Eat Your Sushi – Say the Same Thing

Hi everyone!

It’s almost our anniversary! Nine years! Nine freaking years! Ah. That’s starting to feel like a big number to us. Five years still felt like we were new at it. At nine years it still feels new, but we’re starting to think that it’s an impressive number.

I didn’t go over the full details of the story in our video. A few years ago we are at a fancy event for fancy people, and we were brought because we’re YouTubers. I still feel bizarre when we’re invited to these events in which we hang out with ridiculously wealthy people. Anyhow, at this event, I went over to the bar to get drinks for Martina and I. I saw three dudes there in business suits, with their jackets unbuttoned along with a couple buttons off the top of their shirt. They were holding drinks and laughing together kinda drunkenly. When I ordered two drinks they said “oh! Having a party by yourself, are we?!” at which point I explained that one of the drinks were for my wife. Oh, married, are we?! How long? It was only a few years at the time. “Wait till you hit year seven. That’s when you’ll hit the seven year itch” said one of them, and the other two nodded and chipped in their points of agreement. That’s when they left their wives. Seven years is as good as it gets, according to them.

At the time I didn’t know what to say. I couldn’t be like “well, you don’t know us. That’s not going to happen” because if I did say that I’d get a follow up with “oh you’re young still. Just you wait!” Well, seven years has passed. It’s about to be nine years, and Martina and I are closer than we’ve ever been before. And now that it’s nine years I feel like I can start telling people that they’re wrong. I’m at that old, retired person stage, where I can say what I want because I’ve got more experience. Sleazy businessmen can’t give me advice or suggestions about marriage anymore. People that have been married for a couple of years and then got quickly divorced can’t tell me what women are like.

Though, I’m sure some will try, and for many of them, they might be right. Maybe their relationship advice grew from their own personal experiences and the anecdotes of those close to them, and they all may be valid within those circles. And I heard the advice of people around me whose marriages I watched fall apart. But I knew when Martina and I first started dating that we had something different. We knew within one month of dating each other that we were going to get married. We bought our wedding rings after one month of dating. No joke. We knew then. We still know now. We’re going to be together forever.

Ok I’ll stop. This week’s Thursday video will be a bit delayed, because we’re celebrating our anniversary, but it’s gonna be a good video. Saturday 6PM Japanese time is when we’re publishing it. It’s another collaboration. It’s gonna be super fun. I think you’re gonna like it :D

  1. I still get such joy out of watching your guys’ videos. I think I really love this Eat Your Sushi format- kind of like a talk show, and then the little segments break it up a bit. It flows really well.

    I am 99.9% sure that your wedding anniversary is June 16, which has already passed here in the US. I remember it because my birthday is on the 22, and I know someone else with a birthday on the 16, so it’s a weird association in my head.

    I’m so glad you were able to prove those 7 year people wrong. It’s really scary looking out into the field of relationships. Sometimes it takes a long time to meet the right person. People make lots of mistakes. I didn’t find my SO until I was 28. We’ve been together just over 2 years, but I knew it was going to be for the long haul about 4 months in. Being able to see such a clear example of a quality relationship right here in front of me for these 4-5 years of viewership has kept me thinking about what it takes to be a long term power couple. I’m really happy for you guys, congratulations!!

  2. CONGRATS ON YOUR 9 YEAR ANNIVERSARY. One of the largest reasons I started watching your channel was because of how comfortable and natural you are with each other. People are so pessimistic :(. BUT, I’ll be in Tokyo for the next few days and idk how other nasties find you guys somehow but can we be friends you guys are goals.

  3. Happy 9th Anniversary!! It’s today, June 16th here in the US right now & you two officially tied the knot 9 years ago — I say officially because your hearts bonded forever way before your actual wedding day ^_^. I hope that you guise had or are still having a wonderful time at Disneyland! Simon, did you ever get the life-sized Kirby for Martina? Let me know in case one needs to make a trip across the ocean to you ^_~. Love you guise & hope that you always feel like you’re on your Honeymoon!

  4. Hi guys! Thanks for always posting such fun and lovely videos – it has been a rough week in America and your videos are always a welcome bit of happy.

    Just curious, how have your eating habits changed since you moved to Japan? I grew to love Korean food and learned what to try based on watching y’all (love Martina’s Midnight Munchies!), so I’m curious what you’re doing for dinner at home/what do you go out for etc. Is it Coco curry all day erryday?

    Thanks and love from North Carolina!

  5. Play-by-play commentary begin!

    Can we just talk about that absolutely ADORABLE dress Martina is wearing in the opening?! Martina has really become my fashion icon – she’s comfortable but cute! I want that dress!

