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: Is this a sign or what? Hello Steve and Morning Crew,  I have been married for four years now. Since January of this year my spouse have been unemployed. He helped with some of the bills when he received his unemployment check but complained as he paid the bills. I paid the majority of the high cost bills (mortgage, car notes, cell phones, etc.) and never complained. I wanted to know is it me or just my imagination. My husband had a lot of time over the summer being unemployed. On several occasion when I arrive home our 20 years old god daughter is in my home with my husband. Since this past summer, she does not speak to me and only comes over to my home when I am gone and my husband is there. I have checked our cell phones calling list on line and I notice several calls from him to her and vice versa when I am gone to work during the am and when I run errands or work late in the evenings. Also, I have come home early only to find him and her in our bedroom on the bed talking about they were doing homework and only having three lines on the paper. My husband does not know that I am very aware when he is lying because his tone of voice is calm. I have asked him questions about her being in the home when I am not there and he gets very offensive and loud to the point that he try to accuse me of fooling around. Now it is to the point that he tries to fing something to argue about so he can leave the house or he will pace the floor and say he is going to the store to get candy. Now he is employed and has been for three weeks and still wants to complain about paying bills. Now his saying is, “I am trying to get myself together so I do not have to deal with anything. I am trying to save money every chance I get so I can get myself together.” I am a very intelligent woman and I believe that he is drawn to my god daughter and possible having a relationship. Once, I came home from work and took a nap. When I awoke I saw him and her out of my window talking and laughing all close together. When I went outdoors and sat on the stairs they turned their back towards me and stopped. When I walked over and asked them what they were talking my God daughter walked away and my husband went indoors. My neighbors have informed me that they have seen them out doors together in a close way and my God daughter was seen going to my home through the back door 30 minutes after I left for work. Is it me or what? Tell me I’m I right to suspect something with my woman’s instinct. Signed I need more evidence
