Leaderboard: Have you gotten married in an MMO?

    
61

TERA patched a wedding chapel into the lands of Arborea yesterday, and the occasion got me to wondering about holy matrimony in various other MMOs. I know RIFT makes a big deal of it, and if I remember correctly you can get hitched in one of the Final Fantasy titles. I got married in Star Wars: Galaxies once upon a time, but back then it wasn’t so much a system as it was a tiny entry on your avatar’s character page that was activated after your significant other equipped the proper wedding band.

Oh, and it was an excuse to trash the Massassi temple on Yavin IV with a bunch of rowdy roleplayers, too.

Anyway, what about MOP readers? Have you gotten married in an MMO, or is it one of those things that you roll your eyes at? Vote after the cut!

I did it in Rift for the achivement. A later server merge/transfer/booting triggered an auto-divorce thing which was the only way to get the final artifact in that set and thus another achivement :p

I’ve attended in game weddings ICly, and in fact one of them where my character was the maid-of-honour led to an OOC conversation with people that changed my MMO world completely for the better :)

I selected “maybe” because while I didn’t get married in City of Heroes, I did propose in Pocket D.

I don’t like the idea of marriage in real life. Why would I do it in a fantasy world, short of some kind of in-game perks? No thanks.

Sure did! SWG and our guild The Star League provided the means and fun to allow us to get hitched ingame with the ceremony, outfits and they even gave us mounts and the Cadillac of speeders. We had a dancing guild come as entertainment and afterwards, we partied like no other…such good times that no other game has been able to reproduce since.

I never married ingame, but I married a gamer I met in EQ1 and have been together 13 years now :D

Ironically, FFXIV just released a census for how many marriage ceremonies its had since they unlocked the feature 7 months ago:

Yes, in SWG… but it’s really just pointless in that game.
