Virtual Affair, Real Divorce


Have you heard of the video game Second Life?  It’s a virtual world where people can essentially reinvent themselves.  Users create their own image (called an avatar), carry on relationships, and even spend and make money.  As I understand it, it takes real money to get fake money (Second Life has to find revenue somewhere).  Then they spend the fake money on fake property, fake food, and anything else fake that fake people are selling.  Got it?  I don’t get it.  Anyway, a woman caught her husband’s avatar having sex with another woman’s avatar in Second Life and filed for divorce.  What’s happened to affairs?  I guess the days of secretaries and pool boys are gone.  Read the story here.
