Quote:
The 15th of each month is a big day for 36-year-old Yoshihiro Nozawa: it is the day he gets paid.

But every month, he hands over his entire salary to his wife Masami.

She controls the household budget and gives him a monthly pocket money of 30,000 yen ($381; £243). Despite being the breadwinner, that is all the money he can spend on himself over the next 30 days.

"The last five days from the 10th of each month are usually the toughest," says Yoshihiro.

Weird. The 20th is payday in Japan.

Also, the wife always controls the family budget there. 30k円 is rather low though, so she might not trust him.

please put this into perspective. How much do you have to pay to have sex with a 17 year old school girl? also: cost of alcohol

Marriage is a crime against Male Humanity.

Three years of what you thought you were getting, followed by a lifetime of miserable slavery.

because all the sources I ever read agreed that paying a 17 year old school girl for sex is a sacred japanese tradition.

And it's not cheap. Whatever made you think that.

And it's not illegal. The age of consent in Japan is 12 or 13.

20

There was one area with a much lower age of consent, and it was *shock* close to where the politicians were.

It's illegal to pay to have sex with an underage girl, so mdeininger basically has it right :

18, odd. I thought it was 20, along with drinking and smoking.