    4th month already?! Feels like it’s going by so fast!

    I wish i had a cat vacuum. my two cats are so bad at looking at stuff even if I put it in their faces….

    o.o Did….Did…did Simon say Girls Generation… as someone irrelevant in Kpop O.O my soul…my SONE soul….. I still love you guys.

    Every time I have a question I want to send someone else has already sent it and it gets answered. Lol.

    I agree Simon – tea is bad. I’ve tried a couple of times to get into it but no matter how long I steep it it’s just watered down flavor. I have found that if I get fruit teas (like orange, apple cinnamon, blueberry) and add honey it’s better.

    Capsule toy question!!
    O.O oh gods…anniversary…ergh…I’m 99% sure it’s a double digit number like 14, 19 or 24…for some reason 4 and 9 seem familiar…*reads comments* nope..not even close. But Happy Anniversary anyway!!!!

  6. Literally sat here at work on lunch drinking 3 cups of Yorkshire tea, its not excessive, its delicious!

    I do however have a question : Why did you name your flower RuPaul?! Was it after RuPaul as in Drag Race??

    Your anniversary was on the 16th, the hotel story was amazing (Gladstone???) with the awards party!! Actually, Martina, did you still have your hair extensions in for the party?

  10. June 16 2007 was the day you guys get married!
    Martina had to make your own flowers cause you wanted peony flowers in it but the florist screwed so you go them both from your garden and from Subway sandwich garden the night before. =P You guys wanted to keep the wedding small but made it very specialized. Like the poetry themed table arrangements with coordinated balloons. Instead of a wedding cake you and a cake made of cupcakes. During the first dance you had a remix in the middle and danced to Michael Jackson’s Rock with you. The hotel that you booked to stay at that night was entirely booked for the much music video awards after party so you were able to get join the party and get a bunch of cool stuff and were known by all the staff as the wedding couple. ^^ At the end of the Simon put the do not disturb sign and of course got all the whootwhoots from the neighbors. teehee The night was filled with a bunch of pleasant surprises~
    Also I admire your relationship because you strive to make each other happy because you still act like you guys are dating. And you talk about be positive members of a team. You guys act like you are married to each everyday and not just for the one day of your anniversary. I hope that when my time come to marry my special someone (according to my parents it should be coming in a few years) that I can be as happy as you two. Lots of love, Jen <3

  11. Hi guys,
    Great show this week! loved it. Martina, congrats on the first produce of tomatoes. They are super adorable.
    My mum is a gardening fan too and she loves her plants like she loves me.
    There is one thing she used to always tell me and that is to never point at your plants, if you do then they die. Now by mistake, if you do point at your plants, then immediately you withdraw and bite your finger. It is a superstition, but since the advice came from my mum, i did not really ask questions.

    So when i saw your video where you showing us the plants, you were pointing at them. so this popped into my mind. :)
    Always love sharing! :) <3

  12. Your wedding anniversary is June 16th! Which is pretty close to ours which is tomorrow June 14th =^.^= (2 year wedding anniversary but we have also been together for 9 years). A random coincidence but I also think it’s cool that it’s your guise’s 16th EYS video during the week of your anniversary on the 16th :3
    Safe travels on your adventures this month and hope you guise have a 100 more happy, crazy, Wonderful Treasure Filled years ahead of you.

  13. June 16th is your wedding anniversary!
    Last year you posted your tips for a happy marriage video, which is one of my favorite videos of yours, for entirely different reasons from what I love about your other videos. I also showed that video to my mom, and it actually made her cry. Your marriage is so sweet, and she was so happy that I could easily identify why and how you two get marriage so right.

  14. June 16th is your anniversary! :3

    Also, something very similar happened to my now fiance and I while we were trying to reach the Shibuya JR station one day!

    We were waiting to cross the big crossing, and a guy came up to us and started talking to us–asking us where we were from, how we are liking Japan, etc. Similar to Martina, he told me that I looked like an elf from the Lord of the Rings. xD He was being extremely friendly, but my fiance sorta half expected he would ask for money (since that’s typically the only reason why random people would talk to us on the street in the US), and I kinda got the idea he might have been a little under the influence. He also said stuff like “You guys make me feel crazy!” although by the end he just welcomed us to Japan and walked away. xD

    His only particularly defining characteristic while we were there in April was that he was wearing a studded leather jacket and had fairly shaggy hair compared to other men I had seen while in Japan. It would be something if was the same guy, lol.

