At breakfast, my aunt & mother were (again) talking about how I need to find a good woman, and "melt in love" (lol). They then told me about a term (Korean term, don't remember what it was) that is used to describe a wife who sticks with you, thick and thin. I thought all wives are supposed to do that? Funny how they have a special term for someone doing what they're supposed to do anyway. You know, "Until death do us part"?

I wanted to know if there was a similar term for men, who stick with their wives through hard times. They told me that in Korea at least, men don't sacrifice nearly as much as women do, for family life. So there is no such term for men. I guess having to go fight in the countless bloody wars in history doesn't count for much...

Are they correct in modern east Asia? Any east Asian perspective would be welcomed, I know that Korea, China, and Japan are similar enough to be comparable in culture.
