No doubt you've been following the news about golf champion Tiger Woods and his mysterious car crash over the weekend. Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, reportedly broke the back window of his SUV with two golf clubs in order to get into the vehicle and pull her husband out. However, tabloids are speculating that Elin is not nearly so innocent—that instead the accident was linked to a wild argument over reports of Tiger's infidelity and a possible affair...
I'm not going to comment on whether or not I think Tiger cheated on his wife and whether or not she then bashed his head in with a golf club out of anger and revenge. I have no idea what happened.
But I am interested in this story from a relationship point-of-view—specifically, what do people do when they find out their spouse has been cheating on them?
I've never been cheated on by my spouse, so I can only imagine how much anger, pain, and hurt an affair could cause in a relationship. I don't think violence is ever the answer; that said, I don't know if I could ever judge anyone who lost control and reacted out of rage for being cheated on by a partner, especially if there are children involved.
How do you think you would react if you found out that your spouse was cheating on you?
