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: Husband Cheating with a Friend I caught my husband having sex in our home while I was ill with a person who I thought was a friend. Their affair had been going on for some time but I was unaware of it. She came to my home several times to spend the night because she was so distraught about her divorce. I soon found out that her distraught turned her into my husbands mistress. When they were caught, I asked him if his fell on the floor and his penis landed between her legs. Her comment was, “I just couldn’t help myself.” They have sex in places where I was present at her high school reunion, which she invited us to as her special guests, and at a timeshare condo. When I asked both of them to get out of my home, she went to my living room and sat down as if she was waiting on him. I asked him to get out of out home he refused. Her story was that she couldnt help herself. He claimed because I was ill with a stomach tumor, high blood pressure and breast cancer that he was not getting as much sex and attention that he needed. Well, now that he realizes the consequences of his action, he wants to get therapy and do whatever I want him to do to stay together. Why didnt he think of all these things before he was caught?
