Hello,
This problem has a lot of different reasons why it happens. It could be as easy as clearing your cache files, or trying a factory reset.

Delete the Cache Files
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,20732.msg401809.html#msg401809

Factory Reset
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,20732.msg401814.html#msg401814

When this has happened to me, I usually just back up my Sims 3 folder, and do a factory reset. Start a new game to test to make sure things run smoothly, and if so, copy my saves and other files and folders over.

Here's a few tips to try:

Game Crashes (Sims 3 has stopped working)

[FAQ] Game Crashes
http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Game-Crashes-CTD/td-p/656

A couple other helpful tips to try:

Turn Off Interactive Loading Screens
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,20732.msg401807.html#msg401807

Clear Family and Individual Inventories
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,20732.msg401810.html#msg401810

Turn Off Memories
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,20732.msg401805.html#msg401805

Try these tips, if you haven't already. Let us know if they work, if not we'll see if we can dig a little deeper. 

Hope this helps, and welcome to the forum!
