Divorce final for Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren

Tiger-and-elin

It's official -- Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are divorced.

It's the conclusion to a saga that began with a minor car accident outside their Florida home around Thanksgiving 2009 and ran an ugly course through myriad mistresses, millions of dollars in lost endorsements and wild speculation about how much the divorce settlement would cost the world's top golfer.

"We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future," the two said in a statement released by her lawyers. Both Tiger and Elin appeared Monday ...

... in Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Fla., officials told TMZ.

Terms of the divorce weren't disclosed, except that Woods and Nordegren will share parenting of their two children, ages 3 and 1.

Tiger Woods committed the ultimate betrayal, deception and humiliation against Elin Nordegren and their children. A wife does not get over such ordeal in a short period of time. I think that Elin Nordegren is a woman with class, dignity and self respect and she would have never stay with a man like Tiger Woods, whom she may not respect and trust anymore. Tiger Woods seems to be a troubled man with serious character and emotional issues that appears to be long standing. Elin seems to know that the emotional demands of staying married to Tiger Woods would have been very high and not worth it. Elin has a big responsibility to herself and her two small children. I commend Elin for her wise decision, for being a caring and loving mother and for her great courage, dignity and class during this horrid time in her life. I wish them all the best!!!

Please, Tiger had no business marrying his cleaning lady, waitress or whatever she was. All she bought to the table was s3x and he tired of that rather fast. She'll get her loot and live a happy now. Which was probably her goal from the beginning and Tiger was too stupid to see it.

THE ENVELOPE please! And the winner of best divorce is....

Regardless of what Elin Nordegren went through, she should have been prosecuted for assault. Had Tiger hit Elin, it would have been a different story.

Wow Shawn, you're not bitter sounding at all are you?

Tiger was an idiot. How did he ever expect it to end any other way when he had 14+ slut mistress on the side and he being Tiger? He should have gotten divorce first and then no one would have condemn him for dozen of mistress he had. In fact, he would have been hail as a modern day Wilt Chamberlain.

Good. Maybe Tiger can get back to winning now.

What else would you expect from a Stanford grad? Good luck Elin!

what's up with Shawn? - twisted sense of personal values there

Lets file that under YA THINK?! Unless she plans to take up pole dancing, wearing Dixie Dukes and working on her sleaze skillz um YEAH it's been OVER. It's like with cats - they say once the cat starts urinating in places other than it's litter box it's a ruined cat and will forever be a DIRTY CAT. tiger = dirty cat

tiger learns.... this goes back to the lee marvin case in 1975. matrimony is fraud not love. it begins and ends with laws and lawyers. money and money wanters.

Thank you Shawn for your willingness to speak what you feel, elin was a set-up and she got what she went after. To bad TW won't be the last to fall prey to the dirty trap

Clearly Elin married Tiger because he is such a nice guy with a fantastic personality, and his money and fame did not enter into the equation. Tiger is such a great looking dude, too, it's completely obvious that a Swedish model would chase him down and marry him, even if his job was stocking shoes at Target. Obviously. Or maybe she married him because the way he swings a golf club is like poetry to her. Cry me a river, Elin.

Anyone who marries for money does not deserve sympathy, although it is a shame that their children will now feel the effects of all this. At the end of the day, most opinions I've read concerning Tiger's affairs are sanctimonious and ill-founded. Tiger was, and probably still is, the greatest golfer of all time. The endorsement deals that fell apart - all those companies should be embarrassed. Tiger is an awesome golfer, and his private life is nobody's business, as he did not break any laws.

you bad

Good for you, Elin, I did not think a Swede would settle long for a sack of garbage like TW, they have too much self-respect for that. The man is an addict, plain and simple. She was wise to realize that sooner rather than later and set sail. Tiger had no business getting married. He had better realize he wants a revolving door of partners rather than "the one." Makes life a LOT easier, really it does. If he can sort that one out maybe his golf game will flow accordingly.

All's well that end's well and this one needed to end. NCW

Thats what you deserve Tiger Wood (aka) sex addict,womenizer & sex maniac
I hope you learn a big lession,you are free now and can do whatever you want
to do.

Exactly. Elin is not a victim here. Hell, I wish I could be such a "victim". Please. Let Tiger get back to Golf.

The rich and famous, they are not like the rest of us. As a society we do love to seem them eat it though. Comes with the fame game.

Ms. Elin.....just another lady....seized the oppertiunty to CASH IN.....THIS OTHER PERSON WHO COMMENTED IN THIS ARTICLE...said she has "class"....just the oppsite....elin has zero class,and is a money whore.She cleaned house...took the kids...held then for ransom....raped their bank account. Mrs clinton..now there is CLASS ACT!......

Elin, I am glad you know how to seek the help you need in times like these. Elin is going forward building this new life for herself and the kids. Tiger can now be a Father and any type of man he wants to be. Elin is not stopping him from being a good father or successful golfer. She never did. Tiger did that all by himself. Tiger states he learn about himself and wants to be a better man because that is what he wants for himself and his kids. Hope so, kids needs the best from both parents.

Please, give me a break! Elin brought nothing to the table, was not present while the money was earned, therefore she should not have been given any more than any other individual who has a pre-nup. The last time I checked it is not against the law to cheat; wrong yes, but If we start paying wives when husbands cheat I suspect there would be a world full of broke men!Question: If she were black would you even care?

Now they can move on and wish them both the very best!
