Sometimes, it's easier for an outside party to know how to deal with the problems in our lives. One man went to a therapist for help with his marriage, and the results were eye-opening.
One man found that his marriage was not as fun and exciting as it used to be. The spark was gone, and he and his wife no longer lit up each other's world.
The man decided to go to his therapist for advice on how to fix things. It involved taking serious action the man would never have considered. But he decided to give it a go.

The therapist told him: "When you get home, throw down your briefcase, run to her, embrace her, take off her clothes, and yours, and make mad passionate love to her."
Two weeks passed and then the man returned to the therapist's office. "I've been wondering about you," the therapost said. "How did things go with your wife?"
The man said: "She didn't have anything to say, but her bridge club got a kick out of it."

Another woman indeed had something to say about her husband's renewed passion. It happened after Joe and Bob worked together one afternoon on Joe's deck.
When Bob got to Joe's home, he saw as Joe immediately went up to his wife, hugged her, and heard him tell her how beautiful she was. Joe even said he'd missed his wife while at work.

Bob stayed for supper. After eating, Joe complimented his wife's cooking, gave her another kiss, and told her how much he loved her. The two men then went to work on the deck.
Bob told Joe that he was a bit taken aback by how much Joe fussed over his wife. Joe responded that he'd been doing this for six months now, and as a result, his marriage was better than ever.

Bob then thought he'd give it a try himself. So when he got home, he gave his wife a huge hug, kissed her, and expressed his undying love to her. His wife immediately burst into tears.
A confused Bob asked her why she was crying, to which she responded: "This is the worst day of my life. First, little Billy fell off his bike and twisted his ankle. Then, the washing machine broke and flooded the basement. And now, you come home drunk!"

Elsewhere, a couple decided to go on a date night for a change of scenery. It had been a long time since they got out of the house. The pair went to a bar and were having some drinks.
Then, the woman saw a familiar face nearby. She recognized the man as a past boyfriend of hers. The woman opted to point out the old flame to her husband.

"Honey," she told him. She raised a finger to point out the man. "That guy over there has been drinking like an addict since we split years ago." Her husband responded: "Now that's just silly, no one celebrates THAT much!"
