After my incident with my female-friend, I am skeptical about lady-friends, dates, getting married if I ever won the Mega Millions.  Even petty prizes turned everything upside down.  When it comes to money, I have trouble trusting the opposite sex.

    Pardon me, I know it says single men but let the topic at hand rest this is the only way you will find closure.

    Branching off comments or questions from yesterday is not the route to take.

    The closure that you need is not with LP members but within yourself, I wish you and your friend of 15 years all the best and I trust the Lp members were helpfull in assisting you with the answer you needed.

      I wouldn't get married whether I won or not period !

      I don't need someone nagging at me all day long. If i won, I'd have a harem of women on my 200 foot Yacht.....lol

      There would be no time for arguing and complaining.

              Why just ask the question of single men, wouldn't single women have similar thoughts?

              Personally if I had plans to be married before I won a lottery jackpot then I probably wouldn't change my mind unless I thought now that I had more money I could afford the benefits of marriage without being married.

                SmoothJuice,

                Considering the amount of money involved with a Mega Millins jackpot and the amount that you and your friend had the tiff over, what do you think anyone's reaction to linking up with a jackpot winner would be?

                Huge amounts of money really make people Scared

                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.

                  No I wouldn't get married!

                  But you can limit any type of loss of a jackpot win if you won the money before you were to get married. Any money would have to be put into a trust before the marriage and any real-estate/property that was bought before the union isn't community property (in any state). Now to save face here, you could also put said real-estate/property into a property trust! That way there is no problems with any and all court proceedings being filed against you by the other person in the so called union. Any lawyer will tell them they have no case. Because any and all personal property acquired before the union and all bank accounts belonging to either of them before the union are not community property in the eyes of the law! And that holds true in any state!

                  Just don't add them to any property deeds or to any accounts that you already held before the union/marriage and you'll be safe guarded against any and all legal actions from the other person trying to acquire/attach to them for a fair share!

                  Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

                    A guy I worked wit in the casinos hit a Keno ticket for $50,000.

                    He said he was getting marriage peoposals from every single female 21 dealer in the joint, and some of the married ones, too.

                    That was for $50,000. What do you think multi-millions would do?

                    On the other hand, there was a jackpot winner profiled on one of the Lottery Changed My Life episodes who was divorced, met a woman on the beach, they hit it off and got married and he said she didn't care about the money.

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

                      I would still get married, but she would know nothing about my winnings..i dont want my millions to make me look better, funnier/or smarter or more charming like "most" females see men with money.. or have a girl looking for a meal ticket....

                        If you love her, marry* her.

                        If you squabble about money before marriage, think twice.

                        *Don't apply for a marriage license with the state.  You don't need their permission to get married.  Under Common Law anyone can perform the ceremony.  Family and friends are witnesses to your common law marriage.  To make it 'official' you can record (not 'file') a notarized affidavit with your county court and/or place a Public Notice in your newspaper three times for three consecutive weeks.  If nobody objects (which they won't) after 30 days then you are lawfully married (which is different from "legally" married).  To divorce, just record another affidavit and/or publish another Public Notice.

                        When you register for a marriage license with the state, you are making the state a third party to your marriage.  They now control your family affairs and your assets, including your children.

                        If your woman is a golddigger, she won't go along with it because she will have no legal claim to your assets.  Good to know before you get married.

                          Go find yourself a good man then.

                          Or just stay by yourself with all you need: you

                          You can trust yourself, right?

                              Well, I'm married and would trust my better half without reservations if I won one of the jackpot games for tens of millions, because she married me when she knew I didn't have a pot to pi$$ in.  She's the best thing to ever happen to me.  However, if I were single and won, no way would I get married to any woman, at least for a few years.  Even then, it would probably be to a non American, and she would only know of my wealth after we decided to get married.

                              Be sassy and be happy.
