A husband and wife went for counseling
after 15 years of marriage.

When the counselor asked what the problem was, the
wife went into a passionate, painful tirade
listing every problem they had ever had in
the 15 years they had been married.

intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved
and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet
needs she had endured over the course of their

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.”
