    Marriage Counseling

    After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came 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 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. Do you understand?'

    'Well, the husband replied, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I fish.'

    OK. What's the point of that story?
    BTW, how much does that counselor charge?
