The therapist did her best but to no avail. The old folks were absolutely determined to go through with the separation leading to a divorce.
Finally, in desperation, the therapist said to the husband, “But you’re ninety-five and your wife is ninety-three. You’ve been married for seventy-two years! Why do you want to separate now?”
To which the wife replied, “We haven’t been able to stand each other for the last forty-six years. We thought we should wait until all the children died before we split up.”
