Both 39-year-old entrepreneurs and comedians welcomed two kids together. Mari Nikki. Wong often references Hakuta in her stand-up shows, including in her most recent comedy special, Ali Wong: Don Wong. Wong laughs at one point during the special that was made available to Netflix on February 2. Wong recalls how she “pressured my then boyfriend to propose to us” only for her to be taken to “monogamy jail.” 

“It was unbelievable. “My wish came true,” she stated. He proposed to her, they got married and bought a home. We had two children. Seven years later and here I am seven years later. I still don’t understand why. My future in comedy looked very uncertain at that time. I was really struggling….And I panicked. It was then that I thought, “I don’t know how I’m going to make it in this new world.” This Harvard Business School graduate should be caught so I don’t become homeless. Now, however, I realize that I am capable of making it all on my own. So, I just want to be my own person. The deep jealousy I feel for you single people can only be felt by married couples who have children. Okay, it’s not true that you know exactly how happy you really are.
