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: Married to another man Dear Mr. Harvey, I have a friend that has a terrible situation. I can't really understand it all but here goes. He has been living with the same female for almost 20 years. They have had a relatively good relationship but over the last 5 or 6 years things were a little rocky. Recently, he found out that she ran off and got married to another man that he can't stand. She did not confess this but a relative of hers came and informed my friend of this. When he received the news, she was apparently out of town at a Mary Kay convention. (Notice I said apparently because she was really sending time with the new husband in another city.) When she did return home, she decided that she wanted to spend time with him but would not tell him that she had gone off and gotten married. He spent lots of money on her, knowing what she had done. In the meantime, they are still living in the same house and the new husband is still living out of state. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that my friend did confront his lady friend and she did say that she had gotten married. No reason for her actions was supplied. He, my friend, is still trying to hold on to her and she is still hanging in there with him. What advice would you give to my friend on how to handle this. I hate to see him suffering because that is really what he is doing right now. He really needs some help. To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here.
