I want to live a life that doesn't take for granted "I will live together when I get married."

I am currently living in two bases. A lifestyle like starting a business in Cambodia about half a year ago and going back and forth between Tokyo and Phnom Penh about every three months.
The main business is Cambodia. I do Cambodian work remotely in Tokyo, half of which is creating and operating new businesses on the Japanese side.
Is it natural to "live together when you get married"?・・
I felt that the idea was old in this era when women are advancing into society.
I'm thinking of trying to establish a new way of life for myself.

 

Why do I live in two bases?
 

The reason is very simple. Because my husband is in Japan.
However, I couldn't separate Cambodia, so I chose to live in two bases in Cambodia. Of course, it was decided before starting a business, and I am taking this style with the consent of the management members.
When I decided to start a business, I had already promised to have a wedding in Japan, and there was one situation where I absolutely had to go back to Japan.
I don't know how long I'll live this life, but I'm more comfortable than I expected, and I wish I could live like this even if I had children.
 

Benefits of living at two bases
✔︎You can objectively see the good and bad points of the two countries of Japan and Cambodia.
✔︎Easy to balance life work.


✔︎You can objectively see the good and bad points of the two countries of Japan and Cambodia.
When doing business in Cambodia, many of our customers are Japanese, so Japanese business customs are also required, and there are many situations where we think that Japanese sensibilities are important. When I'm in Cambodia, I feel that I'm getting more and more dyed in Cambodian colors, so I think it's rather important to change the environment. That's why I think it's nice to be able to see both countries objectively.

✔︎Easy to balance life work.
Life work balance of the worries of career women.
Living at two bases will give you a sharp impression.
In my case, when I'm in Cambodia, I just work. I don't take a day off, and on Sundays I decide to work outside the office.
Therefore, I changed the house to a room without a kitchen and declared that I would not cook. And I had them clean twice a week and outsource the laundry.
So I live a life where I don't do any housework. So I can concentrate on my work.

On the other hand, when I'm in Japan, I try to cook every day without appointments or dinners at night. (I'm not good at cleaning, so I outsource to my husband. Lol)
On Saturdays and Sundays, I give priority to my husband, such as when he has a schedule, he also schedules himself, and at other times he tries not to schedule as much as possible.
On Saturdays and Sundays, it is a daily routine to work at a cafe with my husband. But I feel that spending time together is different from not spending time.
(I'm glad we were both work-loving people !)

Cambodia: Work Work Balance
Japan: Life work balance
I think that the environment where you can separate on and off is a two-base life.
 

Difficulties of  living in two bases
✔︎The subtle two-hour time difference is confusing.
✔︎After all, face-to-face communication is the easiest to convey.
 



Establishing a new lifestyle
 

"Once you get married, it's natural to live together."
I think that era is over.
Nowadays, the way of working and living is changing.
I think lifestyles and work styles should be diversified.
Therefore, I would like to continue to create my own new way of life.
Separation life will start again after the new year! It feels like I'm practicing while I'm separated. It's time for each other to put their work first and immerse themselves in it.
While valuing such time and the time of the couple, I would like to continue to cherish my work and family.
