Maybe it can have some plot-ideas too, like, extra cutscenes or events depending on your relationship status~ It can be cool if you'd end up with a wife / husband with children maybe.
While I'm both a lover of Harvest Moon and Pokemon, the idea of ending up with a spouse seems severely out of place. Think about it, time doesn't progress in Pokemon in the same fashion as Harvest Moon. People never age, regardless of whether or not you made certain decisions, unlike Harvest Moon. And, since you're suppose to be roughly 16 (Given we're sticking with the Black & White ages), the idea of marriage and having children not only seems a tad out there, but it would essentially take away from the principle of the game: To travel, collect Pokemon and battle. It seems a tad irresponsible to continue to do so when you have a spouse and a child

However, I like the idea of having a girlfriend/boyfriend in the game that would essentially be your Doubles battle partner. You could take them on dates and even train against them in order to improve their Pokemon (As well as earn needed Experience). You could even trade Pokemon with them so you can obtain even more powerful Pokemon! Your girlfriend/boyfriend would probably reside in the Paris-esque city of the game and can be asked, after a certain point, to accompany you to a specific location to battle and train.
