Elin may call off Tiger divorce, say gossip websites

ORLANDO, FLORIDA - Elin Nordegren visited Tiger Woods at a sex-addiction clinic last week and hopes to save their marriage for the sake of their children, according to Internet celebrity-website reports on Tuesday.

People magazine and RadarOnline reported that the 30-year-old wants to avoid divorce, citing unnamed sources, after spending five days with the golf star as part of his rehabilitation treatment programme in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Nordegren’s parents divorced when she was a child and she wants to avoid having her children – twoyear- old daughter Sam and 50-week-old son Charlie – face the same difficulty.

“Elin wants a solid family life,” a source told People, adding: “She was a child of divorce and felt her dad slighted her. She absolutely does not want that to happen to Sam and Charlie.

“So she wants to keep her family together, even if she and Tiger live together as friends instead of lovers.” US Weekly reported that she and Woods’ management team pressured the golf superstar into taking part in the six-week programme.

Part of the programme includes a visit from patients’ spouses for about a week for Disclosure Day, when Woods would have told Nordegren about all of his affairs.

Woods, 34, has admitted to infidelity and taken an indefinite leave of absence from professional golf to solve his personal problems, even as more than 14 women have claimed sexual relationships with the golf world No. 1.

He also wants to stay married to Nordegren, according to People’s sources.

“Tiger wants to go back to being a golf star with major endorsements,” the source told People, adding: “He wants his clients, who have kids of their own, to think he is a good family man. “Keeping the family together is very important to Tiger, so he is doing whatever it takes to keep Elin from leaving him and taking the kids.”

US Weekly reported that Woods is not allowed to play golf, in addition to not having sex of any kind during the treatment programme.

A source told the magazine: “He is used to going into this robot mode of hitting a ball over and over as a way to escape. His dad taught him that at age two. But he can’t do that now.”

I feel like the couple / whoever the 'sources' are..they are just trying to paint a pretty picture that the couple a heading towards reconciliation. Whether they reconcile or not, only time will tell and their relationship tested. I understand where Elin is coming from, but seriously, how can she bring herself to share the same bed / live with a person who has slept with so many other women?? The thoughts will be haunting...
