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: Ready to Go! Hi Steve and morning crew, I have been married for almost 10yrs. I am a stay at home mom with 2 middle school age kids. My husband is a great provider but we have never had the closest relationship. He has an anger problem and through out the years has been violent toward me, and come close to hitting me. I lived in fear even though this was at least 2+ years ago since the last incident until last week. Also, not to long ago I found out that he gave me herpes that he has had since before we were married. I forgave him for everything but I feel he has never done anything to make up for all the things he did to me. He constantly tells me I am lucky to be able to stay at home and I should be humble and appreciate all he has done. I have tried to make it work but my love for him has grown to dislike and disgust. In my heart this relationship has come to an end. Where do I go from here?
