Elin may not be a saint, but I think she was perfect for Tiger because she didn't seek the limelight Tiger's celebrity status offered her "if" she was the type that wanted it. I truly believe she loved him - and all she wanted was a loving, connected and devoted family.

I was just piggy-backing your quote, :

--- that gave me the idea that they both were a team in the fight for privacy. We know they both like privacy but putting a $50 million tag on it? That lawsuit didn't happen without Elin's blessing.

Yes, true, - within her family compound. We just don't know anything about her character.

As hurt as Elin must be I just do not see her ever forgiving Tiger, nor trusting him.
This is a woman who tried to reconciliate with her husband the senator for 5 months, after him admitting of having a mistress down South.

"South Carolina’s first lady, a former Wall Street vice-president who helped launch her husband’s political career, filed for divorce Friday more than five months after his tearful public confession of an affair with an Argentine woman."

"Her divorce complaint did not mention money, property or custody arrangements for the couple’s four sons.

"The defendant has engaged in a sexual relationship with a woman other than plaintiff," the complaint reads. "Plaintiff has not condoned that relationship and is informed and believes that she is entitled to a divorce . . . from the defendant on the grounds of adultery.""

--- and that was just a single mistress that Jenny couldn't stomach. How about 11+ of them???

At the very beginning of these revelations, Oprah reached out to Woods in an attempt to get him on her show. It was widely reported that she did this.

Supposedly Tiger trusts Oprah. Personally, I think an interview with her would be a farce. She'd probably interview him without a studio audience and toss softball questions at him.

If I white person had said that..... I'm not sure if you see it that way too. It's not clear to me. However, AA's can not afford this way of thinking at all.

That's very common. You start out big and litigate a settlement for a reasonable amount. Of course Tiger and Elin were both equally damaged by the yacht manufacturer breaching the contract agreement.

I think it's a very safe bet that Elin was a very devoted wife and mother. That said, if it's true that a person's character has to do with his or her ability to love and be loved - I'd say Elin has extremely high character. If it's true that a person's character has to do with his or her personality - I'd say Elin has a very down-to-earth and level-headed character.
