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: Does My Man Have the Potential to Change? First and Foremost Good Morning ! I have a small problem. My fiance and I are shacking. Yes I am aware that this is wrong, but we share 2 daughters together. He is 42, and I am 36 years young. I have been faithful to this man and will continue to do so. He is a hard working truck driver, and provider for our family. Steve my problem is that he is not affectionate. I sometimes have the urge to lay under him while on the couch watching television. But when I do he will ask me why are you touching me? I reply cause I want too! Then when we go to bed at night not every night but at least every now and then I would like for him to hold me sometimes, but if I even put a leg on him its get on your side of the bed. I am very affectionate so how can I get him to change this just a bit without being so harsh or hurting his ego? And without getting my feelings hurt from lack of affection? I must admit that when we drop him off at work he will kiss me and the girls. I can see him being set in his ways. But does this mean I got to just deal with it. Thank You, Touchy Touchy
