If there are official marriages I would really like to see no pros and cons but a huge consumption of money for the wedding.

That was where Akarra had it right. The wedding rings cost at least 3gc if I recall? There was no bonus of any kind.

I think maybe a special title or something would be enough. Or if the community brought wedding presents or something.

Akarra had it wrong in that you couldn't frickin' see the wedding bands. At least you should have visual indications to being married. Such as tabards in WoW. Cost you a gold piece and do nothing but look nice.

Yeah, wedding bands would be hard to notice anyway, but special clothes or what have you.

a way of getting over the creepiness of flirting with a guy posing as a girl would be same sex marriages, but then you'd need to have the married couples chat be randomly infused with words like "super" or "fabulous", stuff like that might be entertaining.

Marriage should be done IC if you ask me. Then it doesn't really matter what the other character's player's sex is. However, often they are much more OOC than that...

Doesn't really add atmosphere if you do it only 'cause you're in love OOC. And, might end like MH and Cait did. ^^

Marriage... I would agree with having no actual bonuses as well. A visual indication would be nice. It could be part of the character information as well, such as "You see Tyrael the Paladin, who is married to Aerilyn the Mage." (I laugh at my own joke....) Of course, it need not be information at that level(people have problems with everyone knowing character information), but maybe some indication... somewhere.
Make marriage pretty darn expensive I would say... and make Divorce even more so. Maybe even have penalties for divorce to dis-incline people to marry. Of course... this is all speculation, as marriage probably will not be an "official feature" for some time to come in Daria, if ever. The rings are probably good enough.

Sorry, he went out killing many large agressive beasts with me, then we stopped off at a tavern for a few drinks... Next thing we know... Sun up... *shrug*

I like the idea of marriage. There should be no bonuses though, because it could be abused. I like Tyrael's idea.

There should be a church in most towns then. If the couple would want it elsewhere then so be it, go keep it in icy mountains or deep forests, it doesn't really matter.

I think the presents they *should* get when married is enough as a bonus. I do think there should be something related to both of them. Else they could marry and never see each other again. Perhaps a letter system so they could write each other if they don't see each other much (timezones)? Wink

A ring could be set in a unique inventory slot only for that purpose. When the ring isn't worn then the player information doesn't say he/she is married to someone. A date for the marriage could be posted here in the forums, for everyone to know.
