The marriage counsellor 74



View Profile

A husband and wife were experiencing problems after 30 years of marriage. They decided to see a counsellor to resolve their issues.

The counsellor asked what the problem was. The wife launched into a huge, passionate tirade on every single issue she’d had for the last three decades.

He was neglectful, she explained. There was no intimacy. She felt lonely; unloved; unloveable. She had persevered for so long with her physical and emotional needs unmet, but no more. Enough was enough.

The marriage counsellor nodded, got up, walked to the wife and asked her to stand.

Suddenly, he embraced her, giving the most passionate, steamy, open-mouthed kiss she had ever received. It continued for a full minute as the husband watched on benignly.

She stumbled backwards into her seat, breathless and dazed.

The counsellor turned to the husband and said: “Your wife will need this at least three times a week. Can you manage this?”

After a moment’s consideration, the husband replied: “Well I can drop her off here Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays I go fishing”.

  1. So funny but sadly often true. There really are men who don’t comprehend that a commitment to a relationship/marriage actually requires them to do ,ore than just turn up, eat, sleep and be waited on. Thank heavens the young men of today are more educated in this regard and the women are more able to voice the fact that everyone needs to work at making the relationship work or “there is the door”.

    • PHIL I have know many me who act like this and many who don’t. I like to think that they are either being smart as the alternative of really not comprehending the needs of the relationship or thinking this is a smart way to behave and being so insensitive is very sad for everyone. Many older men have never been very good at expressing themselves and many do have this attitude.

      • as you didn’t deny the ‘on your own’ question I’ll assume he was on the money there
