Would You Dump Your Partner If You Won The Lottery?
I recently wrote a story about people in "Stepping stone" relationships. In these situations, one partner is "settling" while waiting for someone "better" to come along. It appears that a sudden windfall would prove to be a catalyst in that process. A recent survey from the Irish Independent says nearly 1 in 5 (19%) respondents would dump their significant other if they won a lottery or Powerball. One fourth of those said they'd use their new found wealth to immediately search for a relationship "upgrade." Maybe the vow should be "til death, or wealth do us part."
