What a sad commentary on some men in Japan. They are such "workaholics" that they have no family life. " 'Many men can’t put their feelings of gratitude towards their wives into words. Work is number one for them,' the non-profit group says on its Web site, http://www.aisaika.org/."
One would think that in a civilization that raised haiku to the level of an art form, the "Japan Doting Husbands Association" would encourage it's members to use that form to make their affection known to their wives.
