After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came for counselling. 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 she went: Neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of needs.
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 up. He embraced and kissed her passionately, as her husband watched, with a raised eyebrow. The woman shut up and quietly sat down in a daze.
The therapist then 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 I play bridge on Fridays."
