    Default You have just won $50 million....

    After screaming, crying, running around the house with your shirt over your head, crying some more then collapsing... What's the first thing you do? Who do you tell? Who do you not tell?

    I'd tell DP and my parents, probably no one else. Or tell the rest of the family that we won like $1 million. Then buy a house, research charities to donate to and business to invest in.

    Oh wow. Tell DH for sure. Sit on it a bit but first thing we'd do is go on a serious house hunt for a quiet property with a few acres. Then. Quit our jobs, have a hobby farm with a beautiful garden, pay off my parents mortgage and help them financially so they can retire, work out a way for BIL to move to Australia permanently, do my phd, visit DHs home country every year. That's all we would like in life really. It's a great dream 🤑

    Tell DH immediately. Tell my family we won a mid sized amount and give them lots of money.

    Tell DH's family that we won a small amount.

    Tell DH. Buy Champagne - the good stuff. Not tell anyone for a little while. Then once we've digested it, take the kids to Maldives for a week. Come back and tell both our parents we won some money and give them enough to make them debt free and comfortable. Quit our jobs and work out what we'll do!

    I would only tell my sisters, my parents in law and Bil because they would be getting a million each, then I'd buy us a nice but not extravagant house, new cars then figure out how to invest to money to set us up.
