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: High School Sweethearts Hello Steve and Shirley, My problem is a bit complicated. I have been married for five years, unhappily, but I do have three beautiful children with my husband. My problem is that I am in love with another man, a friend I’ve known since before my husband and I even got together. Problem is, he’s married too. I have cheated on my husband with this man one time before, and I don’t regret it because my husband is always talking online trying to find other people to have relations with. I love this other man with all my heart, and although I am unhappy, I love my husband too. My husband just plays video games all day and neglects the children and myself. I know this other man is a good father, but as I said, I am married. We were high school sweethearts, but we just went down separate paths. Recently this other guy said that he is in love with me, the first time he’s ever said that in the many years that we’ve fooled around. My sister says he’s just playing me, but I really do think he loves me. The problem really is that we both love each other, but we aren’t ready to leave our spouses just yet because we don’t want to hurt them. Should I cut this other guy off, stay friends with him, or try to pursue him romantically? To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here.
