It pains me to say this, but I think this is excellent advice. You are not doing the wrong thing at all and you are certainly not wrong for having the foresight to rescue your family from a sinking ship. I only wish that Japanese men were so pro-active.
As for me, contrary to popular belief, I really do love and respect my students/friends in Japan. They are the reason that I stay on. Sometimes I even think that I'll be happy to go down with the ship, just as long as I can be with my loved ones.
