Having been married for thirty years, a husband and wife seek counselling
Having been married for thirty years, a husband and wife seek counselling.
When asked what the issue is, the woman launches on a diatribe of all the issues they have ever encountered during their years of marriage. She goes on and on, listing all the unmet needs she has experienced, including abandonment, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, and feeling hated and unlovable.
After tolerating this for a long list of unfulfilled demands, she has now experienced relief. After allowing this to continue for a significant amount of time, the therapist finally stands up, circles the desk, and, after inviting the wife to stand, he hugs and kisses her deeply and passionately as her husband watches with an eyebrow lifted.
The woman stops talking and settles down softly, appearing confused.
This is what your wife needs at least three times per week, the therapist tells the husband as she turns to face him. Could you handle this?
On Mondays and Wednesdays, I can deliver her here, but on Fridays, I go fishing.
