Strawberry Letter - "Subject: I'm Married To Three People"


Dear Steve and Shirley,

Greetings from the dirty south. I have this dilemma that I've dealt with for twenty one years and I finally had enough. My problem is that I'm married to three people my husband, his single sister and his widowed mother. He can't do anything without his sister’s and his mother's advice. He talks to them about our marriage our children and our finances, probably our sex life too. He talks to his mama as if he doesn't have a wife and four children at home. Any argument that we have he calls his sister and gets her opinion on it and yes of course they hate me because he plays the victim in every situation. He's always available to help his mom and sister out whenever they call him and he will do what ever they need him to do often leaving me to run our home alone with the kids. When he's home with us, he spends most of his time on the couch watching cartoons. I know this is not right and I sound crazy for dealing with this for so long. I should have dropped him off at his mom's house a long time ago and let them be one big happy family. I value your advice Steve. So give it to me straight. What should I do? How can I get this grown man to stop being a mama's boy?
