The divorced man in me thought had he won the lottery two days previous, he wouldn't have to share it.  So, how lucky is this guy really?  Then I realized, I needed therapy.  This lotto winner clearly has no problems with sharing, as he handed the ticket off to his new bride to scratch in the first place.  What a way to start a marriage.  I'm not jealous at all.  OK, in this economy, I'm pretty dang jealous.  Not to mention, I'm a huge Prince fan and this guy just won $1 million dollars playing Michigan Lottery’s Diamond & Pearls instant game.

The newlywed decided to go with the one lump sum of $693,000 after taxes.  The luckiest man in Northern Michigan has decided to remain anonymous but did tell the Michigan Lottery that he plans on investing his winnings.
