    What an amazing idea. I feel like so often, people don't really think of the finances involved in getting married and having kids. It's such a responsibility and it's cool to see a program doing this. It's almost like what we do in America with Home Ec or sex education. Classes will make kids in high school carry around babies that they made out of flour sacks. I don't imagine that Japan does that. I think this is way more effective!
