Dear Shirley, Steve and Tommy, I am a wife of 14 years. I have been with my husband for 18 years. We were together as young teenagers. He doesn't know that I've been seeing someone else since before we got married. I love this other man simply for the man that he is. When we're together his focus is 100 percent on me. He has a limitless sex drive and pleases me every time. About a year ago, I began a sexual relationship with another man, who I care very much for. I love his company, I love the sex and I feel safe when we are together. My husband and I spend 90 percent of our time arguing, screaming, yelling and slinging insults at each other. I know everyone will say that it's because of my cheating, but my husband has no idea. He's never busted me. It's more about his shortcomings. He hardly works, I pay for almost everything and I don't respect him for that. I love him, but I don't like who he has become. Sometimes I pray that he comes home after I am asleep so I don't have to hear his voice. He failed me. I believed in him, but in all these years he has failed to deliver. His only true passion is smoking weed. Am I wrong for running to the arms of two very successful men? To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here.
