> After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came for counseling.
> When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a tirade listing
> every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married.
> On and on and on: 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, he embraced and kissed her long and 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 3 times a week. Can you do this?"
> "Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on
> Fridays, I fish."
