Cultural differences and anime collide at the dinner table 🍚🍱
When cultural differences and personal preferences clash, it can make for an awkward dinner party. That's exactly what happened when a woman's Japanese-American husband requested she call him *goshujin sama* or "my honored husband" at a dinner with his native Japanese-speaking parents. While it's a common term in anime and Japanese pop culture, it's not typically used to address one's own spouse. The woman, who lived in Japan and speaks fluent Japanese, initially refused but eventually realized she was in the wrong and apologized. She and her husband have since come to an understanding, but the incident highlights the challenges of navigating cultural differences within a marriage. In the next section, let's take a look at some of the reactions and comments to this situation.
