woodwormI haven't told the Wife, and kids...
Just thought I'd share my personal experience, and see if anyone else can relate.
My wife, and kids have no idea I've been investing in this. I just don't want them hounding me, or having expectations.
I've been collecting the currency, and putting it where they can't find it. Only my parents know, if someone of you recall my story from the other board which brought my into this in the first place.

Woodworm Continues: I want to explain everything after this happens; Including what my parents told me happened to them. Thoughts? Anyone else waiting until the RV to tell their family.
Dell1981: my wife knows and my kids don't
Outlikalion: I have not told me husband or children either. I have 2 children in college and 2 younger children, 6 and 2. I have a business, i struggle between ebb and flow and NYU's tuition is approx. 32k a semester.
I know this opportunity is a blessing and proof positive God hears my pleas. My husband is too pessimistic to know about this- I will not allow anyone's negative energy to touch my blessing.
I am so emotional today I cant stop crying. I love being a mother and I just feel so incredibly blessed today not only because of the money but the sheer opportunity, the fact that my name is in the pot of the winning, so very grateful.
batman10cbh: kinda the same story, my wife knows I bought some 3 years ago. But I haven't told her a thing of what's going on I haven't mentioned any close calls for the RV or nothing. So she kinda knows nothing about it at all but it will be awesome an incredible when I pick her up from work and Teller we are starting a whole new life. I can't wait go RV
wxman: Not telling the kids...I get that. Not telling the wife. Error! I didn't tell my wife for a week and she was not happy...now... she can't wait to lead our non-profit. Everyone should have something to look forward to. The only thing you should never tell your wife is, "honey that dress makes you look fat." Marriage is not about secrets it's about open communication. I guarantee she will feel hurt.
My4sons: My kids for sure know as they sing "waitin' for the RV" and "super fantastic" all the time! Guess we haven't hidden it very well.... LOL!
tx-icesk8mom: My kids know. There is 2 other families we know that have currency. All of our kids know about it and they know to only talk to each other about it. My kids are so supportive. We are a team.
I did try to tell my ex about it so he can invest in it. But he was so negative about it that I stopped after I told him about the gift I that started me on this. He has no clue how much I really have.
Drugster: LOL...Well tx-icesk8mom...I guess we know one of the reasons why he is your ex. Obviously he is not smart enough to listen to you......"+)
Suzy: SOME DON'T KNOW AND WON'T BE ABLE TO TELL THEM BECAUSE OF THE NDA. I'LL JUST LEAVE THEM IN SUSPENSE. LOL.....
Metamorphosis2: I think that's good. They'll be so surprised! Metamorphosis2

Taxmom: Told one daughter. She was very negative. Didn't bother to tell other daughter. I have a full production presentation ready for them, including a musical journey to get some points across.
Hope they get it. Ok, call me a drama queen! :) This will be my moment. They are old enough to have careers established and families started. Seem to be financially conservative.
I have prayed long and hard about how much to share with them. Pray I am not making a mistake.
I don't have a spouse, so can't say what I would do. My feeling is you have to know your spouse and how they would deal with the journey. Each case is unique. Good luck to all of us in dealing with family and friends. I pray all accept their blessings with grace.
isa52bc: If my hubby were still alive, I would NOT have told him about it until it RV'd. He would have thought I was nuts and would have been one of those negative Ned's. I did share the info with my sister and she has invested as well.
Thank you Divine Creator for all the abundance of peace, love, joy and prosperity. I am open to receive the blessings of the RV in its highest possible outcome so that I may help build a better future for those in need.
kpron2001: Just my Son
roxy2: That was very unselfish of you! They didn't have to endure the ups and downs on this long ride!
Woodworm: Thank you Roxy. If she knew I think she'd be stressed out as well. She's expecting so we have enough on our plate.
Aura Blue: I told my husband, who has since invested, and my daughter because she accompanied me on the road trips to purchase. My son will benefit with no questions asked. He wouldn't care where the $ came from anyway lol.
Besides, when you sign the NDA, you can not run your mouth period! So you may want to spill the beans to your wife and kids on the ride to the bank. IJS
Woodworm: I can see what you are saying. I really don't think my wife will care. I could be wrong, but I don't see it being a problem. Me "Honey we are rich" Her "How could you"!
HeyB: I tried to tell one friend and after a few looks and comments I knew that telling anyone else would be a huge mistake. No one in my family knows and I have never mentioned it to my friend again.
It is very hard not to share the possibility of good news but as money is tight for most in my family, spending it on dinar would be an event I'd be ridiculed for. When it actually happens I am just going to say that I made an investment. I'll share enough so that I won't be made fun of, I'm sure.

