Lucky number 13

I let yesterday slip by without mentioning that April 13 was six months to the day since Patrice and I said our vows to each other. For those of you who are keeping track, that is. Married on Friday the 13th, and six month later, another Friday the 13th! No bad luck here. We still love each other, still like each other, still love having sex with each other, and generally feel pretty fortunate.

We keep learning about what a Second Life-only relationship means. A lot of people seem to have trouble making such relationships last. In many cases, it might be because they're not that interested in such a thing, and there's no shame in that. After all, there are so many things to do in SL, and most don't require a partner.

I have to admit, having an in-world-only relationship is kind of a weird concept. It's not something you could easily explain to friends and family, and you can explain it to your spouse only if said spouse is unusually enlightened. But our relationship is precious to us, brings us a great deal of joy, and is something from which we continue to gain knowledge of ourselves and each other. It still makes sense to us.

Happy belated six months, Patrice! And hats off to any other SL-only couples who have made it this far or farther.

Oh, and don't forget to check out PixelPulse Magazine! One big article and one small one so far. I'm really enjoying the gig and enjoying working with Cheri and Lienna.
