Ronin_S: "The okozukai system is part of a broader Japanese financial culture where families often save huge amounts, particularly when times are bad. The result has been an economic disaster..."Uh, how is it a disaster that families don't fritter away their money until they're in debt and suddenly there's a financial emergency? What kind hack writing is this?
xaldin: Fear of this is part of why I dictate the finances in the family. If I made it, I decide how to spend it. Now in fairness she makes the decisions about her income. We both have an allocation of what we are minimally responsible for and other expenses are negotiated. That said, when I want something (typically games/electronics) I get them, and nobody gets a say in the matter. I simply could not fathom living in an environment where I was told how I had to spend or not spend money that I made.

super_grass: Japanse men move out of mom's house only to be married to a young version of her. Those poor, poor bastards.
