Yaguchi, Nakamura tie the knot

11 Comments

Former Morning Musume singer Mari Yaguchi, 28, and actor Masaya Nakamura, 25, on Sunday announced their marriage. The couple had been dating for almost a year and a half before Nakamura proposed on Yaguchi's birthday earlier this year. The couple presented their marriage documents Sunday, but will delay their wedding ceremony until sometime after next year.

At 192 cm in height, Nakamura towers 47.5 cm over his new wife. "Some people mention the height difference between us. Some even mention the difference in our public profiles, but I like the honest way he said 'I'll pay for the cheap places, you can pay for the expensive places,'" said Yaguchi of her new husband.

"He made me laugh when he told me 'I won't make you cry by cheating, but you might end crying due to poverty,'" she said.

Does he play basketball? Her neck is really going to hurt, unless he sits on the floor and her in a chair.

What a lovely couple.

Bashing handsome men on Jt is like a hobby for some. I know that short men or men without a pretty girlfriend have some complex and want to become tall or to have good looking girlfriends and do not accept that other people have more success with women.

I am so happy for Marippe.For me my first introduction to JPop was through Morning Musume,always was a fan of Yaguchi Mari,everyone loved her,and she seemed a favourite on the Utaban show,along with Aibon and Nono.

She always was happy and genki,no pretence,no ego,just a great girl. Wishing them both the best.

Both looks in contrast of heights, but their souls may be in a harmony. Congratulation.
