Do you ever play scratchers or powerball etc... ect... etc... without your other(wife,husband,other)knowing about it. How do you hide your money and if you hit big do you share the win with them.. I play alot but my husband doesnt know how much I spend . Its not alot and I do have a good paying job. But when he knows ive bought tickets he rolles his eyes at me.... But I just know Im going to hit big one day .
IS that wrong or right. Some guys,girls buy playstation games and those cost alot...just wondering if you hide it too

    No, I don't "cheat"

    My husband finally stopped playing his numbers, because of the economy.  But I, like you   I still feel that I have just as much a chance as anyone else so I still play. I told him that I still play even though he doesn't and he's ok with it. However,  I lowered the amount from $15 to $10 per play but I still play.  It's my only vice and I could blow $20 per week easily on  video rentals or something which I have stopped doing now.

      No one needs to know. As long as you are doing the right thing, play on a budget, and if you won you put the money to good use and share it with people you love. Your husband may have his own views on lotto play, may link you to the chronic gambler that lost everything; their home, job, car, family, and friends. With good talk with him that your play style is not associated with the chronic gambler then he will understand and be more supportive. Then again, some may never understand the dreams we have as lotto player.

        I never hide my thoughts about playing lottery games when I was married to my ex-wife. In fact, I asked several times if she would like to sit down and try to figure out numbers for a next drawing together. She wasn't interested. But for some reason she would always comment on my small winnings of under twenty five bucks. With the attitude of "What's mine is mine & What's yours is mine" is one of the reasons I fired her.

          It's that thing called "financial infidelity".   If you are paying your bills, saving and buying the necessary things, why would you hide it.

            I think you should have your money, his/her money and then shared money. The shared money is for bills and things you do and spend together. The your money, well, you can do whatever you want and yes I believe he/she doesn't have to know. In a perfect relationship your partner understand you completely and we all know that's not the case. You have you're own vision of what it takes to hit it and how much you need to spend. He/she might not understand that and your habits can cause friction especially when it comes to playing the lottery (unless of course you win a jackpot and all is forgiven :-) ) Don't feel guilty, it's none of his/her business unless it becomes a gambling problem where you start using your "shared money".  

            Play to win!

                      well no i don't tell him every time I play.  It's hard enough to get him to help with the bills and if he knew I had the $$$ to spend on lotto he would contribute even less!!!

                            I think a healthy relationship there are NO secrets.  In this case it's just lottery tickets.  If you have the extra money then I wouldn't worry about it.  If he confronts you be honest.  NEVER LIE.  Just say that you thought he already knew.  (Assuming he knows you have played in the past)  It's really nothing to fret over.  It's not like you're having an affair.

                            How are you going to win if you don't play?
