A Letter From The Man Who Married A Video Game

Jill Harness

By now, you have probably already heard about the Japanese man who married his virtual girlfriend from the Nintendo DS game Love Plus at a Make: Japan meetup. Because he is such an active member of the Nico Nico Douga community, he had the ceremony broadcast online, where it was picked up by Boing Boing.

The man has now responded to the coverage by sending a letter and some photos from his honeymoon to the popular blog. A short bit of the letter is below, but the photos and full letter on the site are really worth a read.

"Now that the ceremony is over, I feel like I've been able to achieve a major milestone in my life. Some people have expressed doubts about my actions, but at the end of the day, this is really just about us as husband and wife. As long as the two of us can go on to create a happy household, I'm sure any misgivings about us will be resolved."
