Former Morning Musume Member Mari Yaguchi Apologizes For Illicit Affair

It seems like the recent happy marriage of former Morning Musume member Mari Yaguchi and stage actor Masaya Nakamura has already been stained after Yaguchi's illicit affair was revealed to the public in Josei Seven on May 21.

According to the magazine, the couple has been living away from each other for almost three months now after Nakamura found Yaguchi in bed with 25-year-old model Kenzo Umeda in February. The cheating incident has lead the marriage to be on the rocks and there are no new reports regarding any reconciliation between the two.

As of now, the 30-year-old idol has admitted her scandalous mistake and stated her apology during her variety show, for having such an affair.

    This is disappointing... Cheating is one of those things that isn't easy to just say "Oh it's ok I forgive you." Especially by finding out the way Nakamura did. Even harder to swallow knowing she's had a past incident regarding dating while in Morning Musume.

    I understand her, it's hard to say no to sex or a hot guy sometimes, I'm not going to pretend like that's not hard for me aswell but yeah she should have atleast hid it better.

    Haha, that's very open-minded of you. You should watch Penn & Teller's Bullshit show about "Family Values"

    Well, she dropped out of Momusu because of a scandal... after being leader for all of 2 months. People give the idol dating rule a hard time, but it is kind of telling about how seriously someone treats these sorts of things. So, fair warning was had.

    Fujimoto Miki was a leader less than a month when she had to leave MM because she was caught with a guy. She dated him (Shoji Tomoharu) for a few years, married him and has a son now. Tsuji Nozomi broke the rule too but she managed to hide it until she was pregnant with Sugiura. They are married now and have 3 children...
    Breaking a no-dating rule doesn't mean that you will break other relationship-rules too. It just mean that you weren't careful enough to hide that you found someone you want to be with...

    Or their house of cards hasn't fallen down yet. But I don't really mean to say that one leads to the other- merely that it's a red flag.

    It's easy for Momusu or AKB members to start dating. Quit, then date. They seem to be able to quit at will, so it's not like they're obligated to finish a long contract. I don't generally agree with divorce, but if that's how it's going to be, that's the correct channel for this. Divorce, then do as you please.

    Breaking a no-dating rule shows that you value the passion of the relationship over the depth and consequences of a relationship. It shows you are trying to take advantage of the advantages of being single, while being in a relationship. It's a red flag, that's all.

    I really hope they can reconcile, but I also know that it will not be easy. An affair equals betrayal and betrayals hurt, not one, but both sides greatly... :(

    Oh no!!!! :( I really hope they can work this out. We will support you Yaguchi!! I feel bad for her husband though...

    Maybe she's the type that can easily fall i love...

    Hm... I don't know...
