Unfortunately many of these generalizations are painfully true. I live in Japan, and my girlfriend is Japanese. Without exception all of my foreign (non-Japanese) coworkers and friends have Japanese wives or girlfriends, and I get to hear about their relationships ad nauseam. Most of these relationships are good ones, but most suffer from at least one of the above-mentioned symptoms.
Western wives and girlfriends have their own idiosyncrasies.
