Every day we feature the beloved "Strawberry Letter
" franchise that is so popular on "The Steve Harvey Morning Show
" heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today's topic: Jailhouse Love
Hello Shirley, Please help me. I have been dating this man who was just released from jail for selling drugs. I moved him straight in my home from jail, even though he has a great family nearby. I have bought all his clothes and have even went as far as buying him a car. But I am also ashamed of him because he has gotten fat and does not work. Due to his felony charge it's hard for him to get a job. I think I have took on more than I bargained for. I work and make good money for myself. I find myself asking why did I settle for this? Should I stand by him and continue to build him up or run for the hills? Some say we women today don't give men today a chance. I am ashemed of myself because I can't tell people the simple truth about anything. I lie about the simplest detail to keep people from knowing the real truth about the situation. And that's because I carry myself on a high pedestal, but went looking for love in the jail house.
