Couples that Raid Together Stay Together!

Over at, I found one of the most adorable and sweet posts I’ve ever seen in my life: Breakfast Topic: Things my wife and I have done in WoW – Matthew Rossi, one of my favorite authors at, outlines how it was actually his wife that introduced him to (which was WoW Insider at the time) and that he plays WoW with.

I can echo the sentiment – the lovely lady I’m seeing also plays WoW, and while we used to play on the same server, she left for a more interesting place for the way she plays and I hung around mostly because I liked the raiding I was doing at the time. Both of us have been away from the game for a while, but it’s hard to imagine that she got started in the game when I had just signed up for an account back in the vanilla days and I bought her a copy for Valentine’s Day of all days, because she really wanted to play it.

Between Rossi and I, we’re proof positive that couples that raid together stay together – that is to say, if you share interests and likes and dislikes with your partner, you’re likely to stick together through the hard times, even if it doesn’t always seem so.

So what about you? Does your significant other play WoW? Do you think they ever would, or would you try to get them into the game? Let us know in the comments!

    My other and I both play WoW. I actually played first (as well) while he was still tooling around in Everquest. When I started school, he started WoW. When all of my friends left my original server I transferred my remaining characters over to his, and we’ve been playing together ever since. He’s much more fanatical about having 80’s and doing raids and I’m more of the nearly-impossible-achievement whore. No worries.

    I think it definitely gives us something in common and an opportunity to group up in a bunch of different combinations. It’s fun. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

    Isn’t it a sweet story? It’s funny, my other and I both play World of Warcraft too – we used to play on the same server, and even though the game took us to different servers, it’s never taken us away from each other.

    Although it was fun to be able to proudly say that we did raid together at one point. Maybe we will again, I could always roll a DK on her server….
