    Tiger Woods divorce
    I think we all agree that Tiger caused this mess. In Joseph Cordell’s article on (link below) he wrote, “This whole mess can be easily avoided: When you decide to marry, you make the commitment to dedicate yourself to your wife. The best way for Tiger to have avoided this crisis would not have been with a better prenup, but by being a better husband.”

    Terrible Advice
    What terrible advice. How to get a stronger prenup and make your wife keep quiet about the bad things you do? What Tiger should have done differently is pretty simple. If he hadn’t cheated so outrageously and callously, he wouldn’t have had to worry about covering up his behavior. He would probably still be married and have custody of his kids and his money.
