You're right danyo, I've seen terribly tragic things happen to people who've done things like that.

I don't wish that on her but she won't escape the rebound from that anymore than she'll escape gravity.

It's natural  balance.

If that were true a piano would've fallen on my supervisor's head a decade ago. That sonofabitch is happier, healthier, and richer than ever.

No balance there at all.

"...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

    It doesn't necessarily happen overnight and it won't necessarily be apparent to you but whatever is warranted will come to pass.

    There's no avoiding it.

      She leaves the guy for another guy and surfaces ten years later after he wins the lotto, after he had said he'd give her $1.6 million, that really STINKS.

      If ever there was an example of why winners should stay anonymous, or be allowed to stay anonymous, this is it!

      Hard to stay anonymous with the lifestyle change that $90 mill brings. No doubt that at some point the daughter would have passed on the news that dad was suddenly loaded.

      At any rate, during "discovery" he'd have been required to list all his assets & income under penalty of perjury. ... 

      Besides, if the judge is getting a -- or some Naughty -- cut ... Smash

        I did not know it was an insult to be a liberal. I thought it was just two different parties with two different ideas on how to run the country. You learn something new everyday.

        As long as liberals continue to be the "Blame America First" crowd and think it's the right thing for our liberal President to go around the world apologizing to every brutal dictator and tyrant for what liberals consider the "wrongs" (freeing subjugated and enslaved people) and "atrocities" (Hiroshima, Nagasaki) we've committed, then yes, it's an insult to be called a liberal.

        As long as liberals support the federal government controlling every aspect and detail of our lives under threat of fine and imprisonment, then yes, it's an insult to be called a liberal.

        As long as liberals support the government enacting burdensome laws that only apply to us and not them, then yes it's an insult to be called a liberal.

        As long as liberals continue to vote for the very people who are destroying our Republic because of some perceived, selfish, personal gain for themselves, then yes, it's an insult to be called a liberal.

        As long as liberals are so naive as to believe that people like Obama and Reid and Pelosi have the best interests of America at heart, then yes, it's a major insult to be called a liberal.

          Why must you blame liberals for all the injustices in the world?? Not fair!

          If it looks, walks and quacks like a duck...

          It's usually a duck.

              Whatsamatter grovel, welfare check run out before the month did?

              Gubmint cheese all gone already?

              Still mad the Tea Party threw your liberal Blanche Lincoln out on her keister?

              If nothing else you're typical, grovel.

              A typical liberal.

              Feel free to continue your whining and namecalling now, you're dismissed.

               

               

              PS. grovel is the perfect name for a liberal like you and all the liberals who represent us on the world stage. I'm sure you don't know what grovel means, so look it up. I'm quite sure you've been doing it (groveling) all your life. All liberals do.

                This is just like the people that barely graduated from High School expect to get benefits from the confiscatory taxes on people that have worked hard to become "wealthy"!

                They have divorced themselves from the opportunities available to them from the hard work of Higher Education (any education beyond high school) and think that they "deserve" to be rewarded for another person's hard work!

                  Reading things like this really ticks me off, talking about an unbalance.  Why should she be awarded any of that money?  She left him ten years ago and for another man; thats a double slap in the face to Nigel, the guy got his woman and his money. Out of maybe 45 million 3.2 isn't alot but let that man provide for her, the money should have been put into a trust fund for the daughter. 

                  I pay my bills with lottery money - I get it get it!

                    This situation could have been avoided if he had gotten a clean break agreement in his divorce settlement.  Even in this country a divorced spouse has a right to share their ex-partners pensions and other monies earned later in life if they don't sign such an agreement when getting a divorce.  If he wasn't working at the time and she had a job, it probably didn't seem important to him.

                    Before I retired I was surprised to learn from some of my young co-workers who were getting divorced that their exes would had a right to collect part of their pensions and other monies later in life if they didn't get a clean break agreement during their divorce which usually could cost them a lump sum of money but their lawyers advised them it could be cheaper then than later because they had no idea what they might be worth in 30 years. 

                    Cases like this demonstrate the value of their advice, it the law in many states and countries and has nothing to do the the liberal or conservative beliefs of the judges.

                      time*treat,

                      Yeah, if you flaunt it.

                      Just more proof that "the more you flash, the less you'll keep of the cash".

                      I don't know what the English laws are, but I'm sure there are people in the U.S. who have won a jackpot and no one else knows about it.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

                      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.

                              This is true RJOH...my sister's girlfriend is waiting for her ex husband to retire and than she is going after half of his SS.....I think that is just terrible that the laws can let someone who worked all his life and re married and than the ex can turn around and do something like that to him....GREED....that's what it's all about.....now this man can't really enjoy life cause he will probably have to take a part time job to just survive....terrible...just terrible....

                            And you want to know the real kicker in this is...she is even keeping track with SS to see if he has retired yet...and SS tells her if he has retired or not....where is the privacy that we are suppose to have?????

                              They have gotten so insane with the multi-cult and pc in the UK that now if you are Muslim you can have disputes like this settled under Sharia law if that is what you desire.  I think this guy should have temporarily converted to Islam and demanded that this case be tried in Sharia court.  100-1 says this b***h would come away from there with not one thin dime.  OH, the irony of it all would be soooooooooooo sweet on so very many levels!
