Congrats to the young lady and her family. 

If she is 29 and has 10 & 12 yr old kids... she and her estranged husband were *very* young when they got married. And given they way things go.. I'm guessing he will wind up with half. It will be interesting to see which of the two is wisest with their money.

    Radar online has an article about them.   I can't seem to get a link up from my mobile. 

    I hope this is a blessing, not a curse.   It would be a crime to waste this windfall.

              The TV program Inside Edition just showed a picture of her with a blackeye when she was together with her husband. He's been arrested 20 times and one time was charged with kidnapping, battery and domestic assault but not comvictdd or something.

              They said she is now in hiding and he may get half of her jackpot.

              The laws are nuts.

              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.

                Her not doing a press conference makes people want to know even more.  Therefore they start digging i.e. Inside Edition's scoop.  Hopefully she doesn't blow the windfall.

                  Agreed. Unfortunately, he will get his "fair share".

                    Inside Edition aired all their dirty laundry. Domestic violence, assault and battery, kidnapping etc. That is why I love the Lottery. It doesn't discriminate. The lottery don't care if you are black, white, fat, skinny, dumb, smart, pretty, ugly, short or tall. All that matters is you bought a ticket. The winners comes from all social and economic backgrounds.That is what keep us dreaming.

                      I hope this money do not  destroy their lives,they have children to live for. Some people always play the lottery but when they win, they have an enormous amount of money that they are not use to having can ruin them. Twitch

                          Usually if people are divorced, the spouse does not receive any winnings; separated, yes.  Of course, if there are children under 18, he or she must support them. I recall about thirteen years ago, a New Jersey wife sued for half the husband's winnings and lost because they were divorced.  In fact, he hit the lottery after divorcing her 6 months. So, the joke was...she should have remained married to him instead of divorcing.

                          Now, the wife who divorced her husband and won some of his lottery winnings is not the norm. In fact, if I recall, the lawsuit was not in the United States.

                            Well, freeobama, I agree with you -- perhaps, their lives will improve. Sometimes financial stress may cause some people to act foolishly -- domestic violence.

                            If he gets half, there will be no need for him to reconcile; he has his, she has hers. More than likely, he will go about his merry way, hopefully, staying in contact with his kids. I would not be surprised if he was dating before the big news splash. I hope he has not made any more kids.

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

                              Me personallyi I would have waited least 2 months to cash8 the ticket(trust) that way all the curiosity of who won the lottery is dead. You already have the money in a sense now that you have the ticket.just put in a safety deposit box or bank,keep your mouth closed.and just sit down those two months and make plans for your money. But some people. Are so anxious and are surprised when the sharks smell blood in the water.Lao.

                              Note.  If this jackpot winner waited TWO months from now she would have missed the 60 day limit with which to select the "lump sum, cash" option.  [The last time a jackpot winner selected the "annuity" amount (mainly advertised) was in year 2007!]

                              Congratulations jackpot sharing winners! Party
