Weddings in MMOs always feel like content aimed directly at me. However many side benefits might exist, weddings are fundamentally roleplaying tools, ways for people to mark themselves as bound together in a virtual space that serves no purpose beyond character establishment. So even if I weren't planning on taking part in the marriage ceremony in Final Fantasy XIV
, I'd be happy it existed for that reason alone.
Of course, since my actual real-life wedding was objectively the best day of my life and
the best possible wedding, there's no way that the Eternal Bond setup could quite match that. But for roleplaying purposes, my character was
engaged, so I was still looking forward to it. All that's left is to take part in the actual ceremony, but there's a lot of stuff to be looked at about how it's handled thus far and what's praiseworthy or just plain baffling in the setup stages.
