Do any of you know any facts about Japanese culture? Do men there reallyhave a right to hurt their wives if they disrepect them and it is just a part of how they are taught?
I am American (African American) and my dh is Japanese. We live here, but he is very proud of his culture as I am of mine. We raise our children with both. I have no issues with him being the head of the house or having the final say so in all decisions and everything. But when he gets upset or feels as though I have disrespected/embarassed him, he does punish me. Whether it be screaming and scaring the crap out of me/reducing me to tears or physical when it is all said and done and it comes up the next day it is always "that is just how I was always taught in my country. I'm sorry, but life could be much easier if you stayed in your place. "
No this is not an all the time thing just in the case when I "step out of my place into his"...

No way in hell. Culture or not that behaviour is outrageous and NOT ok.
