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: He’s lost that loving feeling Let me begin by saying I gave my husband 16 years of my life. We got married young. Nevertheless, Steve, I need your help. I lost my dad two years ago and when I hear you speak you remind me so much of him. I am 31-years-old my soon to be ex-husband is 33. He recently informed me that he wants a divorce because he says I do not trust him. Well, let me begin by saying he has given me every reason not trust him Yet I forgave him. No I never caught him being intimate with someone but he has always tried to leave me for someone else and God has always revealed him. This time he got revealed and he is angry. He has not cheated, as far as I know, but he has been on the internet looking at women and sending them messages. To me that’s internet cheating, and I want to beat his a** with a black leather belt dipped in water. I am so tired of his mess. He lies, he keeps secrets, and he even keeps his phone on silent. He is not a pimp, like he thinks he is. I am a women that cooks, cleans, washes his clothes, fullfills his needs, and make him feel like he is the king of the castle and this fool tells me he does not like that. It makes him feel that I love him too much. He also said he doesn’t love me like I love him, but he does love me and care for me! I believe he is crazy and loosing his marbles. All said and done, I do love him, but I am tired and ready to move on. However, love I have won’t allow me to! So much has gone on and I don’t want to go into all the details, but I do need some advice from you, Steve. You are my radio father, and I listen to you faithfully. Please help!
