IIRC, Awakening and Fates let you marry every single opposite-sex character. Fates had one same-sex option for each gender (Awakening had none).
I mean, even in Visual Novels it's "unrealistic" for all those five girls to be interested in the main character, who usually is just an average dude. It's all because of fanservice, because that's one of the main reasons people play those games (I'm talking specifically about dating sims and that sort of VNs). People play games for escapism too, so I don't think they need to be "realistic" in that regard, especially in this genre.
Fire Emblem is a weird case because a few games ago there was none of this dating stuff, but it's been a big feature lately.
