Rose Law Group implements first metaverse marriage

By Daniela Kirova | Invezz

Ryan and Candice Hurley from Phoenix, Arizona got married with their digital identities this weekend in what was the first metaverse marriage. Decentraland (MANA/USD) hosted the wedding ceremony, which was attended by witnesses, a Supreme Court Justice officiant, and 2,000 guests.

Ceremony took place on Rose Law Group’s estate on Decentraland

The couple hired Rose Law Group to settle the legal formalities. Jordan Rose, the group’s founder and president, told Cointelegraph:

“Because the metaverse is still in its infancy, we have developed the legal paradigm for a legally recognized marriage. There currently is no legal framework for marriage in the Metaverse, so whether or not it will be legally binding is more a question of contract.”

The group created a “meta-marriage framework” by adding a “Virtual Premarital Agreement,” according to which the couple’s virtual identities were recorded on the blockchain.

Rose added:

We see the future of the metaverse as being truly decentralized and existing almost completely on the blockchain, so the future of marriage in the metaverse will not need to have a record of their marriage in the real world.
