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 friend’s wife is a cheater Dear Steve and Shirley, My best friend and I have been friends for over Twenty-two years. We are like brothers and there is nothing we would not do for each other — at least that is what I always thought, until now. He has been married for over 15 years and he worships the ground that his wife walks on. They have a beautiful home and two wonderful, bright kids. On the surface, their marriage seems to be perfect, however, I know different. A couple of months ago I saw his wife with another man. They were sitting side by side, in a booth at a sports bar. I walked over and said hello and she nearly fainted. I asked the guy she was with if he knew she was married to my best friend. He quickly apologized and left. She pleaded with me not to tell her husband. I asked her how long this was going on, and she replied that they had been having a fling for over six months. Steve and Shirley, should I tell my friend? He is already asking me why I do not come around that much anymore. I feel that it is not my place to tell him. I corrected her on the spot, hoping she would tell him (which she has not). What is the right thing? Should I keep this secret or tell my dear friend. He will be crushed if I tell him. Sincerely, Confused Friend To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here.
