How have I used a computer to help keep romance alive in my marriage? Actually, there are two computers involved.

It started about a year and a half ago. My husband has always been an avid video game fan. Well, he heard about this game called Ultima Online. It’s an online multiplayer role playing game, set in medieval times. When he mentioned buying it, I was afraid he’d always be playing. Well, I was right. What I didn’t expect was that I’d become addicted to the game as well. This virtual world was so fascinating and complex. It came to be that we were fighting over the computer at night so that we could play. This is how our second computer came to be.

We now play this game together, sitting side by side while our characters strive to uphold honor in the virtual world. Our characters are married and wear wedding rings in the game, live in a home together, hunt, and help others.

Playing this game together with my husband has been a wonderful experience and has kept us close, having fun together. It has been well worth the money we spent on our second computer. Now my husband wants faster computers though. =)
