AFTER just a few years of marriage, filled with constant arguments, a young man and his wife decided the only way to save their marriage was to try counselling. They had been at each other’s throats for some time and felt that this was their last chance.

At the counselling session, the counsellor asked: “What seems to be the problem?”

The wife immediately began describing all the things that were wrong with their marriage.

After 15 minutes of listening to the wife, the counsellor went over to her, picked her up by her shoulders, kissed her passionately for several minutes, and sat her back down. Afterwards, the wife was speechless.

The counsellor looked over at the husband, who was staring in disbelief at what had happened.

“Your wife needs that at least twice a week!” the counsellor said.

The husband scratched his head and replied: “Well, I guess I could bring her here on Tuesdays and Thursdays.”
