An angry woman has sued her husband after he kept his lottery winnings to himself.
The bizarre marital dispute takes place in China where a man only known as Mr. Zhou won $1.5 million in the lottery back in 2021.
For two years, the man managed to keep his good luck a secret from his wife, whereas he refused to share any of the money with her.
During these two years, however, Zhou transferred one-fifth of his earnings to his sister while paying a substantial amount for his ex’s new apartment.
Now, the man’s wife finally discovered that her husband had won the lottery. Upset by his scheme to keep the money away from her, the woman has since filed for divorce and demanded more than half of the man’s hidden fortune due to the fact that she was his wife at the time of the win and that he hid the winnings from her.
Fortunately for the upset wife, the court sided with her and ordered Mr. Zhou to pay her $400,000.
While the incident definitely seems bizarre and unusual, this isn’t the first time a man kept his lottery winnings a secret from his wife.
Just last year, a man identified only as Mr. Li claimed the jackpot in a yellow costume to avoid being recognized by his wife.
As the man insisted, he refuses to share his winnings with his better half because he doesn’t want her to get lazy and stop working.
“I did not tell my wife and child for fear that they would be too complacent and would not work or work hard in the future,” he said in an interview with Nanning Evening News.
