Tiger Woods & Elin Nordegren Move Forward With Divorce

Keepin' it on the downlow

In the wake of the insanely embarrassing Tiger Woods Cheating Scandal, Tiger and his wife Elin Nordegren went thru a few month phase of what looked to be an attempt to keep their marriage intact. Altho the couple were never seen out in public in any affectionate fashion, they did appear to seem willing to work towards salvaging their marriage in an attempt to put Tiger‘s infidelitous extramarital affairs behind them. Just a couple of weeks ago, Elin left the US and returned home to her native Sweden without Tiger … which seemed to signal a break down in their attempt to salvage their marriage. Just recently, Elin returned home to be with her husband … and now TMZ is reporting that the couple are dunzo for good. According to today’s report, Tiger and Elin have decided to divorce and are hoping to do so as quickly and as quietly as possible:

TMZ has learned Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are trying to strike agreements on child custody and division of assets … and then quietly and quickly file divorce papers to end their marriage. Sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ … the most important thing for both Tiger and Elin is keeping the terms of the divorce confidential. We’re told Tiger has a team — partly based in NYC — that is working on the division of assets. But … as TMZ first told you … the key player is West Palm Beach lawyer Thomas Sasser, an expert in child custody agreements that involve more than one jurisdiction. Sources say one of the options is to actually file for divorce in Sweden — Elin wants to move there with the kids and Tiger would have to submit to the jurisdiction of the court. Wherever the divorce is filed, the plan is to keep the custody and property settlement agreements out of the court file. We’re told the quicker and quieter the divorce, the better. The big issue, we’re told — Tiger wants either custody or visitation, and assurance that he can go into court and enforce the agreement if Elin violates it. We’re told Tiger wants the option to go to either a Swedish or American court to enforce the custody agreement. And sources say … the couple has not reached agreement on any of the major issues … at least not yet.

This sounds about right. I could never, for the life of me, envision a scenario where Elin would be able to forgive and forget everything that Tiger put her thru both in public and in private. It would take a lot, I would imagine, for her to be able to stay married to Tiger Woods (especially considering how little regard he appears to have had for their marriage vows) and apparently her needs were not or could not be met. On Tiger‘s end, I have to say, I also see where he is coming from. Yes, he is a self-admitted cheating scuzz but he does appear to love his children very much. My guess is that they will be able to hammer out the terms of their divorce to everyone’s satisfaction in that Elin will get a nice settlement and Tiger will get the access to his children that he wants. I wouldn’t be surprised if Elin and the children moved to Sweden permanently with the caveat that they return to the US on a regular basis so that the kids could see their father. As they get older, they’ll prolly make the long trek back and forth on with nannies or on their own. What a crappy situation all around for the kids. Tiger Woods has ruined so many things due to his disgusting behavior … and the saddest part of his destruction has to be the ruination of his kids’ young lives with both of their parents.

    As poorly as married Tiger acted, I am interested to see the newly single Tiger out on the town.

    i didn’t really care for him before but now he just seems sleazy and a douche. I think his soon to be ex will be able to BUY Sweden soon, let alone live there too once she’s done with him, I hope she goes for the balls lol…..

    Extremely well put, Trent!

    Well said Trent! I agree that important thing here is that Tiger ruined those little kids lives because he couldn’t keep it in his pants. Get that money Elin!

  5. Manda

    I agree Trent! The kids are the ones who really suffered. I’m glad that Elin has made a decision…and it’s probably the right one.

  6. Well Put Trent, It is a shame that his selfish behavior had to translate to his innocent children…. And yet same sex couples can’t marry again why??? when obviously the sanctity of marriage is not respected the way it should anymore… It makes me sick… I will continue to fight for GLBT rights.

    I think this is going to be a quick uncontested divorce for the benefit of all parties involved, but mostly Tiger, due to the overwhelming evidence available against him. All the details will be spelled out from custody to money matters. Tiger should consider himself very lucky if he gets share custody because no responsible Court on this land will overlook Tiger Woods serious emotional and character issues, before granting parental custody on this case. The court basically looks for what is to be in the best interest of the children. Among the things considered are which parent is best suited and capable to meet the day to day needs of the children, provide a stable home, love, a nurturing environment and emotional wellbeing. It seems to me that Elin Nordegren has been a loving, caring mother to her children. She has being there for her children all along, while Tiger was running around with every W-H-O-R-E, in and out of town. To me Tiger has been more of an absentee or part- time father. I also think that Elin has been in favor of sharing the children’s custody with Tiger providing he keeps clean from addictions and continues rehab.

    It’s sad to see any marriage end, but the damage done here is beyond repair. Tiger was unable to honor his vows and Elin is right to divorce him. Tiger is now free to be with anyone he wants to be ( or continue to be ) and no longer hurt his family. I’m sure whatever pre-nup she signed will be enforced and she’ll leave the marriage with what she deserves. They’re both fairly young and will recover. Her, from his terrible betrayal and him from being so completely and utterly selfish.

    “Yes, he is a self-admitted cheating scuzz but he does appear to love his children very much”

    If he love his children very much, he wouldn’t cheat. He wd do anything he can to keep them safe.

    He totally failed there.
