I've remade the Family aspiration from The Sims 2. The original aspiration had 6 levels, but due to limitations the first level was cut and the last became the reward trait. When creating each level I pulled from the name and the original aspiration's wants and lifetime wants. The final product was an aspiration that functions a bit like the Soulmate Aspiration with a focus on family.

The aspiration does give some whims. They are basic things relating to itself, such as Read to a Child, Help a Child or Teen with Homework, Try for Baby, etc.

Shining Example:
*Have a Romantic Interest
*Have First Kiss
*Have a Boyfriend or Girlfriend
*Become an Adult

Role Model:
*Have Sim Get Engaged
*Have Sim Get Married
*Become a Parent
*Interact with Baby (10 times)

Family Rock:
*Teach Things to Toddler (10 times)
*Have a Toddler Reach Level 3 or 5 in a Skill
*Read to a Child for 2 Total Hours
*Help a Child with Homework 3 Times

*Have a Total of 10 Children or Grandchildren
*Become Good Friends with 4 Children or Grandchildren
*Give 20 Hugs to Others
*Max a Domestic Still (Cooking, Baking, Gardening, or Parenting)

Town Father/Mother Trait:
With this trait, your Sim will get large boosts in the following skills: Cooking, Baking, Gardening, Parenting, and Knitting. A moderate boost in: Gourmet Cooking, Flower Arranging, Photography, and Fishing. And a small boost for Charisma, Handiness, and Mixology. Your Sim will also get a large boost in the Babysitting career and a moderate boost in Gardener and Culinary.

The Sim's autonomy will also be more focused on family activities and will socialize with younger Sims more often, they also build friendship and romance faster. They also will have a fertility boost, but this requires Outdoor Retreat.

The trait triggers 2 buffs for Elders. The "Long and Happy Life" buff is a Happy buff that occasionally appears and will give a boost in Knitting, Gardening, and Cooking along with a boost in the Babysitting career. The 2nd buff is a Playful buff called "Ah, Kids" which will slow the Fun need decay.

Since this is not an override, there shouldn't be conflicting with any mods.
