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?

    This post reminds me of a joke that is common among the guys that I know, all of who play the lottery.  And the joke goes something like this.  "If I won the lottery, the first thing that I would do is call my wife and tell her, pack your things, honey, I just won the lottery!  And my wife would respond, "That's great, honey, where are we going?"  And I would tell her, "I'm not going anywhere, but you've got to get the heck out!"

    Money can't buy you happiness, but I sure could afford the misery that it brings! Wink

      As a divorced woman who has been lied to and cheated on....no. Not now. Not in the future. Regardless of before or after I win the jackpot.  I seem to have developed trust issues. I'll stick with my little dogs, my kittie cats, and my horses. There's enough love there, and from my kids and my friends, to keep me happy.

       

      Gee Art, nice group you hang with....but I do vision a bunch of average Joes sitting around drinking beer or playing cards saying just this thing. And their average Janes upstairs giggling over how to do the same.  Life goes on.....

        As an elderly widow who was married to one man for 39 years, I have no particular desire to marry again, jackpot or not.  In the remote chance that I did, I'd definitely insist upon a prenuptial agreement.

          Why are you only asking single men and women?  LOL   I mean, if you win $200 million you can afford to have 2 or 3 husbands.  Still, it's easier to just feed them and send them home.

            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 am. And I feel really anxious because I am getting my bachelor's degree at a state university at the age of 33. It's 10 years too late.

             Well, since my parents plan to move to a senior housing, technically I don't have to support them under the same roof. But I still have to give them some allowances often. It will be nice if I win a few million dollars after tax, not to exceed 10 million dollars.

             Come to think of it, I don't need $100 million dollars or more. Not even 20 million dollars after tax. Actually, I'd have trouble finding a reliable spouse if I have too much money. This is LA. I know that some models and actresses want to find...ahem, SPONSORS. And I don't want to be one. I want to find someone who can be mutually supportive, regardless of the race and ethnicity.

             Actually I like girls with Northern European heritage. :)

              Well, I should mention that these are the guys that I work with and that I work in an entirely male environment.  I work at a Water Reclamation Facility.  Outside of work I don't "hang" with these guys.  I'm pretty much a loner.

               

              I liken myself to Henry David Thoreau in that "I prefer my own company."  Don't get me wrong, I love humanity, but I'm just not fond of people.  ;-)

              Money can't buy you happiness, but I sure could afford the misery that it brings! Wink

                I Agree!

                I've never been much of a "people person" especially with a group of people I don't know and have no interest in knowing. I very much prefer to keep to myself and feel little need to go out and meet new people. Of course if they find out you have millions and millions of dollars you won't have to go anywhere to meet them, they'll all come to you.

                You can't predict random.
