Here’s an article from Jet Magazine (a black tabloid that’s still around I believe), about 60 years ago, not only about black men and Japanese women, but about American men and Japanese women.
It’s funny how some things change but many things haven’t changed at all.
Some nice looking couples deshou? (That Terry is a hottie, no question!)
Anyway, if anyone of you with Japanese spouses (or steadies, or jump-offs) have any thoughts on this, I’m sure people would love to hear some of them.
Y’all know my position (I posted it here), but to summarize: people are people…and though I’ve never marched down any aisles, I suspect, wives are wives, too. By that I mean, you’re marrying an individual (with an identity, hopefully) not a nation. Sure there will be some hurdles, some advantages and disadvantages, some challenges, whether they be cultural or racial or biological or…whatever. But aren’t there always…isn’t life about challenges? So these kinds of questions (do Japanese women make better wives?) always make me a little queasy…
I mentally add “IN GENERAL” to everything I say, think, and feel these days…like dropping aspirin in Champagne.
But, I could be wrong. (-;
What do y’all think?
