Why do men go after the other man if their wife cheats with them? Who knows, maybe he didn't know she was married.

The Japanese media say his wife was also arrested as an accomplice.

If the choice is between selling sex, and hardship for ones family. Many people choose to sell. I think it's horrible, but I can't judge unless I've seen my children crying from hunger. It's horrible for the diplomat to leverage his position to take advantage of the people he was supposedly there to help. But murder is never the answer...
