Do Like the Japanese: This Valentine's Day Scream 'I Love You' in Public

by Yasha Wallin

February 16, 2013

The event was started by a 53-year old divorcee who says he's reformed and with his second wife vows to spend more time with family, less time with work. He started the event because he found it was often difficult for men in Japan to express their love, but this gathering literally gives them a stage to do so.

What might seem like a bizarre and over the top way to express love is actually welcomed by the wives, with one woman reflecting, "It just reminded me of how macho he used to be, a fact that I'd forgotten for the last eight years since I married him. My heart pounded."

So this Valentine's Day, why not scream your love for your significant other—whether on stage or not. If the Japanese can do it, so can we.
