Japan: Cheating! With a Prostitute? Oh, It’s OK Then …

Family law varies from state to state and, of course, country to country. One example of a nation with substantially different child custody laws, for example, is Japan.

And that’s not all. In Japan, a wronged spouse can sue for money damages the person who cheated with their spouse. This is intended to bolster the sanctity of marriage.

It seems that wealthy Japanese Husband regularly engages the services of a bar Hostess (a classier version of a prostitute) …over a seven year period.

Wife sues Hostess for damages resulting in the end of her marriage.

Japanese family court judge dismisses Wife’s case though, ruling that sex with third parties for money isn’t really an affair and does no harm to the marriage.
