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: Just a dream? I am a 57-year-old woman who has been in in a relationship with a 70-year-old man for six years. Hes been divorced three times and is enjoying his life to the fullest, doing what he wants to do for the majority of time. He brings out the best in me. He is my best friend, my soul mate and my great sexual partner. I have never been introduced to his family members, even though we talk about them and we share our problems. Steve and Shirley, what is wrong with this picture? He met my family, but never spent time with them. Am I holding on to a dream (marriage) that will never happen? Am I — at my seasoned age — just bottie call?
