Sounds pretty quick... shotgun wedding ?

That woulda been a rushed background check.Hopefully no hidden surprises this time.But having only been together six months before deciding to marry, suggests something is amiss.

If and when the eight princesses of that generation are all married off, the imperial family may comprise only Prince Hisato. What's the backup plan?

It is quick, but maybe it is an omiai, and they decided they would go ahead, so why wait.

They’ll always have royal blood no matter what the House says.

They met through their mothers, who are acquainted through work with a charity organization.

Actually, I don't understand these royals. If being a royal is such a legitimate honor and all that nonsense, then by being so easily willing to throw it away to marry a lowly commoner, it shows a lack of respect for the royal life and privledge you've been so blessed with.

Yuko Maeda,

So do you think all the females should remain single? You do realize that if they want to have a husband and children*, their only choice is to marry a commoner as there are no eligible males in the royal family.

*I know a princess could have a child without getting married and that might happen someday, but I’m thinking it’s not likely with the current ones. I’m also not sure what the law has to say about a princess marrying a royal from another country.
