Adam and Eve Go to Marriage Counseling

Adam and Eve have been married for thousands of years, but things aren't going so well lately. He says the problems began when they ate the apple, realized they were naked, and Eve insisted, "I'll wear the plants in this family!" She replies that the only reason she married Adam is there was nobody else available - literally! And so they find a counselor who is very wise and who seems to know everything about what it takes to make a marriage work. In fact, this marriage counselor has a mysterious identity of his own, which Adam and Eve discover during the course of this imaginative romantic comedy!
