          I'm not positive, but wouldn't your spouse have legal rights to half of your winnings if you left?

          Yep and there would be an army of lawyers wanting to represent her. It doesn't make any sense to me to leave somebody they apparently don't want to live with any more and make them a multi-millionaire.

                Why would I need to leave when I'd have so much more free time to spend with my mistresses?

                      Well the spouse told me this before NC got the lottery:

                      If you were to hit the lottery tomorrow...I'd leave your "butt" for sure. You are unreasonable now without the money....I can imagine  you "with" money.

                      Now ....that's LOVE for ya! LOL

                      So now ya'll know I'm out $4 EVERY WEEK!!!

                        Some folks have great relationships, and to those of you I applaud you.

                        And then there are those of us married to psychotic spouses - which most of you will NEVER understand.

                        Here are some examples of my situation:

                        One of our cordless phones stopped working, my wife is SCREAMING at me to fix it - so loud the neighbors here her. The problem ?  She's standing 10 feet from me - inside the house. All windows and doors are shut.   The next problem: I didn't know the phone didn't work until said screaming commenced. Never mind the fact that we have 8 - count 'em - 8 OTHER phones in this house.

                        Two weeks ago it's -8 outside, and she's SCREAMING at me to go chip ice off the driveway.  Driveway is 22' wide and 100' long.  No way I'm doing it.  Yet she screams.

                        Problem ?   She's diagnosed as a manic depressant - and refuses to take her meds.   Oh - and I am the ONLY one she SCREAMS at. Never mind the fact that her kids do NOTHING to help except create messes and walk away (and both are in college).   She screams at ME to clean up THEIR messes.   I laugh and walk away.   I kid you not - they made a mess in the kitchen awhile back - I would not clean it up - the dishes sat in the sink for so long that some of them rusted and had to be thrown out.  (cake pans, etc.) and NO, I did not have any of the cake, etc.

                        So as I said, for those of you in good, christian, loving relationships, my hat is off to you, but don't pooh-pooh those  of us in 'bad deals' where, if we left, our spouses would not be able to survive.  We have very thick skin, and have learned to let things go in one ear and out the other, because the next day our spouse will be a TOTALLY different person.

                          I understand what you are saying, Guesser, and JWBlue said it logically...money plays a big part in every relationship.  However, if the love is strong, then it shouldn't matter.  I know people who have lost their spouses to illness and, if they won $100 million, they'd give it all back just to be with them for a few more years. 

                          Sorry you are going through a lot.  Try to be sympathetic when she's depressed.  I hope you don't have children if she needs medication & refuses to take it.

                          When I was married, money definitely wouldn't have saved our marriage. However, maybe it would have made breaking up a lot easier.  I've known wealthy couples who live separate lives and it works out okay.  One couple I knew well sold their house, each bought a very nice one about 5 miles apart (just far enough for some privacy) and took turns staying at their vacation homes with the children.  Because they lived in the same town, the kids just stayed wherever they wanted - no custody battle.  I'm not saying it was an ideal situation, since it's still hard on young children, but money certainly (not always) can make even an unpleasant situation a lot easier to handle.

                              I can't stand naggers, and that's why I'll never ever get married.

                              When I was a kid, my dad would nag me to death. Maybe I have a complex...lol

                              I'm free, free as a bird, and will make sure it stays that way. Poke

                              The biggest issue I have with naggers, is that if I don't do what they want at that very instant, the world will stop turning. And at the end of the day, every chore was taken care, but it was done on my own time scale, not theirs.

                              I think it's a mental problem for people who insist it be done at that moment, or it could be a power thingy. Who knows, either way, it won't work with me. I have enough problems of my own than to hear some whiny annoying voice reiterating some swill.

                              Trust me, the dishes go in the washer, just not this stinkin second, alright? Now leave me the eff alone, and just go away....lol

                              Far away !
