A bridegroom would live with his bride's family to offer his labour for a certain length of time.
The practice remains today in the system of adoption by which a man becomes a member of another family by marriage.
Live in Japan and want to have a Japanese marriage?
She is adjusting to a new role filled with duties and might be too tired for anything else.
Also many Japanese wives feel like sex is a duty once you marry.
This is different than in the West where women require the guy to have a level of ambition and flair. If you choose to marry a woman who happens to come from Japan then the dynamics will change A LOT.
For example when she gets married she suddenly goes from having no responsibilities to a list of duties.
Now this Throughout history, Japanese marital systems had gone through many changes along with changes in Japanese social systems and conditions.
The most important and historical change in the Japanese marital system was brought about through the rise of "bushi" warriors in the 13th and 14th centuries.The change from the age of aristocracy to the age of the shoguns led to a change from the old practice of �muko-iri� to the new practice of �yome-iri�.That is, instead of the groom joining the bride�s family ("muko-iri"), the bride would join the groom�s family ("yome-iri") after the birth of a child or the loss of a parent.Chances are you'll have this experience - you'll notice that she was more fun before your Japanese marriage.Once you get married she will switch roles from being a fun girlfriend to a strict housewife who's main priority is 'family'. I also describe the majority of what the Japanese marriage is like. If you're up for it you can mention what I've discussed to your Japanese girl and get her take on it. Since you're a family now then it should no longer be fun. This is different than in the West where people are expected to have a 'fun and romantic' wedding AND marriage.
