How much money would it take for you to get back with your ex?
For Eileen Murray, 53, it’s going to take more than winning a $273 million jackpot for her to get back with her ex-husband, Mike Weirsky, according to the New York Post.

“He’s not appealing to me all of a sudden because he has this money.”
Murray and Weirsky divorced in October after 15 years of marriage.
She declined to state the reason for the divorce. However, it’s clear that she was the sole breadwinner by the end of the relationship.
According to the Post, Murray worked as a cost analyst for a utility company, while Weirsky, 54, was unemployed. She said that she is still paying her ex-husband spousal support.
Despite her financial contributions, Murray said she doesn’t plan to seek repayment.
“I’m not going after anything. I have morals. I know what I’ve worked for and it’s everything that I have.”
However, Murray said despite her doubts, she hopes that Weirsky “does the right thing.”
“Think about it. How long did I work? How long did I support him? I had to give him a lot of money in the divorce. You tell me what’s the moral thing to do.”
Regardless of what her ex decides to do, Murray said she never plans to ask him for anything and doesn’t plan on talking with Weirsky for a few months. Although, he said during a press conference that she contacted him March 7.
“He’ll think I’m there with my hand out and I have no intention to do that.”
Further, Murray remains positive and sends her ex-husband well-wishes.
“I truly wish him well … though I know he doesn’t believe that. I want him to surround himself with good people. I don’t think anybody should be taken advantage of.”
After taxes, Wiersky will collect around $162.5 million. Murray believes her ex-husband will use his winnings to support his family and possibly donate to animal charities.
