Marriage Requirements

Dirk does not have flower events that need to be triggered in order to marry him. His flowers are not colored, and there are extra requirements that need to be completed in order to marry him. The player must fix the tunnel between the towns, go on a date with him 50 times, give him at least 80 gifts with one of them being Cream Croquette (at least once). Upon completing all of the basic marriage requirements, the player can give Dirk the blue feather to propose. He also does not have a reverse proposal.

After marriage, Dirk normally will be home at 6:30 AM until he delivers letters at 8:00 PM. He stays at the player's home on Sunday and stormy or full-rainy days.
