It's all about luck. I hope the couple doesn't get financial problems down the road. Congratulations to the couple who won Lotto South.

    I decided not to mention I play the lottery any more. I get very strange looks and people often tell me it's a fool's game. So I'll wait until I win and then this fool will be the one laughing. It's nice to read a story where the winners say they plan to retire right away. So many people say they'll continue to show up for work which doesn't sound believable. This man has worked 32 years at a mill and he's 49 which means he's been there since age 17.  I think he deserves a vacation! Good for them. Hurray!

     "I subscribe to Baristas' commentary. If your not going to be supportive during the play then dont expect to get the pay!. Unfortunately the laws are such that the spouse still gets half.."

    I disagree with that comment. That type of thinking is petty. Marriage is about compromise and respecting each other. I don't believe there is a single word in the subject article where the husband even hints he's reluctant to share the money with his wife or is planning a divorce, so "the spouse still gets half" makes no sense here.  They both worked for the money to pay their bills. When 2 people are married with a family they share a life together, share being the key word here. I'm sure both of them are thanking God for their good fortune.

      justexploring- Glad we can disagree respectfully. I stand by my opinion. :)

      Bottom line- This gentleman is  fair and definitely a kind soul to share with his family.

       Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

        It's just not fair.

        I ignore everything my wife says and I never win anything.    Crying

        With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

                          In futility.

          Marriage is always about compromise - unless the wife has an opinion.  Then it about doing what she says.  Otherwise you're not compromising.  Communications is always a requirement, unless yoiu say what you really feel; then you're being selfish.  Getting along is always taking her feelings into consideration, if she doesn't want to go to the bar, she suddenly has the right to have some freedom.  It's amazing how it works.  There is Utopia, then there is the real world.  Depends entirely on who you want for dinner.

          Cheers

            Mmm maybe that's why I haven't married again (Hurray)! Compromise doesn't exist in any relationship, unless someone wants something! I guess I'm selfish, because I'll always tell it like it is! But I do give most people a chance to back out of whatever it was they had just asked, if I know what I was about to say could really hurt their feelings! And you know what, Most don't back out, they want it right between the eyes! And that's what I give them! But after that, they know not to ask my opinion unless they already know where I somewhat stand on the subject! Like I've said here before and I'll say it again, I shoot from the hip, I don't pull punches, I don't beat around the bush and I'll never sugar coat anything for anyone at anytime, so take me like I am or don't, it's their choice! I live my life that way everyday and that's my choice! I don't wear masks like most people do. Yes, most people have one mask for this group of friends and another for that group of friends. That's not being true to themselves nor to their so called friends! What's the matter with those people who wear the masks? Their afraid if most people see who they really are, they'll shy/run away from them in horror. Because in reality they are two different people but still the same and that scares the mask wearers to death! 

            Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

              My husband used to rag me about playing mega millions and powerball. I used to tell him the $4 dollars a week I spend on the lottery is much less than the $40 a week he spends on cigarettes, that didn't work so I told him if he didn't want a share of what I won I could always give half of it to my Mom. I won $10 and gave $5 to Mom now he askes if I have my ticket or if I need him to pick it up for me. Yes, I know it wouldn't hold up if it was a large amount but it was fun.

                Nice more fiona$ - a wife with a decent sense of humor is a luxury.

                Cheers

                  I bet he won't like the new Lose for Life game. He needs to concentrate on MM/PB now.
