She argues that although the family law dissolved Ie system and implemented western ideal of nuclear family, which values equality, individual rights, freedom of choice, and voluntary unions had changed the children’s expectation for their relationship between their parents, the parents’ expectation for the filial piety (Oyakoko) has not changed.
