Before Tsunade was married to her husband, they had a genuine love for each other. When they finally tied the knot they were no longer the same couple back then. Their relationship was unfortunately short-lived. Mayoi never actually saw them getting along for once, resulting a divorce 10 years ago.
She and her husband stayed under the same roof for one more year after the separation. Tsunade was half-forced to agree on a vow made by her husband to never see her daughter again. In turn, her daughter was also vowed to never see her mother again in her father’s name.
Mayoi tells Koyomi Araragi that she lived with only her father and couldn't recognise her mother's face anymore, and therefore set out to visit her. It is later revealed that she was hit by a car while crossing a road, and had become an apparition. Koyomi and Hitagi Senjougahara then lead her to the site of where her mother used to live, and she finds peace.
