Massachusetts LotteryMassachusetts Lottery: Mass. postal worker wins $4 million one day after getting married

Rating:

On Thursday, Timothy Sullivan promised his new wife to be lawfully wedded "for richer or for poorer."

On Friday, Sullivan became a couple million dollars richer to fulfill that promise.

The postal worker from Raynham, Massachusetts, won a $4 million dollar lottery prize just one day after marrying his wife Tanya. He had taken part in the "100X The Cash" $10 ticket game, the Massachusetts State Lottery said in a statement.

Claiming the instant prize from the lottery's Braintree headquarters on Friday, Sullivan opted to take $2.6 million — the amount after taxes — in a one-time cash sum.

The newlyweds plan to use the money to go on a honeymoon, pay off student loans, buy two new cars and build an "oasis" in their backyard, according to the lottery statement.

The store where the winner purchased the ticket will receive a $40,000 bonus, the lottery said.

                  Ha Ha, that sucks, I would get the marriage annulled if I were him. Just a day or two earlier and it would have been all his.

                      What a way to start of a marriage! Congratulations to both of them as well as his daughter whom I have no doubt will be taken care of starting with her student loans.

                          Congratulations!

                          As the win was published, he will be unable to remain in his job as a postal worker.
