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 marriage is a mess Steve, My husband and I have been married for 5 years. We have been trying to become established (home, savings, etc.). He went through a period of not keeping a job. I was working, going to school full-time and we had two children at the time. He cheated on me stating the reason was because I was not pleasing him sexually. Me, being immature, at the time cheated on him, and I have cheated on him 5 times since then. I have no emotional ties to the guys I cheated on him with and I actually told him everything in the event that we could work our marriage out. He cried with me stating that he would never leave me and we were best friends and could make it through anything. Well apparently he has not forgiven me and it shows in his behavior. Although he states that he has not “physically” cheated on me, he has, in my opinion prepped females. He gains their trust by compliments, comedy, etc. He also was about to sleep with my best friends and they both said that they stopped before penetration. I know what I did to him was wrong in the beginning, but I thought that working on our problems was what we were doing. He was secretly getting revenge. Now we are separated and he wants to clear his head, but he is talking to more females but tells me he only wants me. I feel like I am at a dead end road. I want my marriage to work out because I know that is the right thing to do, but this is getting to be too much! To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here.
