At times, players within the IMVU universe choose to meet their newfound friends in real life, and in some instances, this can result in getting married.
Choosing to tie the knot in the IMVU universe is possible by opting to purchase the marriage package from your account settings after making the decision with your partner-to-be.
IMVU, founded in 2003, is one of the longest-lasting virtual online metaverses for communicating and meeting others.
With IMVU, users have the ability to create and customize their very own avatars, which can then be directed throughout the IMVU universe.
Once a user has registered and created their own unique avatar, they can enter the IMVU universe via a downloadable Windows application.
IMVU has millions of members and virtually unlimited locations and virtual rooms to visit, providing members with plenty of opportunities to get to know people from all around the globe.
A marriage in IMVU is a way for two partners to express how they feel about one another while showing off their love and adoration for the world to see.
Getting married in IMVU allows two profiles to link together, with a new status to showcase that your virtual avatars are now married publicly.
Before you can get married in IMVU, you will need to have a willing partner who is also willing to get married to your avatar.
Once you have a partner who also wants to get married on IMVU, you will need to purchase a Marriage Package from the official IMVU website itself.
The Marriage Package from IMVU includes the ability to update your profile, link your profile with your new partner, and additional features that are unavailable to anyone without the Marriage Package.
After purchasing the Marriage Package from IMVU, you can then begin sending out official announcements and planning your wedding event.
The IMVU Marriage Package permits your avatar the ability to propose to one other avatar of your choosing.
You will have the ability to create a marriage event that you can host once you have purchased the IMVU Wedding Package.
Some of the most notable perks of purchasing an IMVU Wedding Package include:
- Immediate access to marriage announcements and invites your family, friends, and IMVU contacts
- Linked couple profiles for both you and your significant other’s avatar
- Updated profile status showcasing that your avatar is getting married or is now married to your partner
- A complete digital marriage certificate to show off your marriage
- A marriage status badge that is exclusive to married IMVU couples
- A brand new fully-furnished room for your avatars
- A new “shared” room titled “Our Room” as you and your partner’s shared new avatar home
- Name change tokens (these become available once the avatar you propose to accepts your proposal in-game)
- Registration tokens (these become available once the avatar you propose to accepts your proposal in-game)
If you have wanted to build a virtual home with your partner on IMVU or if you want to show off that you are married, purchasing the Marriage Package from IMVU is a must.
“Our Room” is an exclusive feature that is available only to IMVU members who have purchased a Marriage Package and have accepted a marital avatar partner.
Once you get married to your IMVU partner, you will both gain access to your very own virtual room, titled, “Our Room”, which is designed just for the newly married couple.
Our Room provides the ability to build, decorate, and invite friends over to a shared virtual space in real-time.
Whether you want to remodel the kitchen, or your new avatar partner is adamant about overhauling the entire aesthetic of your space, you can easily do so by working together in your shared “Our Room” space after purchasing your IMVU Marriage Package and completing your proposal.
Yes. The user who purchased the Marriage Package will have the option to make their shared “Our Room” public with up to 10 other players.
No. In fact, customizing your profile’s privacy settings as well as your status is possible by directly accessing your Account Settings option within the main IMVU menu once you are logged in.
You will also receive 2 change tokens and 2 name registration tokens once you purchase the Marriage Package from IMVU.
A change token provides you with the ability to change the name of your avatar, which is often preferred by those who are recently married and interested in assuming their partner’s surname.
If you choose to change your username or character’s avatar name on IMVU, you will be required to use a change token.
There are two change tokens provided in the IMVU Marriage Package, one for each partner getting married.
If you want to change your official name on IMVU, you can also do so with one of the two registration tokens that are also provided in the IMVU Marriage Package.
A registration token differs from a change token as it allows you to change your official name, rather than just your avatar’s name or display name.
No. You do not need to change your avatar’s display name or your current name on IMVU once you are married, even after purchasing your Marriage Package.
However, if you choose to purchase a Marriage Package, you will still have access to two registration tokens as well as two name change tokens.
You will retain access to both your registration tokens as well as your name change tokens for as long as you have your IMVU account.
It is even possible to utilize your name change tokens and registration tokens even if you have separated and divorced your current partner avatar in IMVU.
In order to receive your name change tokens and your registration tokens from IMVU, the avatar you propose will need to accept your proposition.
You will not have access to any name change or registration tokens until the avatar you propose to accepts your proposal in-game.
No, you do not have to purchase a marriage package on IMVU to speak to your partner, spend time, or even roleplay getting married to one another’s avatar.
However, if you are interested in hosting an official wedding event in IMVU and you are also interested in the perks that the Marriage Package has to offer, you will be required to pay a one-time fee of $20.99 for your Marriage Package.
No. Only one avatar is required to purchase the Marriage Package in order to gain access to the benefits and to get married in-game.
Yes. It is possible for any character to get married in IMVU. Gender is not a factor in avatars getting married.
No. At this time, IMVU only allows one marriage per avatar. It is, however, possible to divorce your current marriage partner to marry another in IMVU.
Your current Marriage Package will be lost if you choose to divorce your current partner’s avatar.
No. The wedding certificate and status update you receive from purchasing the IMVU Marriage Package is not authentic and does not reflect your real life.
The wedding certificate provided by IMVU is digital and showcases your virtual partnership to other IMVU members and guests who may view your profile or visit your avatar in-game.
No. All of your current items and belongings will remain yours and yours alone.
Inventories of avatars are not shared, even with married partners after receiving a Marriage Package and a marriage certificate.
It is possible to still contribute decor, furniture, and other belongings to your shared space using the “Our Room” feature for married couples on IMVU.
If you have purchased a Marriage Package in IMVU and proposed to an avatar who declines, you will still keep your Marriage Package perks.
This means, even if the avatar you propose to does not want to get married to you, it is still possible to use your proposal on another avatar.
Once an avatar accepts your proposal, however, you will no longer have the ability to propose to anyone else.
And, if you choose to remove the marriage, you will need to purchase an additional Marriage Package for any perks to remain active in your account again.
If you submit a proposal to another avatar and have yet to receive an immediate response, you may have second thoughts.
Maybe you sent your proposal to the wrong avatar entirely.
Either way, if you change your mind after submitting a proposal to another avatar in the IMVU universe, you will need to submit a help desk ticket to IMVU’s customer support.
There is no method of retracting a proposal in-game.
In order to get married in IMVU, the registered user must be at least 18 years of age.
Marriage Packages are also only displayed in public profiles to members who are listed as 18 years or older.
Unfortunately, not all partnerships work out, even in the virtual metaverse of IMVU.
If you choose to leave your partner, block them, or even unfriend them, you will lose your Marriage Package.
No. The “Our Room” feature is removed once a divorce is initiated and accepted.
No. If you choose to get a divorce, all of your current perks and Marriage Package benefits will be revoked (aside from your name change tokens as well as your registration tokens).
If you choose to remarry the same avatar again in the future, you will be required to purchase another Marriage Package again.
All of the perks that you received with your original Marriage Package will also be removed from your account if you are no longer committed to your original IMVU marriage partner.
