Blue traveled with Kubota to Japan so that he could meet her parents and they were quite welcoming to him. Even though they weren’t aware that he had cerebral palsy, they did not treat him shabbily. Such parental acceptance gave Yuko Kubota and Josh Blue the impetus to forge ahead with their relationship at full speed, getting engaged eventually.

It remains a mystery the reason why Yuko Kubota and Josh Blue divorced. It could have been because they grew apart or discovered that they didn’t want the same things in life. Yuko may have also divorced Josh Blue as a result of his busy schedule but this seems unlikely as he always made out time to be with the family.
