Marriage Counselling

A husband and wife go for counselling after 15 years of marriage. When asked what the problem is, the wife goes into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem the couple had in the 15 years they'd been married.

She goes on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of the unmet needs she'd endured during the course of their marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist gets up, walks around his desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraces and kisses her passionately.

The woman shuts up and quietly sits down as though in a daze. The therapist turns to the husband and asks, "This is what your wife needs at least three times a week. Can you do this?"

The husband thinks for a moment and replies, "Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I fish."
