Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren Woods’ divorce is officially final, and it doesn’t look like there is any hope for a reconciliation between these two. In fact, they even described their marriage as “irretrievably broken”, which definitely doesn’t indicate any hope of fixing.
They may not have any warm and fuzzy feelings towards each other, but Tiger and Elin seem to have worked out a parenting plan so that their children, Sam and Charlie, will feel as little negative effects as possible from their parents’ broken union.
In the state of Florida, whenever kids are involved in a divorce situation, the parents are required to take classes on parenting to make sure that the best arrangement is carried out for their well-being. Tiger and Elin Woods’ divorce papers state that the couple has indeed finished the required four hour classes.
The estranged couple does seem to have their children’s best interests at heart, and Tiger even issued a statement saying, “While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us…The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation.”
The details of the parenting plan that Tiger and Elin agreed to were not released, but there is speculation that Elin was requesting permission to be able to take the children to Sweden whenever she wanted. She purchased a multi-million dollar estate there soon after she and Tiger split.
The exact amount of Tiger and Elin Woods’ divorce settlement wasn’t revealed, but I’m guessing that she will wind up with more than enough to live on, to say the least.
Will planned parenthood work out for these two? Let’s hope so for the sake of their kids.
