Chiyoshouma too, to a Mongolian 25 year old lady. Married yesterday. "I want to keep on gambarizing," he said, not surprisingly.

If they outlawed rikishi from saying gambarimasu, what would they ever talk about?

About aiming for Yokozuna I'd assume. Suddenly every jonokuchi would start declaring their Yokozuna intentions...

Chiyoshoma (27) at last shown with his 175cm tall wife (28). They married at the Mongolian embassy on the 25th. She graduated from Mongolian state university and then came to Japan for language studies, where the 2 met in Aug. 2014, as he was in makushita - he tells it was love at first sight, they exchanged contact addresses at once. She returned to Mongolia in 2015 and got a job at the Mongolia-Japan human resources development centre. Since Natsu 2016 they have a relation. She can speak English and Russian as well. http://www.chunichi.co.jp/chuspo/article/sumo/news/CK2018122702000183.html

Love at first sight from Chiyoshoma, not so much in the beginning from Burte’s sight as she told us  

He arranged that she could take part at Chiyonofuji’s voyage to Mongolia as a translator and could convince her with his charme(Punkrocker...)  

A very nice and clever young woman, good choice for both of them.

Ryuuden(28) has announced his engagement to a 33 year old nurse, Ai Fukumaru (? Ai am guessing..), fulfilling the age old obligation for a sekitori to marry an older woman (Wow, excessive punning even for me..). The ceremony will be held on the 9th of June at that Tokyo Hotel. "It's a new start. I will train even harder.. etc.. etc.." said Ryuuden. "He is a kind and considerate person. As I am a nurse, I want to take good care of him, including health-wise," she said. "She makes me feel at ease and has a beautiful smile.." he summed.

He calls her Maicha and she calls him Odenkun and they met in 2015. He bought her a 1 carat diamond engagement ring. "It cost me about 2-3 months of my wages (around 5 million yen), but I got some kensho, so.." he said. She is not pregnant but they want one child. 

That’s Mt. Fuji in the background, not my laundry, if you know what I'm saying..

Well they like to say they are focusing on their own brand of sumo style. But yeah the interview speak is pretty limited.

Interview speak is pretty much limited to “sou desu,” “gambarimasu,” and “I’m sorry for (insert hazing, abuse or crime here).

If Japanese law actually allowed sekitori to patent their sumo brand, they could sue each other for "non-incidental use of uwatenage in a torikumi" or "flagrant and persistent use of daeshi techniques."  Wouldn't that add to the enjoyment of sumo?:'-(

A strategic choice by Ryuuden given how injury prone a rikishi can be.    :-)   

( I married a nurse myself and does anyone have any idea how many times I have to wash my hand per day?  Ryu won't believe it.  )

The marriage registration was June 19th, as got known on the 27th. The following basho he had 12 wins, tying his personal best from the yusho doten (Kyokutenho).

Seri (30 like him) is from Otsu city, Shiga, and works at a company. She is the daughter of a friend of an individual koenkai member. It was love on first sight when they dined together in 2013 at an invitation of this member. They started a relation about one year later, she also was there to support him when he dislocated his shoulder in Nagoya 2014 and went kyujo. http://www.hochi.co.jp/sports/sumo/20170828-OHT1T50142.html

He had planned to marry her and the child was the trigger to do it.

That took quite a while - Tochiozan had his wedding reception today, with about 500 guests - Tochinoshin selected the wine - red and white wine from Georgia, singer Fumiya Fujii sang his hit "True Love".

Probably.  I've seen a few pictures of Japanese weddings (the Western part) where the bride and groom cut the huge cake with a sword.

This is not uncommon in England and the US, especially when the bride or groom has a military background.  Supposedly, the increased stiffness of cake icing on the first tier (to hold up the phenomenally tall cake) led to the bride and groom combining their strengths to puncture the icing.
