Woman Divorces Husband Over 'Second Life' Tryst

UK Woman Divorces Husband Over 'Second Life' Tryst
Another day, another marriage ruined by the Internet. Not surprisingly, the online virtual world 'Second Life,' in particula,r seems to be destroying the holy bond of matrimony every chance it gets.

We can add the tale of UK couple John and Lisa Best to the list of reports of 'Second Life' infidelity leading to divorce. The mindbogglingly-careless John was laying in bed with his wife when he was caught having an online dalliance as his avatar, Troy Hammerthal. In case the name weren't enough of an obvious clue, then this next bit should do the trick: Turns out his virtual tryst was with another man.

Lisa awoke and quietly observed John on his laptop for a few moments before confronting him about the "gay dungeon romps." John, of course, immediately slammed his laptop shut and later defended himself saying that he was doing it, "for a laugh," and denied being gay.

Regardless, his wife was having none of it and left him the next day.

We have one question though: Why is it that all of these stories of divorce thanks to 'Second Life' seem to come from the UK? [From: Asylum]
