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: My Cousins are Messing with Each Other Dear Steve and crew, I am a young lady put in a situation and I dont know what I should do..my cousin is sleeping with my other cousin who has a wife and four children…she tells me about their sex and how she enjoys every moment with him. But how when that’s your cousin? Everybody questions us and asks me if they are sleeping around, but I feel that its not my place to say so I have told her constantly to leave him alone but she says she cant. He has been messing with her since she was 14. He asked her to be with him but she refused and finally slept with him when she was 16. I hate my family because they sleep with one another and think it’s not a big deal. Should I go and get help for her or let her to continue make a fool of herself by sleeping with this married man? Signed, Help Me
