Ok, so I know this might sound a bit weird, so I'll give an example.
When I was younger I kind of treated my tamagotchis as a way to pass the time, and something to acheive goals with (getting perfect care characters, etc.). I would always marry my tamas off as soon as i could and only did the minimum to get the characters I wanted.
Now, I treat my tamagotchis as more of a real pet. I don't marry it off instantly, I get it the pet i think it would want, I renovate the house to suit the colour scheme/personality of my tama, I make sure it's got all tamotomo symbols and that everything is good before I even think of goint on to the next generation.
What about you guys??
