(Make the appropriate male/ female substitutions where you want here, guys tell the story one way, females the other):

A woman is in a bar near Wall Street. (Wait! It's near Wall St. so we'll call it a tavern.)

In walks a guy dressed in a very expensive suit. He sits near her and orders a drink. He asks her what she's drinking and she notices his $10,000 Rolex.

He has the bartender give her a drink, they make some small talk, and then he says, "Would you slep with me for $1 million?"

She says , "Of course."

He then says, "OK, we've determined what you are, now let's negotiate the price."

The title of this thread made me think of that story because the OP seems to hint at seeking out a jackpot winner.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

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.

      @ Coin Toss

      Very old, sexist joke.  (although I do not see anything funny about it)  Why is a woman "what you are" and a man is not?   Most men will say yes for free! 

      Thanks, Pac.  At least you're honest.

        Lets say they hit a 160 million dollar jackpot.

        Would you marry a MM/PB Lotto winner even though you were not physically/emotionally attracted to him/her?

        Or  if the winner wasn't your type or just somebody you normally wouldn't  have a relationship with.

        Even if the winner wanted to be with you so bad.

        Please be honest and  explain why/why not.

        I always feel like too much detail is left out of these type questions.... or maybe I'm a lawyer at heart.Big Grin

        How long would you have to stay married? (K-Fed?)

        How long will this person live after the 'I do's? (Anna Nicole, anyone?)

        In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.

          Sun SmileyWell to be perfectly honest....I might give it one hell of a try....when you are poor most of your life...something like that sounds awful tempting....money has a way of seduceing. Haven't we all been persuaded one time or another? 

          For real, the type of person I am.....I would just be honest right up front. If the person really had an attraction towards me....maybe we could just work something out...and I'm not talking about tradingNo No SEX either. I would work hard for what ever I received...being grateiful has a way of touching another's heart. When someone really knows you in their heart they would do anything for you with no strings attached! It's true you can fall in love with a person long after you meet them....really getting to know somebody takes much time and effort. SleepSorry I didn't mean to go on so long.....til the next time!Wink

            I'd love to meet a sugar momma. I'm stubborn too, but with that kind of money I'd adjust. No problem !

            I can manage a grouchy b**ch and have my fun on the side.

            There are ways around everything. Wink

            I Agree! And that's the Gods honest truth!!!!

              If I wasn't attracted to the person or we had nothing in common, then honestly no I probably wouldn't. I have no desire to be in a relationship with someone who I am not compatible with...no matter how much money they have or won.

              I agree with "ThatScaryChick"!

              And, money isn't everything? I could not do it myself. Personally it would not be worth the false effort.

                I wouldn't.     I wouldn't be happy  marrying for money.

                 

                 

                I have married a winner however,  he is my soulmate and that makes both of us a winner.

                  No way!  I may not be wealthy, but I basically do what I want when I want and "get by fine" in my retirement.  At this age I'm likely too set in my ways to marry anyone again, let alone someone who would likely think he should have most of the say since he has most of the money.

                      Yes, but not for that reason alone. I have to have an emotional attraction to them.

                        I chose yes, but it is more like a maybe.

                        I am pretty open minded.

                        If they were a good person, and I liked being around them, but did not have the physical thing going, I might not marry them normally. With lots of lottery money the freedom to do what you want and enjoy your time might make up for less sparks in the bedroom. Also, in your scenario, the person is totally into you, which is also a huge plus. Having someone that is dedicated and loyal to you would be some pretty positive stuff, unless they were psycho about it.

                        Looks really are not everything to me. They are a definate plus if a girl has them, but if she has a great personality, it is usally enough to make up for any physical problems.

                        If they had a nasty personality, I would not want to hang out with them past 1-2 dates, so definately a no.

                        Basically, the money would push a borderline situation into a yes.

                          No, I know what I would expect from someone if I was a jackpot winner that permitted them to marry me and there is no way I would ever put myself in a similar position.   But then I'm not the type of person that seek the company of people with lots of money and I don't have much respect for those who do.

                            I forgot to answer my own question. In all honesty I would at least give it a try. Why not make it so my life is  alot easier. I wouldn't have to worry about high gas prices and our messed up economy. I think most people would love to live without the worries of any financial burdens. Would I feel proud that I'm kinda freeloading no but I would make the best out of the situation. I wouldnt care what others thought of me either.
