If I won a million bucks the mrs. and I would plan it out together.

partnership... it works for what we earn now and it would no doubt work for more money.

if that is how she is, then it probably have been better for him if she DID leave his a** with nothing...

there's no way, it has to be a made up story just to get her on the air... 

who cares what's better for him - she assured her family a secure future. 

love to nibble those micey feet.

    When you KNOW what kind of spouse you have, sometimes it is best to keep quiet.  She might need the money to put him in rehad one day if he relapses.Disapprove

      So I guess, if your wife was a shop-aholic fifteen years ago, and you have some extra money, you're justified in keeping it quite.  Who knows she may want a divorce some day and the man would loose control of the funds.  Obviously, any excuse is a good excuse.  Something that happened 15 years previously over rules any "in sickness or health" clause.  I have to remember that the next time I hear a woman complain about her husband not communicating in their marriage.

      Cheers

        Facts are facts: She is concealing the truth from her spouse which she tries to justify for "his own good". Its a form of lying, plan and simple. Most times *money* in a marriage is a *control* tactic. He/She who has it makes the rules! Regardless of the overwhelming concensus that a drug user surely cant handle money, check your history books ! Betty Ford did wonders for the recovering alcoholics and I didnt see her go out and blow off her family fortune! Although she DID donate ALOT of money to charities and worthy causes. Sorry but I dont underestimate the power of humans to gain help and maintain recovery, especially after 15 years!

            This deal works both ways as I see it

            How many husbands conceal money from their wives?
            Guite a few I am sure. They keep their wives in the dark on what they are worth. What they make etc,etc. Goes on all the time.

              if she couldn't trust her husband with large sums of money... why was she even playing?

              Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

                  When I was at Cherokee Casino once a man sitting next to me playing Lucky 7's poker won a whopping amount of money.  He cashed in and put the money in his pocket.  Later his wife/girlfriend? came up and asked if he had been lucky and he said no.  I couldn't believe it.  LOL

                  I had just lost lots of money on that machine and moved over one seat hoping it will help and he sat down and within 5 minutes won the jackpot.  go figure.

                    Tenaj, some people have all the luck.  Since I don't player POKER but the slot machines, usually when I'm with friends and they ask me if I won, I'm so elated to share the winning experience with them.

                    Here's a story: when I was living on the east coast and visiting Atlantic City casinos (my second home away from home), I met this lady on the bus, whom I didn't know who befriended me, and upon arriving at the casino, treated me to breakfast. 

                    So, after breakfast, we played the slots...when suddenly...I looked around and she was standing next to me.  She told me: "I'm going to walk around because I ran out of money." I reached into my jacket and gave her $50.00 to play with. 

                    Next. I returned to my machine, doing my 'thing'-- looking for my great reward (instead of the one allegedly in Heaven on judgment day) -- when a lady (not my new friend) ran up to me excitedly saying: "look, your friend is jumping up and down at her machine!" I immediately left my machine to find out what the excitement was about -- when my new friend told me she had won $250.00, and if it weren't for me, she wouldn't have won.  I was just as excited as she was, and lo, and behold, she told everyone who would listen that I was the one who helped her out.

                    MORAL OF THE STORY: you never know how or when your luck will return -- whether its onefold, twofold, or fourfold -- in the course of your lifetime. This applies to the lottery as well!

                     

                     

                    See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

                        dphillips,

                        Did the lady return your $50?  I've never thought giving money to other people to gamble would change my luck but just help me lose my money faster.

                          I guess I'll add my 2 cents. I am on the side of those who said she's being a control freak. Even though I understand this lady's fear, I don't agree with her at all. Many years ago I was married to a very irresponsible man and would worry about the same problem...not drugs necessarily (although he liked getting high) but spending it on trips to Vegas, cars and partying.  Yet I found out 20 years later he became a very successful businessman and runs an international company. People change. In fact, I seem to be heading in the opposite direction. Sad Anyway, the one thing I know is that I could never live in a marriage without trust.  I'm not judging her, since she wants to keep the family together. But it does sound as if she has no faith in her husband which is sad. I agree that both men & women keep secrets from each other, but I wonder how she'd feel if he won money and hid it from her. 

                          Anyway, this story probably isn't even true, because couldn't she hire an attorney to set up a trust and protect the money for her children?

                            It may be the late hour that I read this post but, I got a laugh thinking about her hiding 1.5 million pounds around there house.  There getting ready for work in the moring and he goes to grab something out of the fridge she stops him and gets it for him because she has hidden stacks of bills in the compartments.  Sounds like something in a lotto commercial,  that's probably what she wants to be on TV, she missed her 15 minutes the first time around wanted the attention and is now making up a story to get the press interested.

                              Yes NodI sure needed luck with those lucky 7's.  My brothers taught me to play poker. ( I have 10 brothers) but it's not a game I play well or often, but when I go to the casino I like to play poker and blackjack.

                              The card game I like the best is "Whist"  I'm good at that.  But that guy lied to his wife and I'm sure he knew better.LOL

                              And you are right.  You never know how your money will come back to you.
