Tenkaiho (30, Onoe-beya, former maegashira 8 now juryo 7) yesterday (a lucky day on the calender) registered his marriage to a 32 year old care worker from Anjo city, Ehime.
They met at the Nagoya-basho senshuraku party 3 years ago and had a date for lunch already the next day. A year and a half later he proposed to her.
To aim for a return to makuuchi after 10 basho he goes for double digits.

Yes, it was in the news. But while Toyohibiki has 10 articles, Tochinoshin has only 1.

Tochinoshin (27) returned yesterday from Georgia with his wife Nino (28). They have a relation since high school. He had returned to Georgia after the end of the basho after 4 years again and they got married on the 1st. For her it's the first time to Japan and she knows not much about sumo yet.

And now the wedding reception, about 300 guests. The bride in the same 3 type of dresses as yesterday's - but the cake is a bit smaller. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1599124.html

And this time he gets 2 articles - but both only again from Nikkan. Next goal: Sekiwake.

I bet she could never have imagined she would be getting married in a kimono.

For me that hair is even more surprising. Wow. Do the sumo hairstylists moonlight for sekitori weddings?

Nothing to be worried about. Such a reception is just a huge big schlepp for the couple, especially the bride. It's a duty to fulfill, not a party to feel comfortable at. She'll get her good remembrance of it afterwards...

Asasekiryu (34) had a wedding reception today, Valentine Day, with about 400 (-500) guests. He is married to a class-mate from primary-school. He met her again when he went home after Nagoya 2006, where he was new sanyaku. They began a relation, married and have a daughter and a son.
After he made it back to makuuchi last Aki basho they at last decided to have a party.

Toyohibiki is engaged

Today the wedding reception with about 600 guests, with Prime minister Abe's wife: he is honorary president of Toyohibiki's local Shimonoseki koenkai, she spoke the congratulatory address at the wedding. Toyohibiki and his wife yesterday were invited for dinner to the Prime ministers residence.

Former yokozuna Wajima was also there, a Nichidai sempai of Toyohibiki's shisho, Sakaigawa-oyakata, with a longtime relation.

After surgery for pharyngeal cancer he has difficulty to speak, but says he's OK, doing 50 minutes of walking each day.

I''m sure Wajima, after his difficult recent health problems, never expected Kitanoumi to pass away before him.

Wajima was quoted with saying just that.

Toyohibiki at the party spoke about his hardships when entering Sakaigawa-beya: at first getting refused, he came himself to the heya 2 years later - to beg for entry.

http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1604815.html

Wikipedia tells about the (then new Sakaigawa) oyakata trying to recruit him, but he didn't like the boy's attitude and refused https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyohibiki_Ryūta

I found this about his story on the forum

Toyohibiki is from the same town, Town of Toyoura, now a part of Shimonoseki City, Yamaguchi Prefecture as Homasho. While student at Hibiki High School, he was well known by locals for his misdeeds and as a feared member of biker gang. After graduating, he never stayed on one job for long, doing removing rust from tankers for a shipbuilder to driving trucks but his mother finally convinced him to join Ozumo which he did at the age of 20 years old.

They (now 31 and 32) will have the wedding reception on June 4th. 6-9 at juryo 11: the reception might have been cancelled if he had lost one more and so would drop to makushita next basho - they hadn't printed the invitations till after the basho and send them only recently.

He'll give his best to get a kachikoshi in May. http://www.chunichi.co.jp/chuspo/article/sumo/news/CK2016041302000153.html

A special donation for the Kumamoto earthquake victims came form former juryo Higonojo, Kumamoto-city local.
He canceled his wedding reception and sent the gifts for the 300 guests (in return for the money present they bring) to shelters for the evacuated.
He decided to marry while in juryo and did so last year. The reception was planned for the 16th at the shrine inside Kumamoto castle.
The quakes led to a postponement of the ceremony - and the towels and pastry etc. weren't wasted this way.

Sadanoumi getting married. 5 years together. Marina (?) Ueno is 28, a year younger than him. "When I first met her I said to myself that this seems like the real deal. She has helped me through some bad patches (those seven consecutive makekoshi bashos come to mind..)." he said. "I want to laugh a lot. I tend to be pessimistic, so that would be nice.. I'd like to have two kids," she added.
