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 cheating husband Steve, I found out my husband was cheating the day after our five-year anniversary. At the time that I found out he had been in an affair that was a year and a half. Not only had these affairs been sexual, but he had been dating at least three other women. Of course, I was hurt and furious, but I stayed thinking things would get better. Needless to say, they did not. When I say my husband DATED other women I mean just that…dinner, movies, ball games, etc. He showed no regard for me or my feelings in parading these women around town. No one ever saw him, so he was very slick with it. I only found out about the affair when he changed cell phones and left the old one laying around with email conversations still on it. After waiting seven months for him to get his act together, I have finally moved out of my home and I am seeking divorce. However, I feel terrible! Fact is my husband needs me financially and I feel terrible about leaving him in a bind. Why am I feeling this guilt? Now, I won’t pretend that I was a perfect wife, but I was not the one that cheated. I’m looking forward to moving on with my life, but I still worry about him.
