I misread the title at first and thought two women with the given name Ai married. That would have been more interesting, since same sex marriage isn't legally recognized in Japan yet. A man who's surname is Ai marrying a woman who's given name is Ai is good news, too, though. (Good news for Japan as a whole, I mean, given their low marriage and birth rates. Hopefully they'll contribute to the latter stats, too!) So Congrats to the couple! If those aren't stage names, does that mean she'll be Ai Ai from now on?* Very Happy All you need is love...

*Can't read Kanji, so I actually have no idea if either "Ai" means "love" in this case...

If she were to change her name, it would be 会 愛. The kanji for Ichitaro's surname means "meeting" (or "to meet" as a verb)

Still rather romantic. Very Happy

You can make a sentence and a motto out of that: "Love well met." I like it! It really is romantic.

A certain starring character from Super Monkey Ball would be thrilled to see this... Wink
