After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came 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 had been married.  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, embraced and kissed her passionately as her husband watched with a raised eyebrow.  The woman fell silent 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?”

The husband scratched his head thoughtfully and finally replied, “well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I fish.”
