I’ve been playing King’s Bounty for a while now and have picked myself up a wife.
I was very surprised when she asked me to have a child, but since I did not want to upset her (luckily I don’t apply this game-logic in the real world) I went along with it.
So after a while I embraced a new virtual babe, which took up one of my wife’s equipment slots and gave me space for 8 additional scrolls in my spellbook – rather useless. This process repeated itself to produce an even worse offspring granting me +4 scrolls. That’s when I decided to stop having children.
Now from what I gathered from a good friend of mine who played quite a bit, children can actually give excellent bonuses so I’m just amazingly unlucky. He also said that the only way to start over is to replace my wife, but that the “divorce” would cost half my current gold.
The same friend told me that I should use up as much of my gold as possible to minimize my loss, but I don’t see anything sensible to buy with my ~200K gold.
Is there any other way to split up with my current wife in a less painful manner? Is there a point in the game where really expensive and worthwhile things show up and I should just manage until there?
I’m not beyond editing my save files to alleviate this issue, so if you know how to do that, I’m game.
Anyway, the answer:
SHIFT + ` clearwife

Your friend was correct about that being the only option in-game.
