The significant other left behind when a person becomes addicted to World of Warcraft (WoW). The WoWwidow is called such because there is no way the gamer is going to interact with the person or the real-life environment unless there is an interruption in their Internet service. It is usually then up to the WoWwidow to assume responsibility for all aspects of maintaining a household. More rarely, WoWwidower.
All east-coast servers are down for emergency maintainence after a deranged WoWwidow bombed the offices they were housed in. We apologize for any inconvenience.
