Will Virtual Weddings Replace Real Weddings?
In a virtual world like Second Life or Maple Story, brides and grooms can get married without the hassles of a real wedding. No buying groomsmen gifts, renting tuxes, or figuring out the seating arrangements. No meddling in-laws or obnoxious vendors.
But grooms miss out on the open bar and cake. And you're not legally married on Second Life or Maple Story. The verdict is in: a real woman beats an avatar any day.
