Considering the attitudes of many American women an Asian wife may be preferable.
Here we go again...
I'm not touching this one.
I wish the article told us if the women wanted to bring their husbands to Japan or whether they moved to the U.S. or Europe.
Sounds like a driver of social change to me. When your women are losing interest in the clan and start hitching up with outsiders, things will change.
This guy is living in dreamland.
Sounds like they have been Americanized already.
Maybe, but that's a huge cultural gap to overcome. ;)
One of the guys once told me that A Japanese man wants a Japanese wife, a Chinese cook, and an American bathroom.
And we try to tell out American wives this and they don't believe you.
Hmmm. Instead of them looking for husbands, they should focus on single men. Heh heh.
I lived there for 9 mos. in 2002-3. To meet more Japanese I joined a badminton group that had several foreign members. Some people just liked to meet and socialize with foreigners, but I was surprised how frank many women were about wanting to marry a Westerner. (I was already married so I probably was able to get a more honest take.)
Sigh... yes... because all American women are evil and Asian women are inherently loving, giving, and submissive. (It's never because they want a green card, is it?)
I wonder if Willie Green would want to put a tariff on an Asian bride.
Interesting ... A new mail-order-bride market opening up.
I'm working on my future Ukrainian bride.
My husband and I are conservative. We have a pretty "traditional" marriage in that I'm a stay-at-home mom and he works full time to support us. Most household chores are divided along the typical gender roles. OTOH, my husband has never and would never treat me like the "maid" or in a subservient manner of any kind. I can sympathize with women anywhere who reject that kind of behavior. If they think they can find respect from a man outside their own country, more power to them.
