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: Which man should I choose? I am a 48-year-old female and have been in a 12-year-long relationship with now 35-year-old who has slight mental disorder. He is limited in what he can do for work and receives funding for his condition, which is not enough to compensate me, his daughter and himself. I have met a man who has a career. He makes almost 90K-a-year and he wants a permanent relationship with me. I am having trouble choosing which man to be with. I have a 12-year-long investment with the man who has the slight disability and I love him, but I need to be taken care of now in my life. I do work and I make 30K myself. I know I can’t choose money over love but please help me decide. Is there an exception in my case?
