The Happy Family. (HT Associated Depressed):
It's the biggest payout ever: $750M for Elin's silence on the whole ordeal. While Elin may be quiet her gal pals sure aren't. for example, one of then said, "Tiger's main fear is her telling her story after he's rebuilt his reputation, sending him back to the gutter."
Elin ended up with double the sum she originally sought, after her lawyers proved Tiger was worth much more than she thought.
Her friend explained: "Elin's legal team have done a great job digging up all sorts of assets.
"The price of the huge sum is her silence: no interviews, tell-all books, or TV appearances about this for the rest of her life -- even if Tiger dies first -- or she'll lose the lot."
This divorce will have many ramifications like the following:
1. This will deter more men from marriage - the cost of failure is too high.
2. Marriage rates will continue to decline. In the US, more households are headed by single people than married people. Never happened before.
3. This will lead to more animostity between the sexes. As if there weren't enough of that already.
4. Divorce lawyers will get all the more aggressive.
