    Just curious.
    The more glamorized ones occur while abroad. An Albanian is particularly challenged in following the code while living abroad. I remember once it occurred in Deutchland. The guy had shot his wife and it was in the news all over.

    I do not know how the situation is on ground here. Especially in the more rural areas.

    Really people, the problems in japan are not related to ours.
    It's all part of the same overall trend, really. A lot of women have decided that they're basically "too good" for marriage and family, so a great many men have basically said "to Hell" with the whole damn thing and tossed ambition aside in favor of simple creature comforts.

    Japan's case simply happens to be a lot more extreme than our own, due to the distinct factors their culture has to deal with.

    That was the only reason I brought it up in the first place. It's basically a cautionary tale of how far these kinds of trends can go.

    Certain posters just decided to get all ornery about it, which lead to the thing blowing up.

    Why does this fact of employment in certain demographics offend you?

    You like some facts, and not others. Why is that?

    Maybe I misunderstood. Could you please restate what you did mean by that sentence? It seemed to indicate that you believe women receive less pay than men for equal work.

    Oh well, that clears things up. Why though are you complaining about women's choices which result in them getting lower pay than men for the same jobs? That's entirely up to the women.

    They do, in some demographics. That is a fact. However, that does not indicate why I stated that fact, or why that fact is such. People insert ideology and assume causation on top of things people say without asking them.
