Most couples go through hardship, you tend to have arguments and then make up – that’s all part of a healthy relationship. However this marriage takes the biscuit because this man has had the ultimate sulk as he hasn’t spoke to his wife in 20 years!!!

Otou Yumi, from Nara, southern Japan, continues to live with his three children and wife, Katayama, who perseveres in making conversation with him but has only ever received a nod or a grunt in response for 20 years.

The Japanese couple’s silence was revealed by their 18-year-old son Yoshiki, who wrote into a TV show asking them to fix the situation as he had never heard them have a conversation.


Producers set up a meeting in the park where they had their first date. Otou Yumi poured out his heart to his estranged wife.

‘You were so concerned about the kids.

‘Yumi up until now, you have endured a lot of hardship. I want you to know I’m grateful for everything.’

He then revealed what has really left him so miserable.

‘I was kind of… jealous. I was sulking about it.

‘There’s no going back now I guess.’

Well i would just like to ask if we can enter this guy into the Guinness World Records because this amount of stubbornness is worth rewarding, right?
