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 man’s best friend is a back-stabber Dear Steve, I am a 23-year-old woman who is in a relationship with a 41-year-old man. When I met him, he was unhappily married to a woman who left him everyday to attend school out of state. She neglected him (and her appearance) for two years, so I stepped in and gave him the attention she denied him because she wanted to “further her education.” We are in love. They were together for 20 years, but their time has come to an end. He is my man. His youngest son is in high school, so the kids are not affected. She discovered our affair and put him out last year. She kicked him when he was down, he’d just lost his job, and had no place to go except to his best friend’s house because I live with my mother. Additionally, she is violent! When she found out about me, he said that she tried to physically hurt him! A real woman would walk away. So I am sure you understand why he wouldn’t want her anymore. We have been together exclusively ever since. Steve, here is the problem. My man has been trying to figure out who told his wife “The Detective” all the details of our affair. I recently found out who it was–his best friend. Additionally, I recently found out that his best friend and his wife started up a relationship a few months after she put him out. My boyfriend considers this man to be his closest friend and he trusts him with everything. Steve, should I tell my man that this Judas stabbed him in the back?
