Other gamers make a living in businesses created on MMORPGs. The French watchdog organization Familles de France filed an unsuccessful lawsuit against Linden Lab, the creator of the MMOPPG Second Life, opposing the adult content of the site.

It's like real life -- you can meet in a club or a comedy show."In 2007, however, Marc Mosel, 42, decided to combine elements of flat dating sites and online and virtual dating.

But some bemoan the short-lived nature of some virtual relationships.

One post on a Second Life forum complained: "My SL husband is cheating on me with a Bisexual Skunk Furry and is asking for a divorce. "While weddings on MMORPGs can be expensive, depending on their extravagance, it should be noted that divorces come cheap.
