The vast majority of married Japanese women quit their jobs by the time their first baby is born. But what of those who don’t? How do they and their spouses manage two careers with baby? Is there a “life” after work is over and the baby is in bed? My interview research at two large firms in Tokyo, one a multinational US firm and the other, a Japanese multinational firm, gives us some clues to the lifestyles of 30 and 40-something married, well educated, female executives with children, and to an extent, the lives of their spouses as well. Data from male execs will also be mined for answers to these questions.
