PORTION OF THE ARTICLE

TOKYO - A 43-year-old Japanese piano teacher's sudden divorce from her online husband in a virtual game world made her so angry that she logged on and killed his digital persona, police said Thursday.

She used his identification and password to log onto popular interactive game "Maple Story" to carry out the virtual murder in mid-May, a police official in northern Sapporo City said on condition of anonymity, citing department policy.

The woman used login information she got from the 33-year-old office worker when their characters were happily married, and killed the character. The man complained to police when he discovered that his beloved online avatar was dead.

She was charged with illegal access onto a computer and manipulating electronic data, police said. If convicted, she could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000.

The woman was arrested Wednesday and was taken across the country, traveling 620 miles from her home in southern Miyazaki to be detained in Sappporo, where the man lives, the official said.

So I tried out that game last night, Maple Story... fucking gay. Why would you get married in such a shitty looking game? Lulz.

Well depends, if its solely online and never implied to take things into a physical sense, then its purpose is that to fullfill a void with a fake sense of belonging and personal attachment, that is lacking in ones physical life. Most of the time one party is in it for kicks (usually the male) and the other develops an attachment to the other (usually the female).

However there are people who do find their future spouse online, and end up getting together.

Take if for what its worth, this is all based on my limited experience in Psychology.
