Sounds like she married a lazy good for nothing layabout. Doesn't work, help in the house or with the children?

Komastu San, dump this loser!

Sometimes she wants to complain to Radowan about not doing enough, but she forbears hasty judgments, trying not to impose Japanese values upon him.

He is living in Japan so he'd better get with the programme. After all, she would be expected to conform to Syrian ways if she was living there. Heck it sounds like she's conforming to Syrian ways even living in Japan.

Sometimes she wants to complain to Radowan about not doing enough, but she forbears hasty judgments, trying not to impose Japanese values upon him. And she is self-deprecating to a fault, some might argue. "Syrian women are perfect at raising children and household chores. From my husband's perspective, I am a lousy wife."

Are they living in Japan now? So he'd better start swimming and do it quickly. Excuse about stress, concrete jungle, being far away are just stupid excuses.

She should realise that it's either here or there. She not having job there or him not having much of a job here. Cost of living is higher in here. If she's true about "Syrian women are perfect at raising children and household chores" and not only self bashing, then maybe moving there would make her life easier. Right now it seems, she did not have too many life experiences, except climbing.

as Kniknaknokkaer said "After all, she would be expected to conform to Syrian ways if she was living there. Heck it sounds like she's conforming to Syrian ways even living in Japan.".

I think she is still climbing mountains, this recluse will leave her to continue doing what she has been doing sense she had two children. She will be a single family mother looking for government handouts. The children well lets hope for the best!

I am all for broadening one's outlook, but this woman seems hopelessly co-dependent. She seems to want to martyr any semblance of herself at the altar of the "other" - be it mountains or men from faraway places.
