I guess there are some truths which cannot be spoken—even in Japanese.
Third marriage and I have two daughters both adults. My experience says there’s nothing inaccurate about that story. Watched my first wife spend 20 minutes looking at refrigerator magnets, she didn’t buy any. My second wife could spend an hour trying on Scrubs, her clothes had to be perfect. My third wife has a passion for grocery stores and can spend a couple of hours walking around.
I keep my damn mouth shut, not only do I eat well there’s zero complaints about my hunting and fishing trips. My conclusion is it’s either a woman thing or it might just be a Nurse thing since all the above mentioned are/were in the medical field.
