The Washington Post recently did a feature on the National Chauvinistic Husbands Association (see accompanying video above), a self-starter group in Japan focused on coaxing its members into treating their wives better. The Association formed in light of the recent change in Japanese law that allows a wife filing for divorce to claim as much as half her husband’s company pension.
We guess it’s no surprise… sense doesn’t ever seem to guide people to do right, but dolla dolla bills sure as hell do (do you think Hummer lovers would be lining up to buy Priuses if they weren’t currently paying $180 a tank?). As lame as we think it is that any hubbies need to “learn” how to be nice to their wife (i.e. call when they’re gonna be late, talk at night, say “I love you” with some genuine emotion, etc.), we do like one thing about the group’s methodical teachings:
The fight mantra.
“I can’t win. I won’t win. I don’t want to win.”
Dude. Now we’re talking.
