Doting husbands of the world, unite!

A group in Japan calling itself the Doting Husbands Association [the site is still in Japanese only] has declared January 31 to be Beloved Wives Day.

The organization was founded by a group of Japanese men alarmed by how shabbily so many husbands were treating their wives. The group's philosophy is simple: Be nice to to the missus—before she leaves you. From the group's website, their Five Tenets are:

  1. Get home from work early [by 8 p.m.]
  2. Create a pleasant atmosphere
  3. Call her by her name [not "Hey, you!"]
  4. Look her in the eye when talking
  5. Watch her reactions
