I'm sure that's true but that statement applies to most women on this planet, not just Japanese women. Marriage/relations were always about business.
Let me quote BRIFFAULT’S LAW:
The female, not the male, determines all the conditions of the animal family. Where the female can derive no benefit from association with the male, no such association takes place.
You're wrong. No, it doesn't apply to every country on the planet. Japan is a country with a 50 years late mindset on some things.
In Japan, the husband has to work, the wife has to take care of the kids. It's a shame of the wife works, because it means that she can't take care of the kids properly. It's a shame if the husband doesn't work enough (meaning:all the time), because it means that he's not providing as much as possible for his family.
It's usual for Japanese father to not see their kids at all during the week, because they're supposed to go to work too early and come back too late to see them. Usually, the wife will leave some food for the husband to eat alone when he comes home. That's normal, and that's what they learn. So most girl don't even think about having a carreer or being independent, they just want a rich husband who will work while they focus on the kids. The husband himself doesn't matter, the wife herself doesn't matter. They have an expected role, they need to do it, like robots.
You will find that kind of women in Europe and US, but it's s'a minority. Here, it's the default thinking, it's their education.Last edited by Faelco - on 17 October 2018
