Wedding bells are ringing, and we’ve now made it easier than ever to commit to that special someone! You’ll soon get to experience the thrill of getting married (and maybe even divorced) in RIFT.

Feature still under development. Currently available on the Public Test Server.
Will be released with patch 1.7
Rift: ******* Wedding Preview



What do you guys think of this new feature?
What do you think of the background music at the wedding end? (Music in the end of the video)

(Yes... Same *** marriage is allowed! )

I like the idea. I like that they will let anyone marry, including same gender.

I have some questions:

1. Shared wealth. Hmmm...so whatever I earn my spouse gets 1/2 of??

2. Will we get buffs/bonuses from being married?

3. Is the reception visual only or can you "eat" the cake? If so, does it give some sort of buff?

4. How much does the marriage cost to have the ceremony done?

I like the music and I think overall its not a bad ceremony. Not too long but not too short. I definitely think there should be a divorce type feature or that it is a contract of some kind that lasts 30 days and then needs renewed.

Shared Wealth? What's a divorce cost?

Would be awesome with Shared Wealth.. Then after you get married you can get a divorce and take half of the cash! :o

So in real life terms... 1p gets you the justice of peace wedding and 5p gets you a way-too-expensive wedding blowout? Smiley: grin Or do you end up paying 6p regardless?

After reading the article about the world record they want to set I started pondering who I could convince to marry me on there to participate. Maybe knowing more than one or two people would be a good start? Smiley: lol

I discovered that yes, you can get divorced! Here's our Weddings page, we'd love your contributions: http://rift.zam.com/wiki/Weddings_(Rift)

They're trying to set a world record on Valentine's day, btw: http://rift.zam.com/story.html?story=28842

So this is new on the pts. Wedding garb is 10 plat. It is a chest piece and automatically covers up the pants and boots in your wardrobe tab. I reported a bug about the hands not being covered automatically.

There is also a very cool new thing on the ward drobe tab to uncheck or check what you want to be viewed. So instead of having to remove something from your warddrobe tab to your bag you can now keep it there.

Also there is a boquest that cost 5 plat. It is equipable as a one handed weapon. Just some flowers lol..I could not preview the female wedding dress.

The world record will be happening today starting at 9am PST! Who all is going to participate? Smiley: grin

http://forums.riftgame.com/rift-general-discussions/general-discussion/299375-valentines-day-event-share-love-set-guiness-world-record.html

Some things Elrar mentions:
* You don't have to have a ceremony done if you don't want to, just getting the paperwork is enough.
* The title reward will be account-wide but the world record will be based off of individual characters, not accounts. Meaning you can contribute to the world record multiple times if you get your alts married as well.

I bet if they had Guinness stick around for tomorrow too they'd set another world record in divorces. Smiley: lol
