You know that 50% of all pixels marriages end on divorce.

Marriage also happens to be the leading cause of all divorce.

Sadly yes. A few years ago some kid in my guild asked me to attend his "wedding" in wow. It was ... weird.

Even more sad, they were no longer seen together after the event.

Deletion is cheaper than divorce, it cuts out the lawyers...

As I've been playing on Roleplayer servers mainly during my WOW career, I've been used to that kind of events. I've often beeing organising the wedding, and created a "typical" atmosphere for it. My favourite wedding had been without a dubt the Voodoo wedding (Troll). Was extremly fun to imagine a very mystical, a bit bloody and macho ceremony where the bride was prepared by old witches, and where the groom had to fight the tribe of his bride.
I've also assisted to a very well made dwarf wedding where the two married had to forge a chain between them.

In Everquest back in the day. I think the zone was one of the Karana's that comes off HIgh Pass Hold. It was near the waterfall there. Had to have someone on Hill Giant duty because they were heavy in the area. Nice scene though back then.

I've seen a few in LOTRO. I have to admit they make me feel a little uncomfortable.

@(Unverified) Before crying fail, it might behoove you to read back. That was about funerals, as mentioned in the article above. Not the same thing, you know.

@(Unverified) Go back and re-read the very first paragraph. If you click the link in the first sentence, you'll find the article you're thinking of.

I've been to a few "weddings" online in-game, Some weirder than others...ofc the obvious one is your picture above, the wedding of Keiran Thackeray to Gwen..a must for any Guild Wars players who've completed the War in Kryta quest chain and are doing the Hearts of the North quest chain. I've been to anniversaries in-game and also a wedding in a text based game (by far the weirdest) which required some serious imagination lol.

I did attend a wedding in wow.. it was billed as a serious affair where the couple really got married the day before.. Half way through the vows a party of five night elves crashers came running in with nothing on and danced in the front of everyone and crowded the bride.. shortly after that a horde raid interupted and killed most of the wedding guests.

I made a commitment that day to never attend one of those again.

I attended a really cool one in Ryzom. In fact, I have it on film somewhere (digs around.) It was really cool, and we had fireworks after. The couple (iirc) was married in real life, or got married shortly after. I love stuff like that. I'll never judge. These games are unique in the way they can be an actual social outlet for many people. :)

I attended an RP wedding in EQ2. It was actually a lot of fun. It brought the guild and other RPers out to socialize. I can see where it might be odd for non RP players though.

I attended one for two guildies in WoW, before TBC. They didn't know each other in real life, but did have an online relationship going. Not long after, neither of the pair were heard of again. By us, anyway.

Another one was in LotRO, which even had a staged event at the end where the bride was taken away by her secret lover. None of us knew about this, so it was a bit of a surprise.

Yes I did. In FFXI a real life couple got together for the in game ceremony. Was fun because they were married in real life. I can understand adding that feature becuase 'that is something characters would do' in a game. Yet I think its a bit odd.
