I don't have a wife, but I used to. And one thing I learned quickly is: Happy wife. Happy life! I have a feeling most married guys feel the same way because it reminds me of another one of those old sayings is: If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.

So with that said, I have to give it to this guy for standing up to his wife and ignoring everything she told him...even after they had a huge argument because he was spending so much money on scratch-off lottery tickets.

Thankfully he felt like it's better to beg forgiveness than ask permission, because he kept on buying the tickets, and then he'd hide in the bathroom to scratch them off. And last month it paid off. One of his tickets hit and he won a one million dollar jackpot!

Suddenly, full of courage, he walked out of the bathroom and told his wife. There's no word on how she reacted, but they did say they're planning to put the money toward their retirement.
