Before she is married, Candace lives with her family at Sonata Tailoring. She helps out a little with the shop, but she doesn't have much business sense. On days with fair weather, she spends her spare time walking around Harmonica Town and visiting Choral Clinic. However, she stays home when it's stormy. She goes to church every Sunday, regardless of the weather.

If the player marries Candace, she will move into the player's home. She'll spend her afternoons visiting the Choral Clinic. On Sundays, she returns to Sonata Tailoring to visit her family.

If Candace marries Julius, she will move into his house. So long as the weather is nice, she spends her days strolling in the fields around her new home. However, she still returns to Sonata Tailoring to visit her family on Thursdays.

Once she is married, regardless to whom, she stays home in stormy weather.

Five Hearts (Male Player) "Um... I'm happy that I was able to see you again today. I'm sad on the days I can't see you..."
