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: I hate my husband Dear Steve & Shirley, I begin this letter by saying I hate my husband of 12 years. I feel as though he has made a fool of me and I feel stupid. The thought of him makes me sick to my stomach. When he says, “I love you,” I want to say, “kiss my ass.” I am at the point in which I don’t even care to confront him. For what reason? Another stupid ass lie. Okay, you can tell me that he lies to me because I am the one that he doesn’t want to hurt, but at which point does a man realize that he is still hurting me? At this moment, the question is not do I leave, but how do I leave?  This is why I am writing you. I know getting even is not the right choice, but it would make me feel better. I would like your opinion. Here is what I came up with so far: I will set him up. I know he is meeting women that he meets on line in person. He doesn’t even know one of the women he is talking to is me. Do I talk to him first? Ask him what am I lacking that makes him look elsewhere? Do I just get my ducks in a row and walk? What do you think (By the way I would rather put a knife in a print of his profile and put it over his side of the bed, while he is sleeping.)?
