No one has more experience with going back in time to keep someone alive than a Fire Emblem player.

For the sake of full disclosure, this is the most beautiful news I've seen all day today. I've been a committed fan to both Fire Emblem and XCOM since I was a lil rugrat catching that impressively long, epic Sacred Stones epilogue while the rest of the fam was doing things like eating dinner together.

I only ever dreamt we'd wake up in a world one day where a game might merge favorable elements from each differing game. This game is it, man, and all thanks to mods. The description reads:

“This mod puts a dash of Fire Emblem into your XCOM, leveraging a ‘squadmate score’ system to give small buffs for squads that trust in each other.”

The upcoming game Fire Emblem Fates (launching June 25 in Japan and in 2016 in NA/EU) will feature same sex marriage gameplay.  In a statement to Polygon, Nintendo confirmed, "We believe that our gameplay experiences should reflect the diversity of the communities in which we operate and, at the same time, we will always design the game specifications of each title by considering a variety of factors, such as the game's scenario and the nature of the game play. In the end of course, the game should be fun to play. We feel that Fire Emblem Fates is indeed enjoyable to play and we hope fans like the game."

If you want to pursue a relationship between two male characters, you'll need to purchase the Conquest version of the game, while players seeking a marriage between two women will find it in the Birthright version.  Both love interest characters are present in a third DLC storyline.
