Avatar marriage, affair, divorce: the definition of ‘get a life’

Posted by James McPherson on November 15, 2008

A British couple is apparently divorcing because the woman accused her husband–supposedly loyal in real life–of having an online affair after the couple had a glitzy Second Life wedding. According to CNN, the woman used on avatar detective to track her husband’s activities, and she is now “in a relationship” with someone she “met” playing World of Warcraft.

Oh, the games people play.
