Money is the root of all evil.  Mother sues daughter, in-laws sue one another, husband and wife sue each other. Unless you get it in writing I would not trust anyone, not even if they said they were Jesus Christ himself, unless it was in writing period. I am sorry to say we do not live in a society that honors word of mouth of the hand shake agreements. This is not 50 years or 70 years ago when peoples word was their bond and people lived by that bond. Today no one has respect period. MY cousin won the Pennsylvania lottery in the late 70's early 80's. She worked for Kodak and had moved with them from Queens to Pa. She was in charge of getting the lottery tickets for her office. In those days no one thought of making copies of tickets. On a holiday weekend she realized they had hit./ Now now one would have been the wiser but because she was brought up in a different era she went into work and told her co-workers they won. They shared a 3 million dollar pot and got about 25-30 thousand for 26 years. It did not make them rich but her honor and hr dignity was in tack and she can sleep at night knowing she did the right thing. That is wonderful karma.

    The divorce letter,

    Dear wife,
    I'm writing you this letter to tell you that I'm leaving you forever. I've been a good man to you for 7 years & I have nothing to show for it. These last 2 weeks have been hell.......Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today & that was the last straw. Last week, you came home & didn't notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes, & went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don't tell me you love me anymore: you don't want sex or anything that connects us as husband and wife. Either you're cheating on me or you don't love me anymore: whatever the case, I'm gone. Your ex-husband

    P.S. Don't try to find me. Your SISTER and I are moving to West Virginia together! Have a great life!

    Dear Ex-Husband,

    Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It's true you & ! have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you've been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining & griping, too bad that doesn't work. I DID notice when you got your haircut last week, but the 1st thing that came to my mind was "You look just like a girl." Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can't say something nice, I didn't comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them & I prayed it was a coincidence that my SISTER had just borrowed $50 from me this morning. After all of this I still loved you & felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lottery for 10 million dollars, I quit my job & bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica. But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have a fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won't get a dime from me. So take care.

    Signed, Your Ex-wife, Rich as hell & FREE.

    P.S. I don't know if I ever told you this, but my SISTER Carla was born Carl. I hope that's not a problem.

        Exactly, and someone needed to remind the man that it's the love of money that's the root of all evil not money being the root of all evil.  It's a shame such a long time friendship ended like this but like that phrase goes...if someone show you who they really are believe them. He must have missed some small red flag that his friend would go back on his words.

        I do not make agreement with nobody to split a big lottery win. I buy tickets myself as well as pay for my own lottery games like Mega Million. If I win big, like in millions, I will give everybody in my family enough money like a trust funds so they can't spend it all off crazily.

        Always pay forward, it's a good start in life that make everybody happy.

          yeas, the  " lets spend  money, and if anyone wins we'll share " is a broken deal from the get go.  there is no  obligation for either to spend any money,  yet an obligation to  give half the winnings?  THINK ABOUT THAT.   no, " we'll both spend X$ ea draw and  have the same number of tickets "

          in my time i have had people tell me  how they will share their winnings, people i know almost never buy any lotto tickets! where as I buy  in every draw there is. where is the  equity in that sort of deal? there is none. after hearing it enough i started mentioning the fact they dont buy tickets and im  not interested in sharing their fantasy wins, where are they getting their winning ticket?will someone be leaving it in their mail box? ill keep my winnings and  they can keep theirs. I also  try and make suxk   challenges infront of  as large a  group of people as well, just so   people can get a real look at what sort of ass theyre dealing with....
