TOKYO — Japan’s Princess Mako, the eldest granddaughter of Emperor Akihito, is set to give up her royal title in order to marry a commoner, Japanese media reported.

The 25-year-old Princess met Kei Komuro in 2012 while the two were students at Tokyo’s International Christian University,The Japan Times reported.

Currently, Komuro works as a paralegal at a law firm, although he once memorably appeared in a tourism campaign in which he played the “Prince of the Sea.”

Princess Mako, the eldest grandchild of Emperor Akihito, first met Kumoro in 2012 at International Christian University in Tokyo. Officials said the princess’ parents, Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko, have approved the union.

Mako’s unofficial fiance, Kei Komuro, appeared before media on Wednesday outside the Tokyo law office where he works, a day after the news of their engagement broke. However, the Imperial Household Agency declined to comment.

“Now is not the time for me to comment, but I want to speak at the right time,” Komuro, 25, told reporters.

Princess Mako and Kumoro’s official engagement is expected to be announced in mid-June at the earliest, with the wedding to take place in 2018.

Japan’s cabinet is expected to approve a bill on Friday to allow Akihito, 83, to step down, the first abdication by a Japanese emperor in nearly two centuries, after he said last August he feared age would make it hard to fulfil his duties.

Couples with a good sex life are more likely to cheat. Imge for representation only

Having great sex life in a relationship has been considered one of the most important factors as that would stop either partner becoming unfaithful. But a new research has found that having a good sex life only is not enough for partners as it may make one’s partner more likely to stray.

Researchers at the University of Florida assessed how newly married couples reacted to other people and found those with active sex lives were more likely to want sex with others

The team documented their sex satisfaction then monitored their interactions with others.

The researchers also found men with a more-attractive wife were less likely to cheat than women with a more-attractive husband . The authors said this sex difference is “consistent with evidence that partner attractiveness to men than it is to women”.

“With the advent of social media, and thus the increased availability of and access to alternative partners, understanding how people avoid the temptation posed by alternative partners may be more relevant than ever to understanding relationships,” the authors said.

They found that participants who quickly stopped looking at an attractive person were less likely to have affairs during the course of the study. The difference in the length of time of the gaze between ‘cheaters’ and ‘faithful’ people was just fractions of a second.

A person who looked at an attractive person for just a few hundred milliseconds longer was 50 per cent more likely to cheat than someone who stopped looking at the attractive picture.

As well as avoiding looking longingly at others, researchers found that faithful people also ‘downgraded’ how attractive they viewed others.

The authors say that faithful people — when asked to evaluate how good looking other people were — gave lower scores than people who went on to cheat.

At a time when potential romantic partners on social media that could tempt someone to stray is high, the authors say their research is more relevant than ever further suggesting that people who really enjoy good sex are more likely to be unfaithful because they seek out sex with more partners.

Younger people were also more likely to cheat. And men who had previously had lots of short-term sexual partners were also more likely to have an affair, although the opposite was true of women.
