Will Elin Nordegren Stay With Tiger Woods?

What Would You Do If You Were Elin Nordegren?

Whether or not Elin Nordegren stands by Tiger when he makes his much anticipated public appearance today, her next move will be closely watched. Will she stay, or will she go?

Cameras caught Elin out and about yesterday wearing Nike gear, a sign that she might be sticking to Tiger just like his sponsor. Then again, neither of the two has been wearing their wedding rings, so we never know.

Regardless of what really went down between Tiger and his pack of alleged "mistresses," Elin has clearly been through a lot these last few months. But, if Tiger is dedicated to recovering from his reported sex addiction, maybe she wants to support him, while keeping her family in one piece. What would you do if you were in her shoes?

Anon @ 36: actually, according to the Catholic Church (a few hundred years ago), you CAN buy your way into heaven ! Buy an "indulgence" and sail on through those pearly gates !

I think Tiger is sorry.....sorry that he got caught. Let's face it, he is not apologizing because he had some big epiphany and realized what he was doing was wrong. He is apologizing because he seriously damaged his career and reputation. If he really gave a shit about his family, he wouldn't have cheated with so many people, including unprotected sex with porn stars no less. The fact is, he would still be out there doing it if he hadn't gotten caught, so I have NO sympathy. She should bail.

Being from a broken home (I hate that phrase...seriously!), I'd wait and see. It's very tough on the children if the parents divorce, though I know it was the right decision for my parents. However....it's gonna take a LOT more work to gain my trust back, and not anytime soon. So the man's gonna have to work his everlovin' behind to gain my trust again, and for a long time.

I'd leave. But, depending on the pre-nup, she might stick it out for a while to ensure she and the kids are taken care of. I couldn't stay with a guy if he cheated on my multiple times with multiple women, there would be no trust left.

I would leave if I were her. If is was one woman or so that would probably be different. However, the number of women that he has been with throughout their relationship is just ridiculous. I believe there are more as well, who didn't speak up. I doubt if she would ever want to sleep with him again anytime soon, and he is going to be looking for sex from somewhere.

this is a little too close to home for me. but here is my two cents: she should wait and see. for the love of her children and the love of tiger woods it wouldn't hurt to stay to see if he does really change. out of self respect to herself it may be best to stay away from being intimate with the guy. this is a personal decision she alone has to make and i think whatever her decision the rest of us should respect that as well. she's a smart woman and i'm sure she knows that whether she stays or goes society will judge her and brand her one way or another. personally, i know it takes a lot of courage and determination to stay. and not it's not easy. my mother stuck it out with my father for 33 yrs, and she still misses him now that he's gone (God rest his soul) even though he cheated on her over and over again (probably in the double digits though not near as many as tiger woods... i don't think.) i always swore i would never be like her and stay in a cheating relationship, but here i am now 12 blessed years later full of cheating ex's, and this last relationship is actually making me think about being patient while he explores his option! not him personally (though he asks me to be patient), but the relationship itself. i didn't think it was possible for me to even want to stay, but something- just something makes me want to stay and make it work. (besides the whole love and having been together 4 years thing.) sounds crazy huh, ladies? staying with a man who's obviously not committed to the relationship. yeah, it's tough when you're in this position. you hate his guts for making a fool of you. you feel sorry for him for not being able to control himself. you're embarrassed by the whole situation. you love your children/family and don't want to give up. you hate yourself for not being able to walk away, but you'll hate yourself for not being there to help his sorry ass. it's all sorts of complicated. i wish her and any woman in this position luck, and may God keep you safe.

Anon @ 20 you have a good point...this would definitely qualify as one of those "bad times".

Anonymous, truer words have never been spoken. Ella, his face is just a little chubby, its due to the lack of physical activity, food, and the stress.

It would be great if Tiger and Elin could stay married and get closer through such a tragedy but I don't think that's very realistic considering the situation. There comes a point when it's just too much. I don't think Elin will ever look at Tiger the same knowing what she knows and really what the whole world knows.

I would go and try to have a "friendly" relationship for the children and get half of his money.

Thank you running, that's what I thought. I'd leave if only to teach my children to have some respect for yourself. He risked her LIFE when having unprotected sex with all these skanks. She was pregnant with his child. If she caught HIV from him, the kid could have gotten infected, too! I understand he's supposedly an addict, which makes the situation even more dificult, but I say leave his sorry ass for the sake of the children and your self respect!!
