Watching Naruto has been nothing short of a journey filled with tears, laughter, and lots of incredible memories. Many people grew up watching Naruto, and it won’t be an exaggeration to say that we all got emotionally connected to each character in this incredible anime.
The journey was quite fulfilling and didn’t just end with the characters battling a powerful foe. Masashi Kishimoto was kind enough to bless us with the marriage and kids of the main characters.
Of the main characters in the anime, Naruto married Hinata, Sasuke married Sakura, Shikamaru married Temari, Sai married Ino, and Chouji married Karui. These couples remain married and even have kids together.
Naruto Characters that got Married
Let’s take a look at how the weddings happened.
Naruto Uzumaki Married Hinata Hyuga
The main character Naruto Uzumaki, married Hinata Hyuga in Episode #501, titled “The Message” of the Naruto: Shippuden anime. The episode showcased the preparation for the wedding ceremony of the two but never really showed the actual ceremony. What’s more, fans get short scenes of their wedding in The Last: Naruto The Movie.
The relationship between Naruto and Hinata was very much expected, especially in Shippuden. Although Naruto has had a crush on Sakura Haruno since he was young, she didn’t share the same feelings for him. On the other hand, Hinata has admired Naruto since day one, always secretly watching him from the shadows.
Hinata was that girl who sacrificed her life for Naruto during the battle with pain. She was always there for him through thick and thin. Therefore, she deserved Naruto more than anyone else in the anime.
Naruto didn’t feel the same way for Hinata in the beginning, but eventually fell for her, and then married her as well. What’s more, they also have two adorable kids, Boruto Uzumaki and Himawari Uzumaki.
Sasuke Uchiha Married Sakura Haruno
The other two members of Team 7, Sasuke and Sakura married one another. Fans didn’t get to see their wedding and only saw a picture in Episode #21 of the anime Boruto. Furthermore, considering Sasuke’s attitude towards Sakura throughout the Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden anime, their relationship was pretty obvious.
Sakura has always had deep feelings of love and admiration for Sasuke since the day she first saw him in class. While Sasuke had always given her the cold shoulder, he did develop a soft spot for Sakura in his heart and showed care on rare occasions.
The two spend a lot of time together, making Sasuke realize his feelings for Sakura, and marrying her later on. Furthermore, they have a daughter named Sarada Uchiha, who’s got the Sharingan from her father and brute strength from her mother.
Shikamaru Nara Married Temari
The incredibly smart, Shikamaru Nara, married the Kunoichi of the sand village, Temari. Fans never got to witness their Wedding Ceremony in the anime. However, Shikamaru and Temari’s relationship is indeed canon.
Throughout the anime, Shikamaru and Temari spent a lot of time together and shared moments that displayed their feelings for each other. Fans were looking forward to their marriage, especially after they came as a couple at Naruto and Hinata’s wedding.
The couple also has a son named Shikadai Nara, who is very much like his father in appearance and attitude.
Chouji Married Karui
Chouji and Karui’s relationship was quite shocking for most, but the two did get married. In the anime, Choji and Karui barely had any kind of interaction together. Additionally, the only scene they have together is in The Last: Naruto The Movie, where they are walking together around the town.
Karui of the Cloud Village revealed in Boruto that Choji’s kindness and good qualities made her fall for him. The couple also has a daughter named Choco Akimchi, who resembles both of her parents in appearance, and attitude.
Sai Married Ino
Sai and Ino’s marriage wasn’t too shocking, but it was slightly out of the blue. Fans didn’t get to experience the actual wedding ceremony, but the couple did get some romantic scenes together.
In the very beginning, when Sai first appeared, Ino showed great interest in him and found him cute. Sai being the emotionless guy he is, never really displayed any romantic interest.
However, the two have a lot in common and spent a good amount of time together too, making their decision to get married understandable. Later on, the couple had a boy named Inojin Yamanaka, who resembles his father a lot and has the same hair color as his mother.
Kiba and Tamaki
Many fans believe that Kiba and Tamaki might be together, but there’s no solid evidence seen yet in the anime. During a mission, Kiba for the first time showed interest in a girl and that was Tamaki. Kiba was awestruck by her appearance, and most believe that he might’ve developed feelings for her as well.
There’s a huge chance that the two are in a relationship but probably havent thought of getting married yet.
Asuma and Kurenai
Most believe that Asuma married Kurenai, but there’s no proof of their marriage. The two have displayed their deep affection for each other on many occasions and were lovers as well. Fans were looking forward to the couple’s wedding, but Asuma’s sudden death broke the hearts of many, especially his lover Kurenai.
Additionally, the couple has a daughter named Mirai Sarutobi, who bears a deep resemblance to her mother.
Rock Lee has a son named Metal Lee and was rumored to be married. The Taijutsu user’s wife was never revealed, so there’s no confirmation as to who Rock Lee married. However, fans are speculating that Tenten might be Metal Lee’s mother because of somewhat similar eyes.
Naruto Characters that Did not Get Married
The wedding bells rang for most of the main characters in Naruto. However, some of the characters in the anime remain single.
Tenten is one of the members of Team Guy and she didn’t marry anyone in the show. She had feelings for Neji Hyuga and most believe it’s because of his death that she hasn’t married yet. There are also speculations that she might be Metal Lee’s mother.
Shino Aburame is a member of Team 8 and is the most mysterious of them all. In the anime, there is no information about Shino and his family. What’s more, his love life is also a major mystery. However, his marital status is single.
Gaara almost got into an arranged marriage with a woman named Hakuto. His experience regarding the arranged marriage is highlighted in the light novel, Gaara Hiden: A Sandstorm Mirage. However, the wedding did not take place and Gaara remains single.
Kakashi’s marital status was the most expected in the anime. Many believe that he didn’t marry due to his cruel and tragic past. Kakashi lost Hanare, the girl he first fell in love with. The former Hokage also witnessed gruesome situations throughout his life and Anbu member.
Kakashi also had to witness the death of his family and friends at a very young age. The fear of losing someone he dearly loves is what stands between him and marriage.
Tsunade didn’t marry anyone due to her past relationship with Dan Kato. Dan’s death badly affected Tsunade, taking years for her to get over him. Despite being the last Senju, Tsunade didn’t marry anyone because of her love for Dan.
