After the ex wife, court costs, lawyers, new partner credit card spending, and the German tax rate he might actually owe some money!

    not sure about in Germany but In the US it's way easier, faster and cheaper to get married than divorced.  may be one of the reasons but geez 8 years? wow

      Should have waited until the divorce was final.

      Winning a lottery jackpot can't be put off until after all your personal business has be settled.

        I think it is just for the wife to receive part of the winnings since they weren't not formally divorced. In case they have children, they have to benefit from their father's winning too. I wonder if his wife is terrible that he doesn't want to share his winnings?
