Marriage Counseling

A husband and wife came for counseling after 40 years of marriage.
When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate,
painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 40
years they had been married. She went on and on and on: neglect, lack
of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an
entire laundry list of un-met needs she had endured over the course
of their marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of
time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking
the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately. The woman
shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze. The therapist
turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at
least three times a week. Can you do this?" The husband thought for a
moment and replied,..

"Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on
Fridays, I fish."
