We know many of you form and maintain deep bonds and are in committed relationships with each other. We want you to have a way to celebrate those bonds. IMVU Marriage Package is the new perfect way for two Avatars in love to express their commitment to each other.

Are you and your love on IMVU ready to take the plunge and make your special relationship official?

With the Marriage Package, you can propose to your partner and plan the perfect wedding. Get married and have your profiles linked together with your new life status displayed proudly on both your profile cards. Send an official personalized announcement declaring your union to all your friends and family on IMVU. And soon, get ready to access a new “Our Room” in addition to the My Room feature in 3D Chat. As a couple, own, decorate and moderate this room and welcome your guests in your new home! You can make the shared home your public room or keep it for your private get togethers.

You can buy the Marriage Package (18+ users only) in our Credit Store starting today at an introductory discount of 50% off! Buy it now and reserve your home for the future with your partner.



What is included?

--The buyer gets a process to propose to his/her partner
--If the partner accepts, then it is official!
--They both get name change token (plus name registration if their names are not already registered)
--They both get to send a special wedding announcement to all their friends once
--They both get a special badge to display on their profile
--Both their profile cards will display "Married to AVATARNAME" status and will be linked to each other's. AVATARNAME will be the partner's name

The most important perk that will be launched soon and made available to anyone who has bought the package for the introductory price: Our Room!

Yes, you will be able to decorate a room together as partners with items from both your collections.

Staff answers

UPDATE: My sincere apologies for my earlier messaging. The Our Room feature will be an additional room available to couples who get the Marriage Package. This will be the home they shared and decorate together. The My Room feature will still be there for both partners. Thank you!

FAQs: - UPDATED AS OF 06/14/2013

1) Who can buy marriage package?

Anyone 18 years of age and older

2) Do you have to be age-verified or have Access Pass?

No

3) What if the person I propose to says no?


You still maintain the package and can use it if you find another partner in the future. You can ask the same person again as well unless they have blocked you or removed you as a friend.

4) What about divorce?

Divorce is free and is available for couples who have been married for at least one day. You can find the link to initiate a divorce on the marriage page (at the bottom of the page linked with the phrase "Not working out?") Either party will be able to initiate the divorce and get it without the other person's acknowledgement.

Once divorced, the Our Room feature will become inaccessible to both partners. If a shared room was previously made public then it will stay public under the name of the partner who had made it public. However the other partner's furniture items added to the room will be removed from that room.

5) How does Our Room work?

The feature is now live as of June 14th in client versions 487.24 and up. Please give it a test drive. It will be automatically available to people who have taken advantage of the Marriage Package. This will be in addition to the My Room feature and will be a shared space for you to have as a couple. You have to have bought the marriage package and completed all the steps to make your relationship official in order to access Our Room.

Partners will be able to decorate the room together using items from both their collections. This is the highlight of the feature and we know many of you have asked for a way to have shared space!

Once ready, the Our Room can be made public - the person who publishes it will be that room's owner. Both partners will continue to have the ability to decorate and moderate that room even after it has been made public.

Once you upgrade to client version 487.24 and above, and if you have completed the marriage package steps, you will see the new Our Room mode. Others will see this mode as well but it will be locked.



6) Can I be married to more than one person?

No. Also if someone has received a proposal and is still considering it, they may not be proposed to again till they make a decision.

7) Are there any restrictions on who can marry whom?

No. Only that both partners be 18 years or older. Also, you can only propose to someone who is on your friends list.

8 )Can I hide my "married" status?

Yes. You can do so from your Account Settings menu options

9) What if I am already married to someone on IMVU?

The marriage status badge, linked profiles and shared room features are only available to those who buy the marriage package. Your current Relations Status or Special Someone relationships are not taken into account.

10) When do I get the name change tokens?

Name change tokens will be delivered to each partner's account once the marriage package has been purchased by one partner, he/she has sent the proposal and the other person has accepted it.

11) Is the "Our Room" feature in addition to the "My Room" feature?


Yes.

12) Will the married couple share their inventories?

No. The inventories will stay separate and private in each account. Both partners however will be able to add any rooms and furniture from their own collections into the shared room.

You will not be able to see each other's inventories. However if one partner adds an item to the shared Our Room then the other partner will see it and will be able to decorated with it.

13) Do we have to change our names if get the marriage package?

No. You both get the Name Change Token when you buy the marriage package, propose and after the proposal is accepted. You however do not have to use it to change your names. It is your choice. The name change tokens are yours to keep if you get divorced.

14) Who will be the room owner if the Our Room is made public?

Whoever makes the room public from their account. They will be the room owner. It will take up a slot in their public room allowance (1 for all users, 10 for VIPs). Other partner will however have decorating and moderating privileges.

15) Does Our Room feature come with a room?

Yes. Our Room does come with a fully furnished room that is yours to use. You can of course change the room and/or furniture items by choosing any item in both your collections.

Simply use the Scene or Furniture tools in the bottom tool bar to switch rooms and/or furniture:



16) How do I make the shared room public?

Once you have set up your shared "Our Room", any or both partners can choose to make it a public room. To do so, go to the Chat Rooms mode and click on Manage to access the Manage my Chat Rooms function.

During creation of a new room, you will see the Clone from Our Room option. Furniture added by both partners will be in this room till the partners continue to be married. The room owner will be whoever makes the room public using one of their room slots.

This still does not answer my question of how we will be able to decorate our separate private rooms, or will this not even be an option?

Those were not done by IMVU. As far as I know they effect nothing. If you want the package you can buy it for the already established RP marriage.

I'm afraid someone didn't think this through. I'd love to share a room but I have no interest in losing the ability to decorate my own private rooms in exchange...

Does this mean in Our Room either partner can use any room in their inventory and and either partner can decorate it, then that configuration be used when cloning public rooms?

If so, then no worries on replacing My Room. If that is not how it will work then I echo the concerns presented.

A lot of us use the My Room feature to decorate our rooms before putting them up as public rooms. (and make alterations and updates in private then replace the public room with a new configuration so it isn't 'lost')

I am also wondering how the 'default' room setting would work in this case.

I do question if all regular usage scenarios were tested.

Otherwise I do hope this satisfies some people's desires, but I would have preferred a more neutral option like a 'decorator pass' or something.

Exactly. And many of us older users with AP have two public rooms and those with VIP have several. We might not want to share all of them with the "spouse" and we use the My Room feature for decorating before publishing the public room.

Again, I think someone didn't think this through...

Varsha already answered this. You keep the package until you find someone who do want to be your marriage partner.

You get a name change token (both). You have the option of not using them.

Was the price mentioned? (Regular not the 50% off)
