Hello Mr. Harvey and everyone. Thanks for your book, it was great. I wish it was available years ago. Anyway, here goes: I have been married for three years to a truck driver. I dated him a year before we married. He came home regularly, handled business, and paid the bills at first. For the past 13 months, I have had to hold down the bills by working two jobs. My part-time jobs are cutting back my hours and things are slowly getting behind and cut off. I have told him this, but I have not nagged or bitched about it. He has sent very little money home and he is not coming home as much. He says the loads are few and not paying well, and that he is not coming home because he is trying to get what he can, when he can. I remember reading in your book when you made $125 a week and you sent $75 home. I am not getting that. You said in your book a man provides for his family. You also said a man has to know that his woman has his back. I have had his back for 13 months. I need his help. When I see him he hasn't lost any weight. So he is eating well. Hell, he has gained weight. Do you think he is being straight with me about money or is he taking care of something else? I need your answer on how this man is thinking. If you do not read my letter on the show, would you please give me your answer by email. Thanx A Million!
