An off-the-wall survey recently found that nearly 4 people in every 100 would give up their partner for a $10,000 lottery win. And the result gets worse as the winning money goes up.
An amazing 9 out of 100 would give them up for $100 million or more. But there's some good news...
Luckily nearly 78% would stick by their partner, no matter what the winning lottery amount was.
The survey by Holos Research also found some unusual facts:
58.37% said they would want to win the lottery over being famous (3.35%) or find the love of their life (38.28%).
A vast majority of those surveyed (70%) said that money can't buy happiness, but 30% said it can get you pretty darn close.
62.68% of people, despite disliking their in-laws, would not give up their mother in law for any type of lottery winning. 13.64% said they would give her up for less than $10,000. Just enough to buy their spouse an apology gift.
The survey went on to ask if they won a $100 million lottery jackpot, which of these would they do first? The results were interesting:
Roll around naked in $100 bills (1.91%)
Give money to the homeless (12.20%)
Quit your job (24.88%)
Invest half of it (61%)
What would they be most likely to do if they found a winning lottery ticket on the street They said:
Keep it for themselves (65.07%)
Try to find the owner (33.01%)
Destroy it (1.91%)
The 2015 survey was conducted online by Holos Research on behalf of online lottery pool LottoLishus
. A total of 418 individuals were polled, with a margin of error of 5%.
