This is not the First One
The new phenomenon of virtual marriage is the result of the Covid-19 pandemic, when many people around the globe were locked down and Zoom-based relationships became the norm.
Although the NFL star may be the first to upload his vows to the blockchain, his wife and future bride aren’t the only ones who have done so.
An American couple got married in the metaverse last September. A real-life couple got married simultaneously in a metaverse with their avatars. They also walked down the aisle together and were kissed at end of ceremony.
Both of them worked for a virtual company. They chose to do a hybrid marriage model because they could celebrate with their friends who couldn’t attend in person. The couple shared their virtual guests with them and they even danced at the afterparty.
An older couple held a metaverse marriage 14 years after the legal, real-live union. “I am always fascinated by new and exciting things and have kept up with the emerging technologies around blockchain. I suggested to my wife that this would be a fun way to both renew our existing vows and extend our marriage to a multiverse that would last forever, ”commented the metaverse groom.
Virtual weddings are fun, and can bring people closer. However, in real life they’re not legally binding.
