Recently, one man won a lottery and he decided to give away a large amount of money to his ex-wife, who is raising their two children.
The Reddit [email protected] shared that his ex-wife is an amazing mother of his two kids and his current girlfriend fumed after knowing that he is giving the part of lottery winning to his ex.
The man shared his experience of winning the lottery i=on ‘Am I the A**hole’ community on Reddit.
He wrote: ”I recently won a ‘f**k you’ amount of money. I won’t say exactly how much but it’s in the millions. It makes me feel funny even typing It’s enough to change the life of myself and my family.”
”My ex-wife is the mother of my 2 kids. She is an amazing woman and good to the bone. We divorced 6 years ago because I had an affair with my current partner.
I was in a low place in my life and I fu**ed up.She was in incredible pain but like a fu***ng saint- she allowed me to still see our kids who mean the world to me, allowed our divorce to be as pain-free as possible despite the fact that I know she was hurting.
She still is close with my parents.She is respectful to me although she refuses to talk to my gf. ”
”She was actually the first person I phoned after my mom and pops after I found out I won the lottery. She was pleased for me, joked that I could take the kids on a world round trip, and that was that. Nothing else. as soon as I won, I knew I wanted to give her a significant amount. I still love her. She’s the mother of my babies and I feel like this is some small tiny way I can show her that I’m not a complete f**k up.”
”She deserves to know that I care despite my mistakes. She also works a shi**y job in the public library which pays her peanuts- she would actually be able to pursue her hobbies this way.
Give our kids a better life between us.I haven’t discussed this with my ex yet, but I have with my parents who strongly agree and my lawyer who was very surprised but on board. ”
He updated a little saying:
”Long story short, when I told my gf, she was my livid. Screaming that I’m disrespecting her, accusing me of still being in love with my ex wife- I’m not in love with her. We’ve both grown apart, but of course I still love her for being an excellent co parenting partner and mother to my kids. My gf is threatening to break up with me, and tbh I’m feeling incredibly relieved over the threats. I don’t plan on changing my plans, but AITA?”
