    You know the old saying...Beauty's only skin deep. There's more to a relationship than the superficial aspects my friend. :nono

    Although I'm thoroughly sick and tired of hearing about "carbs this, carbs that..blah blah Atkins, Schmatkins"....I get most annoyed when people say he died as a result of his own diet.
    His diet is a fad. Enough said.

    I'm guessing that maybe Yuki had some rebellion against his parents (actually, to be specific, obviously his FATHER, since he's very traditional-seeming with how he treats Mom) and became Mr. Assimilation. He went looking for a blond Southern white woman in his neck of the woods (in a restaurant where she was obviously a waitress, the bio suggests) and when he met one, bought right into it. I'm guessing that Tammy, despite her witch-like interior, was probably a decent looking woman on the exterior when he met her--she's certainly not hideous even now--and that may have been all that was necessary.

    It's normal for a new group to assimilate into a new country. That's always been history.
    How do you know Tammy only married for money? Maybe they both madly fell in love. Her husband said that he loved her management and determination.

    BTW, I live fairly close to Dallas and I got a kick out of Tammy's wide eyed look when she realized where the Biggin's family lives. Many of the south Dallas neighborhoods are old and well, ethnic... and Tammy didn't seem very comfortable with it! Too funny!
    I think it'll be a bigger challenge for Tammy to fit into a more posh city like LA or New York.

    The Biggins can sell their old house. What I want to know is where can you get a brand new house with a down payment of $22K? Here, the average house requires a minimum down payment of almost half a million.

    Tammy seems ok, but maybe she needs to think before she speaks.

    And who plays country music at parties?? I will stick with trance, pop, jazz, or classical (depending on the party), thanks.

    That 22k would be a 10% down payment on a very nice house in the south and most of the midwest. By nice I mean 4-5 bedrooms with 3-4 baths with an acre or more of land and maybe even a swimming pool and hot tub. Outside of a few large cities with lots of suckers willing to overpay it's easy to get a nice house for that.

    There are benefits to living in a big city as well. If you are able to pay for it, why not?
