Tiger Woods And Elin Nordegren: Time Apart, Healing Betrayal?
Huffington Post - 4 months
Tiger Woods opened up about his relationship with ex-wife Elin Nordegren this week. The couple ended their marriage in 2010 after Tiger's cheating scandal, but now they have managed to build an amicable friendship. With time, Elin seems to have gotten past the betrayal of her ex-husband's infidelity, which is a challenge for many couples, in order to do so. Tiger and Elin share two children, so this must be a welcome development for all of them. While some couples are able to find higher ground and continue to make their marriage work after an affair, others realize that the intensity of the pain of the incident is just too much and that they are better apart, as was the case for Elin and Tiger. Either way, initially there can be so much anger that it takes effort to not drag the children into it. This can be especially difficult if the spouses have parted and find themselves alone. The one who was betrayed feels that their whole world is turned upside down, and wants to get back at ...

Tiger Woods Admits Something Surprising About Ex Elin Nordegren
Huffington Post - 4 months
Tiger Woods has a surprising BFF: His ex-wife Elin Nordegren.  On Thursday night, Woods paid a visit to the “Late Show,” where host Stephen Colbert got a little personal about the golf pro’s private life.  “You told Time magazine less than a year ago that she is one of your best friends. How is that possible? Keeping your ex-wife your best friend, given how that ended, my friend,” Colbert sly asked the sports superstar. “That’s more impressive than being 11-time PGA Player of the Year. Honest to God, how do you do that? How did you guys work that out?” Woods ― who divorced Nordegren in 2010 after his numerous infidelities came to light ― responded with a laugh and a really great explanation. “It becomes two simple things, OK? We have Sam and we have Charlie. And we love them so much that we are going to whatever it takes to make that work. That’s how it happened,” he said to audience applause.  “She’s been one of my best friends and I’ve talked to her a ...

Huffington Post - over 1 year
Until their split in May, Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods were one of the most talked-about couples in sports.  In a new interview with The New York Times, Vonn gives some insight into why the pair called it quits after three years. "Jumping into a relationship right away after getting a divorce was probably not the smartest move on my part," Vonn told the paper. (She and ex-husband Thomas Vonn split in November 2011 after four years of marriage.) “Thomas was really my first boyfriend, so I didn’t have a lot of dating experience,” she said.  Still, the ski star had nothing but good things to say about her relationship with Woods. “I don’t regret anything. I loved Tiger, and I had an amazing three years with him. But it was a learning experience as well. With every relationship, you learn what you need and what you want in a partner," she said.
