Do you ever imaged that you would meet someone in your favorite MMORPG someday, getting to know each other, falling in love with him/her and then making a marriage proposal? Over the past weekend, all these come true in Trion Worlds's hit MMO Rift. Two players, Hasek and Mischka, got engaged in-game and then completed their mock weddings through the help of one of Trion's GMs who plays the role of a priest.

Video: http://news.mmosite.com/content/201...anaged_to_make_with_the_help_from_trion.shtml
Congrats to Hasek and Mischka! And did you guys love someone in game?

Um... this is old news innit? And the story's longer.
They got married, the woman came home and found the guy flirting online in game or something so they got divorced? Can't remember.

More often than not, the one you fall in love with (most likely when you're a guy) is another who is a GIRL (Guy In Real Life), and the 'romance' turns out to be a tragedy.

Haha well Rift caught on to WoW I guess? AFAIK countless amount of couples either meet online or play WoW together..

Which couples? You know.. the ones who are more likely to decide to leave their baby in the bath alone while they go raid. :shadedshu

I agree. I met my girl through my sister and we both play WoW but my son comes before anything else.

As more immersive long-distance communication and virtual realities evolve and attract more users, this type of thing will become more common. Judging the movement as a whole to be some fallacious defection from superior traditional ways would just be another form of neo-Luddism and ignore the lack of any one universally traditional method of relationship-building in human history.

It will help nobody if we allow ourselves to make baseless assumptions and judge specific choices and lifestyles like this without much specific information or appreciation for the beauty and benefits of the heterogeneous nature that defines human culture and humanity itself. If you don't agree with their lifestyle, you can just ignore it—or better yet, observe if you can, objectively, as technology allows us to experiment with human relations.

How will you react to the first human/AI marriage?

My older brother's wife he met her online (not WoW) and now that she's moved in they play WoW together to this day but are still able to maintain a responsible living. And I know many people IRL that are the same too so I am not trying to put everyone in the same category. I am mainly referring to those who are so addicted that they neglect their IRL treasures.
