A Japanese man refused to talk to his wife for 20 years even though they lived under the same roof.
Otou Katayama and his wife, Yumi, have been living in Nara, Japan, with their three children.
But in the last 20 years, Otou had not spoken to Yumi, according to their 18-year-old son Yoshiki. Otou responded to Yumi in mere nods and grunts.
Yoshiki and his siblings watched from a distance as their parents spoke for the first time in the longest while.
Surprisingly, Otou initiated the conversation and revealed he was jealous of the attention Yumi gave their own kids.
“Somehow… It’s been quite a while since the two of us have talked. You were so concerned about the kids.”
At this point, their children started crying. Otou went on:
“Yumi, up until now, you have endured a lot of hardship… I want you to know I’m grateful for everything.”
Yumi responded in gratitude, but Otou wasn’t finished:
“I also want to talk after this. I hope we can work together from here.”
