Wedding in Rift
No one can deny that love is a priceless treasure in our world, but a wedding ceremony is of a price, and sometimes it costs a lot. In MMO world, wedding system is relatively common among the weirdness a MMO community can offer, and you will be familiar with it if you are an old fogey like me. Anyway, it seems good news to those who want to take their virtual relationship to the next level. Many MMOs support in-game marriage. Take Rift as an example; let's look into the in-game marriage system and how much it will cost you.
In Rift, players are able to get married since patch 1.7. To hold a wedding ceremony, you need Wedding Coordinators. For Defiants, this will be Quchi Bora on the bottom floor of Orphiel's Spire. Guardians will find their Coordinator, Lada Freen, towards the back of Mariel-Taun's Village. Coordinators sell a Wedding Planner for ten gold, a book with extensive instructions on in-game matrimony and the wedding instances (such as how to invite up to 200 guests). A Marriage Contract is also available for one plat.
Marriage Ceremony is always filled with happiness. With a marriage ceremony instance from the marriage coordinator for five plats, you can enter it by right-clicking the ceremony item. Your love and you must speak to the coordinators to designate which will be the applicant of the Sun and the Moon, and then the official can be spoken to at the altar to begin the wedding. When it comes time to give your vows, one of you must use your Marriage Contract on the other to ask if he or she wants to be married. Using the /kiss emote on each other will then conclude the ceremony. All players in attendance will get the Wedding Witness achievement, including the newlywed couple! The couple will also receive a Gold Wedding Ring each.
What's more, there is a reception area with cake, a feast and wedding gifts after ceremony. All players inside the ceremony instance can interact with these items. However, the ceremony instance is completely optional. You can just use the Marriage Contract on your love. Obviously, you will spend several plats (one of the currencies in Rift, more expensive then gold) in marrying your love in Rift.
Where there is marriage, there is divorce. No one would like to see divorce, but it happens. In Rift, you need to purchase divorce papers for twenty gold from the wedding coordinators.
It is easy to find out Wedding Ceremony costs in MMOs; while some expensive, and some are cheap. But cost seems to be nothing if we can find a good company in MMOs, so it is with our real world.
