After just a few years of marriage, filled with constant arguments, Ralph and his wife, Mildred, decided the only way to save their marriage was to try counseling. They had been at each others throats for some time and felt that this was their last straw.
When they arrived at the counselor’s office, the counselor jumped right in and opened the floor for discussion: “What seems to be the problem?”
Immediately, Ralph held his long face down without anything to say as Mildred began talking 90 miles and hour describing all the wrongs within their marriage.
After 5 — 10 — 15 minutes of listening to Mildred, the counselor went over to her, picked her up by her shoulders, kissed her passionately for several minutes, and sat her back down.
Mildred just sat there — speechless.
Ralph was staring in disbelief at what had just happened.
The counselor said: “Your wife NEEDS that at least twice a week!”
Ralph scratched his head for a moment and replied:
“Well, I can have her here on Tuesdays and Thursdays.”
