Now that Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods' divorce is final, people from all walks of life can come up with their own conclusions about what went wrong. The haters are accusing her of being a golddigger; others are saying that with all the money she is getting in the divorce settlement she has nothing to complain about.
Today Elin spoke to the media about the embarrassment she felt upon learning about her husband’s sexual escapades. I believe she is telling the truth. My gut feeling is telling me that she is very sincere when she says she did not know Tiger was having multiple affairs. When you are a stay-at-home mom, your main focus is to take care of the children. Many may argue that with Tiger’s wealth a nanny took care of the children. Elin comes across as a woman who really takes pride in raising her children instead of having a nanny do the raising.
Some people are so quick to pass negative judgment against Elin; they are forming their opinions from a materialistic point of view. She married Tiger because of his fame and clout; consequently she got what she deserved, a cheating husband. I believe she married Tiger because she genuinely loved him. It is so much easier to cast a dark shadow over someone else’s situation, but I prefer to think positively.
When is it ever right to cheat on your spouse? What woman would willingly marry a man that she knows would later cheat on her? Did Halle Berry and Christie Brinkley decide to go down the aisle because they knew ahead of time their spouse would later humiliate them? I think not!
A few will argue that men are not the only ones that cheat, women cheat too. Yes, that is very true, but what Tiger did is despicable. I have never heard of any woman cheating to the extent Tiger did.
So Elin, I believe you. I think you married Tiger because you really loved him. I am hoping you will be able to recover from this. Have courage, this too will pass.
