I prefer Ivan, I married him on my first save for a couple of reasons instead of Amir.
1.) He is really easy to court
2.) Waiting for Amir is boring
3.) I like Ivans personality better
4.) He looks so cute
5.) I wanted to give him a life cause it seemed he was so focused on Dirk he had very little social life. I wanted to open his eyes, and let Dirk have some freedom and fend for himself
6.) I dislike Amirs hair
Sorry about the long list
