Actress Nagiko Tono, 29, revealed on her blog this week that she had gotten divorced on July 23, just 72 days after registering her marriage on May 13.
Tono married a 27-year-old man working in the food and beverage industry after dating him for six months, and wrote on her blog around the time of their marriage that she thought he was “someone she would always be hand-in-hand with, no matter what awaited them in the future.”
She wrote on Monday that the pair had agreed to get divorced and that they would start anew as friends. She did not elaborate on what led to the break-up, but prior to her July 15 entry – when she suddenly announced she would be taking a break from her blog – she often gave the impression that things were going well. Tono’s agency did not provide any further details.
The 72-day marriage is believed to be the shortest marriage involving someone in the Japanese entertainment world.© Japan Today
