Ok, this is a new one for me

by Scott

So I have this app on my phone that periodically posts funny pictures. I like to look at it from time to time to entertain myself.


One day my wife was on my phone, with my permission, and she looked at it. There was a picture on there of a busty woman with some sort of sexist remark as the caption. I have not seen this picture so I cannot describe it further. Well, she is upset because, in her words, "it's like I caught you with porn!"

Yes, really, that is what happened. I even played along and apologized and such to avoid a fight over something so trivial. She is still very upset, and I made it worse when my frustration got the better of me and I said "well I didn't even do anything!"
Please help...I don't know how to cheer her up.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
