Kimiko Hamada Ikeo, Saeko's mother has been married for 18 years! For her marriage is very imporant and she wasn't surprised when Alessandro popped the question to Saeko!
1. What was your reaction to the engagement?
I see them both very close as we living in a same house I have watched them grow together last 2 years. So it was not a surprise, everything comes very natural and of course I am very happy.
2. How important is marriage in your opinion?
To share and support each other's life and stand side by side always. Lifetime partnership that you are going to promise to each other! It is very important and it need to be very sincere and pure.
3. What kind of traditions do you have in your family?
We are very united and family comes first always, so as Alessandro's family. I am very happy to have them as my own family.
4. How do they differ from European traditions?
The wedding is a very big event in Japan , generally people tend to have a big wedding with many guests and many protocol. I would like Saeko to have a beautiful and memorable day with people she loves most. My daughter doesn't have to do the wedding to make my family happy or keep our family tradition. I just wish my daughter to be happy and married to the person she loves for a life.
5. How long have you been married?
For 18 years.
6. What is the secret to happy marriage?
Happy marriage doesn't come as a wedding gift. The wedding day is only one day in long marriage life. Saeko and Alessandro have to build up their life together and work hard everyday. I trust them very much on this. Alessandro said to me " I am married to Saeko so now you are mine too ! " he is a very warm hearted man and always makes me smile.
Alessandro Della Morte, Saeko's fiance, told i-Marbella about the engagement and about his thoughts on marriage.
1. When and how did you know Saeko is "the one"?
The first second I saw her! Then every day I got more and more sure! When she eat my pasta with smile .... And in others of millions occasion I can't tell all of them, it would be too many.
2. How long did it take you to propose to her? How long did you plan it?
It was soo fast;-) There was no plan! It was something that came very naturally.
3. Did you ask for anybody's advice?
No advice was needed from anyone. It came directly from my heart.
4. What do you love most about Saeko?
How she takes care of me, how she loves me, how she dedicates herself to me and how much she care about our family and people around her.
5. What does marriage mean to you?
Love and respect in our family and to share a world and life together.
