  • WOW I am surprised athow many people don't think that a million after taxes isn't much money. Even if you are taxed at 50% it's $500,000 bucks!!! To me that's alot of money!!!!

  • Maybe. A million isn't much after taxes. They'd barely be able to pay off their house with that, so there wouldn't be much to share lol. BUT I am an only child so if they did decide to share I wouldn't have to split it with anyone haha.

  • Absolutely not. I borrowed $165 on a Tuesday to buy the rest my college books, Friday I paid my mom back. Even to this day, over 5 years later, she still feels like I owe her that $165, and has refused to help out any other time I've needed it because of this. So I don't even THINK about getting money from my parents.

  • They'd probably buy me a car or something that I want. A million isn't that much money these days.

  • My mother, no. My dad and stepmom, yes. They would share.

  • I think they would help me with my bills but i wouldnt expect anything from them...they have already done so much for me as i was growing up.

  • I know they would at least buy me a house, and I'd do the same if I won as well!

  • After taxes its not a lot of money and i have 2 other sisters. So I would want them to be very secure and have enough to retire and do everything they wanted to do. I do think that would do a family vacation for us all to be together somewhere exotic and memerable

  • If my mom won, I would get a lot and then some. If my dad won, I would see much of anything.
