    "Avatar" Affair Leads to Real-Life Divorce

    http://women.timesonline.co.uk/tol/l...cle5151126.ece

    Excerpts:

    A couple have divorced after the husband was caught having a “virtual affair” with a female character in an online game.

    David Pollard and Amy Taylor met in an online chat room in 2003 and married after discovering a shared love of the internet game Second Life.

    Ms Taylor, 28, filed for divorce on the ground of unreasonable behaviour after her husband admitted falling in love with the virtual female character. She discovered the affair after a rare break from her computer. When she returned from a nap she caught a glimpse of her husband's avatar in a compromising position on a sofa with a female avatar.

    Ms Taylor's suspicions were aroused in 2007 and she hired a Second Life private investigator. The virtual sleuth, called Markie MacDonald, caught Dave Barmy in flagrante and he apologised to his online and real world wives.

    According to the Times Online website where the story originated, that is what the couple really look like.

    This whole second life thing is beyond me. It seems that you would need a first life before you could have a second. These two seemed to hate their first lives.
