RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - Marriages are often fantasies and this one certain looks like it.

A law group says it helped perform the first “digital identity marriage” in the Metaverse. Ryan and Candace Hurley of Phoenix got married digitally in “Decentraland.”

The ceremony was performed by a Supreme Court Justice officiating and attended by witnesses and about two-thousand guests.

The law group says there’s no current legal framework for such a marriage and the binding nature may be a matter of contract. The law group made a “virtual premarital agreement” to create a marriage framework.
