This morning's Asahi news flash is that 40% of married couples polled speak to each other 30 minutes or less a day. Hmmmm....anyone see a connection here to the ongoing decrease in childbearing rates?

This article seems to suggest that for younger Japanese couples, bodily aesthetics are changing. Girls are getting more muscular and guys are going for "cute." Comments?
