Thursday Special ~ Marital Counselling


A husband and wife went to counselling after 15 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 15 years they had been married.

She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of un-met needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately. 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 three times a week. Can you do this?”

The husband thought for a moment and replied….

“Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I fish.”




This week we have the old spade Frank to thank for our Thursday Special.

      Rummy’s post today actually had nothing to do with engagements or marriage..So you will be tackling this subject tomorrow then? I am out of touch with your topic list.

    Well, if he’s fishing for compliments, I think he’ll be unlucky!

    Anyway, why’s she still putting up with all that emotional frustration after 15 years? Pack your bags, woman!
