There is a time in every couple’s life where they go into an awkward silence. Such cold treatment is inevitable and usually ends after a few days. But did you know that there are couples who have not spoke to each other for years?
One such couple in Japan did not speak to each other for twenty years!
Otou married Katayama two decades ago and had a happy married life in Southern Japan. Nonetheless, things started to get cold and they stopped talking to each other altogether.
On a TV show, their 20-year-old son, Yashiki, accepted that his parents did not speak to each other but live in perfect harmony and take care of his siblings and him. He then asked the TV show to help him fix this situation.
The channel made the couple go on a date in a park where they first met. The husband sat down after the wife and began to talk while the children secretly watched and listened.
Otou told Katayama that he is grateful for everything she has done for the children and him. He revealed that he avoided any conversation because he felt jealous as all of her attention was towards the children and he felt neglected.
The shocked wife replied that she understands his feelings. At the end, they both agree to work together from that moment and live happily.
Talking about how you feel is the ultimate problem solver. It is never too late to speak your heart out.
