Romance Options in Fire Emblem Fates

This information was submitted via email (two separate people). We have included the links we were provided, but if you have additional details please let us know.

In Fire Emblem Fates, players can make a male or female avatar. There are two NPCs available for romance options by either gender: Niles and Rhajat.

According to this site, marrying either with a same-sex avatar can lead the player to permanently lose out on one or two children. Also Rhajat is not automatically unlocked in the game and hence is missable.
