    Like I tell my wife whenever she asks, "While I might have the money to leave you, I pray to G-d that I have enough common sense not to."

    We have already decided that when we win the "Big One", we will divide the money evenly.   She can put her share in her bank account and spend the money anyway she deems fit.  I can put my share in my bank account and spend the money anyway she deems fit.

        Me? Leave Sugar Britches? Nah!

        I've had good reason to leave all them other ones though.

        For example, some wimmins don't know when to stop complainin' about someone snoring. If your husband snores, tell him about it nicely - ONCE!

          For people who said no, just make sure your spose won't leave YOU and take half.

                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?

                I am not married but whatever you are running for, you have my vote!

                  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.

                  I agree TSC
                  If someone would even consider saying yes to that question shows how they truly feel about their spouse even  now. 

                  That means it is  time to rethink the relationship as it currently stands.

                  I am definatley NOT afraid to say it.    There is NO WAY in this world that I would even THINK of leaving my husband for  $1, 10 $100 million.  He has been there for me like no one has,   through job layoffs, depression and  heartache.  You can't BUY that kind of love.

                  I'd probably curse out the person who offered me the money to do it!

                      But there's no way to  "make sure" what my husband or anybody else would do.   And if anyone thinks their spouse would,  might want to look at their situation.
                      But I can say this....

                      When I lost my job in the mortgage crisis,  and even now that my salary has dropped to less than 1/2 of what it was,  my
                      husband has shown me that his heart  after 25 years is sincere, has stepped up to the financial plate and does not hold my situation against me.

                      There is no money in the world that is worth the loss of that.
                      WHEN I WIN my Fantasy Five jackpot, after giving God his cut, my husband will be the next person to get a nice surprise.
                      Bet on that.

                        My answer is no.

                        Considering some of the reasons either way in this thread, for those who say yes, well, if that was the case you'd never know another moment's peace, not only from the suddenly ex getting a lawyer but factor in the stalkers once word got out.

                        Also, wasn't there a case talked about here on LP where someone got divorced six months or so prior to hitting a jackpot and the ex hired a lawyer and got at least half, if not more of it?

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          I don't have a wife or a girlfriend so I am not leaving any of them. If I do win, none of them will ever find out if I have one in the future.

                            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.

                            $13,000 and she is yours. Cheers
