Plus, it's not like she didn't have the money before. The only difference now is that she can do what she wants with it but I don't think her lifestyle is going to change other than she won't be married to a guy who was cheating on her. It's one thing if a divorce happens and it's clear the woman was just out for the money the whole time but that's not the case here.

Why? You think she's wrong for saying Tiger shouldn't have been cheating on her? Tiger's not the victim here and when you cheat with that much money you better be prepared to pay the price. Your comment is vague though so maybe that's not what you meant to say.

I'm pretty sure that he is commenting on how it's hard to feel sorry for a woman who just got 750 million dollars dumped in her lap. Sure she's the victim but she's a victim worth 750 dollars....I'd voluntarily be the "victim" of a lot of things for that kind of coin. :-B


At the same time, I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't take any amount of money for their marriage to be over and to have it be public knowledge that they were cheated on with like 20 women.

Why? It's not their fault their partner is a cheating turd. I wouldn't give a crap who knew it, it doesn't reflect on me. People get too hung up on being "embarrassed" because their spouse is a dumbass. It's not my fault my wife sucks.

The embarrassment is only part of it. Part of that statement is the implication that they actually got cheated on by their spouse with all those people. Getting cheated on sucks: I've been there. As for people knowing, I'm a big proponent of the fact that private lives should be private, so it was mostly about being annoyed that everyone would know my business.

Wouldn't it be nice if a man could stand up in court, say that to a judge, and get summary dismissal of whatever charges she's brought against him?

It absolutely would. ;-D

And again, who the F cares who knows? It's not my fault my wife is a whore, it's not her fault her husband is a cheating douchebag either. I've been cheated on too, and yeah it does suck, but it isn't my fault and I'm not going to feel bad or embarrassed about it. In fact I felt better letting everyone I knew that my ex was a cheating whore. :-D

I agree that you shouldn't really feel embarrassed that someone is a cheating whore. That said, I'm not sure I agree that you shouldn't (at least briefly) feel bad about it. My original point was that we shouldn't call this woman lucky or say we don't feel bad for her or anything like that, because at the end of the day, she still did get betrayed and her marriage fell apart.

I must have missed where she was knocking down those 20 foot putts to win Majors... $200 million wouldn't have been enough? :-°
