marriage counselor.
     The counselor pleaded with them to patch up their quarrel, but
they were adamant.  "So," said the counselor, "you know the

     That stumped him.  Shrewdly he assessed the situation, then
came up with a Solomonic solution.  "Go back and live together
until your fourth child is born.  Then you take two children and
your husband takes two."
     The wife shook her head.  "No, I'm sure that wouldn't work
out.  If I depended on him, I wouldn't have the three I've got."
