After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife went in for counseling. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they have been married.
On and on and on she shared about: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable. An entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured.
Finally, after allowing this 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 as her husband watched with a raised eyebrow.
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?"
"Well", the husband replied, "I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays... I fish."
