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: A fool for Lust Good morning Steve,  I am old enough to know better. But I don’t want to be by myself. I met a man who I liked very much. We started seeing each other for days at a time. He would leave his family and spend a couple of days with me. I fell in love with this man. He would tell me his wife did not make love to him. She did not cook enough and the only thing she did was spend money. This is when I stepped in and did all of those things and more. I fell in love with him and we moved in together. Now I have realized his wife did not make love to him because he was sleeping with me. When she did not cook there was always a meal. He was not home to eat. The money she was spending was to take care of the family, mortgage, food, insurance, car payments, etc. Now I feel like a fool. The only thing I got was a broke man, who don’t have a pot to piss in. He is always mad and misses his family. Therefore we do not have sex and my happy home is a broke down shack. What do I do now that I want to be by myself? I can not ask him too leave, because I also thought the grass was greener on the other side. What am I a fool?
