Will Miss #90 - just the two of us

My husband and I have a wildly successful marriage. We're happier being with each other than anyone else and are content to stay home and share each others company. What does this have to do with Japan? I'm convinced that some part of the success of our marriage is rooted in the isolation of living as a foreign couple here (we're both American). We're free of the mitigating factors which can cause turmoil and difficulty in a relationship like in-laws or friendship conflicts.

I will miss the protective cocoon that our relationship has grown strong in and the lack of complications that come from having few demands from outside forces on our relationship.
