I knew a girl who did hostess work. She cried before she went to work, she cried when she came home. She hated it - and the men that came to the bar. She did it for the money, then married a lovely Aussie man who took her away from all of that. Now she's happy.

Every year I wonder how, after seven or eight decades of life in Japan, people do not take heed from the annual death toll and chop up their motchi before eating.
I nearly choked on New Year motchi when I was in my thirties, I chop it now, even though I still have all my own teeth.

On a 1988 tour of Finland, Lemmy was asked by one journalist why he had kept going for so long.
"We're still here," he replied, "because we should have died a long time ago but we didn't."
"Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil. Going with the flow, it's all the game to me."

I sympathise with you completely as I am in a similar situation.
It is not always possible/practival to find an immediate solution.
Very selfish & cowardly of the husband to make another be the cause of his death.

J-hubby puts a pat of butter on steak when he cooks/serves it - it's lovely, so I think this is a good idea - I'd try it.

It seems to me that the woman is fighting the current law, not her ex-husband who may, we do not know, agree with her.
All other arguments aside, they were after all separated for a while before the divorce.

Good point Educator60.
When I bought my bike 4 years ago I took training and was so glad I did - I reckon I'm a much better rider now, in my 50s, than I was when younger. Besides which I now have a sense of my own mortality - something I definitely didn't have years ago!

Just wanted to post your comment one more time because I reckon you hit the nail on the head there!
"People with beards who put on dresses don't have gender issues. They've resolved them. It's the ones who are scared of man in a dress and a beard who have gender issues."

Everyone is different and it depends how fit and healthy the mother is.
My friend - a dancer in her late thirties - had a short labour, gave birth after an hour in the hospital and was home a few hours later, having done some shopping in the way home.
A lot to be said for well -toned muscles.
Posted in: In Japan, women are usually kept in hospital for up to a week after giving birth, while in the West, if there are no complications, mothers usually go home the next day, or even less, as was the case with the Duchess of Cambridge, for example. Why the difference?
