LONDON, England (CNN) -- A British couple who married in a lavish Second Life wedding ceremony are to divorce after one of them had an alleged "affair" in the online world.

Second Life users can interact and form relationships with other players' avatars.

Second Life users can interact and form relationships with other players' avatars.

Amy Taylor, 28, said she had caught husband David Pollard, 40, having sex with an animated woman. The couple, who met in an Internet chatroom in 2003, are now separated.

"I went mad -- I was so hurt. I just couldn't believe what he'd done," Taylor told the Western Morning News. "It may have started online, but it existed entirely in the real world and it hurts just as much now it is over."

Second Life allows users to create alter egos known as "avatars" and interact with other players, forming relationships, holding down jobs and trading products and services for a virtual currency convertible into real life dollars. iReport.com: Share your stories from Second Life

Taylor said she had caught Pollard's avatar having sex with a virtual prostitute: "I looked at the computer screen and could see his character having sex with a female character. It's cheating as far as I'm concerned."

The couple's real-life wedding in 2005 was eclipsed by a fairy tale ceremony held within Second Life.

But Taylor told the Western Morning News she had subsequently hired an online private detective to track his activities: "He never did anything in real life, but I had my suspicions about what he was doing in Second Life."

Pollard admitted having an online relationship with a "girl in America" but denied wrongdoing. "We weren't even having cyber sex or anything like that, we were just chatting and hanging out together," he told the Western Morning News.

Taylor is now in a new relationship with a man she met in the online roleplaying game World of Warcraft.

Safer to stay in the woods killing boars.

In reality or Sedond Life? Cause in real life, boars are f@#king scary.

All things considered: Second Life.

If I want some bacon I'll trek on down to Cracker Barrel.

I could go for a BLT. Unfortunately, I dont have any bacon. Or lettuce. Or tomatoes. Maybe if I join Second Life, I can hook up with a cyber-skankdork who has the necessary supplies.

There's 2 lbs. of thick-cut pepper encrusted bacon here in the meat drawer.

A nice, crisp head of romaine and 3 beefsteak tomatoes are also on hand.

We are lacking proper bread to do the deed as to a BLT.

I mentioned this to the GF and I'm on for a run to the bakery (Bing's in Newark, DE) at dawn for a loaf of pumpernickel.

Do you have a bakery nearby?

Even a chain-store will bake their own sometimes.

The BJ's Club nearby bakes their own too.

Try doing it yourself, for that matter. Would that be practical?

There is one small bakery nearby, but their breads aren't particularly good, they do other thing better. We have a Breadsmith close enough, they're better than going to Wal-Mart or Price Cutter for breads, but a bit out of the way. I told someone we need a bread machine for a wedding gift, only to be coldly reminded that our wedding date hasn't been specified as anything other than sometime in the next decade.

A bread machine can be a little tricky, I prefer good bakery bread myself.

Great Idea! Methinks a second life is for those with no first life...

Can I join Second Life and just go around killing everyone? Cause that would be sweet. Or get Second Life aids and spread it to everyone?

Funny...we had a second life rep come and speak in my pop culture class yesterday. The girl I was sitting next to and I couldn't stop laughing at how ridiculous some of it was. As with many virtual reality online things such as this, people get way too absorbed and lose touch with reality. Sad really...though I can see some use in it otherwise. I have messed around in those virtual world things before like "There" which was actually pretty fun for a little while. I'm looking forward to PlayStation Home.

Mmmm..pepper bacon. There is a good local bakery less than a couple blocks away. And the local gourmet supermarket (AJs) is a mile away or so, they have great breads...I think we are going to get Thanksgiving dinner from there. For restaurant bacon, my favorite is still Original Pancake House... I think there is one of those out in Scottsdale, and there is one less than a mile from my place in Denver..

I tried playing around with Second Life, but got bored and deleted it after about a week. If I want to be hit on by creepy old men, I'll forego the furries, and just come to C&G. :D

I have never had thick-cut bacon before. I feel like I'm missing out, 'cause it looks so good... :drool:

Get a First Life.

:lol: Spot on, Drew, spot on.

It must be awkward for some cashiers to tell people their workplace.
