Takumi Kawahara Marie Kondo
Kawahara married his wife Marie Kondo in 2013. In a blog post, Marie revealed that Kawahara didn’t have and couldn’t afford a ring so Marie gave him her grandmother’s engagement to give to her. Marie had been given the ring after her grandmother passed away.
“When Takumi, my husband, proposed to me, he didn’t have the money to buy me a ring. I told him ‘I don’t need a ring! You can give me this ring instead.’ Her ring is the one he gave to me when he proposed.”
The couple first met while they were waiting for an elevator at a speaking event in Tokyo. At the time they were both 21 years old and Marie was a college student. Marie’s attention was caught on the suit that he was wearing which had a little badge on it featuring the Japanese symbol for the word dream. “When I saw that, I thought, What a passionate person!”
The two ended up talking and Marie gave him one of her business cards to keep in touch. They became close, and after Kondo’s bestselling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up had been released in Japan in 2010, they incorporated their passions for business and organization together to share Kondo’s message of “sparking joy” through tidying with the world.
