I would cook her favorite dinner over candle light.  After dinner I would tell her. Smile

    I don't have a spouse now. If I did win, I would make sure the ground work was set with financial advisors before I told her I think. Mail For You

      I would just tell him, I think we're rich.

      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

      For a lead role in a cage?

          On a phone call from hong kong? :-)

          When I won $10,000 I woke her up. And she basically said, that's fine, and went back to bed......

              I plan to replace my 21-year-old vehicle in the next six months anyway, so should I win a jackpot before I do so, I believe I'd suggest to my significant other that we take a drive to a city about 80 miles from here, go to a fancy restaurant for lunch, then spend the afternoon looking at vehicles on the cities "auto row." (We have no auto dealers in our home town.) He'd expect me to be looking for a Honda or Subaru or the like.  But at lunch I'd inform him of the win and suggest we might look at something like a Mercedes.

                    I would only share the news with my spouse in person, and I would do so ASAP.

                      This is not a problem or blessing I have to worry about...I am freshly divorced so that money will be mine...all mine and Uncle Sam's of course.  Of course, Obamacare will get his 3.8 percent...but only once since I would highly consider relinquishing my US citizenship after winning.

                      Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                          You may want to look into the IRS codes re: expatriation taxes. Ouch.
