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: Sex with my ex Well, I was in a marriage for eight years to a man that was emotionally and verbally abusive and very possessive. As time went on I divorced him, but i still loved him. I’ve been divorced for 5 years now. I still see him sexually and I think that’s what’s keeping me attached to him. The problem here, guys, is that I met and married another man that is good to me in every way, but the sex in the bedroom is dead. I still sleep with my ex because he knows me in and out. He tells me he still loves me and wants me back home and that he’s changed. I’m still so in love with him, but I’m scared that if I go back history will repeat itself. I’m afraid to leave the good man I have to go back to a maybe still abusive ex, but I love him. What should I do? Signed Life is confused and screwed up
