Three-fourths of household budgets in Japan are controlled by women, the BBC reports, and in many cases, that means the women dispense “pocketmoney” to their husbands. “We’ve decided it’s easier for him to be on a fixed allowance. I try to ease his burden by making him a lunchbox.” That’s a Japanese woman describing why she gives her husband an allowance each week (the clip opens with footage of her giving her husband his allowance). It’s followed by footage of him eating his sandwich alone, and smoking a cigarette, “his only luxury.”
