The conversation goes like this.
“What is the big deal? Why can’t she deal with it?”
Says a 42-year-old married client of mine.
“Can’t deal with what?” I try to elicit details.
“Look doc, when we go and eat out, no one says we are being unfaithful to our kitchen.”
“Am I a kitchen?” The wife shouts.
“He’s just drawing parallels, he may not be right, but let him complete his part of the story.” I pacify the wife, returning to the husband.
“It’s not like I do it daily. Even that is allowed in certain situations when the kitchen is not available.” The parallel is obvious now.