  16. I was so embarrassingly happy when Dan mentioned Yorkshire Gold is his preferred brand of tea. It’s the best brand of Orange Pekoe I have had, and we hoard it in my family because there are not a lot of places in Toronto that sell it for a reasonable price. It’s after dinner tradition to make a pot of the ‘Queen’s Tea’ in our Brown Betty teapot.

  17. Hey y’all! I commented on Youtube, but I finally made an account so I can comment here too! Yayyy!!! It’s not a big deal, but I’m seeing some confusion in the Youtube comments about the “gluten free” comment Simon made. It is weird to see “gluten free” written on things that you would think are naturally gluten free, but you’d be surprised how many things have hidden gluten in it. As someone with Celiac disease who gets really sick if I eat gluten, I’ve learned to look out for gluten in soy sauce (which is in lots of beef jerky ;D ), natural spices, vinegar, medicines, and even some preservatives. To me, a gluten free diet is something that was forced on me and definitely not just a fad! Happy (almost) 9 years and love y’all always!

  19. You and Martina got married June 16,2007 “Getting married by daylight eating cake by moonlight always having lots of fun right? they are the pur-fect cute couple”

  20. Sorry to disagree with you, Martina, because you know chicks before Richards… =D
    But I do agree with Simon in these 2 points. First, tea ever so is lame, I lived 8 years in England and not even with peer pressure I became a tea lover… Second… Ranch rooooocks! #teamsimonlovesranchandsodoI

  21. I hate when people make that sort of wide sweeping affirmations about relationships, etc. Not only it is a gross generalization, but it induces a negative mindset that is really toxic (like the seven year itch, some people might be perfectly happy at seven years but heard so much about it they start second guessing their relationship and end up making a problem out of thin air). Of course, people should be realistic about relationships, but that is different from setting yourself up for failure. And sometimes you just have to dive right in! I moved in with my boyfriend of 3 years the month we started dating – and we still are madly in love and grossly sweet with each other, even though everybody aid we were rushing things. Sometimes you just know :)
    Anyway, happy anniversary, guys!

  24. Guysssss!! I can’t believe i’ve been around for sooo many anniversaries!! I’m really happy to see you and your awesome marriage. I think your anniversary is June 16th… imright? I remember I saw Simon’s Draw my life and he talks about when you started dating and when you got married!!

  25. If i am correct your wedding anniversary is June 17th. After watching the TL;DR you posted about your actual wedding, I played detective! After you mentioned the Much Music Video awards (I think that’s the name) after party at your hotel I calculated back nine years to 2007 and looked up what day those awards where held that year which was June 17th, 2007. Assuming the after party was on the same night as the awards and since you got there after your wedding i deduce that your anniversary is in fact June 17th. Sorry for the long post, watching an old video of yours is always fun and so was playing detective. Love you guys! Keep up the great work!!

  27. Martina you need a flame orange streak between the lavender and the pink. That is all.

  28. June 17th, 2007 was when you both got married. You held the event at a bistro in your university(University of Toronto) and Martina *borrowed* the flowers (peonies) for her bouquet from a subway station. You had a cupcake tower too!(Yum!) and now you shall live happily ever after!!! :D

  29. June 17. You’ve mentioned in a TL;DR that you almost lost your honeymoon room @ The Gladstone, because MuchMusic was having their MMVA afterparty there for the 2007 awards. But they let you keep your room, which led to much hilarity with every. single. person. banging on the door of the ‘wedding couple’ aka the only real guests at the hotel that night. XD

    I hope you both got some free swag from their gift lounges that night! And crashed the party!

  30. Mr. Annoying and I have been together for 32 years. We’ve been married for fifteen.

    We can’t complete each other’s sentences, we drive each other nuts but we’re a true blue team. I got him, he’s got me.

    It’s not hearts and flowers but it works for us.

  31. <3 It always makes me so happy to see your 'Eat your sushi' videos, even though it means that the weekend is over :(. My husband and I are reaching our 5 year anniversary this year, so super-duper congrats to you two! Your videos always make me happy, and i'll never say 'no' to more cooking videos w/Martina. I hope everything worked out with your family in Canada and that you both have a woooonderful week :)

    • Also I forgot to add that june 16th 2007 is the day of the fancy fancy wedding, and of the crazy hotel after party that you guise squeaked into (oh my god you guys are the wedding couple! come in, come in!)

  32. Honestly, I’ve been with my sweetie for almost 6 years now, and we just got engaged last month. Still feels like the dating phase to me, and still rocking it (not use to calling him my fiance though). Over time, we just stopped caring what pople thought of our relationship and how we act.
