Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren are legally divorced after nine months since his car crash. It was then that news leaked out that Tiger was having extramarital affairs with more than one woman.
A few months later, Tiger did make a pubic apology. Tiger realizes that he still has a long way to go. He has been in a sex rehabilitation for the past few months. According to Tiger, “I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment. Although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.” Tiger has admitted that he has been unfaithful to his wife of five years, Elin. He also realizes what a poor role model he has been to his children and how embarrassing this will be when they grow up and read the scandal about their father.
These nine months have been a horrible time for Elin. She felt like she had a happy marriage and trusted Tiger with all her heart. They have two small children.
All this while, Tiger has had a great reputation. Suddenly, he is in the spotlight with negative news surrounding him all over. Although the Bible does say that your sin will find you out, this has to be very overwhelming to suddenly be exposed to all this bad news. Again, you and I are no better than him. He just happened to be caught. We all sin and do wrong, but thank God for His forgiveness on a daily basis. Jesus shed His blood for you and me to cleanse us from our sins so we could have eternal life with Him.
My prayer is that Tiger will come in contact with someone who can talk to him about God’s love and forgiveness. His marriage can be saved if Elin truly believes that he is a different person and will not go back to his old ways. This could only happen if he surrenders his life totally to Christ and is a new person.
I personally think that if Tiger really loved Elin, that he would have done anything to keep his marriage together. He did go for counseling but for some reason, Elin was not convinced that he would ever change. She was willing to give him another chance to make things work out. In the end, things just turned sour and now this couple is no longer together. They both wish each other a happy life and the best for the future.
