Posted in: Japanese men share a list of common male woes before and after marriage See in context

As an American woman married to an older traditional Japanese man, I can tell you it's not exactly an ideal life for a Japanese housewife. Maybe it's very different for younger couples, but in my case, since my husband is rarely ever home since he's always "working", I do 100% of the child rearing and housework. I am pretty much a single parent and money is very tight, to say the least. I must endure him coming home from nightly no earlier than 2am. His after hours work includes regular visits to expensive hostess clubs which more often than not he pays out if his own pocket. If I complain, the response I get is this is the way things are done here and when in Rome do as the Romans do. Most of his weekends are spent on work related golf outings too. But this is the price one pays for marrying a Japanese man.
