Friday Funny: Marriage Counseling and BBQ Piñatas

farmer & wifeA farmer and his wife had a challenging marriage. They seemed to fight every night, so the farmer just got up earlier and worked later each day until he was only at home long enough to eat, bathe, and sleep. This went on for a few months until finally his wife got fed up with it. She told him, “Either we’re going to a marriage counselor or I am filing for divorce and taking half of your farm when I go!”

They next day when the farmer came in for supper all he found was a can of soup, a can opener, and a note that read, “So what have you decided?” The farmer walked outside and found his wife out on the front porch impatiently waiting, and he said, “OK, I will go to see the counselor with you, make the appointment.”

Later in the week the couple left the farm and drove to town to see the Marriage Counselor. After introducing themselves the counselor asked, “So what seems to be the problem?” The wife immediately went into a tirade, listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married. On and on and on she ranted of the neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved, and a seemingly endless list of unmet needs she had endured.

Finally, after allowing her to vent for more than 20 minutes, the therapist got up, walked around the desk, and asked the wife to stand. The counselor threw his arms around the farmer’s wife, embraced and kissed her long and passionately, as her husband watched with raised eyebrows. When he let go of her, the now stunned wife, crumpled down in her chair with a dazed look in her eyes. The therapist turned to the husband and said, “This is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Can you do this?”

The farmer replied, “Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays I take produce to the Farmer’s Market.”
