I wouldn't get married after a lottery win. I have been single my whole life, why mess up a good thing! I wouldn't want to share my winnings with a spouse, because I have waited so long to get a decent lottery win..

I want the money for myself, thank you!Dance

      Who says anyone has to share the winnings to determine a marital lifestyle? One can be married and not have to share the winnings even under current laws, there are ways to not allow it be the appetizer for betrothel or a curse. Each person has reasons for marriage and what is constituted as healthy adult independence. My Dad said it best- You are 18, earn your own , accept your own and do right on your own- See ya! ANd with that I gained the full pleasure of adulthood. Marriage doesnt compromise those standards.

      In good faith I could not answer the poll based on the way it was phrased.

              I agree with you 100% Sir L.L.

              People just think of me as what I can do for them. I would keep my old car, get another old car or two, have a single wide trailer and do my best to make it appear I am poor, and that I am unemployed because of health problems.

              "I would keep my old car, get another old car or two, have a single wide trailer and do my best to make it appear I am poor, and that I am unemployed because of health problems."

              You agreed with Lucky Loser in your original post (who said he would get married).

              I am not sure what you mean by the last part though?  Is that a plan to attract a potential husband?  Or to repel a  potential husband?  Big Grin

                  There are those who would question why Tiger Woods bought a cow when he was getting free milk everywhere he went.

                  I however, would not be among those who would ask such a ridiculous question. It is sexist and I recoil in horror at the very thought of it!

                  HaHaHa, I'm sure we will see rd, recoiling in ridiculous horror, right into the arms of yet another wife!!! LoLOLOLOLOOh..Oh my goodness!!! Too too funyyyy!LOLROFLLOLGreen laughROFL
