People say the happiest man in the world is : To have a Japanese wife, eat Chinese food, live in an English house, spend American dollars. The most unfortunate one is: Eat English food, have an American wife,spend RMB and live in a Japanese house.

RMB refers to Chinese yuan. haha, it sounds the thing in a way, just expressed in a humuous way. American women are more independent than Chinese and Japanese ones, so once they lose heart on him, they can dump him , while Chinese wives can't cause they live partly on their husband. Due to cultural difference, part of the speech can be understood by different people.

I heard it from a student of mine. It is only expressed in a humorous way and has nothing to do with disgracing any country, i'm afaid you are worrying too much. If you can not see the humour in it due to cultural difference , i can not help, see, that's what we say cultural shock. Let me try to explain hope you can understand a little more than before. Japanese is famous for its high price and cramp; American women are very independent and they can dump their husband when necessary, while women in China are partly dependent on their husband. so if a man find such independent wife, he has to worry being dumped if he treats her bad. While China has a long long eating culture, if u had a chance to come to china, u will be amazed at the countless dishes people cook.

Hilarious! But I would like to reserve my comments on 'eat/live/spend' issues - regarding wife, I do not think it is justified.
