Wife Sues Husband for Share of Lotto Winnings Kept Secret

;)

Now this is funny.  Dude wins lotto, doesn't tell wife.  Takes off with da money.

Quote
Since the winning, Ramdass took a leave of absence from work, according to his co-workers. He hasn't shown up at the couple's home and servers can't find him to hand him the lawsuit papers.

This guy rules.

I love how they wrote it multiple times to read that he won 10.2 million, only to break it down at the end to reveal he won $600k before taxes, which works out to just about enough to buy a new car and some kielbasa.

I guess this goes to show that most people in the world do not love their spouse and would rather just leave and enjoy cash all alone. That to me is the real story here.

I would share my money with my loved one.

They were just talking about something like that this morning on the radio. Apparently there was a "survey" done on whether a person would leave their spouse for $2 million. 36% of wives say they would, 26% of husbands say they would. They got to talking about lotto winnings and life insurance. Apparently, some people are killing (or attempting to) their spouse for as little as $350,000.

That's some pretty cold blooded ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.

It is ridiculous that he is "disappearing" with probably about 350k after taxes and such. That is funny! ;D

That's a mis-stated statistic anyway.  50% of marriages end in divorce, not 50% of people who get married get divorced.  I think it's something like 70% of married people stay that way, the other 30% of the people actually account for 50% of marriages because they marry multiple times.

Ooh, that's good point I hadn't considered.  All those dillholes with 5 marriages are effing up the bell curve.

Actually, the divorce rate is getting very close to 50%.  There are multiple ways to read the data, but for practical purposes it doesn't make sense to include 70 year olds that have been married for the last 50 years because when we talk about divorce rate we're usually talking about the likelihood that any given person getting married today will stay together until one of them kicks the bucket.  Looking at it like this, which seems like how we mean to look at it unless we're just trying to make ourselves look good at the international class reunion, we see that 33% of 1st marriages will end within the first 10 years.  How many of those that are left will make it to the 20-year mark?  The 30?  Beyond that, most of them are probably in it for life, I think.

Don't be too sure with the after 30 year guess.  My Aunt and Uncle are calling it quits after about 32.  But I suppose it's a good assumption, we all were shocked as hell to hear it, it does seem like after 30 years you'd either know all the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- there is to know about somebody and be willing to live with it, or they'd be damn good at hiding it...  Oh...um..., or you'd still be madly in-love, like the day you met.

Hey Shmokes,

Question on community property. (I know you are not a lawyer yet).

If Ramdass bought the ticket in a community property state, is she legally entitled to half the money (and liable for half the taxes)?

I tried explaining to my 15-year-old son that she was entitled to half the money and his reaction was along the lines of "Fudgesicle that Cleveland steamer, I would move to Canada if she sued me!"

From what I know of it, which amounts to us talking about it in my property class for about twenty minutes one day, she is entitled to half of it, regardless of whether its a community property state.  Some states split everything up evenly, even property that one person owned prior to the marriage.  But I'm pretty sure that all states will split property that was acquired during the marriage, with the possible exception of things like family heirlooms that were handed down, and such.

On an unrelated, but interesting note, if you work to put your wife through medical school, you are not entitled to any of her increased earning potential if she decides to ditch you once she gets the degree.  I share only because I found the reasoning kind of fascinating.  You cannot apply property rules to split up the economic value of her medical degree, because her medical degree is not property.  All property is devisable.  But your wife's expertise will go to the grave with her.  She cannot put her medical degree in her will to be inherited by her child, it cannot be transferred, therefore is not property. 

Funny.  Just one of those things where you're like, "You know . . . that actually makes a strange kind of sense, doesn't it?".

Funny you mention that, because I was just being told about a former neighbor of my wife the other day. She divorced her husband while he was finishing up some extended doctor residency. As part of her divorce terms, she was granted a hefty child support amount based on his "earning potential". So you are saying the woman can get tons of money from the man, but if the wife is the big guns the man is screwed, right?

There is at least one case of this that the courts have already settled.  A woman bought a winning lottery ticket and hid it from her husband until the divorce became final.  The court ruled that he was entitled to his share because they were married when she bought the ticket.  It was a California case about 10-15 years ago.
Please!  Give me the good news first!

Child support is different, though.  That's, well, supporting his children.  It's not splitting his earnings with his wife.  It may seem difficult to separate the two, but think of it like this . . . how much money will she get from him once their child turns 18?

Child support is definitely the key separator... you won't get a huge alimony but you will get large child support since child support is a till-18 future proposition.  Alimony is a means of maintaining the past and if the person wasn't making tons then the spouse isn't entitled to tons later (under the law).

This has actually happened a lot... I read a book a couple years back about the giant '80s boom of ambulance chasers and a LOT of these guys would have their woman support them through law school and then ditch them upon graduating so that they could "trade up" once making a 6 figure salary.  It was just one more way they fit the scumbag lawyer profile.

This is an old joke guys:

Man runs in the house and exclaims "We won the LOTTO! Pack your things!"

Wife says "What weather should I pack for honey, skiing or swimming?"

Man says "It doesn't matter! I want you out of here, Now I can afford the divorce!!!"

So many people are living and staying with people even though they really don't care all that much about them just for the sake of being with a person.

I never understood why people do this. If you're not happy with a person who is supposed to be your lover why waste anymore time with them if you know it's not right. This just seems like a bad idea and a person who would waste time like this would seem to have some sort of mental problem either with not wanting to be alone or just afraid to stand up for them self. These sort of things are not healthy and should be a person's top priority. Get yourself in a happy situation.

Why would suddenly having a lot of money make a person feel like they now can get them self out of a bad situation?

A fat guy over 50 making 30 grand a year is happy with a fat gal over 50.

They'd both be happier with hot 20 something, but for a hot 20 something to be happy with them, they'll need 10 million dollars.

If he split the winnings with his wife, he'd only have 5 million, which means he'd have to settle for a hot 30 something.

...He just wanted to be the happiest he could be.



I have a feeling if things got drastically better for your “love” you’ll be in the same situation this wife is in.

Re-read the story.  He didn't get anything within binocular distance of 10 million.
