You win the lottery...

... you won enough money that all your worries, needs, wants are taken care of: do you leave your partner?

AfunaMbatata Sat 23-Sep-17 16:08:51

Not sure but I'd certainly buy separate houses and live apart.

Would you?

Absolutely not. What great times we could enjoy together with no money worries - happy days!

Rainybo Sat 23-Sep-17 16:10:19

No. I would definitely stay with my DP.

However winning the lottery and leaving used to be something I wished for when I was with ex-H.

HerRoyalNotness Sat 23-Sep-17 16:10:31

Most likely.

But then again, we could live instead of exist so we might be happier anyway.

Twoweekcruise Sat 23-Sep-17 16:11:01

No, we would live the dream together. But I would buy a much, much bigger bed!

TheNaze73 Sat 23-Sep-17 16:11:02

Absolutely not

No. Though I'd begrudge him less for his obsession with shopping at Waitrose.

ZippyCameBack Sat 23-Sep-17 16:15:26

No, I'd keep him but get both of us away from his grasping family.

iklboo Sat 23-Sep-17 16:15:33

Definitely not.

No way!

You've got me fantasising now about the trip we'd take to Bhutan...

jointsarehurting Sat 23-Sep-17 16:18:07

No. We'd enjoy our new life together.

How about you, OP?

My marriage can be difficult. I don't stay for the money but for the life we have built together.

Racheyg Sat 23-Sep-17 16:20:24

No. We would have a dream life together. Build own own home have our dream jobs. The kids would have their own swimming pool grin

Sn0tnose Sat 23-Sep-17 16:27:41

Not a chance. We daydream about what we'll do when we do win it. Spending more time together is a big part of that.

I think that if I was wanting to win so that I could leave, I'd rather be broke and alone.

Joysmum Sat 23-Sep-17 16:30:54

No, and WE would have won the lottery, not just me.

Aquamarine1029 Sat 23-Sep-17 16:43:27

No way. We would finally be able to do all of things we dream of doing together. It would be amazing!

pointythings Sat 23-Sep-17 16:44:13

Depends on whether he says sober following rehab.

bluit Sat 23-Sep-17 16:50:19

No, but I would indulge his hypochondria with private health care so he stops moaning about his doctor.
