Finally, the saga has drawn to a close.
Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren announced their divorce on Monday, ending speculation about what would become of their marriage.
A statement posted today on tigerwoods.com reads:
“Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods confirmed today that they have divorced. Judgment was entered today in Bay County (Florida) Circuit Court dissolving the marriage. The Judgment provides for shared parenting of their two children.”
In addition, the couple also issued the following joint statement, which focuses on their two children…Sam, 3, and Charlie, 1:
“We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future. 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. Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern.”
With that, the epic saga that began with the SUV crash heard around the world last Thanksgiving night approaches its final chapter.
No word on exactly what the terms were of the divorce settlement, but at one time, estimates were approaching that of the national debt.
Hopefully, all parties now can obtain a sense of closure and move on with their lives.
