In most countries, people have to pay money for water at restaurants. Those who live in such countries know the value of water.
Nevertheless, Japanese people don’t realize this value because water is absolutely free in Japan.
I would like to introduce similar situation.
Typically in Japan husband don’t say sweet words or express his love and affection to his wife.
Why not? They think that having a wife is completely free.
Let’s say they would have to pay for it. They would realise the value of wife.
Imagine we had to pay money for the air, we would realise the value of it.
You know: ‘There’s no such thing as a free lunch.’
