unnamedThe program reported that the divorce rate in Japan has increased this year for the first time in five years, saying that the major reason for the surge is said to be moral harassment by wives. The program said an NHK survey found that although 48.2% of husbands are “scared” of their wives, about 67% of them don’t know why their wives are angry. While the number of double-income households is now higher than households with full-time housewives, the average working hours of husbands remain long at 8.5 hours a day, allowing them to spend only 24 minutes on housework and childrearing. Meanwhile, wives spend an average of 4 hours and 12 minutes on housework and childrearing. The program said a strong sense of “inequality” is believed to be the source of wives’ frustration, and reported on differences between the brains of men and women.
