Let's face it.  Lottery winners face numerous problems including divorce, lawsuits, news media, and greedy relatives.  For a single person who wins the lottery prize, marriage is a compromise to the control that winner has over the prize.  Not only that, but how do you know that the legions of men or women who run toward the lottery winner is actually interested in that person for him/her and not because of the money? 

 

I thought about this topic about "The Lottery and Marriage" this morning.  What would you do in this situation?  Would you remain single or would you marry later in life after winning a prize?  What are your thoughts on this situation?

Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

    I just got out of hell by winning the lottery. Why the heck would I want to get back into it?

    Why would I want to have a nagging, pestering wife telling me what to do all day long, when I can have a harem of 20 year old beauties at my command?

      Not sure if one can graduallyWink win a jackpot, but as far as marriage goes, the answer might be in looking at whether or not and why you'd get married in the first place.

          If the Dollars could bring me a glass of water in the middle of the night. I, am going to need a caring hand, and that is not always a paid help! You can't pay people to really care!.... Ask those who are on sick beds with paid nurses, who are rude!

          If the Dollars could talk to me honestly when I need a friend!...Ask Michael who was surrounded by "Yes Men"  and "Yes women"

          If the dollars could sit with me across the table and have a pleasant meal!...Ask those who are rich and sit at  restaurants alone!

          And If I could take the horrible Images I saw on September 11, 2001, where many came to  work all through the night, findind body parts whit expensive Rollex watches still on the blown-off arm! (It was so clear that their money did not save them)

          If I could take it with me!   Then I would remain single (If I was not Married) just to protec the money, I won in a lottery!

          forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

          Now, does it count??

            Winning the lottery has nothing to do with getting married.

            Meeting the right person has everything to do with getting married.

                  My assumption would be if they are "running" toward me, it is for the money.  Now, if they are walking, I'll take my time choosing. 

                  What if I meet a woman that also won the lottery - and further, won more than I did?

                  Definitely, a prenuptial agreement, is needed for any and all possible marriage situations.

                    Only to a woman who was an orphaned only child who didn't know I had won a jackpot.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    Lep

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
