"Son Gokū's Marriage" (孫悟空の結婚, Son Gokū no Kekkon; Viz "Goku Gets Married!") is the one hundred seventy-first chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The mysterious woman engages Gokū in battle, angry that he forgot about meeting her. Gokū's friends don't recognize her either, however, it becomes obvious Gokū has met the girl before when she mentions that Gokū promised her something. Muten Rōshi notes that, not only is the mysterious young woman strong, her form and techniques resemble the Turtle School Style.

Gokū doesn't remember what he promised the mysterious woman, however, she drops the bombshell: Gokū promised to marry her, stunning everyone. Gokū has to ask Kuririn what "wife" means, and Yamcha and Kuririn explain that "wife" means Gokū wants to marry her, and that means spending the rest of his life with her. Gokū still doesn't remember her, and asks who she is, but she will only tell him if he wins. Oolong, however, does know who she is, as her speech patterns give it away.

Gokū punches the air with extreme force, releasing a blast of wind towards the girl from the sheer air pressure, resulting in a ring out as she is knocked from the ring. Piccolo notes that the technique is similar to the Demon way of fighting. As agreed, the mysterious girl reveals her name: Chi-Chi, Gyūmaō's daughter. Finally remembering who she is, and what he promised, Gokū agrees to marry Chi-Chi to make good on his promise, despite having thought marriage was a kind of food when he agreed to the promise. Walking off arm in arm with his new fiancé, Gokū warns Kuririn to be careful as he goes to face his opponent, Piccolo.
