My husband came to Japan from New York City a month before my arrival. I was greeted by a changed man obsessed with his new life especially the all night partying and new found preference for Japanese women. Old story with Western men, I am told. Also told that 90% of marriages like mine (no kids, I have no job) end up in divorce. Anyone with personal or other experience and advice for a woman who has chosen to try to stick it out awhile, get a job teaching, and developing own social circle separate from our mutual friends? I have been used to the Wall Street Banker hours and late night drinking for years. This is a new obsession. Should I just leave and cut my losses or follow my plan to establish myself, and hope he will eventually come out of it when the novelty wears off. The fact that Japan caters to men's needs primarily and the attitude Gaigin men take toward their situation, like a kid in a candy store to some.....makes me wonder if I am wasting my time. Any advice welcomed.
