1 Aug – Japanese actor Nishina Masaki and actress Takigawa Hanako are heading for divorce, after the couple had failed to repair their breaking marriage.
According to Tokyo Hive, the couple had decided to head towards divorce proceedings, after consulting their respective mothers, actress Nishina Akiko and Takigawa Yuim, who are divorcees. Close sources of the couple said that the couple started quarrelling over trivial issues since the end of last year and soon went for a separation.
Although the couple had tried to resolve matters between them to save their marriage, even the intervention of their elders could not save their marriage. The couple have cited differences in lifestyle and personality for the reason of their divorce.
Nishina and Takigawa met 10 years ago through a mutual friend, and they started dating in December 2008. Masaki proposed to Takigawa on New Year's Day in 2010 and they were officially married a year later in 2011.
They held their wedding ceremony at Guam on 21 January 2011, the same place where Masaki first proposed to Takigawa.
The divorce would end their one and a half of year marriage, which had resulted with no children.
