After marrying Haruo Makino, they went on their honeymoon to Atami. Chieko remarked several years later how "[they] were happy back then," also adding "that's when I thought [he'd] be successful." The couple had two children together, Tsukushi and Susumu.
Once Tsukushi reached high school age, Chieko forced her to enroll at the prestigious, Eitoku Academy. Despite her daughter's protests, Chieko wanted to avoid "shame" since the children of her husband's coworkers went to good schools. Chieko also encouraged Tsukushi's acquaintance with Tsukasa Domyoji, again despite her protests. She and her husband later visited Atami with their daughter and her friend, Kazuya Aoike. Tsukasa, who was also on vacation there, held a party, which Chieko forced Tsukushi to go to.
