Hi there can we add a birth control sequence. Historically Romans do not control their birth due to diseases which may cause all children to die. Which is not reflected here, thus, its very expensive to have children.
For the wealthy Romans, because they have the money to hire doctors and medical care for their children, their children survive. But because of the high cost of education, many would restrict themselves until a child dies. Men are shown to avoid their wives and visit prostitutes or have lovers, which children born from the union can not inherit.
The game is very patriarchal even for Roman standards and they are a Patriarchy proudly. Daughters are completely ignored, which is not true for Romans who see their daughters as their heirs as well as their sons, and many Roman adopts their descendants or relatives through the female line to continue their dynasty.
And for the bachelor tax right. Roman Law state that the range is 25-60 for men, and 20-50 for women. However in the game, I get tax for character whose wife died and he is in his 60s. And the game start taxing the sons and daughters at 18 instead of 25 to 20. The tax is also never as the game which tax like 60-80% of the income.
