Blast from the Past!  This email must have been circulating since 1985.  Made me think of what the ajummas of today must have been like as young wives.

I pity whoever has such a wife. Looks more like an insecure, unhealthy, poorly educated person to me.

My wife is Korean, and I have to say I don't think any of these things fit her.  As the first commenter said I think this must have been circulating in the past as I could imagine these being true 30 or so years ago.  If anything her attitudes are the complete opposite of most of these experiences.  Must be a sign of the times.

If the list was made by one person, it could hardly be as far as 30 years ago, since people didn't start having computers well until the late 1990s. So at best, it's 15 years old. Must be a sign of the times, or a sign of a different social status... Probably the guy picked his wife somewhere on Texas street...
