Talking to kids about dating
Because of all that I’ve seen couples who got divorced, even when there were kids involved.
One big problem seems to be the fact that in Japan the man earns the money, but the woman takes care of it!
The man only gets a small allowance every week or month and needs to ask his wife for permission if he wants to spend any more of his own hard-earned money!
Foreign guys often seem to struggle with this system.
Most foreign men on the other hand, have no issues approaching a Japanese woman in English – or even in broken Japanese.
These are just a few theories by friends, co-workers and myself.
I personally know a few couples where either the man or the woman is foreign and I noticed quite a lot of differences in the kind of relationship they have.
