Waifus and Husbandos is big business

It always amuses me to see mainstream discussion on otaku culture. This one is from Forbes. Com and talks about people falling in love and spending lots of money on cartoon characters http://www.forbes.com/sites/laurenorsin ... haracters/

I'll settle for it not being any more of a hatchet job than it could help. I still believe there will come a time when "not pair bonded to another person" will be an acceptable option, but it's going to be quite a while after that before crushing on an anime character is as respectable as crushing on a pop star.
