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: Leaving him for good Hello Crew, How are you doing today? Well let’s get right to it. I have been married for three years — they are the worst of my life. I have already made a choice to leave my husband and the way I’m going to do it is going to be cold as hell. Well first let me tell you why I’m leaving. He has cheated on me four times…that I can count. And one time he had the balls to ask me to move in with him and the woman so that we could be one big happy family (He must be crazy!). Well I have had enough and I’m ready to go. The only reason I have stayed this long was because the rent was cheap and it made it easy to take care of my boys that he does not do a thing with, except for put them down and bully them around. I saw the preview to the movie “N-Secure” and this movie is all about him. He has issues that have nothing to do with me. I have a good job. I’m going to leave to get away from this man. He always threatens to kill me if I leave him and that’s why I leaving him with a plan to never come back. He does not make any money. If I were him, I would be nice to the one that gives me health insurance. But no, he still treats me like dirt. His own family doesn’t associate with him because he is a dog. My plan is to act like I’m going to work and have my stuff packed. My kids and I will get on a train and never come back. But before I leave, those divorce papers will be filed. I will get the last laugh on him.
