    Vanguard's question is on the mark. It's not about cutting Tiger loose. Elin should (and my guess is...will) cut herself loose. I can understand wanting to try to make the marriage work but...DAYAM...how can Elin, who has been betrayed so hideously, ever trust Tiger again. Even his mistresses are pi$$ed!!! Personally, I feel these "transgressions" are too extreme to regroup and move forward as a couple.

    A couple of news reports I've heard have Elin already purchasing a home in Sweden...plus Tiger moving on to his yacht. Who knows.

    Sorry, cyn!

    The fence mending is going to be tough, no doubt. While the raising and wellbeing of their two children are important, Tiger and Elin staying together in a loveless marriage just for the sake of the kids isn't good for anyone involved, in the long run.

    This story and its impact goes way beyond that of a simple marital dispute. Tiger and his admitted "infidelities," while most greatly felt within his family, also has repercussions that ripple out. Those who actually follow and understand the sport and the role that Tiger plays in it (like this blogger) nails it perfectly.

    Here's the key question to all of this: did we need to know about Tiger Woods' secret, off-the-course life? Many argue that this is an unforgivable invasion of a family's privacy, that we're interested in Tiger Woods as a golfer, not as a family man. As long as he keeps sinking long putts on Sunday afternoons, who cares what he does later that evening?

    But that just-golf-it mindset doesn't account for the fact that Woods is not "just a golfer," he's the public face of an entire corporation. What he does on his own time is not his own business, not when his actions can do financial harm to those who have invested hundreds of millions in his image. That financial impact, not the "more mistresses or more majors?" question, is the real story here.

    Remember, folks, that people have extramarital affairs for a multitude of reasons, and it does not necessarily equate to "a loveless marriage."

    The business world, which quietly rumbled this past week as the scandal grew, is finally erupting.

    Gilette, which hasn't aired any national ads/commercials using Tiger Woods since Nov. 29 (a couple of days after the accident) said it won't be featuring Tiger is any of the company's advertising for "an unspecified period of time."

    Accenture is terminating its relationship with Tiger altogether, saying the golfer is "no longer the right representative" for the global consulting and outsourcing firm.

    Nike has continued to stand by Tiger. But you have to wonder if that will continue to be the case if the company's bottom line and image begins to be impacted in a negative manner. I don't care how big a fan anyone may be of Tiger Woods as a golfer. Will women want to wear the TW logo cap? Will image conscious men want to wear the Nike logo caps and polo shirts that have been so closely associated with Tiger for over a decade?

    Well, it's not just a matter of how Tiger feels, is it? There's the feelings of Elin to consider. She's not the one getting involved in extramarital affairs.

    It's true that some married couples give each other "guilt-free" passes to engage in flings and escapades with other people. But hmmm. Elin chasing Tiger out of the house with a golf club at 2 am in the morning. Smashing his Caddy's windows. Call it a wild, off-the-wall, one-in-a-million hunch, Leo. But I don't think Tiger and Elin were one of those couples.

    And that's not what I meant, either. Think wider, FM. People can have a very loving, fulfilling and deeply affectionate relationship and yet one (or both) of them may still stray. Affairs aren't always about filling gaps in one's primary relationship; they can be about self-esteem, addiction, fantasy, rebellion, power, all kinds of things.

    And unless you've been through these scenarios (either as someone having an affair, someone whose partner is having an affair, or as the "third party"), it can be difficult to understand what drives them to happen. But it's not a kind of "understanding" that I would wish upon you or anyone here.

    Men and women have been infidelitous since as long as we have had history.
    You would think that by now we would have gotten over it.

    And if you are a celebrity, a famous person or politician, does that instantly make you "more human than human?"

    I find this fascination with celebrity infidelity a bit archaic, and way immature.

    I understand what you're saying, but I don't get why it should matter it in bigger picture. Seriously? "Better not get my husband a Gillette razor- he might cheat on me!" I know Gillette thinks people will think they support infidelity, but this is so freaking stupid. I will always wear Nike shoes because they fit my feet the best. I don't care if Charles Manson is their spokesman. And I will always use my Gillette razor b/c I like it.

    It's time for us to take back the world and stop this crap. I mean it. From Kramer to Bill Clinton to Tiger Woods. Just let people make their mistakes and deal with them privately, then move on. Quit gawking and gaping with your mouths hanging open, panting for more, pointing fingers and acting so f-ing self-righteous, then going home and ordering PPV porn. Now Tiger's taking his break from golf mostly, I think, because people can't shut the hell up. That's great. That sport has now lost its best player because of GOSSIP.

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    Some bloggers have speculated that Tiger may be sexually addicted. I suppose that could be true. But it has to be admitted that it is all too easy for anyone guilty of unfaithfulness to call their behavior an "addiction" and use that as a convenient excuse and a cop-out.

    Well, at the risk of being labeled as "small-minded" or "hopelessly old-fashioned," I will say that the foundation of true love has to be trust. Hiding things from your spouse is a classic sign of distrust. And if the trust ain't there in a marriage, then the "love" that the spouses think they feel for each other may in reality be an attachment resting on a very shaky base of co-dependency.

    I've gone through a failed marriage before, as well as being with my current wife for a very happy and successful 13 years this past November. So my observations are based on actual experience, FWIW. Been there, done that.

    With all due respect, SG, I doubt that gossip is the cause of Tiger's decision to take a break from golf.

    I definitely don't think Gillette supports adultery, but I do believe that the companies who have not severed ties with Tiger Woods or completely maintained those ties believe that "adultery is no big deal". As someone who has once worked in the matrimonial law industry (never again), I wish I could have received a dollar for every time I heard that very phrase from the mouths of attorneys. I believe it's symptomatic of a societal change from the world of our parents and grandparents.

    While I'm against the circus-like atmosphere of celebrity journalism and hope that Tiger's family can get out of the limelight and recover from this painful, exposing incident, I believe adultery should remain a taboo activity, one where the person, whether they be celebrity or an every day person, should expect some consequences in some form of societal ostracization.

    It's also too easy for those who have not suffered through addictions to call it a cop-out, due to lack of understanding.

    In agreement with you there 100% (and maybe more). Some people don't trust themselves, which makes it tough to trust others - or be capable of earning trust.

    Stop.

    If you're going to label someone as lacking understanding, at least be honest enough to do it without resorting to editing and taking a sentence (in this case, a partial sentence) out of context.

    You conveniently edited out:

    Yes, I recognize that there are people who, in fact, suffer from sexual addiction. For some people, it can be very real.

    Just as there are people with real sexual addictions, there are some others who will fake it. Why? As an easy avenue to get sympathy from the person(s) who discovered the infidelity and were hurt by it. To buy some time for themselves while going through treatment/rehab for their "addiction." To claim it as a mitigating circumstance in a divorce proceeding.

    A fake cast isn't the only way to evoke undeserved sympathy.
