You don't get on well with your spouse, but you've still got the kids
think of. You can't run and you can't hide: but you can paper over
him or her with VR. When you don the helmet, maybe he/she
vanishes completely, or just gets a face-over, removing that look
revulsion. (See wedding
photo) Meanwhile, aurally, you only get
jist of what he/ she says, sieved of the hostile tones/ Perjoratives,
sprinkling of endearments added.
Soon enough, the stress levels fall. you start to think, maybe we
do this? Still live together in 67 square feet? Noticing the
smile, hearing gentle snorts, you crane in for a peck on the cheek.
Suddenly you lose your front teeth. (These helmets need grilles
maybe) Then you give your spouse a VR helmet as well.
