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: Still in Love Dear Steve and crew, I am a 40 year old mother of five. I have been in a relationship with one man for 17 years he is also father to three of my children. Me and this man have been through hell we have separted several times only to find ourselves back together again. We are currently not together and I refuse to be with him because he just cant keep his pants up to save his life but we are still sexually very sexually active with each other. He says that he is in love with me and cant get me out of his system and I say that he is in love with the idea of me. I mean what man would not want a woman that brings everything to the table. I do love this man with all my heart and even though I do entertain the company of other men now I am not sexually active with them because I always feel like I am cheating on him . I told him after the first few years together that we were meant to be together and for some reason I still feel this way but I cant continue to be disrespected with his infidelities what do you think I should do? Let me add that he was a good provider and is a great dad, he is all I want if he could simply keep it in his pants.
