EQ2 and Virtual Marriage

So, one has to ask, why on earth would you get married in a game? You get none of the benefits! Your virtual husband can't take out the trash, or cook outdoors, or kill the big, fist-sized, woman eating spider that just crawled across my wall. * shudders * Ugh. One moment while I find a shoe.
