Therapy is an excellent tool to help individuals and couples overcome issues that are too big for them to face on their own. Everyone has troubles in their lives, you know?
While there is no dumb reason to seek help, some marriage counselors have shared the silliest reasons couples came in for an appointment, the straw that broke the camel’s back, if you will.
This Guy Needs A Reality Check
OK, maybe some couples have an assigned list of jobs that each person in the relationship looks after, but there is nothing wrong with helping from time to time. If this is more a matter of him thinking he’s above it, then it’s time for a reality check.
Anyone With Eyes Would Agree With Him
Where do people get the money to call up a therapist and waste their time with what color to paint the house? Obviously, this woman has some control issues. The husband is just trying to save her from making a decorating disaster of their home.
OK, I Get This One
If something has a place where it goes and you don’t put it back in that place, do you not think I have the right to be mad? Is it really that hard to put things where they belong?
It Just Tastes Better
This seems like the kind of thing that this couple should have established before they got married, because it’s a pretty important thing to know about a person. It’s really all about taste.
I Would Stop Trusting Him Too
If the person you’re with woke up one day and just stopped liking cheese for no real reason, wouldn’t you also be suspicious? Either they never liked it all along and are a liar, or there is something wrong with them.
It’s A Delicate Matter
The “leaving the toilet seat up” debacle will be an issue as long as there are different genders and toilet seats. How have we not come to a place where we’ve figured out a solution for this yet?
Trying Not To Judge
What is this thing that happens with men where they think a woman who is all done up is rocking a natural look? You all say you want a natural look, but then you don’t in the end, do you?
Stop Posting Like You’re Famous
Say it with me: posting memes on the internet is not a job! Who does this person think they are? You’re not internet-famous, so just stop already. Pay attention to your wife.
I Can See How This Would Be A Deal Breaker
If you ask for a certain amount of something, it shouldn’t be hard to fulfill that request. Unless, of course, they weren’t specific, then it should be noted that no one is going to read your mind.
This Was Hard To Wrap My Head Around
When in doubt, wouldn’t you just go with both? And why would this be a big enough issue that it would cause a rift in their marriage? How often do they eat eggs?
I Mean…Do You Blame Him?
First off, dogs are all over you when you first walk in the door. Secondly, if my husband was more excited to see the dog than me, I would totally understand.
He Had Other Dreams
It’s really sad to see people who get married for all the wrong reasons. People joke about marrying for money, but then someone goes and does it and ends up hurting everyone involved.
The Never-Ending Struggle
Yes, who indeed should have access to the TV remote at all times? Maybe the answer is two remotes, or maybe even they should invest in two different TVs. That would solve everything.
That Poor Kid
What kind of hipster nonsense is this? That poor kid is going to grow up with a complex now, and any time someone asks them what their name is, they’re going to say they don’t know.
There Are A Couple Of Red Flags Here
I’m pretty sure that counseling an extramarital affair is not something that the average therapist would spend their time doing, but there are clearly some issues that need to be addressed there.
Pro-Boil? That’s Gross
Not to be dramatic, but I might leave someone who was pro-boiling hot dogs. There is no excuse for that kind of behavior. What other weird secrets are they keeping?
How Do You Eat Jelly Beans Wrong?
If I were this therapist, I would make sure I always had jelly beans in the office when they came to visit just to see how he ate them. How can you eat them wrong?!
What A Waste Of Time
Sometimes, a relationship ends just because it doesn’t work. That doesn’t mean that it’s anyone’s fault. This is just petty, and proof that the relationship should be over. They made a good call.
That Seems Quick
Imagine if going on your second date with someone meant going to see a therapist just to gauge where you were at? I tell you where I would be at: out of there!
An Inexcusable Crime
There is no reason on earth good enough to justify eating someone’s ice cream. He was probably looking forward to that all day, and then he comes home to find it gone?!
It Does Make That Annoying Wooshing Sound
This is a prime example of a small thing being a symptom of what is clearly a bigger problem that’s been going on for a long time. What’s so wrong with fresh air?
What A Bunch Of Nerds
If this is the worst thing that you’re fighting about, then you probably have a pretty decent relationship. Until it comes to battles between imaginary characters, that is. But, anything can be worked through.
Haven’t These People Heard Of The Internet?
Stories like this always make me feel kind of sad. What kind of environment did they have to grow up in that this is their reality? This is why sex education in school is important!
Google Knows All
The number of people who will take a Google search as gospel is frankly shocking. Most of what comes up in a Google search about anything mildly medical is all a shame.
What Kind Of Broom Did She Buy?
If he really wanted a certain broom so badly, then he should have gone out and bought that broom himself, don’t you think? We all know the issues aren’t even really about the broom, though.
That’s A Bit Controlling
No one has the right to tell someone what to do with their appearance. If she wants to cut her hair, then she should be allowed to! There is no need to be controlling like that.
Seems A Bit Ungrateful
No one can help what color a dog is born! They just come out that way. If she wanted a certain color of that breed of dog, she should have been specific.
There Are Many Questions
I suppose it could be hard to decide if you’re not even sure what kind of chicken farm you’re going to be running. Do you want eggs? Meat? Friends? What are you looking for?
No One Likes A Surprise Visit From The In-Laws
Maybe instead of being sneaky about it, she should ask why there was such a problem with her husband being around her mom? Seems like a more reasonable approach to the situation.
Gary Is Just No Fun
I couldn’t imagine sitting there and listening to someone tell me that their husband doesn’t drink and that’s a big problem for them. Just let the man live his life!