Aura Blue: HeyB, I wouldn't even say that because they may want to get in to details. I am going to implement a "no questions asked" rule as I have NO problems telling people (family/friends included),"nunya." lol
I toiled for weeks about whether or not to tell other family members because I want to see them prosper as well. But I know my fam. I did, however, give them particular websites to go to and printed out material for them to read. I pretty much fed them the info and left it up to them without implicating myself! Who knows, they may be invested!!!
HMS Victory: Spouse knows, but attributes the many missed forecasts as evidence it will never happen. We just finished putting all the babies through college, BS degrees earned for all. It's not likely they will be privy to the full extent of our windfall for several years. We just spent the last three decades raising the best kids we could. There is no reason to mess that up now. We will let them work, make their own
RAJAF: The whole family knows because we've been involved in this for years. My mother left some to all of us. Elder brother thought it was all a scam and sent his share to younger brother. We don't have contact with him and won't tell him post RV for obvious reasons and due to the NDA.
All siblings on both sides of the family have dinar (we gave it to them, our children, nephews & nieces). Took awhile to get some of them to invest for themselves. Wives were open.. husbands skeptics.
My one son still thinks it won't happen along with our teen, another son is invested and the oldest son is clueless. We'll help him afterwards.
Ironic how each family member's perspective is so different when it comes to their opinion about this investment.
Jjjones: Of course I told my spouse, nothing worse than a secret, good or bad there's no good reason for a secret no matter how much you want to justify it. As equal partners in a marriage would you be comfortable if your spouse spent 100's or 1000's of dollars without knowledge? IMHO
We won't tell our kids because there is no reason. They will still have to work and struggle to get where they want to go. Handing them money is doing them no favors, thus we'll perhaps give them a nice present here and there but they'll have to do what we did; work hard. Otherwise, if they know mom and dad have a big checkbook, well, let's put it this way...there will be no end to the, "I just need a couple of dollars..."
Soblessed: I have not told anyone. The only one that supposedly knows is the person that told me about it. I shared with him that I did not want to disclose it to anyone. I have a cousin that was at a presentation he was giving, and the cousin called me and asked did I have some Dinar.
I could tell that he was told, so I admitted I brought a little, but I really don't want anyone to know. I have many reasons I don't want anyone to know. I don't want to hear the judgement, and I'm not trying to convince anyone. I have been involved in many opportunities, many worked out , but some didn't.
I have not even shared with my husband. He is not a optimist and does not know how to keep a secret.
On top of that his children and their Mothers(Baby Mamas) would probably try to see how they will sue us for some of it (LOL) There is nothing funny when it comes to money. I have been planning how I can handle everything quietly and secretly.
Aura Blue: Jjjones, Everyone's situation is different! That may work well in your household but not in others!
Pinkroses: I come from a huge family. Just told a few of my siblings at first. Then later a couple more of my many siblings. Some invested, some didn't. However, I will share with all my immediate family of those who did not invest and a couple of dear friends who reached out to me when things have been so bleak financially. After talking to proper advisors, I wish to help out many others. This has been a gift of an opportunity given to my children and myself which I will forever be grateful for.
Goldminer: Very interesting to see how others deal with family dynamics. I'm an eight year investor and the dinar has been a major issue with my spouse. She "hates" the dinar due to my continuing interest in the eventual CE. We almost divorced over this investment.
She maintains it will never be worth more than the meager amount paid per dinar.
So, for the past year or two, there has been no mention of the dinar in our home. I have one friend who invested and shares the roller coaster with me. Going forward, my spouse will only know of the CE when she sees the deposit slip of 25k note.
She will find out more as we meet with a tax attorney and begin to structure our asset protection and investment portfolio and cash in the remainder of IQN in several banks. I'll try and not be too smug about the wisdom of investing by remembering the heart ache of many expected RV's and understand how some individuals are just not wired to accept the challenges of an exotic investment. Best to all. See you on the other side. Gm
Sandyd: I'm one of those that can't keep quite, I told my husband and my kids. After 40 yrs of marriage You'd think I would learn to keep my mouth shut. HAHA
Aura Blue: soblessed IS sosmart LOL I feel ya!
Twindaddy: Probably best! Wish I hadn't told my wife but she understands and doesnt even ask. I'm sure all this is very sur-real to her (like no way this can happen). Although on a different note it has allowed us to dream together and discuss future. My wife can handle it! All depends on what yours can handle.
Boobiej2u: I'm another don't have a better half either to tell,told my youngest daughter very nagative because she thinks it's a scam and know that I don't have the money to loss she is very loving and pertective of me and me serving I'm 63 yrs youngblankstare so I've Not told my other daughter or son but as we get the word "GO RV Go" look out the will be jumping for joy!!!!!! GOD BE WILLINGbiggrin

