Husband doesn’t speak to wife for twenty years!
This was first reported by The Sun, and written by ELLIE CAMBRIDGE.
The father-of-three would talk to his children normally but said nothing to his wife. Long-suffering Katayama Yumi chatted normally to her husband, but he would never respond. He would speak normally to his children and his wife would speak normally to him, but he would not respond to her. The Japanese couple’s 18-year-old son, Yoshiki, wrote to a TV show asking for help with his family’s problem. He told one of the presenters he has never heard his parents have a conversation. His sisters, 21 and 25 years old, also said they had never heard their parents speak to each other. And now the reason for his silence has been revealed – he was jealous of the attention his wife gave to their children!
His father, Otou, told the show: “When the kids were born my wife was very involved and busy in raising the kids. I was kind of… jealous. I was sulking about it”.
Could Family Law Mediation have helped this couple? Mediation has been a very successful method for resolving disputes in divorce and other family law cases (which could include paternity cases, modifications, enforcement actions, grandparent rights cases, and child custody cases) Family Law Mediation may diminish the conflict between the spouses during and after mediation, benefiting them and their children. Family Law Mediation is impartial, it deals with feelings and issues. Each party is given the opportunity to express their feelings and views. This man could have expressed his feelings in a safe impartial environment and perhaps resolved his issues much sooner.
In San Antonio, Family Law Mediation has been a very successful method for resolving disputes in divorce and other family law cases.
