In the third attempt, the ex-Princess Of Akishino’s husband finally passed his New York bar exam. The result of the bar exam, which took place in July this year, was published in the second half of October, and Kei Komuro also had his name among the passed students.
The couple were engaged in 2017 after the former princess Mako decided to marry her common lover. After many obstacles, they got married in November 2021 and settled in New York.
He had failed the two bar exams he had previously passed, and everyone was suspicious of his ability to care for the ex-princess. There was a lot protests about their marriage, especially since the focus was on the financial situation of Komuro’s mother and her ex-husband, which Komuro had dissolved before the wedding.
On the outside, Japan looks futuristic with the latest technology and lifestyle innovations. Nevertheless, he values traditional ideals and has many unconventional social norms. About 38% of the Japanese population is over 60 (Wikipedia), which also translates into the general ideals of the country.
Some are completely unnecessary traditions include staying in the office until your seniors are done with their work, you’re unhappy if you eat in public while walking, and how you shouldn’t discuss pay and the work environment during an interview.
When Mako, the niece of the current emperor and daughter of the heir to the throne, decided to marry a plebeian, there was outrage in the country. Even after their wedding, many media outlets followed them around New York City for a glimpse into her life outside of the imperial family. Many criticized her informal attire because the Japanese were used to wearing the ceremonial attire of a member of the royal family.
While this was not the first time a member of the royal family had married an ordinary man, the couple initially met with a lot of backlash. Earlier they criticized that Komuro could not pass the bar exam. Now that he’s gone, the naysayers have already started to criticize that his salary it was hardly enough to support my wife. Earlier, there were also rumors about Mako and how he now has a job at the museum.
Komuro is currently employed by a law firm in New York. The bar exam he passed has a staggering 66% pass this year, with more than 6,350 students with 9,609 pass. Now the couple want to move out of Clinton to a better neighborhood, and Komuro’s mother is about to join the couple soon.
Former Princess Mako reached 31, the same age as her husband, on October 23, and the wedding year ended on October 26.
The present Emperor of Japan also married a commoner wife; however, she was initially reluctant because she was a successful lady and thought her freedom would be taken away after her marriage to the imperial family, but eventually agreed after the emperor’s third proposal.
But marrying the royal family comes with a few loosers, not leaving the royal family. It will take a little getting used to our former emperor in a country with completely different standards than Japan. However, plenty wish her well-being and continuous successful marriage.
