Ven. Pomnyun's Answer to "How to Approach History as a Japanese Living with a Korean spouse”
Questioner : I have experienced arguing with my husband over historical problems between Korea and Japan. And a few times we almost divorced because of that.
Through the many arguments I realized both have strong [patriotism] towards own countries and different opinions based on the education we have been taught.
And I feel so pathetic to fight over something we can’t change.
What I really want to know is can we resolve complicated and somehow emotional matters due to the terrible history between Korean and Japan? And what can I do as an individual living in Korea, as a Japanese?
