That's Because You're A Robot, You Tin-Head
A British scientist has been awarded a doctorate for a paper predicting that humans will one day marry robots. Maastricht University awarded David Levy a PhD for a thesis entitled Intimate Relationships with Artificial Partners. He wrote: "Trends in robotics and shifting attitudes on marriage are likely to result in sophisticated robots that will eventually be seen as suitable marriage partners." The thesis concluded that the findings are just as applicable to human interaction with robots of the future as they are to relationships between humans of today.
