How to Marry Martin in Rune Factory 5
Like any other character, you have to go through the character’s romance stories by triggering them. These are romantic events that are needed to be completed before you can confess to the character.
Martin has THREE romance stories that need to be completed before you can go on special dates and confess to him. These are:
- Martin’s Romance Story Sub-Event #2

After that, you will be able to confess to Martin at Friendship Level 7. He will ask you to meet at Lake Melody at 10 am to respond to your confession. You will now be able to go on three dates and participate in the final confession event where he will say, “I do.”

- Have met everyone in town.
- Own a double bed.
- Have an engagement ring unlocked.