The Rock: jjjones, I am afraid my wife will jeopardize us. She can't seem to keep herself quiet about this. She's always been a bit of a gossip, and I'm quite worried that she will break the agreements in the NDA by her lack of discretion. So there are good reasons to keep it a secret, it just depends on the spouse and the type of marriage relationship that exists between the couple.
Ididit: I asked my husband, before I invested, he told me NO don't do it, I asked him why not? He couldn't give me an answer, so I did my home work and I invested all of my bonus checks from my work, and I haven't told him anything until it is over. do what your heart tells you to do.
Spaghetti: Woodworm, I don't know your situation. But in general, I would tell the wife something NOW, especially if you plan to have her go with you to the bank, so she can be ready.
You don't need to tell her how much you spent, or how much you expect to get, but tell her something so that she doesn't make too many other plans for herself or for you, for the next few days. If she is not going with you to the bank, then tell her afterwards.
I told my husband, a couple months ago; that went well, so I told my adult daughter. She then bought her own dinar and dong, and we plan to make back-to-back appointments at the same bank, and all 3 of us will go together.
Spaghetti: I can appreciate Soblessed's situation with her husband's kids and their mothers possibly suing. My adult daughter has an ex-husband. My biggest concern has been him finding out, and trying to get money. They currently have shared custody of 3 minor children, and I could see him trying to use the kids as a weapon to get money.
Amarie1121: I haven't told anyone in my family either. The only people who know are my boyfriend and the person who brought me in on the investment( my son's father).
My boyfriend kind of skeptical about the whole thing, but he encourages. I didn't want to tell the rest of my family because I know I would get negative reactions. I was thinking about gifting them with currency when this all goes down, but I thought about what Tony had said about the confusion and I really don't have time to explain everything to them.
I hope when everything happens that they will just accept the blessing and ask no questions. We will see.smile GO RV!!!!!biggrin
Claral: Yes - Only my sister knows (also invested), kids very limited - (are you on a CC call again?). Most of my family would have said I was insane. I will gift them, but any knowledge of how I can possibly give a gift is completely CLASSIFIED. Most are military - they should totally understand that terminology.
Rbear: My son got me into this but my other two kids don't know a thing we plan on making a trust so all their dreams can come true what a Christmas gift wow
get1later: Wish I hadn't told my wife......she calls it "FAKE MONEY or PHONEY MONEY"
However my kids & Stepkids have made currency investments in both IQN & VN

JoeFryday: My wife is a non believer. Thinks this is major scam....said I could "have" my millions. Well, they will be "OUR" millions, I just might spend some before I tell her. It's going to be a "SuperFantastic" Christmas I think !!!!
