A crusty husband and unhappy wife went to see a marriage counselor. The wife was first given the opportunity to explain the reasons for her unhappiness in the marriage. She proceeded to enumerate the many weaknesses, faults, shortcomings, and absurdities of her spouse, laying out in great detail the reasons for her longstanding frustrations with him and their marriage. She passionately explained why she felt unloved,
unappreciated, and unfulfilled. Suddenly, the counselor stood up, came around the desk to the wife, and gave her a long passionate kiss on the lips, all the while enveloping her in a tight embrace. Breathless, the wife sat back down, stunned and dazed. Sternly, the counselor turned to the cantankerous husband and exclaimed, “That is what this good woman needs at least three times a week, every week for the rest of her life!” The husband, unfazed, nonchalantly replied, “Well, I can drop her off here at your office on Mondays and Wednesdays, but we’ll have to make other arrangements on Fridays. That’s my golf day.
