  So, a man in Korea has reportedly married his Fate Testarossa dakimakura.

Looks, guys, this is important and I have to address it: it is troublesome and outright dangerous to marry your hug pillows. I know you love them dearly, and that they're cute, sweet, and never say no, but I really want you to think carefully before you propose. Consider:

 They're cute...
 They're cute...
1. Your dakimakura will not help out around the house. All cooking, cleaning, earning of money, paying of bills, care for the children (the cute little couch pillows) will fall to you. Your dakimakura will spend most of the time in bed, unless you drag it out to play. You will also have to bathe her-- this may not be a downside to some of you, who will enjoy it, but it may be a hassle to others.

2. Dakimakura will never voice any unhappiness. You could be doing something that makes your hug pillow miserable but it will NEVER tell you so. Do you really want a relationship based on one member's unwillingness to disagree with you? Counseling will also never help. You'll do all the talking.

3. You cannot protect yourself from the greed of a dakimakura waifu. By this I mean, your hug pillow can't sign a prenuptial agreement. It has no hands.

 ...But they're hard to talk to.
 ...But they're hard to talk to.
  4. A dakimakura has no sex drive. It will never say no, but it will never be the aggressor and approach you for a little some'n some'n. As such you may find your sex life eventually loses its spark and possibly even fades out.

5. You cannot divorce a dakimakura easily. Similar to the above, your hug pillow can't sign divorce papers, which means you'd have to go through the much longer and more painful process of a contested divorce, in court.

I hope this appropriately cautions you from making an honest pillow out of your dakimakura. I applaud your devotion, but you need to do what's right...foryou.

When it's a fictional character, it's a pretty easy decision, (you don't marry fictional characters). But what if it was a dakimakura of you, Gia? Then I really wouldn't know what to do.  ;-)

I don't know. They names of some pillows are misleading. There is a type of pillow called a "husband pillow". Why not a "wife pillow" lol
 
One thing I never understood about these pillows. Is the image printed on the actually pillow, or are they slip covers you can take on and off.

How would the pillow sign the marriage papers? How does that even work over there? Also, with the exception of #2, wouldn't that be exactly like having a bad wife? I imagine that , again with the exception of #2 and the "hands" thing, that is a similar situation to a number of people's marriages to real people. Maybe a lot of people would find this to be an improvement, if comedians and sitcoms are to be believed.

@oishi_47: First person to get a video of himself fighting with a silent dakimakura on that new "The Marriage Ref" show gets 5,000 points on the site from me. 
 
Seriously.

I think there are both kinds. 
 
i like my body pillow, but  i have never seen the draw of printing a half naked girl on it. Though, even creepier is printing them on your sheets and everything else...

I say this is a desperate cry for attention from than man, but I'm starting to wonder two things:
 Is the pillow the adult version of Fate or the loli version of Fate?
Isn't Fate a lesbian?

If the pillow wants a divorce, does that mean she will get half his action figures?

Technically, if they live together for so long. Legally it's considered common law marriage.

Maybe now he is her "beard".

@FoxxFireArt:
I'm not sure South Korea has common law marriage-- only 11 states in the US do (plus D.C.). Japan has it though.
