RAYNHAM, Mass. – On Thursday, Timothy Sullivan promised his new wife to be lawfully wedded “for richer or for poorer.”

On Friday, Sullivan became a couple million dollars richer to fulfill that promise.

The postal worker from Raynham, Massachusetts, won a $4 million lottery prize just one day after marrying his wife, Tanya. He had taken part in the “100X The Cash” $10 ticket game, the Massachusetts State Lottery said in a statement.

Claiming the instant prize from the lottery’s Braintree headquarters on Friday, Sullivan opted to take $2.6 million — the amount after taxes — in a one-time cash sum.

The newlyweds plan to use the money to go on a honeymoon, pay off student loans, buy two new cars and build an “oasis” in their backyard, according to the lottery statement.

The store where the winner purchased the ticket will receive a $40,000 bonus, the lottery said.
