I know those vows say through rich or through poor, but would you pack, if you won the lottery?

      Why do you want to know? What would you do?

          Cause somedays I would.  I know I'm not the only one that feels this way.  Some may be afraid to say.   But, of course, if you had millions, the spouse would more than likely, make sure he/she never gets under your skin again.  Friends till the end.

            No way,  I'd ask my husbandif he wanted to put a bid in on cutlass Bobs sweet ride. Then we'd have hours of fun zooming around America.

              No, I honor my marriage vows and we will be together and share--my dream is to call my husband and have him meet me at the CA Lottery Offiice in Santa Ana for both of us to redeem the big winning MM/SL/Fantasy 5 or Daily Derby jackpot and it will happen very soonDance

                Why leave the wife and basically forfeit half of your winnings in alimony and/or marital divisions in divorce court?

                A better idea is to lie and hide your assets in irrevocable trusts.   :)

                A happy naive wife is better than a vindictive wife with a lawyer.

                  I don't have a spouse at the moment, but no, I wouldn't just pack up and leave if I won the lottery. If I was truly unhappy with someone, I would probably end the relationship before I came into a bunch of money.

                    In that case, how would you be able to spend your newly found wealth without her knowing ?

                    It would be hell to have all that money, and can't spend it!!!

                    Are you going to keep driving that Pinto for years and years just to prove  to your wife that you're still broke....?....lol

                    It wouldn't work....

                      Concerning the irrevocable trust, she would probably sue you for not revealing it to her while married, and would win based on that. The very moment she realizes you're spending the type of money only a wealthy man can have, she'll get her lawyer.

                      The only way to get away with it is to live a double life. But that will catch up to you sooner or later. So it's a lost cause.

                      Just split the money, and you'll be able to sleep at night.

                          I could not leave my spouse if I won the lottery. Why is this, you ask? I am single and do not have a spouse.

                          Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                          In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                            Have we really become a society where a marriage license is equivalent to purchasing a lottery ticket and there are only a handful of winners that reach that pinnacle of everlasting wealth of love?

                            It severely cringes my soul that these selfish individuals have the audacity to feel threatened when their lackluster affairs and violations of trust are discovered and then, resort to restraining orders of protection, avoid marriage counseling like the plague, and destroy families for generations to come.

                            Simply put, there is no excuse nor explanation, whatsoever, for this ultimate act of human treason. It violates the most viable institution of trust that can be bestowed on another human being and is, without question, a moral crime of unspeakable dishonor.

                            What is also tragic however, is that these demeaning lifestyle of events are infecting future generations, allowing our young society (children) to deem these improprieties as a normal part of life and consequently, influence them to act in this manner when dealing in their own marital relationships.

                            If you  believe very strongly in the foundation of marriage and all that it represents, while knowing in your heart, that the most significant attribute that represents this unity is by far: Trust.

                            We, as a human influence in this world, should always strive to honor this institution that has been entrusted to us by God.

                            After all, even in this secular world, what does society revolve around? (love & money). We have always supported this belief when it comes to finances. Isn't it about time we devoted the same respect concerning love?

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

                              That sound like a plan. Plus after 37 why retrain a new husband. At least I know this one.
