It's one thing for a wife to divorce her philandering husband, but is it also savvy for her to leave him to fend for himself when his career and millions of dollars are at stake? That is something Elin Nordegren, the mother of Tiger Woods's two children, has likely considered. Tomorrow, the golf great will make his first appearance since his fall from grace, and one report speculated about the impact her presence will have on public opinion. LilSugar readers had strong opinions when the story broke:
- Anonymous said: "I have never been married and do not have kids of my own, but if it were me, I don't see any way that I could stay with someone who put me through that. Not only [she] is hurt and embarrassed, but she is having to deal with this publicly. With my set of morals and values, I don't see how I could raise my kids to be strong people with a good heart if I showed them that I tolerated this behavior. Only Elin can decide what she feels she can handle and what will be best for her and the children. My deepest sympathies go out to her and I wish her nothing but the best."

- vmruby said: "I can't imagine her ever being able to muster up any forgiveness for his numerous affairs, the unprotected sex with a couple of them and for putting her health / life at risk. I believe she's going to have to dig really deep into her soul for that one. And taking all that into consideration plus the humiliation it's caused her I think she should take her kids and run, not walk, away from him as fast as her feet will take her. "
- psterling said: "I'm all about working hard to salvage whatever you can but if things are irretrievably broken, staying together for the kids benefits no one."
Three months have passed since the story broke; do you think Elin will stand by Tiger tomorrow?
