    I don't know about that cause I've seen some women my age and I swear I don't know why the man is even with them.

    LOL or do you mean age as far as whether or not someone would get married.   HAHAHA I can't even get the guy I'm seeing to call me his g/f  and he's made it very clear he will NEVER marry again. Ok I need to win a big jackpot LOL so I can see if he changes his mind hehe!

    What tiggs meant was he's a lot older then you women here so he's a lot smarter and wiser..So if tiggs hits big time he's a lot smarter then the women not on the LP Lotto also..Did I say that clear enough..:).......

        Winning the lottery has nothing to do with getting married.

        Meeting the right person has everything to do with getting married.

        I Agree! Good Communication is paramount: The fact is that a conversation is by rights a two way street, where each person takes a turn at listening and talking. A real conversation gives equal power to both parties involved in a normal, everyday situation.

        A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

                          do you feel that worthless, than a woman could see Nothing in you that's meaningful and lasting for her; other than your stinking Money????!!!  Remember she is not sleeping with your money, she has to sleep with you night, after night, after night....and not loving or liking anything about you???!!!..uufff No!!!

                          Worthless? Who said anything about that? 

                          I am sure there are some that would sleep night after night with guys they didn't like - because they like the standard of living.  There are many women married to rich guys and they cheat on their husbands...one has to assume they wouldn't take that risk if they loved those guys 100%.

                          Not all women have the standards you have jr.

                          Besides, I have NEVER met anyone that didn't like something about me.  I bring great pleasure to some by coming into a room and I also bring great pleasure to others by leaving the room! Big Grin

                            Lol...I think that would be true of almost all humans, yes we are not going to be liked by everyone Thank GOD for that!

                            Thank you for the Standard Thing; but I am almost positive that most are not the Gold digging types.   I would hate to think it is not so!   As I said before,  my Casual friend told me that her Parents turned her into this what I call "domestic Prostitute"  I told her she is a big girl now and can end it anytime she wanted to reclaim her decency!

                            forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

                              Let's face it.  Lottery winners face numerous problems including divorce, lawsuits, news media, and greedy relatives.  For a single person who wins the lottery prize, marriage is a compromise to the control that winner has over the prize.  Not only that, but how do you know that the legions of men or women who run toward the lottery winner is actually interested in that person for him/her and not because of the money? 

                               

                              I thought about this topic about "The Lottery and Marriage" this morning.  What would you do in this situation?  Would you remain single or would you marry later in life after winning a prize?  What are your thoughts on this situation?

                              You need a "maybe" or "it depends" selection to your poll! Cuz it does depend - on finding someone worth marrying - same basic search criteria would apply even after winning the lottery .... well with maybe a few extra criteria

                              *human

                              *good sense of humor

                              *not an alcoholic or druggie

                              *loves kids and cats (and ok dogs too)

                              *generous of heart

                              *intelligent

                              *likes to travel

                              *not only likes me as I am but also likes my friends

                              *liberal politics and conservative behavior

                              *already has enough of his own $$ that I know he's not just after mine
