A divorce would definitely be in my best interests if I ever won.  The main reason is that NO ONE is going to ever tell me what to do again, or how to spend my money.

I'm no lawyer or particularly experienced in divorce proceedings, but I expect a judge would award at least half your winnings to your spouse, maybe even more if you have children, PLUS generous child support.

    Let me fix the pole question for you:  "How many men has the court lottery destroyed?" there thats betterBig Grin

     

    Women have been winning the lottery of divorce for decades.  It might be wrong but in a way its right. Men by backing down have brought it on themselves.  Every man is ready to sell out the next man quick so he can be with her at any cost.......and what a cost to society it has been.  Broken homes.  Kids raised to be degenerates with no discipline in the household.  A family fortune that could have been saved for retirement over time blown, divided, and lost for the next generation.  Not to mention a greater need for medicare and social security thats got the country financially bankrupted for sure.

     

    I feel no pity for the situation any longer.  That time is way past for me.  I don't like the actions of the women at all but the men are at fault for letting it get this far.  I have tried to teach them something as friends and it caused friction between us.  They get mad at me for telling them the truth about their "sweet thang" or "the system".   Time goes by.  A few years later they come crawling back in the gym with their tail between their legs crying about their rape in court. 

    "thanks for playing" the court says and if the check ain't on time we will arrest you buddy!  Of course i guess it was all ok while the new was on because.....after all.... to use sully16's words from an earlier post wifey was deserving because she was "putting out"!ROFL

        I would say any marriages that winning the lottery ended were already in the dump but neither had the

        means to go their own way.   In this case winning the lottery was a blessing, not a curse.

          There's at least one case where someone bought a winning ticket, didn't tell the spouse, got a quick divorce, cashed in... then the spouse found out. The judge awarded the entire jackpot to the spouse.

            I would certainly accelerate her departure via Greyhound back to Radiator Springs where I found her.  My girlfriend.  There I said it!  LOL

            NOW, can anybody explain to me how Bud Post's girlfriend was entitled to 1/3 of his money if they weren't married?  There was no evidence they agreed to share the jackpot.

              If I won the jackpot I'd move to Utah and pick up a few new wives

                They really frown on that sort of thing in Utah. The Arizona Strip (the bit of Arizona north of the Grand Canyon and south of the Utah border, where neither state's government has much of a presence) is where the action's at.

                  Nobody frowns on someone with $600M, they grin, smile and say "How can we help you!"

                   

                  Besides, I learned from Big Love that you just legally marry one and the rest are unofficial wives.  State can't do anything about that.  They actually tried once but the courts pretty much told them they are allowed to regulate marriage but not unofficial marriages. 

                  Stay away from the Arizona strip polygamists, those folks are just plain inbred crazy.  I'd end up under someone's patio expansion like Abraham Shakespeare.
