I am furious at the headlines this week screaming about latest photos of Tiger Woods‘ wife running errands without her wedding ring. One picture shows her with her daughter. Let us set it straight, the wife of Tiger Woods, Elin Nordegren, is more than a victim of an unfaithful husband. Elin’s future, finances and family are coming apart around her for the decision that her husband Tiger Woods made. Unleashing the paparazzi on her to stalk her wherever she and her children goes is just plain wrong and further punishes the wrong person.
I know an Oregon couple that is just recovering from a devastating affair from an unfaithful wife. Like Tiger Woods, the affair went on for many years. The wife wanted to bail but the husband refused to break the marriage apart and opted for marriage counseling. It was difficult. At one point both were ready to split. After several painful weeks a change happened, faults were confessed by both sides and the pair came back together.
There may be a chance that Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren will weather the painful storm and keep the family together. This is in the best interest of the children who also are victims. The paparazzi, by stalking the wife, are making a horrible situation much worse. It makes it much harder to repair a family when you are being attacked everywhere you go. I know many will say, Tiger Woods should have thought of that before he cheated. That is unfair to say for the rest of the family.
If you understand my point then please avoid buying those tabloid magazines and clicking those awful links.
