On marriage


Just a short note on marriage, RPing of marriage and whether or not you need to have a GM present.

Q: My character and another player's character want to get married, is that possible?
A: Yes it is.

Q: Do we need to have GM permission?
A: No, you don't.

Q: Do we need to have GM presence during our marriage ceremony?
A: No, you don't. Although we recommend you keep logs. We do ask you to inform us so that we can add to the character profiling thread on the GM forums that certain people are married to others. Else we won't know.

Q: Do we need to have our marriage ceremony conducted in game?
A: No, you don't. Although we think it's a lot nicer of course, because then guests can attend for example.

Q: Can we ask a GM to decorate an area for our wedding?
A: Yes you can. Details and specifics would then need discussing with the GM.

Q: Do we need to have a priest, law official or other official authority present?
A: After some discussion, we decided it's not mandatory. Reasoning here is that in the real world, many places had (and some places still do) have "common law" marriages which requires no ceremony or officiating of any kind; it's just that the  pair lived together as a married couple for some set amount of time.

Q: What about last name changes?
A: That's possible, but then we'd need a request from both players to confirm the marriage is there, and a log would be nice.

If there's more questions, please post them here.
