If you won the jackpot, would you get married? Not because of the jackpot.   I'd be pretty skeptical if I won the jackpot.  People are two-faced when money is shown.  I've heard numerous horror stories where people are having a successful and loving marriage; when money is shoved in their faces, they become two-faced.   I'd be scared.  Don't try to act innocent, money changes everyones' behavior.

    Whatever was going on BEFORE they got the money will just seem like it is magnified.  A person should know the person they marry. if one of them wants out, they wanted out anyway...the money just gave them more of an incentive to get out.

    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

    You never know when you will get another hit.

      It doesn't matter if they got married BEFORE they got the money.  Like I said, money make people two-faced.  This is why I'm skeptical.

          Married? No thanks, I have zero interest in getting married now or after winning a jackpot and if for some reason I were to, which I won't, there certainly would be a prenuptial agreement signed before hand and if they don't like it, oh well. But again, I wouldn't get married so it wouldn't matter. If I met someone after winning I wouldn't tell that person anything about where my money came from anything other than my self employment, even if I'm my own, only client. I certainly wouldn't be flaunting my money about, that just attracts the wrong type of people in general. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't have nice things or look well off though though. I just wouldn't go about it like a fool as certain lotto losers have splurging on a bunch of crap with the only purpose being because I can buy it, if it's something I wasn't interested in before, it won't be something I'm interested in after and no one is going to change that or drag me into things I'm clueless about.

          I also believe it's also about perception and the image you put out there that will attract unsavory types and gold diggers. It's about selling an image, if you put out there they you've got things together and are also wealthy I'd imagine that certain others won't try as often to rip you off or whatever, but if you look like an unsure sap straight out of the Beverly Hillbillies who came into a lot of money and is now rich, well then you're screwed.

          You can't predict random.

              No I have no reason for marriage, I want to travel, and the money would give me the ability to finally do it.. Right now all I can do is dream of travelling.. Plus paying off the bills...

                You win big and buy a fancy house, big yacht, fast car, private jet, marry a trophy wife. 

                The house burns down, the boat sinks, the car is stolen, the jet crashes and the wife divorces you and gets the money.

                The lesson is never to buy what you can lease.  BobP

                  In that case one would hope for some good insurance and a good divorce lawyer. Big Smile

                      There are plenty of miserable marriages among poor people, too.

                         I am the eldest of the entire clan. Marriage is my duty. I just hope that I would meet a nice girl who would not drain my lottery prize.

                         Let's be realistic. Solid finance is a crucial element for a healthy marriage. Love itself won't pay the electrical bills or medical insurance.

                         Still, having your future spouse owning tens of millions dollars in the bank account will be overwhelming. You will be easily succumbed into the life of excess.

                         That's why winners who are single should find spouses with good discipline.

                          Are you Korean? When I went to Korea to teach English, I recall a couple of my Korean friends telling me that it's a Korean tradition for the eldest sons to take care of the parents and continue the family by getting married and having kids.   Geez, seems like the oldest son get screwed!

                            I would get married "again" but this time, have much, much better legal pre-nuptual agreement drafted.

                            To protect both of us.

                             

                            Hey?  Whats with the little green dressed figure in my avitar?  Did I miss some announcement?

                              I also have no desire to get married at this point. In the future, maybe, but if I were to win in the near future, marriage will not be on the menu for me.
