If you were married and won the lottery, would you split it and then divorce?

          I've been married 25yrs and love my  husband..why would I want to leave after we won? Lol but I'm sure ppl that do divorce, they were not a solid union to begin with.

              I think it'd be better to split it IN the divorce rather than split it and THEN divorce. With some of these lawsuits I've seen on the internet I wouldn't be surprised if you split with your wife/husband and then they tried to sue you after the divorce for half your stuff.

              But to answer the question, no. If I were to get married it would be with someone I wouldn't want to just leave because one of us got a ton of money.

                Just curious as to how many would give up half and say 'seeya' to their soon-to-be ex-spouse.

                If you don't like the question, don't answer it.

                If your married half of it belongs to your spouse. Whether you stay together or not.

                    I'm already divorced but if I were still married to the same man I would not divorce him just because I won the lottery!  I would think the money would be for the both of us.

                          This thread makes me wonder, for those in a situation where it's "cheaper to keep her (or him)" would a jackpot be a major score, as in , "Gods of freedom I'm yours", or would it take "cheaper to keep her" and put it on steroids?

                          ______________________________

                          As for the question in the OP, I do think that if it wasn't a jointly owned ticket and only one spouse had played it or signed it, and there was a divorce, that the non-winner would eventually come back asking for more.

                          Haven't there been threads in the News about such cases?

                          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.
