Tenaj, no she didn't return the money. Although she won, I didn't expect her to return my $50.00. Nevertheless, as far as luck is concerned, within 6 months I won $4,150.00, playing  the slots at two different Atlantic City, NJ casinos on Monday, February 17 and Tuesday, February 18, 1997. I never forgot that windfall...I even recorded it in my calendar (which I still have).

Finally, I admit -- I got lucky and my luck probably had no connection with my being nice to someone (or was it?)

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

    The Thrill? Loves to gamble?  The addiction of greed? The imfamous envy syndrome?  Maybe the old man isn't the only one with a problem, she being the woman, does a better job of deceit.  The power trip would be hard to turn down.  She holds a grudge a long time, 15 years of hiding her fears - and contempt.  You never caught me with my problem, so I am superior!

    Cheers

        Emily...I always respect your posts and have told you so, but you think that deceit is OK in a marriage? For something 15 years ago? And, don't you think the money could be put in a trust and only a certain amount per year could be pulled out? There are other ways to handle this, but you instead side with someone not being truthful. Why, because she is a woman? If this was a man, I'd love to see your responses. Still think you are nice, just disagree with you wholeheartedly. Expound more than one sentence if you don't mind, love to know where you are coming from. And, if the role was reversed sexually, what would you think?

          Question. Which story do we like the most.

          Women wins 1.7 million pounds. Husband spends it up in less than ayear on expensive living and long holidays in exotic destinations.

                                                OR

          Women wins 1.7million pounds and secures financial stability for her families future by knowing that revealing a tremendous win to a husband whose habit she knows better than anyone else may jeopardize everything that she played for.

          He will eventually find out. Because she has proved.....her lips can be loose.

            I read the other day that 52% of all marriages end in divorce, to me that is an indication of how much a spouse should trust their better half.  If you watch the TV show "Cheaters", you might think it could be even worst.

              That was me that asked that question, not Tenaj.  If I give $50 to a strange lady I don't expect it back either but I do expect to get lucky but not at the casino table if you know what I mean.

                Isn't that sad?  According to the so-called experts, the #1 reason couples fight is about money.  The number #2 reason for arguments is sex. So if you had lots of money, wouldn't that resolve a lot of the marital problems? In the case of the mystery woman here, she's afraid her spouse will return to his old lifestyle, which doesn't make sense if he's been working for all these years.  That being said, I knew a man who came from a very poor family and invested in land in the 70s, got so stinking rich in the 80s that he bought a yacht, a mansion and a couple of expensive sports cars, one being a Ferrari. After that he started drinking a lot and had a few lost weekends (or lost months!)  He cleaned his act up and was still very, very rich because he had invested most of it in real estate in the first place.  When I read his obituary last year, I thought "why didn't I marry this dude?" I know - because of reason number 2.  Boy was he lousy.  God forgive me, but right now if I were a wealthy widow, that wouldn't matter to me in the least.  But 2/20 is such painful hindsight!  Bang Head

                  I happen to love women.  I just happen to dislike hypocrites who say one thing and do another, or change with  the wind.  I dislike TV situation comedy's that make the man the bumbling fool, but portray the women as the senseble person.  When an opportunity arises to to destroy the myth, I stand and express the truth.  People don't like it, but, as every one knows, I don't care.

                  Cheers

                    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?  

                     

                     

                     

                    i agree with all your points.

                        It's possible in the UK because they have no taxes on lottery prizes, so you really can just stick it in the bank without anyone knowing.

                        I was wondering about her paying taxes on the money but that's great if the UK have no taxes lottery prizes. I would do the same thing too because I could see my family changing with a big windfall. Must be nice not having to worry about paying the bills and taking some time off from work. You go Girl!!!!!

                        Don't forget to flip those 6's/9's.

                          Call her a liar if you want to.  Call her a cheat if you want to!  I prefer to call her a very SMART WOMAN!  Yeah, you who disagree with her decision would be ridiculing her when they went broke because her husband used it up on drugs, and the childrens'lives were left in shambles.  Then who would be there to support the children????  The world ridiculed Jack Whittaker and others who made unwise decisions with their lottery winnings.  It is her money and she can exercise the her right to make the wisest decision(s) when it comes to how it is to be spent.  Did it EVER occur to any of you who think she is being deceptive that she might be doing the best thing for her husband and children.  There is no utopia here on this earth.  Get over it already!CrazyCrazy

                              CrazyThis is the battle of the sexes.  It can go on forever.  It's obvious that this woman wanted this man around to kept the family intact.  It's too bad she had to use deceit to do it, but a woman have to do for her children what a woman have to do.  Some women stay in bad relationships waiting for children to grow up or go off to college. 

                              Somehow I feel she thought she would lose him.  It's possible with that much money he would have divorced or left her and the children.
