Well congrats to her. She is one of the better singers out there, making music that stands above the rest of the J-Pop stuff out there. Wish them the best.

On the plus side, this woman is a rare glimmer of real talent in a sea of insipid mediocrity.

On the minus - do I hear any advance on 18 months?

Really like Dreams Come True and she can actually SING.

Congrats to her! She is an amazing singer, writer and women. She doesn't look 46 and certainly could keep up with a 27 year old. I wish them well.

Well,her dream came true didn't it ? And an added bonus is he's much younger.

Hope she made him sign a prenup.

started the duo Dreams Come True more than two decades ago.

She and Nakamura started the trio more than two decades ago (in 1988).

Good luck to them both.

I disagree. The woman has a good head on her shoulders, isn't desperate to get married and has done very well for herself, with and without a man to support her. I wish them both happiness.

Congratulations and all happiness to them both. She sounds like a smart woman in control of her life and her own publicity, who has had some hardship and loss in her life, and has powered on through. Admirable.

Not that strange, really. Men are still capable of starting a family well into middle age so a man marrying much younger could be simply a delayed desire for offspring. A woman on the back-end of her 40's marrying a man much younger probably isn't looking to have more kids. Couple that with history. Throughout the ages men of wealth have had marriages arranged with other families' teenaged daughters. So it has happened MUCH more often than the reverse.

Yeah, "a dream come true" for any cougar lady out there. Right on, another "cougar" success story...

Guess you missed Kato Cha marrying a woman 45 years younger than him a week or so ago.

Dreams Come True, that group was great, hope Miwa found true love and be able to stay with his husband a long time even that his husband can pass as his son. Anyway, hope their DCT.

She is so good she can marry anyone she dam well likes!! Famous old guys marry young chicks all the time and no-one complains, so hey Miwa-chan, go for it I say!!

I wish them happiness. "Dorikamu" has been a favourite.

"She joins a long list of woman celebrities who have married considerably younger men."

Who, other than Demi Moore? Was it Madonna who married a somewhat younger bloke for a short time? Who else? I can't seem to piece together this "long list."

She and Nakamura started the trio more than two decades ago (in 1988).

Well they lost one several years ago due to what was it, a vehicle accident under the influence, something like that? There's no short and sweet way to write it without dredging all that up, why not write 'duo', as that is what it is now?

It was two incidents of drug possession...he had left the band, but the drug problems cemented his not coming back I'd imagine.

If the ages were reversed the cries of gold digging and cradle robbing would flood this board.

I really don't give a damn if their ages and genders amount to an atypical pattern. What's it to me? If they are happy, then I am happy for them.

If she was 60 she would still be a catch.

For a 46 year old she still looks amazing. Go her!

Yoshida, still hugely popular among mostly female fans in Japan, started the duo Dreams Come True more than two decades ago

Moderator: this is incorrect. DCT was started by Masato Nakamura (bassist) in 1988, and was originally a trio until Takahiro Nishikawa (keyboards) was forced to quit after a drug charge. And DCT had a much more huge following than just female fans, including fans of both genders in the US and the UK.

Shotacon!

19 years younger, to be exact. No need to exaggerate that big figure of 20..! She's rich & pretty & independent. She must have really love this young guy! Why can't the J media & J public be happy for her. I was on a train ride & the Obasans were gossiping about this story. I bet they wish they could get laid by some young guys too...and since they can't they just go on talking about it endlessly..!

Good for her Japanese men entertainers wait until they are nearly 40 if the woman don't get pregnant first before taking a bride because they marry women usually 10 to 20 years younger. It makes a shortage of marriageable men in your age group. This is the only way women will be able to balance their odds or risk spending the rest of their lives alone.

She joins a long list of woman celebrities who have married considerably younger men.

Apparently the list isn't long enough to warrant the headline to stop at "marries"...

"She joins a long list of woman celebrities who have married considerably younger men."

If it's such a long list why is it such big news? Good on her, and congrats to a very talented woman (and her husband).
