Wife dumps hubby after he went for virtual second wife!November 14th, 2008 - 2:28 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 14 (ANI): In a rather sordid instance of cyber life ruining real-life, a woman is divorcing her husband after she found his online avatar cheating on her in the virtual reality game Second Life!
Players of the game create online alter egos who live full lives, including having jobs, relationships and children.
David Pollards wife Amy caught his randy computer self having sex with other players busty two-dimensional hooker.
Shocked Amy walked out on him in tears after she came to know that her besotted husband had asked the creator of the busty virtual character, a woman from US, to be his second wife.
Amy, 28, who had wed David meeting him in a Yahoo chatroom five years ago, fumed after filing for divorce.
Its the ultimate betrayal. The solicitor wasnt at all surprised she said it was her second divorce case involving Second Life that week, The Sun quoted her as saying.
She said: He never did anything in real life. But I had my suspicions about what he was doing in Second Life.
In February, she caught the character having sex with the hooker and even hired an online detective to investigate.
Amy said: I went mad I was so hurt. Its cheating as far as Im concerned. We made up after he promised never to cheat on me again. But two months later I caught him cuddling a woman on a sofa in the game.
I ended up going off to his mum and dads in floods of tears. He confessed hed been talking to this woman player in America then said our marriage was over.
Amy, who has already divorced in Second Life, has now found a new man via the game World Of Warcraft.
She claimed David and the woman in the US had agreed to wed.
David, on the other hand said: I dont think I was really doing anything wrong. (ANI)
