, all of his bars are full and he has mastered his profession. His wife died ad all the children moved out. Can the people die from being alone in the house for a couple days? I just wanted to know how old they can get... So maybe I will have something to look forward to. He might be 78!! Thanks everyone

I have 2 virtual families. One is 68 year old and his wife is (i think) 84. It's wired because when they got married the wife was a "year" older than her husband now she is "2 years" younger than her husband.....

i have been thinking ... the husband and wife in vitrutual families when they die what will happen to their children? do they then have children? i have 6 children on that game and i was wondering what would happen, right now the 2 eldest daughters are 15/16 when their parents die what will happen to them and the other children? do the children grow older and get married? all very complex but does anyone know the answer?

If you want to get a family member out of a depression go to their detail screen and click the 'Upgrade me' right above their head. Purchase psychotherapy and they should be fine!

i just had my second family's wife die. i have always choosen new generation and one of the children, of your choice, takes over the house and money and the rest of them move out. is there any way to not do this and get all of the kids married or do u have to pick just one (by choosing new generation) and play with just the one? will the father that just lost his wife remarry? basically i want to know if NEW GENERATION is the only option to move forward in the game

So say if one parent dies and there's no children. The remaining parent gets remarried!! Yay!! This happened to my kristella and tone, I kept trying to make them have kids, but noo. Then tone died and boolo came!! But then kristella died but they still don't have kids! Then Camillo comes and boolo adopts him. Yay! So basically they can remarry.

If you want to move on to a new generation then just change the date on your ipod. If you want them to be able to try for a baby sooner, then move the time forward 30 minutes.

I have a little person ( mother ) who has just reached the age of 85. Idk how she is doing this but the husband died at 69. I got her psychotherapy after his death then she was fine. I always gave her perfect fruits from flea market and nothing but organic food. She also did a lot of gardening and focusing on career. All the other mothers in my other generations have had six kids. I had this mother only have 2.

05/12/2013
They can have a baby when the wife is not nursing or the baby you have is above the age of 3. Then you can have another baby. If you want twin give the husband and wife a baby boost and you should have twins. Hoped this helped!

What do you do if both parents die before the kid reaches adulthood?
By jess
05/14/2013
I have had both parents die while the kid was only 15. I went into the family tree like you would do to start a new generation and clicked on her. She appeared as the new head of the house and it aged to 22 years old.
By mystery game player
05/27/2013
No, you do not have to wait until both parents die to choose the next generation. My first generation mother just died, and now her thirty year old daughter owns the house. You should know that the other parents and siblings of the house are forced to move out whenever a new generation takes over the home. You do not see them again in the game.

They don't always nessecarily die at 60. They can last longer, but usually that's the age they live to in your first generation. The life span of your little people expands as does your family history.

They live to their 50s and 60's. You don't have to wait till both parents die. After the mom or dad the kids will become around their age and you get to pick from you kids that are now grown ups.

I agree the older the people the harder to have children. Since my second generation father passed which had low income as a caterer and mother (Asta ) was a low income fiction writer is 55 and very weak I don't want to leave the next-generation with a petty 734. The father was only 58.

My "parents" are both 57 and Masters of their jobs. They have two dogs, a puppy, a kitten, three kids (two are at college and one is in boarding school. He's adopted btw).

I have $84,340 :). It's my second gen., but I kept praising them and making them work. It's a gold mine!!

So now, when I get to my next generation I can afford both of the third gen. renovations and furniture for both rooms!
