For those tempted to finish this sentence with descriptions of quick departures or dismemberment, it might be enlightening to hear what a pair of experienced divorce lawyers would say to the bride of the Tiger.
Kristen and Charles Hofheimer of Virginia Beach have provided just such counsel in a blog post here, based on Virginia domestic relations law. Their first admonition – don’t sleep with the wayward husband. Doing so condones whatever unfaithful liaisons you knew about at the time. (The good news here is there appears to be a boundless reservoir of new sordid stories emerging daily, and what you did last night doesn’t condone what you just found out about today.)
Other advice: don’t assume you’ve got the goods on Tiger, even if he confesses. Virginia law requires clear and convincing proof of adultery – a high standard. Also, the Hofheimers warn, think twice before you kill the golden goose. A public blow up could scotch endorsement deals that are as much a part of your future as his.
