Money is a tricky thing — it can bring couples together or cause lovebirds to split.
A Thai man recently fled from his wife after the couple won 6 million baht (S$270,000) in the lottery.
But not before taking the winning ticket along with him, of course.
Pornthida Chamnanwet, 23, filed a police report on Nov 17 after her husband Wijak Wannaprasit, 34, ran off with the ticket.
She had picked the lottery ticket that won first prize in a lottery draw on Nov 16.
The couple then recorded their win at a police station near Bangkok, signed their names on the lottery ticket and took a photo with it.
They had agreed to split the winnings equally, Pornthida said, and had ideas on how they would spend the prize money.
But their joy was short-lived.
