You break up with your SO because you no longer love him/her. He/she is still desperately in love with you, but respects your wishes and leaves you alone.

After a few weeks of no communication, you find out that your ex has won the jackpot in the lottery and is now a multimillionaire. You know for a fact that he/she still loves you and would give you anything you asked.

What would you do? Would you get back in touch with your ex?

Well I was self serving enough to leave him, I think I'd be self serving enough to stay the heck away :9

if i didn't love him, i wouldn't use him for his money. then i'd be an asshole and eventually we'd both end up unhappy.

This is legit my current worry.
I want to break up. I'm sick of him not having a job and letting his parents pay his bills, blah blah blah.
I know as soon as I fucking do, he'll get hired for an amazing dream job, making good money. UGH.

Haha well that's kind of different, isn't it? If you are breaking up over lack of ambition/drive and then his circumstances change then you could legitimately reconsider the relationship in the light of his new job. As the OP is not, as far as I am aware, breaking up with her boyfriend because he isn't a lottery winner, it's probably not the same!

Happened to me. Broke up because he was going nowhere, literally a week later gets a pretty shit hot job. But the truth is, the going nowhere thing was just one reason out of many. If it's the only reason you want to break up - it's not really (in my opinion) enough. There's usually underlying issues that won't get fixed by a good job.

Oh yeah, it's only one of many reasons, just the one that makes me nuts the most, LOL

If I was financially struggling a lot I'd probably try to get back in touch with him and potentially accept assistance (eh it's just money) but be up front about no romantic relationship.

I might get back in touch and be like "hey remember all that money I owe you? how about we call things even"

I owe my boyfriend like $600 so that would be pretty nice to not have to pay him back

Hopefully not. i feel like that would be pretty shitty of me and all my exes are nice guys so I wouldn't want to do that to them.

No. And I wouldn't let him try to buy me back either. Though it would be tempting.

I stayed with my abusive ex-husband for a long time because of money. He was very wealthy and I was accostumed to a certain lifestyle. I let those things and that luxury make me believe I was happy. One day I realized that no amount of money in the world was worth sacrificing finding real lasting happiness, so I left. I'm so poor now. He got everything in the divorce because I didn't try to get anything. It was his and I didn't want it. But, even though money can be a struggle at times, I'm happier than I've ever been in my life.

So, to answer the question, No, I would not get back in touch with him.

If I broke up with him, it's because it's what is right. It's his money. I would leave him alone and wish him well. Of course I would be a bit sad it didn't work out and be a bit annoyed with fate about the timing.

I can't see that happening, however, because I love him so :)

Hahahha I've often wondered this. I would probably congratulate them and secretly hope they would give me money, but if I didn't love them anymore I like to think I wouldn't get back with them for money.

If it was my most recent ex though, I feel like we're such good friends that we would give eachother money regardless though
