“Priorities: A husband and wife go to a counselor after 15 years of marriage. The counselor asks them what the problem is and the wife goes into a rage, listing every problem they had in the last 15 years they’ve been married, and she goes on and on and on. Finally the counselor gets up, goes around the desk, embraces the woman, and kisses her passionately. The woman shuts up and sits quietly in a daze. The counselor turns to the husband and says “That is what your wife needs at least three times a week, can you do that?” The husband says, “I can bring her in Mondays and Fridays, but on Tuesday I play golf!”
